Too Much.

There is always so much to do. Things to be done because you have to, and things to be done because you want to. But at a certain point, the body just refuses and decides instead to be still. It is a gentle reminder to slow down when life is too busy to be enjoyable. Stop planning things for awhile and just see what life has planned for you.

Some days...

are just better than others and it feels okay to just be. And it feels less about the number of days until something else and more about today.

One thing leads to another

The countdown began and quickly ignited another projct- who knew it could be so fascinating to search for creative number usage? I am excited now to start creating my own number art, but need to get a new battery for my camera before I will be able to capture it. Further proof that the countdown isn't such a bad thing after all. :)

88 Days.

Originally uploaded by sunnycbb.

The countdown is on. At first, I thought it was probably a bad sign that I was already counting down the number of work days until the end of the year. But really, don't we all need a little something to look forward to? A little something to keep us going with the days get long? And so it is…88 days until the end of the year (and what will hopefully be a big enough bonus to buy myself a little freedom).

Take a risk.

It has been more than a month since my last post. After the first couple of days, I was certain I would find a time to catch up on everything that was happening. After a week- catch up felt daunting. And after a month, it feels nearly impossible. So many important things have happened that I am worried I won't do it all justice by rambling through it all. So- one thing at a time, one post at a time. Here goes…

On July 7th, I received an e-mail from Andrea Scher:

“I was just thinking that at some point I wanted to mention you and your courageousness in coming to me for a portrait session. I was inspired by your story and our day and thought others might be too.

I could write a little piece and have you approve it.
What do you think?”

While flattered, I also feared how this piece would be received. Putting my image and words out there on a well-visited site with comments open was terrifying. But in a continuing effort to be brave, I let go. And I was rewarded with a community embracing me in their words with a comfort I had never known.

You can see the posting and the comments here:


Sometimes I become so detached from the bigger picture that I forget that other people are out there to help and to encourage and to make us all feel alive. I get wrapped up in my immediate world and forget that there is more out there. More to experience and more to do. There is a reason to take risks…because there really may be a great reward on the other side just waiting for you to arrive.
