Lazy Days

Anxiety has been getting the best of my these past few weeks and I’m lethargic. It’s difficult to explain the feeling of it, the muscle aches, the restlessness, and the constant fear of something suddenly going terribly wrong, when I appear just fine.

I need a break, and for the first time in my life, I’m voluntarily taking the summer off from work and the world.

My time at work is coming to an end and I’m looking forward to spending lazy summer days in the backyard and beach walks with my little one…

“On your worst days do not look in the mirror and call yourself pretty. Call yourself trying, call yourself surviving, call yourself learning how to get through a day, a week, a month or year. Call yourself still learning.”-Meggie Royer

Have a wonderful rest of your day,

Summer in the Light

It’s been a stormy day and some areas in our surrounding cities have gotten so much rain today that schools are closing early because of the threat of flooding. So, I’m sitting in my truck on my lunch break reminiscing on the sunny spring days we had not very long ago. And this photograph came to mind. I’m feeling challenged and I miss the sun…

I don’t do well with gloomy weather when my head isn’t right. I mean, I’m functional but it’s more of a guard I put up to detract attention to how I really feel. I don’t like posting negativity but depression is a part of my life and though I do well managing it, there are periods of time when I feel it lurking in the shadows, waiting for me to let in in. Today has been an especially difficult day for me and I just needed to sit for a moment and remind myself that there are always better days ahead…

This photograph that makes me happy because looking at it brings back the feeling of gratitude that I felt in that moment looking through my camera lense, capturing that March afternoon in our backyard…

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.” – Charles Dickens

I hope it’s dry and sunny wherever you guys are.

Photography

Life has been quite busy for me these past few weeks; my hands have been full with a friend’s wedding, preparing for one of my niece’s fifteenth birthday party, a new furry baby, and photography projects but I will get back to regular posts soon. In the meantime, here is the latest sunrise I captured some mornings ago.

Photography is a way of feeling, 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

Happy Tuesday,

She Loved The Sea

She loved the sea. She liked the sharp salty smell of the air, and the vastness of the horizons bounded only by a vault of azure sky above. It made her feel small, but free as well.―George R.R. Martin

Always There

Love is what carries you, for it is always there, even in the dark, or most in the dark, but shining out at times like gold stitches in a piece of embroidery. ~Wendell Berry

Winter

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape-the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.-Andrew Wyeth

Have a great evening, everyone.
