  2. I love what you've done with the Plath poem, Betsy. You're the Queen of the acrostic, in my book.

  5. Brilliant as always. Loved Sylvia Path's work too. Yes, I have imagined if I was that littel boy in the puddle looking out at me--I would find it scary that there was nothing behind me but sky to fall into.

  19. What I've always wondered is...how can you reflect if you're not flecting in the first place?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Forget the reflection...I don't think the puddle is real!

  41. Wonderful photo indeed. My boy make a a great model. Any chance you would be willing to assign proper photo credit or maybe even ask if it is ok to use it in the first place? I am the original photographer and I must admit i get a bit bummed for photo usage when no permission was asked for.
