Time Out of Time
One of the great gifts of art-making is an experience of "forgetting" ourselves and our self-consciousness, and stepping into something much bigger. Photography can connect us to time out of time. (Quote from Eyes of the Heart by Christine Valters Paintner)
Like photography, poetry is a tender process. We forget ourselves and let go of expectations, experience light and shadow, storytelling and re-framing, experience something new or something familiar in a new way.
Both photography and poetry offer a fresh mirror back to us.

That's a beautiful photo, Carol, wonderful reflections and a very apt illustration to your point about photography and poetry being mirrors!
Hi Juliet, thanks for your comment. The more I learn about photography and about writing poetry, the more I see similarities in "seeing" and in process.
