Aldo the Elder, aka The Great White, sits outside the studio window. I had the wrong lens but loved the haphazard photo I took–almost like a mysterious book cover. The blue bottle has been in my family since I was a little girl, most likely Swedish in orgin and that bottle has survived so many moves of my family. After one move, my parents looked for weeks trying to find the famous blue bottle, but to no avail. Months later, they found it rolling around, unwrapped, in a drawer.
It is a survivor, that blue bottle, and I took it from my mother's home after she died. Some objects do hold a life in them.
Aldo is a survivor too, outliving his life long mate who went with him to Sanctuary One. Now his final days, weeks or months will be lived out here. I hope he can live with us for a year or more, but he is very old–I try to watch him each day to soak him up.
