This was my photo for the weekend. For the week. For the month.
I got my new computer on Saturday. It is a power-horse of a machine - the fastest I've ever had, and that with over 72,000 images on it. I have hundreds of photos to process from the last several weeks. The processing is much faster now.
But this is the shot I wanted. The one that made me squeal when I caught it on the review screen, the perfectly-timed silhouette that got me out of the car to show it off, even though it was freezing, I was freezing, it was muddy.
I'm out of words tonight. I think I used them up talking with Pete today.
I don't have as many as I used to.
My thoughts come out in disjointed feelings, in fascination, in nonsense-chatter to baby, in pictures so real I swear they are speaking.
I am aware tonight. That I am not who I was, that I'm not sure what I am, that I don't know where I'm going. Old dreams mix with new, responsibility entangles passion; I am looking for a voice that isn't mine right now.
But this picture - this one gives me words. "Yes" words.
"If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" (Mt. 7:11)
I'm fresh out of ideas for what to ask. But the promise of His "yes" makes such a lovely picture to go to sleep on.
