The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

A Collection of Memories
When my husband and I first met and began to date
I noticed that in his home there wasn't any "stuff"
around. But after awhile I saw that he had a little
growing pile of movie tickets, matchbooks from restaurants,
playbills from theatres we had gone to etc. It was like an
archeological dig of our relationship in a way. Now over 20
years later I realize that it isn't that he just has piles of
"stuff". These are his memories and souvenirs of all our
years together. And that is so very sweet.

It looks much nicer that way than stuff into some box and put away in a closet somewhere.
