“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me
learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let
me not pass by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face
in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to
the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”
~ Mary Jean Iron
Today, I had to walk to uni to discuss what subjects I’m taking next year.
(I chose Art History and English, by the way.
I chose what makes my heart beat.)
So I took my camera with me, to amuse myself on the walk.
I love Canberra in black and white.
I love that even in summer, Canberra can look so crisp and cool.
I love the sculptures here.
And I so very very love the above sculpture.
She sits in a pool, with a small fountain.
She is womanly, and yet she is like a water sprite.
Elongated fingers and toes, slender body.
Pensive, thoughtful, blissed out, reflecting.
I just love her.
I record my shadow falling on the grass.
Recording those moments which make up my life,
and which shape me.
they all do.
