spriteskeeper asked us to write about mistakes for her spin cycle this week. i've ... made a few ... somewhere along the line ... i'm sure.
but ... honestly ... the lack of sleep is getting to me. and i'm having trouble remembering things. what was my last name again? how many children am i responsible for? what was her temperature last time i checked? when did i give her the last nebulizer? albuterol?? pulmicort???
so i'm posting something that i posted over at my other place ... my picture blog ... for those of you that have been there ... sorry about the repost ... i'm adding a little something at the end ... so not totally the same.
twisted; deformed; misshapen.
... after seeing this picture pop up on my camera and being completely unable to delete it for some unknown reason ... i tucked it away ... and then over the weekend i read a little photography article ... and this idea stuck with me ... there is a fine line between a mistake and beauty ... occasionally errors (movement during the click of a camera button, perhaps?) taken one step further actually lend themselves to the beauty of a photograph ... and maybe that's why this picture needed to be documented. there is a certain quality about it that shows a flurry of activity around my little birthday girl ... but at the same time shows her relishing in the chaos surrounding her. whoa. deep ...
and i think that's really how it is with all mistakes ... of all sorts ... they provide us with some amount of beauty and insight into our life. you just may have to look more closely for it.
now ... i'm off to cuddle a sick little cora ... and hope that i can make her second birthday as wonderful as she is. ohmygoodness. sunday ... she will be two! where did that time go?
