Take my hand and pull me out into the wild,
Your red hair and crazy smile, always looking like a child!
We’ll dance alone on the grass in our bare feet,
You made me feel at home since I first saw you smile.
We’ll dance the clouds of life away and make it sweet,
You and I barefoot and wild! Being with you is such a treat.
You twirl me around and tickle my feet, pick me up upon a swing.
The spring is here, it’s in your eyes, cold and winter soon take fleet.
Dancing on green hillsides, all we can do is sing.
You pick me flowers to put in my hair and my heart takes wing!
Four blue eyes as blue as our sky oblivious to clouds.
I’m so glad we’re here. With you my winter is Spring!

My husband’s great grandmother, Corinne Condon, was a champion swimmer and named Omaha’s mermaid by the local newspapers.
Corinne Condon, c. 1923-4.
The hand-tinted photo above is of Corinne between the ages of 12 and 14. She began swimming only a few years earlier at the age of 10, and trained in the pool at the hospital her father owned (Nicholas Senn Hospital.) When this photo was taken, she was already a champion swimmer, and the below article documents her success:
I love the formality of this photo. Quite different from her candid photo in the park! I also love her peplum swimsuit! Perhaps one of these days I’ll discuss the evolution of swimwear…
Such great family history!

In front of the laundromat this morning. Photo taken on my way to the bus stop. A few minutes later, as I was waiting for the bus, I watched someone carry the legs away down the sidewalk.

A friend saw my posting on FB and told me about your site.
That really did turn out great!
Angel statues in the Latin Garden
Why do I like this picture?
The reason this particular picture stands out to me is because of the expression of the, “complete,” angel’s face. Another thing that appeals to me is the reality of it all. Everyone does lose their head every once in a while. I was able to capture this phrase within a picture, which is probably the main reason that I like it so much. The angel missing his head also demonstrates that this can even happen to the best of us. In other words, even angels can get a little overwhelmed.

I suffer from recurrent depressive episodes that can last from a few days to a few years, as well as hypomania. I find photography to be helpful during those times. I took this for the BrokenLightCollective.com gallery for people affected by mental illness.
I took this photo on my walk home from my psychiatrists office. I was disappointed with the outcome of the appointment. I wanted to go down on a med and just ended up going up on another. I wanted her to be excited about a plan I have for the future, but she was not. It seems my “good” days can only be attributed to hypomania and my “ideas” cannot be trusted. As I walked back, I felt tightly bound by my mental illness like a straightjacket, and my thoughts were everywhere, so despite the cold weather I took off my shoes and walked on the beautiful fall leaves. I wanted to feel unbound, and grounded to the earth. To the moment. To reality. But it only left me questioning what reality really is.
Best wishes to you and beautiful Fall photo!
