Sunday evening











Book launch party for my friend Leora.

Each day of my weekend contained an expression of love from a community toward one of its members. One planned, one spontaneous; equally heartfelt.

I live in a city. My life is at times isolated. I suspect part of me is just fine with that, or I’d be elsewhere. Wouldn’t I? Other times, the world I exist in is disconcertingly small. I experience loneliness and a craving for anonymity in equal measure. Twice this weekend I was in a circumstance in which the smallness of this city was juxtaposed against its vastness. Ultimately I’m left with the reminder that we're all in it together.

I am often caught in that same feeling of longing for anonymity while lonely. I haven;t been able to find a way out of that...
I love your photos today.

i often feel the same way here, that pull between the anonymity and the community. and i guess it's a gift that we have the choices we have?

Jess: I think it's a really hard balance, and my struggle with it waxes and wanes. Thanks about the photos.

Noreen: thank you.

Emily: a gift, indeed.

Our city feels so in between that I often wish we were either in a city proper or on that farm I want so bad.

Lovely post. I have felt the same things.
