Remember that time I was eating breakfast with Lily one second and then laying face down in the dirt the next? Today I am beyond grateful for the kindness of strangers, the love of friends, and the support of family. Kidney stones and ulcers are no fun and I'm just breathing so deep knowing there are some big changes that can no longer be ignored on my horizon. The body always knows and it's time to listen. 💛
"To be awake is to be alive..." - Thoreau // I am not a material person and there are very few 'things' I dream about. But, if I had an extra $25,000 I would buy a first run copy of Walden and have it sit on an empty shelf on an empty bookcase in an empty library and be perfectly content.
My advice to all photographers: Run away from Pinterest. Run from drawing inspiration from others or stealing like an artist. Run hard and fast. The world needs you to tell the truth. YOUR truth. My challenge for you is that you take your finger off the pulse of popular culture (forget likes and features and sitting at the popular table) and put you hand flat, instead, against your own heart. And listen.
I was having such a heavy week and then her, and the water, and that laugh made everything light once again. ✨
