The Last Picture

A close-up of some moss through a 10x loupe.

“At the scale of a moss, walking through the woods as a six-foot human is a lot like flying over the continent at 32,000 feet. So far above the ground, and on our way to somewhere else, we run the risk of missing an entire realm which lies at our feet. Every day we pass over them without seeing. Mosses and other small beings issue an invitation to dwell for a time right at the limits of ordinary perception. All it requires of us is attentiveness. Look in a certain way and a whole new world can be revealed.”

~ Robin Wall Kimmerer, Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses.

And then my camera died after 5 years of hard work. I still have a few pictures in the can, though…

Why does this socialism thing sound so much like the New Deal?

    Oh, no! Hope the camera can be repaired.
