Ode to Wintry Mix
Magic, I wish. Miracle, I wish. Modesty, I wish.
Magic clouds dissolve and illuminate, illuminate each of us for our selfhood.
No identity questioned. No criticism for words that soothe, and yet are not yours to speak.
Miracle blazed a path to the planet’s core. Salve exudes.
Modesty rises to swing through hearts and calm those that are misunderstood. Calm stares that are miscalculated.
And magic appears with confidence and illusion. ~~ Sally W. Donatello, 2017
Tip of the Week:
In The New York Time’s section “Lens” James Estrin introduces the reader to photographer Josh Haner’s work. “Photographing Climate Change Refugees, by Drone and Foot” ( 28 December 2016) encapsulates Haner’s dedication to tell the story that few notice: as climate change has redefined the weather, it has also reimagined the land that we inhabit, leaving growing numbers of refugees. The article explains, “Josh Haner has photographed eight stories across five countries this year about the effects of climate change, often employing drones to get unique vantage points. Mr. Haner is a staff photographer and a senior editor for photo technology at The New York Times. He talked with James Estrin about finding new ways to visualize climate change.” Read the full article here. I found Haner’s images informative, persuasive and provocative.
