This morning my friend Joanne and I spent a short hour snapping photos and visiting amid the sight and sound of our neighborhood creek.  She is one of those friends with whom I rarely have a superficial conversation.  Today was no exception.

So we snapped photos of the swirling water and dappled light and shared the thoughts and questions and ideas on our minds – or as much of that as we could squeeze into our short time together.  We agreed that our jaunt was unlikely to yield fine art.  Its sole purpose was to give us breathing room outside the busy-ness of our lives.  And it did just that for me.  I could have watched that rolling water and listened to my friend’s quiet wisdom for hours.

Thanks, Joanne.
