Downy Backlit Feather Perched on Wintry Branch - Poet Emily Dickinson wrote, "Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul..." Sally once gave me a tiny pocket book of Emily D. poems. She also loved the story of how I got this photo. I've only ever sold a few small items on FineArtAmerica. But a few hrs. after Sally died, someone purchased a humongous print of this photo. I gasped when I saw the order, because Sally had just told me how she loved it, and that I should keep up my photo work.The little feather clinging to a wind-whipped branch reminds me of her courageous struggle.
