:: peace & pictures ::
i figured out today what it is i like so much about taking pictures.
pictures are quiet.
it's like i can take a few snapshots of my loud, crazy, sometimes tantrum-filled days and suddenly they condense down into these lovely, quiet little smidges that carry all the good stuff and none of the frustration, resentment, anger, or confusion. no one is asking questions or crying, or if i happen to capture someone crying, they're doing so without any noise. without any argument or injury. the crying becomes both bearable and, often, sweet.
i think i'll be taking a lot more pictures this summer. i need a little more quiet.
