A Holy, Naked Union
My wife and I have tried to create a similar image in our garden a couple of evenings ago, with only a little success. We will definitely be revisiting this theme in order to get the image we are satisfied with for the poetry project. In my opinion the female needs to be as visible as the male rather than just half legs and arms. Of course, since we are in our sixties, the image won’t be about rippling, buff muscles. We definitely fit into the “normal” body types that show all the real signs of growing older. And, we like it that way. I guess we are comfortable with both our bodies at our age as well as our state of mind. And that, is the ultimate goal for everyone, a sense of being at peace with oneself and with one’s significant other.
Today is a cloudy day with a cool north wind blowing which makes it a good day to do something different rather than repeat the same beach walk. A photo walk around the fishing village became our focus with the intent to highlight the village in our posts and e-mails to those back home in Canada.
The poetry is coming along fairly well using this new format of taking photos first with them then becoming the inspiration for the words to follow. I have a sense that this is my best work yet. When the project is done, you will get to be the judge.
