it's been an odd week.
some bizarre correspondence has wandered in
one in particular which accused me of having jumped ship and joined what the writer saw as 'the opposition'
an unfounded accusation
as it happened
happily there's been some nice stuff too
i'm mystified by the battle that seems to be raging
over ownership of philosophies
i didn't know that they could be 'owned'
the current fashion for 'slow', for example
seems to have a few people fired up
there are times that i don't want to be slow at all.
i like to walk, but i also like to drive
and let's be honest, if the conditions are appropriate
i like to drive fast.
what i think is really important is paying attention
making the most of the moment
being mindful, and doing things thoroughly to the best of my ability
whether i am walking
or stitching with care and attention into a piece of cloth
or bundling a cloth around a pocketful of windfalls
today i visited the Light Square Gallery
and snapped the image above *
photography is all about capturing the moment
not slow at all
unless you're tracking stars
like Ed Douglas
i also went to see Candid Camera
at the Art Gallery of South Australia
tis a remarkable exhibition
images of people doing people things
i scribbled a few notes
