My name is Laurie, but I am not a stripper. I am a first time visitor to your blog and I love it.

Lauren, Thanks, hope you do come around again.

EPSPSYD: "Love how the themes of showing and watching are woven through the post."

and gender, sex and power. I will say that these posts practically write themselves. Most of the credit belongs to the ucs.

So glad you are posting these...also thinking that taking (or collecting) pictures borders on voyeurism at times. When one feels awkward, or lonely, or at loose ends, having a camera gives one something to do, to focus on. The nine hundredth gull curves in a strange and beautiful arc. The old man walking six greyhounds rescued against the sunset.

Of course you kids knew what you were looking to see, but there's a kind of hovering hunger for something unknown, wanting something visible to jolt one back to life or the earth or lighten a black mood. Or going out thinking "If I have the wit to keep my eyes open, I will see something of GOd's hand at work around me." Either that or the dreams of little boys fulfilled in a micro-bikini!

I'm still a bit like the Elephant's Child, and 'satiably curious about why creatures behave so strangely. And constantly berated by my family for it...
