"You shoot a picture with the intent to capture something. I don’t even like that word—‘capture’, with all its brutal negativities. The very instant we capture a memory, the captured gets set free. The moment elapses, time shifts a second and what you had lived while making that photograph, goes away. Like clasping sand tightly and seeing time run through our fingers. A photograph is a bit like a breakup, perhaps. And all we wish for is remembrance of photos past." Raj Lalwani

Will it really? This is a rough week. Eight years ago my mother was in hospice; she passed away on the 28th. I have a birthday this week and I'm feeling very 'what's the point'. My mom was the one who could always lift my spirits.
Twelve years ago I was on my way to Hawaii for a week on the island of Maui.
I recently said that I don't spend a lot of time looking back but there doesn't seem to be much ahead of me.

It's raining this morning and at least it won't be 100° today. I've had a summer cold for two weeks, a result of unmasking. I have now returned to wearing a mask when I go into a store. Masks will be part of our lives for a long time, I believe.
