Naturally Leslie was one of the first people I found in the blogging world when I started these journals on the Garden. She is thoughtful and matter-of-fact in her statements and genuine in her entries. She seems to touch folks where they live and I've admired her "realness" as an element of her natural beauty.
I'd hoped that she would, one day, allow me to capture a few images of her . About a week ago I got the chance. We created these captures that, to me, portray a genuine humbleness wrapped lightly in regal grace. Truly beautiful.
I've come to value her opinions and appreciate the fact that when she shares her thoughts, it is a true act of giving with my benefit at heart. That's a rarity these days and I have often sought her counsel in the some of the actions of the Project. I've come to not only know her as a friend but to appreciate what real friend truly is.
