Backyard Garden, Blacksburg, VA, April 11, 2012
Laying in the dirt
to catch the last of the evening light
My dog snuggles close -
her head resting on my foot.
I type this on my three year old laptop. Duct tape holds the connection cord into the computer. It has lost its sheen, where my base of my palm rests on the keyboard. There is a folder, named 2012 Hoover. This years, non-client photos, live there. All 1,567 of them.(And yes they are backed up on two external hard drives, and copied onto CD's-) Each photo, a pausing to see. I pause a lot. It has been such a lovely beginning of 2012.
