Of a Saturday

Random thought of the day: smoked salmon on a crisp cracker, it occurred to me as I nibbled, is fish bacon.

I have figured out how I want the next project to look–I’ve just never done it before. Wish me luck, and silk is froggable should I need to start over.

And with thanks to Lene for the heads up:

Someone who tried something she’d never done before, on a grand scale. Sonia Soberats lost both her children to cancer in a short time while losing her sight to glaucoma. As Norman Cousins once wrote in great wisdom, the only way to cope with a major, life-upending illness is to do something creative.

She went completely blind–and then she took up photography. Amazing work. She dances with the light that she and only she can only picture.

Humbling and stunning work. Thanks for the introduction… and the giggle. I can’t wait to tell the Knight about fish bacon.

WOW — sometimes as an artist I feel blind — thanks for sharing the power to see of someone who is physically blind but more clearly sees

(and I’ll have a double helping of fish bacon please!)

The best I can do today is to agree with Bev. Including the fish bacon.

Can’t wait to see what you’re “seeing” when this project comes to fruition.

Stunning. Not the fish bacon, I’ve actually had the occasional LLT (lox, lettuce and tomato), but the photos and, of course, the story. those images are hauntingly beautiful.
