To photograph warmth, today’s assignment, I should have taken a selfie of me hugging a grandchild or a picture of a nest of baby birds with their mommy or the warm spring New Mexico sun (projected to be a hot New Mexico sun by Sunday) or at least a fireplace. Unfortunately, I came to work early and will be here all day and none of those metaphors for warmth are available—well the sun is but not at its dawn or dusk prettiest. Much as I like and respect my staff I’m not feeling like a photo of several of them holding hands is where this photo challenge wants to go.
Then I looked down at my personal, low-maintenance and reliable source of warmth, “HeatDish.” You see most of the people who work and study here like it cool. I don’t; I always like warm. So here’s a small photo album dedicated to — the personal heater.
