Lake Julian (NC) beauty ~


Sailing on Lake Julian!



It has been an honor and a joy to completely give up social media for the past couple of months. Someone described to me what I was doing as some sort of fast….I agree.
This will be a rare appearances as I have found so much more in my life right in front if me than what is on the screen. Real people faces, voices, concerns, hugs….and yes the struggles. It’s all there and it’s all real.
There’s that part of me that can’t help sharing what my eye and camera see so here it is. May you find your peace and joy that awaits you today. Xo

From Mud to Lotus…

It is becoming more “clear” to me of what my eyes truly see….

While laying in bed last night, not being able to see because of an optical migraine, I chose instead of worry, to talk to God.

He showed me that my biggest downfall was indeed my eyesight. For the things I choose to look at are the very things that compare me with others, a sense of not being good enough. Not the right clothes, the right …everything. Even peoples facial reactions…

Sometimes I do art. Mainly portraits. People always say that the “eyes” in my pictures are very expressive. Now I know why…

Although my eyes do look for beauty, that seems to be the only thing I can see. Although that can be taken as a good thing, it is also a weakness, because for most of my life, I’ve expected the same out of myself. Perfection.

I’ve been afraid to look at the whole me. Seemingly imperfections and all…which are now being revealed to me as beautiful too.

Who of us are not completely human. Weaknesses, strengths. It’s what makes us need each other. It’s what gives us a heart. A true loving heart.

Here is a poem I shared with some ladies yesterday.
Called…”See Paris First”….I hope you enjoy.

Much love,
