Photo Friday, No. 59

August 24th, 2007 (12:27 am)

This week's Photo Friday theme: Unfinished.

A friend was cross-stitching something in Steve R's hospital room during that last month before he died in 1992. It seemed to soothe her, so later, I began to learn how and thought I'd cross-stitch this simple piece for his parents. They had a white cat named George, and this reminded me of him and their farmhouse in Minnesota. I began it in 1996, intending to give it to them for Christmas. I could never finish it, and eventually I figured out why and wrote a poem about it. The poem and the unfinished cross-stitch are framed together and hang in my house.

Every week the Photo Friday site provides a theme and a list of links to photographers from around the world who've submitted a photo for that theme. I don't count myself among the "real" photographers. I just enjoy coming up with something, either new or from my old photos, to match the theme.

For those of you who visit here via my link on the Photo Friday site, thank you for letting me see your world through your lenses.
