Miep is present. Wherever she goes, whoever she meets. Whatever she does.
She is fully there. In each picture taken, she is present.
She interacts with her subjects and everything she encounters,
She creates images with the innocense of a child, but masters everything she does.
With Miep around there is no doubt. There is no wrong. Things just are right.
She makes them right. Although she left her body, she will never leave me.
She is present in every picture she took. She talks to me through her work.
I see her in nature: in the flowers and in the birds.
With an attitude of gratitude…THANK YOU SO MUCH.. for being around, Miep!
You are timeless …enough…
