I found a birch sapling today, hallelujah. My first birch buds since moving down here. I’ve seen yellow, black, white, gray, they’re all here, but not in the abundance they are in Vermont.
I saw something behind it I wanted to focus on, but I had set the camera’s focus on “manual”, and then forgotten I’d done so. So the first shot out of the barn was blurry.
I liked how it looked, and started fiddling with the lens, twisting it bit by bit to see what I would find.
This is where fairies come from: the in-between spaces.
see her rippling?
ghosties dance even as the next layer of reality resolves itself...
...into leaf litter against a boulder, only faintly smudged with the idea of birch buds.
I’m enjoying these in-between states. It seems to me there’s a lot to learn in these spaces.
Even something out of focus can be beautiful.
