A gentle gesture

It  was just so sweet. I mean really sweet. He held his hand out to help her, she took his hand and they held hands the entire way across the street.  Once across they thanked each other and went their separate ways. I watched as this simple moment played out. For some reason small moments […]

A loving moment

Time. What a trickster. It takes on a life of its own. It is this bucking horse rising in the air, twisting and turning , hitting the ground and rising again. You think you got a grip on it but it is all an illusion.  You don’t and you never did. So what to do […]

Swimming in change

I was standing in line at a Starbucks in Valdosta,Georgia. Some times comments just hit you in the most unexpected places. The lady in front of me was ordering her coffee and the girl behind the counter said that she hadn’t seen her for a while. She asked where she had been and what’s up. […]

An ice cream truck and a wooden table

I remember the ice cream truck coming up the street with music coming from some loudspeaker . We rushed into the house to beg for 75 cents or a bit more if we wanted some special flavor of the day. We waited in line to ask for the treat and then took our time eating […]

The sum of our choices

What has value. What has worth. What is wealth. It gets so confusing these days when 24/7 everything splashes the trivial and the shallow as anything but trivial and shallow. Yet along the way you see wealth in its purest sense. The treadmill seems important when you see everyone on it until you leave the […]

The extraordinary routine

I have a good friend who is an amazing photographer. She has the ability and gift to capture every day moments and through her talent uncover the extraordinary in what , so often , appears ordinary. A man sitting on a stool on a side street in Istanbul ,  a bird frozen in time between […]
