Light breaks through

I was kvetching because my camera broke and oh I need one, should I bite the bullet and buy a replacement? On the credit card? Or settle for something tinier, something cheap?

My friend was listening to my flurry of options and questions. A camera guy, he understood.

The next morning I woke up and my husband gently let me know that our friends had given us their camera. A Canon G-10, the equivalent of my camera but the improved version.

The generosity that sweeps through my life and ties it together overwhelms me. I see the most astonishing acts of kindness everyday. Light is everywhere and every day I want to capture it. On my camera, in my heart, palms open and giving back.
