(my cousin's ear)

Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
~ Deuteronomy 6:4 ~

I went to a family reunion this weekend. I took a few pictures, but not many good ones. Some were blurry. I have come to the conclusion that the focus problem is a combination of the autofocus on my camera (variable at best) and my eyesight--the LCD screen is so small that I am going to have to get stronger reading glasses to see it clearly. In the meantime, I will continue to futz with the settings on the camera. Perhaps I need to use a higher aperture setting more often. I might get clearer shots--but less bokeh.

I liked this shot. My cousin's ear is pleasant enough. I just really liked the trees in the background.

Of course, I had to come up with a quote about hearing and this is what kept running through my mind. Do you have any quotes about ears or hearing to share?

My favorite prayer comes to mind:


Open our eyes to see beauty
Open our ears to hear truth
Open our minds to seek wisdom
Open our mouths to speak kindness
Open our hearts to love.
