Yield (continued)

Weaving sunshine attractions on soundless sleep erosion. Cradling the shadows and splitting the shields… a shift in slow motion. So hungry for where Why won’t yield.

Hiding from Hallmark

Every day is love day… This self -portrait series is called “Hiding from Hallmark.” Valentine’s Day…. For me, the culture of consumerism that takes over on Valentine’s Day- a day set aside to celebrate love with “things,”really makes no sense to me.  Love has no foundation in things. Appreciation and gratitude doesn’t come in the form of a $6 paper card or a box of candy. These thoughts were circling around in my mind several days ago—and converged with an […]

The water becomes sky

Eyes open Eyes closed The water becomes sky Not a place to fall but a place to fly in the warm stars of the night sky.

Ring of Fire Guitar Inspiration

These photos were inspired by a new self-portrait community I have been lucky enough to be a part of, called “Ring of Fire.”  I am still pinching myself that I was asked to join these incredible artists, and that I get to actively communicate with them–sharing ideas and inspirations.  These amazing souls have already brought me far outside of my shell, and I am so grateful for that!  We haven’t officially started our Instagram loop yet, but it is coming […]
