The Next Day: Nuns and The Estherettes

After posting about Friday’s school tragedy, I had the opportunity to attend a previously scheduled event.

A dear friend was participating in a Christmas show. This was not just any holiday show, but one composed of six women, ages 72 to 88, performing a swim routine.

Most reside in the lovely Carondolet Village, home to retired nuns and lay people. It was my first visit and I was overwhelmed, and soothed, by the warmth and welcome of all the people within.

Also, it must be noted, The Estherettes, put on one heck of a show!

TRAGEDY UPDATE Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

EVEN AS I POSTED this entry a horrific event was unfolding in this country. One, or more, gunmen killed 18 children and a number of adults in an elementary school in Connecticut. My heart is breaking…

***

Defining “delicate” came to me quickly- simply because of the project in which I am currently involved. I am photographing children at a local elementary school, many of whom are offspring of newly immigrated parents. As they navigate culture, economy, future, we are charged with embracing them- after all, it is a delicate balance.

As if in prayer, the squirrel waits, “please make the human go away, so I can begin to eat all the bird seed again…”
