The latest renditions of Polaroid Originals (formerly The Impossible Project) films are a continued success in quality improvement. I am especially pleased with the new black and white film, which this photo is an example of. It develops in half the time of their color film and has a pleasing tint to it without post processing. Also very sharp, depending on which Polaroid camera and lens combo you are using. The Trout Lilies have bloomed and along our nightly walk the woods look like a Monet watercolor with dabs of green, brown, and yellow. Soon it will be time for Trillium and the show continues across the summer and into fall when the Asters are the last to bloom. I put up the four bluebird houses yesterday and already this morning a male wren was checking out the real estate in the front yard, sitting on the roof of the house, getting a feel for things. The nesting wrens and bluebirds provide me with much joy across the eight weeks or more they are here.
“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.”
