The night before, I slept from 6 pm to 6 am, an effect of a massage re-introducing lingering chemo poison into my body. After I dropped Emma at school I decided the park and the ducks needed my presence as much as I needed theirs.
I took photos, thinking it was about as creative as I would get today.
There is a power in place. This imperfect park holds many happy memories for me and interestingly enough, nothing overtly negative.
(No wonder it calls me.)
There are some shots I didn't get because my phone is on its last legs and likes to give up when I am barely getting started.
There is power in the missed shot. It is an invitation to return on another day.
This week started out pretty rough but in coming full circle, it is downright remarkable. Again!
Thank you for your visits and comments. I appreciate you!
