reflection…. the biggest lesson I learned from photography is that when we see something we are not seeing the thing but the light being reflected off of it… So that when i perceive you i am seeing what you reflect…. or anything reflects… so the moon is a reflection.. this flower is a reflection.. it is all in the light between us and what is before us… so i squint a lot to try to see the real you or the real flower or the real water fall. Or the real new-born baby, or the real prisoner, or the real immigrant, or the real spider… or even the real me… What are you reflecting tonight? My goal… to reflect God in ever moment. I suppose this is getting easier with age, and wounds and experience and joys.. My evening reflection. just glad that there is light in the morning and a candle at night.
