I know these photos have been making the rounds on the net, but I can’t help but to post something about it. I have these recurring dreams, sometimes nightmares, of a massive wave of water overtaking my body and carrying me off. One dream, I remember so vividly. After the storm, the waters were still and the the sky was so bright and white. A pelican was frozen in mid flight. I saw every detail of his grey and white plumage and its dark shadowy eyes. It was so beautiful and scary. I think what draws me into these photographs is that same sense of beauty and foreboding and helplessness. As if she knew.
