Day 123: Can You See Anything?

A year ago tonight my host sister died in a car accident. Becoming a part of this family over the last month leaves me with nothing to say that's not impossible to say. My host mother is broken.

It is easy to see how people can believe in spirits out here. The way the snow moves over the roofs in the wind sounds like lonely whispers and screams. Watching figures down the road swirl in and out of view leaves you wondering what is in your head and what is outside.

I couldn't stay inside today. My camera proved its value by shooting through a snow storm.

Maybe two people will have any idea what I'm talking about, but this post is best read while listening to Can You See Anything by Veto.

I think these are some of your most beautiful photos yet. Also, I've heard (but have no idea how) that you can post songs on blogs.

Those are phenomenal, Laurel. I'm so glad you have the ability to take such wonderful pictures (both camera and talent).
