three by three x two

when someone feels a gentle pull
to photograph . to write . to create
simple ordinary objects are seen differently

words signal emotions

a drop of paint musters a new beginning

those of you reading this

wield a camera as an artists brush

the 3 x 3 collages below are made with
bits and pieces of ordinary seen differently
[with special messages on the back]
