three years now

“Sometimes you just don’t know the value of a moment until becomes a memory.”

                                                                                                             ~  Dr. Suess  

We knew.

Three years now since the heart beats in the Fisherman’s chest.   In silence, we remember our donor, his family, and value of the memory of those days.

being lucky

I didn’t have the right equipment so I didn’t think I’d get it.

and as I often do . . . at the tenth hour

I read it was safe to use your camera at totality and the harsh light from the sun wouldn’t affect the camera or the lens.

so then I thought

what the heck?  I might as well give it a shot. 

but, my lens wasn’t right . . . and  I didn’t expect much.

as I often do . . . when I don’t think it will work & my expectations are low. . . I am surprised at how things work out.

My father used to say, “the harder I work the luckier I get. “

I feel like that with my camera most of the time.

I study, and study, and study.

and then

BAM!

there it is.

and I feel, Wow! so lucky.

She married our son the Philosopher in the most beautiful wedding Mass where incense rose to the heavens, and the Fisherman said,  “We hit the jackpot with this one.

I took a deep breath to take it all and I knew it was true. There is nothing more a mother could want for her son.  She is perfect for him . . .  us.  

and then we all danced until the cows came home.
