Seen and unseen
"...My mind’s eye opens before
my body is ready..."
From "Adding It Up" by Philip Booth
My last two trips took me to places where you'd be sharing in some of the oxidative delights I saw, had I chosen to pack a camera.
Hot Springs, Arkansas, poised damply on a haunch of the Zigzag Mountains; New Orleans, Louisiana, pentimento'd on the alluvial exhalation of the Mississippi River.
But some things are for the seeing, not the catching -- and I knew a camera in hand would pull my attention away from other demands.
Home, at last, trying to shake a nasty respiratory virus, looking forward to those next things seen and unseen.
Thanks for coming back by.
