Things that make you go hmmmmm...

The lens focus function on my little powershot is dying... but I just love this picture.

as an aside- I keep asking myself "Why is life so great right now and so awful?"
-- What I mean is:
1) Is it really so great?
2) Is it really so awful?
3) Or does the contrast of the REALLY great make the awful seem so sucky?
4) Or does the SUPER suckiness make the Little great seem so HUGE?
5) Then, do the semantics of it really matter?

Is life is just a contrast of sweet and bitter, a big soup of opportunities and loses?
it just is.
and I don't know.
I guess I will keep on making stuff, taking pictures, hugging kids, going to the library, making dinner, crying, writing, planning, and dreaming... wait, I almost forgot the laundry.

there was a bit in Kalil Ghibran's The Prophet that really stood out for me. How deep your sorrow is, that is also the amount of joy you can have. He said it much better. I'm sorry you're going through the wringer so much right now.

The semantics don't matter - I found a lot of comfort in the saying that all you have to do in life is bob up and down with the waves. A big hug to you!
