Boast of Quietness

I just wanted to share these beautiful words.

Boast of Quietness by Jorge Luis Borges

Writings of light assault the darkness, more prodigious than meteors.

The tall unknowable city takes over the countryside.

Sure of my life and my death, I observe the ambitious and would like to understand them.

Their day is greedy as a lariat in the air.

Their night is a rest from the rage within steel,  quick to attack.

They speak of humanity.

My humanity is in feeling we are all voices of the same poverty.

They speak of homeland.

My homeland is the rythmn of a guitar, a few portraits, an old sword, the willow grove’s visible prayer as evening falls.

Time is living me.

More silent than my shadow, I pass through the loftily covetous multitude.

They are indispensable, singular, worthy of tomorrow.

My name is someone and anyone.

I walk slowly, like one who comes from so far away he doesn’t expect to arrive.


Preview of children’s site

I have been busy photographing lots of kiddies so I thought it would be fun to explore adding a link to my site for folks interested in seeing my style when photographing families and children.  That should be ready in a couple of months.  I just wanted to share some as I go along because they are just too much fun to keep to myself.
