Breathe into me

At night I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine.
Breathe into me.

— Rumi, excerpt of Some Kiss We Want (tr. by Coleman Barks)

  12. David,
    On the cusp of 300 consecutive days… we who love your photos and prose send our strength to you to “keep on!”

    Each picture is amazing but my favorite is the one with the “moonshine” on the water…. it’s (ahem!) inebriating!

    Also, let me include my comments about your rumination about the “homeless” She whom you photographed as she was detecting metal.

    You’re a gifted writer and we are the beneficiaries of your thoughts, quotes and perspectives.

  13. Such illuminating photos…and Rumi’s words such an invitation…and I always say “Each Breath is a Gift” (my usual tag line, I came up with years ago) and that breath Rumi writes of would be very en-robed in light…so much so that when a persons expression of exhale out, an Earth Plated Beacon, gives off a Moon Glow…that shines so bright it would dazzle for all the days and nights throughout eternity… as it dances, dipping and swaying around the stars…
