life as it happens...

"I would randomly take pictures of nothing in particular. How else could you record life as it happens?"

~ Simon Von Booy

This is it right - this hope - that you could record life as it happens. That maybe all of these photographs add up to something in the end. A glimpse, into a life, as it happens.

I love also this idea from Laurence, that we maybe kindle the life-quality where it was not......

We are transmitters of life

D. H. Laurence

As we live, we are transmitters of life.
And when we fail to transmit life,
life fails to flow through us ...
And if, as we work, we can transmit
life into our work,
life, still more life, rushes into us
to compensate, to be ready
and we ripple with life through the days.

Give, and it shall be given unto you
is still the truth about life ...
It means kindling the life-quality
where it was not,
Even if it's only in the whiteness
of a washed pocket-handkerchief.

Which is maybe just some excuse to post photos of bread and scones and cinnamon buns, all from Cobb's heart isn't in baking lately. And yet, one must eat....
