Cats and Dragons
Today was a very long day in the studio. The kind of day when the work isn't difficult, but plentiful. Hours of the nuts and bolts and physical labor that make the pictures in my head become objects I can hold.
But evening came, just as always. Orion and I walked through our neighborhood to the wash, which is wild with rabbits, coyotes and roadrunners. Oh my.
There were little black birds on the wires, like notes on a staff and the sky was filled with cats and dragons and other strange creatures. The sun's light suddenly turned Orion's hair to gold. I took a photo of him, for him.
For later, so that he can see the street as it was when he was a little boy.
It will be like time travel.
The walk was an excellent idea.
And now, I'm too tired to worry or think or plan. Quiet now, and sleep.
