polaroid































This is me with my dog, Snappy, in the Illinois woods, circa 1965 or so. Probably my dad took the Polaroid, forever capturing for me the coziness of a red knitted hat, the earthy crunch of oak leaves underfoot, and the lovely warmth of dog kisses on a chilly December day.

your posture immediately reminds me of tiny (anglo-saxon public : debbie). in this (i take it) spontaneous image, you look exactly like the heroin. i now realize tiny/debbie must have been drawn from life pose.
or, erm.
were you posing for debbie?
beautiful memory for you, there...

This is the most beautiful photograph I think that I have ever laid eyes on, because it captures the soul of a wonderful and generous heart. Your love of animals shines through in this photo, dear Leslie. You are and always have been, a friend of Saint Francis.
Much Love,
Noelle

i wish i could cradle your sweet face in my loving hands right now...
i wish i could look into your eyes and instill such loyal love as i see you giving so unabashed here, in this moment of youth, trouble free woods and cozy red hats.
