This week I asked you to consider this quotation from 13th C poet and scholar Rumi. 


"Wherever you stand, be the soul of that place."

Because sometimes it's not about the narrative. Sometimes it's not about the moment. Sometimes it is about being somewhere and feeling what it is like to be there, to be HERE, and nowhere and nowhen else in all of space and time - a mysterious and powerful tuning in.

You've come up with gold again, everyone. Thank you so much for submitting. You made choosing both awesome and difficult & I'm deeply grateful.


Every week the FSC features an article with a Curated Photostream that is open to all.  You may only submit one (1) photo and it *must* be a jpeg file and no larger than 20 MB. Please title the file "Title_Camera_Film_YourName.jpg" so that we may properly credit you if your photo is selected. Remember to check our Submit page to see all currently open photostreams. 

My next curation is February 26. For this piece, I am asking you to ponder conflict. I would like to think about the experience of conflict, of being conflicted or embattled. Thank you in advance. You may submit your "Conflict" image here

Next week is our Polaroid Roundup, curated by Abigail Crone and the theme is "Liminal."  Remember that Abigail's streams are for instant film only. You may submit your image here.
