New Aquisitions

All I wanted for christmas was cameras, and boy, did I get them. During my trip to Hannibal, Missouri, I picked up a Brownie twin 20 and shot a roll of Plus-x through it. Its another 620 camera that was easily modified to take a 120 spool. It also has a real old-fasioned flash bulb attachment that is so powerful, it will blind anything in the immediate area.  My sister was kind enough to give me a new/used Nikon as well, a f-301/N2000 that is now the Corvette of my collection. It does everything and even has a flash. There's a group of cameras that are waiting in the wings to be purchased, and I just received some unlooked-for christmas cash, Soooo, I'll be picking up those cameras momentarily. Hooray for cameras!  Especially ones that work!

Through the Breaking Ice

Through the breaking ice, we heard;
the laughter of saints,
a rumble of ghosts called to prayer

The breaking of everything,
should in turn
reflect something this beautiful

At the end of the way

At the end of the way
there is a sign

we'll know what it says
when we arrive

Like Powder in the Dawn

Like Powder in the Dawn on the slopes
of forever
the creases of care that you wore in me
are lasting

Like powder in the dawn on the slopes
of forever
my eyes drift up 
and see

In our reflection, truly
we see all that we have been,
might be
would be
could be 
should be
but often
we fail to see
the true essence of ourselves
shining through
