Thank you, Klaus for the kind remark!

Now from a recent walk around the block!


Asher Kelman: “Roses before Ficus”

What’s fascinating, my friends, is that although all the neighbors’ flowers are free to enjoy, no one ever stops to steal them!

Part of that, perhaps, is we take Nature’s beauty somewhat for granted. Just like not noticing how that rough dare-devil “Tomboy” next door has grown up as a fine and worthy woman!

Also, with 2 friends, one evening, passing a homeless woman, (with a child huddled in a doorway), what they had seen. There were blank faces: they hadn’t noticed!

The camera can be our lantern so we learn to see what’s actually around us!
