It’s Poetry

Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused or frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score. You’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily some of them kept record of their troubles. You’ll learn from them-if you want to. Just as some day, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful, reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.-J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything of substance but I’m here. Feeling a bit unhinged but here. I’ve been thinking about posting regularly again because I need to pause and acknowledge where I am, what I’m doing, and where I want to be and I can only do that when I write but I’ve got so much else going on that I must really make the time for it. And I will. Soon.

So if you are too tired to speak, sit next to me because I, too, am fluent in silence. -R. Arnold

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.

I’ll be back soon with a full post!


 

 

 

 

 

Baby Fever, Anyone?

My sister in law gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy a few days ago. She asked if I’d be willing to photograph her delivery and although I wasn’t sure I’d be able to hold it together enough to snap anything worthwhile, I reluctantly agreed to do so.

It was an exhilarating experience and I was stoked to realize I actually held it together pretty well and got some amazing shots-perhaps not in a technical way because I am not good at low light photography at all, but definitely in a meaningful way. I look at those images and I still feel elated by this tiny human that is loved so much already.

I wish I could share all the pictures but of course I won’t because I want to maintain their privacy but here is a sneak speak. He seriously is the sweetest thing ever!

Captured Forever

I’m really enjoying spending my days with my daughter and our dogs. A part of me wants to capture every single moment and hang on to it forever but I have to remind myself that I must also be present. So, I only allow myself to shoot a couple of shots each day and then I put my camera away so that I can enjoy this time away from the real world… It’s strange not setting an alarm each night or to dread Mondays but one could get used to this. 😉

Photography is a way of feelings, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.-Aaron Siskind

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,
