I had just finished watering one of my indoor plants when I noticed a perfectly round droplet perched on a fallen leaf. I thought it looked beautiful and carried profound meaning, that in as much as water is (re)vitalizing, it was too late for this particular leaf. Yet, even in its lifeless, shriveled and discolored form the leaf still portrayed beauty – at least in my eyes.
I decided to take a casual stroll around my neighborhood this evening to take in the mild temperature and look for something to photograph before another winter storm sets in tomorrow. After overcoming icy, slippery sidewalks, heaps of snow and deep puddles I decided to stop by the intersection of W.Read St. & Park Ave and browse through what the “City Paper” had to say. Unbeknownst to me, it was “The Sex Issue,” how timely huh? Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day (whether you’re with someone or not), and remember the real challenge is to act lovingly and generously every single day, and not just on V-day.
