    There is a photo that sits on my desk

    There is a photo
    that sits on my desk: my daughter-in-law, Maggie,
    in profile, who looks down
    in arrested patience
    at the child resting lightly
    but securely
    in the crook of her left arm. The child,
    who will later become
    my beloved thirteen-year old grand-daughter,
    Lucy, looks up at her
    in calm and trusting fascination.

    Snapshot of a snapshot! Neat!
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    keep pouring your imageries to enjoy us
    Love is an un tamed force. When we try to control it, it desrtoys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused

    So delicate and perfect...just as the photo...
    "real
    loneliness
    is not
    necessarily
    limited to
    when
    you are
    alone
    "

    There is nothing more fascinating or involving than a baby-and particularly one's own-whether child or grandchild. A beautifully captured moment!
