Sunday Focus: Unravel

Photo by Meg Boscov

[Editor’s Note: This ongoing Sunday feature pairs photographs from Meg Boscov with a thought (or two) from the managing editor about focusing on tiny things to find something significant. Click on the picture itself to view at full size.]

 

 

“Poets don’t draw,” writes Jean Cocteau. “They unravel their handwriting and then tie it up again, but differently.” To do, we often first must un-do. What looks like the unravelling end of something might actually be just the beginning.

 

“The human race is a very, very magical race. We have a magic power of witches and wizards. We’re here on this earth to unravel the mystery of this planet. The planet is asking for it.” — Yoko Ono And what is this Sunday’s message? Take up a loose end. Pull it. Unravel the ravel. And begin anew.

Meg Boscov is a photographer who lives and works outside of Philadelphia where she continues to pursue her careers in animal-assisted education and dog training. She can be reached on instagram at megboscov.
