I've always love photographing clothes lines...usually in black and white with elegantly billowing sheets in the wind. Today these cheery plastic clothes pins greeted me and they had a totally different tale to tell.
Clothes pins have no purpose without clothes to hang yet these seemed content to spin in the wind, bright spots of color in a green/grey world. They were happy to just patiently wait until someone needed them again. We human beings, or I should say "human doings", are never content to just spin in the wind...we need a purpose, a function to fulfill. These low days, as I struggle to get back on my feet, I will follow their advise. I'll just spin in the wind and wait until I can perform my function again as a traveler and a pilgrim. It won't be long!
