Words for you...

180 is something someone told me a long time ago
when I was learning the truth
still learning
when I did not know circles could not hold the night
and gravity could not breath in the sea

it was a sharp thing, a line not a curve in a subject failed 

I am always turning 180 to find myself
and I  look everywhere
and I am not
and I am
with every loss less of myself

I have learned that circles contain everything in fact
every drop of water, every piece of love
even the night with my eyes made in the shape make a beautiful whole

and gravity
I am not sure
I have learned anything
because I can breath in the sea 
under the water I can choose to breath into oblivion
peaceful finding where the holes of my heart - those pieces - have been missing
with that love

and I understand nothing now or then not later.

Art for you...






 I just LOVE these image, lingering with haunting mystery and overwhelmed with beauty.

Floating in pools on a Monday...

It's Monday.  And though we are all "back" to our computers and or job, it is still important to dream. Close your eyes and where else would you be?  Could you be?  Today I dream of simply floating in a pool and staring up ant the sky and trees.  One of the simpler pleasures in life.

Though these pools might not be simple to get to, they are simple in that they are natural and given to us from sweet mother earth.

words for you...

Why does the water lust for the shoreline
a violent soft love
deep & timeless as a universe
I can understand so little
no end
comprehend no beginning
all is beyond my capacity
of all I have learned to learn
only
we go on, each of us,
as fierce as the last and neighboring wave
our passions hold the height of surf
of dreams extend into the risk of our abilities
knowing, unknowing - all of this will diverge into an infinite flatness
part of a scape we cannot see 

do you exist while I am not with you?

This momentum of time, the womb of connectivity
only to be brawn back into the lust of return.

Words for you...

Close your eyes and see the spotted sky 
and know that your breath is not in your
mouth, but in your head, find something
in the knowledge this is possible, know 
this, and know that that which keeps you
afloat can also crush you & your mind's 
breath - but only for a moment. You can
equip yourself, you can not let fear be 
your frequent guest...
with your eyes closed focus on the 
mind breath.

Images for you...

My goodness I am IN LOVE with the work of Amy Finkelstein.  Like melting memories, cities or bodies.... or are they forming?

 "...Photographs now seem as abundant as words, taken in as a grammar or code. My work has become a sort of code, or formal system in my mind: reducing infinite subject-hood to simple planes of matter to be photographed and perceived. I am intrigued by the impulse to comprehend and read this language, and am informed by the context and image body we bring with us to any one photographic object or lens based gesture. Considering all we bring, I tend to eliminate much, reducing the photogenic possibilities down to a blank sheet of drafting film, ink, and a discipline with analog photography. From this place of uncertainty comes some sort of measurable mark. The camera takes it, and we take the image. For my thinking, the process is no longer about specific idea or creative gesture, but about certain distances of form and media yielding to potential."

Warmth for you...

I really love my job.  I get to share moments with people at they are most happiest, most loved, most giving love, most beautiful, most honest, most vulnerable.  This morning I had the privilege to shoot an elopement at City Hall and it was just perfectly lovely.

Anyway, have the most perfect weekend.  I am looking forward to the snow, inside looking out.
Please warm your heart with the most perfect ad in history...

Singer Mara Carlyle, song "Pianni"

Inspiration for you...

"PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO PURSUE THEIR MOST IMPORTANT DREAMS, BECAUSE THEY FEEL THAT THEY DON’T DESERVE THEM, OR THAT THEY’LL BE UNABLE TO ACHIEVE THEM. WE, THEIR HEARTS, BECOME FEARFUL JUST THINKING OF LOVED ONES WHO GO AWAY FOREVER, OR OF MOMENTS THAT COULD OF BEEN GOOD BUT WEREN’T, OR OF TREASURES THAT MIGHT OF BEEN FOUND BUT WERE FOREVER HIDDEN IN THE SANDS. BECAUSE, WHEN THESE THINGS HAPPEN, WE SUFFER TERRIBLY. 
SO, WE, THEIR HEARTS, SPEAK MORE AND MORE SOFTLY. WE NEVER STOP SPEAKING OUT, BUT WE BEGIN TO HOPE THAT OUR WORDS WON’T BE HEARD: WE DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO SUFFER BECAUSE THEY DON’T FOLLOW THEIR HEARTS." PAULO COELHO

Fashion for you


In the meantime an interesting piece on how a little something has been lost for all in today's world of over saturated fashion photography.

Oh hello again...

























via 

It's been oh so long.  I recently looked back at the work I did with LowtideHIGHTIDE and felt I missed myself. As if I was an outsider looking in, or I was not myself.  A teacher once told me about writing, write it for you, if you are interested in what you write have faith others will be.

It seems in order to be inspired sometimes we have to act, we have to find the inspirations - they do not move by our eyes and whiplash us into creativity. We have to sit and think within our thoughts.  The days can pass over us so smoothly, and like a rock to water, we can become soft to it's time and lie there forever until we are a tiny speck of sand. The same particle, but smaller, beaten down by our own choices.

But I choose to reactivate into the world and again sit with my thought.  Here is where visions and beauty are birthed.

Words for you...


“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be a long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.” 
- Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Objects for you...




Question. Is it fo paux for a woman to buy herself a nice ring?  Can't I commit to ME! Just because it's a diamond, doesn't mean I cant have it and love it. Perhaps every woman should go out there and get herself a nice piece of jewelry for herself....

Rings from the beautiful Catbird.

lowtidehightide...


in the darkness I can see your yellow
it is a hope for a new evening

single span.... 
a continuum 
marked by creations 

I try to be reflective of this color
this color into a feeling
think this feeling into a shape
and this shape into words my language gives meaning to...

Everything must be understood.

Colors for you...






































Just because !

Words for you...

“Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure.They’re huge and abstract. And they’re very beautiful.” David Lynch, Catching the Big Fish

tears for you...

Have any of you seen this video?  I sat down about a week ago and watched the whole thing and was so moved by this story...  Jill Brzezinski-Conley learned she had breast cancer a day before her 32nd birthday. She underwent a double mastectomy, and then, at 35, found out she has incurable stage 4 bone cancer.... and this film was made and an experience had.

Watch it.

There is one moment where she has this thought, a challenge of sorts for Victoria's Secret to use a survivor of breast cancer in their magazine.  How amazing and powerful and inspirational would that be to all women?!
