  5. I feel like I am speechless with this photo James.

    Hauntingly beautiful. Clearly a moment that was breath taking

    1. Liz: it was breath-taking, though i'm not sure that comes through fully in the photo ... a picture is a kind of access back into a moment -- though changed -- the moment changed, the heron changed, or i am changed? all of us?

  8. i see the heron.

    i see the sticks, the wood, the dead trees, the silhouettes, the reduction, the truth.

    and then i ask - where is the heron?

    (i feel combed by the phrase, what an opportunity. i feel overwhelmed with what you did with this opportunity.)

  9. erin: or, what is the heron? if only this shape is left, is the heron here at all? or perhaps this form is heron and the incidental bits of matter that fill the form are nothing??

    i suspect both are true :-)
