  3. robert, i am mesmerized by your use of the word strength here, and hopeful for us all. the fragility of life! and yet -

    monica, oh, thank you. that anything stays with anyone is my great gift. i am rather shocked by this shot. one plant, two leaves still, one leaf moving, and the stalk - ? does it even meet the earth? this is as shot, not a manipulation. sometimes when i look at life i can not see that it is possible. and yet it is.
