Visuals have always held a huge meaning in my life. There are times when I cannot put words to an inspiration, emotion or realization. Photography has helped me express those deep sentiments. I carry my camera with me as often as I remember, to capture the messages of my heart. My wish is that they may touch a sweet place in your heart too.
When doubt creeps in, I grab it before it has a chance to make me scared. I support my outer world experience in a way that exemplifies faith in something far greater than myself.
“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”

“At the beach life is different. Day moves not from hour to hour, but leaps from mood to moment. We go with the currents, plan around the tides and follow the sun.”

Learning to ride a tandem bike was a wild and intimidating dream for my husband and me. We decided to go for it, trained hard, and now it is one of our favorite pastimes. Celebrate your courage. Champion that adventurous spirit in you that longs to let go of the restrictions of fear.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
– Anaïs Nin
On my walk, this gate appeared with young, hopeful grass all around it. Just a week ago, this gate looked so gloomy surrounded by brown grass and gray skies. Now a week later it’s a scene to behold. Give yourself some time that’s all yours, and watch what happens in just a week.
