It is a serious thing // Just to be alive / on this fresh morning / in this broken world.

I know its like asking a magician how he does it, but do you ‘pose’ your flower displays, lay down in the garden, or… … …. Or is your magic ‘extra-verbal’; better when its not spoken.

Haha–no nothing magic and no posing… I just get down in the dirt, that’s where the magic is! 🙂

Many years ago, I was in Bouchard Gardens, Victoria, BC. Photographing one particular grouping of flowers. I’m a little frightened of bees but, until my wife yelled out ‘there are hundreds of bees right next to you’, I was so absorbed I hadn’t even noticed. We were all a little drunk, the
bees and I, by the beauty of the day!!
