soft edges

see the hard edged lens on the dog eye

but the soft edge of the dog fur;

see the hard edged right jaw line of the woman

but the soft edges of the hanging earrings;


see the hard edge shinny nose of the pup

but the soft edges of the blades of grass;


see the hard edge of the left nostril

but the soft edge of the eyebrows.


It’s all about texture: liquid, bushy, bony, tunnel-y, or electrified!

the edges-opens us for

Elizabeth Gilbert
 has encouraging words for people who come to writing later in life: “Writing is not like dancing or modeling; it’s not something where — if you missed it by age 19 — you’re finished. It’s never too late. Your writing will only get better as you get older and wiser. If you write something beautiful and important, and the right person somehow discovers it, they will clear room for you on the bookshelves of the world — at any age. At least try.”
