"Water and Salt"

I took this picture on an Odonata retreat in Maine summer 2016. I was trying to capture the feel of Odonata--at once comfortable, clearly at home (in the kitchen!), and at the same time working, revising, dreaming as sun comes through the windows. 

As I was sifting through the various photos from the weekend, later, what I noticed was the casual placement of the water glass, the salt shaker. Water and salt. Crucial. Like poetry. Like art. What we cannot live without.
