The Opening


E vents and memories of them last a long time. Eventually, we process them the best that we can. Musicians write songs, writers discuss what happened with their words.

It’s also hurricane season. I’ll worry about that later. For right now, it means a lot of chances to photograph wet stuff. SparklingContinue reading “Sparkle”
