When I get My Amazing Camera
I’ll ease it lovingly onto my cake platter,
usher the glass dome down, and savor the ensemble
upon my Irish cotton runner in the middle of the dining
room table where I’ll sit in my kitty ears
(which all the kids agree is my best look,)
writing belated letters on fine stationery.
My Amazing Camera and I will flood this house
with twinking rainbows that will richochet outward
and off every beveled mirror from here to the Eiffel Tower.
And beyond, to ballet schools in Estonia! And Moscow! And Tokyo!!
And even further — to verandahs of raucous beer halls in Brisbane & Sydey,
where we’ll wave at all the people smiling by in boats, and they’ll wave at us.
And we’ll know we’ve reached life’s pinnacle!
When I get My Amazing Camera
golden autumn sunsets from childhood wheaten hills
will suddenly rise from the hot Texas blacktop
as my minivan — which is not really a van at all,
but a wooden sailing ship, slices up spray, full wind
full sun, full adventure towards photographic shores
still uncharted — brand new eyes capturing this garden, this deck and the reflex blue of these wonderful walls.
In short, when I get My Amazing Camera
possibly this one, I’ll still pretty-much be me,
but with better pictures. Waaaaaay better pictures.
And won’t it be grand!

Next post I’ll show you how I’m going to pay for My Amazing Camera without having to borrow a dime. Let’s just say it has something to do with this jumble below (photo taken Jan. 12, 2010.) Jumble a direct result of clearing everything out of Kelly’s bedroom for redecorating.)
That hanging quilt behind the jumble? A mystery lies beyond. What could it possibly be? Any ideas?
I’ll show you next post!
But wait — that next post is HERE! Mystery revealed!!!!!
P.S. Kelly snapped the top photo yesterday afternoon. Both photos in this post were taken with my iPhone 3GS, and altho the lighting and color were enhanced a bit on both of them with my PaintPro program, that mommy-tummy blubber in the first pic is 100% totally unretouched mine, all mine!!
As soon as my interview’s up I’ll post to let you know.
I’m going back to bed now. Kelly’s school has an in-service today. No school! No driving! Whoo-hoo!
Oh, speaking of that kid, we had the follow-up for her broken arm yesterday. X-rays look good, both bones are in place to knit well. They put fiberglass over her plaster cast — she’ll be 2 weeks in that. Then, that whole shebang gets replaced with an all-new fiberglass cast she’ll have on for an additonal 3-4 weeks. Oy. She’s in no pain tho, and is in great spirits.
