This “Mother Mary” greeting card has been sitting on my bedroom dresser for a few months. Recently, I added some Christmas decorations to the dresser and I noticed how the sparkly colorful lights reflected off the greeting card’s glossy face. It’s rather pretty, so of course I had to snap a picture. Here is the result . . . not too shabby. But then, Mother Mary is rarely shabby.

There is an adage which states: “We see only what we want to see.” Scanning through images captured this past month, I am vividly reminded of this statement. I notice how time and again, I’ve attempted to capture the ethereal, as if to show the viewer how — even though I often find myself stuck in the mire of daily existence — there exists a world just beyond the veil of illusion where anything is possible . . .
