About this photo: “I took this photo of a succulent from my garden, about a year ago, and some people may recognize it as the gravatar image I used for a while. I see the image as a reflection of myself ~ many segments of a whole, pieces joined but separate and spiraling. There are points at the end of each petal, which look sharp, but are actually soft to touch. I see beauty in its uniqueness and complexity.“
