Small moments in time.
We experience many such moments each and every day.
I try to capture these through my words and my pictures. Sometimes it works. And those moments are caught. Their meaning, their essence, and their grace shines through radiantly and perfectly.
While away for Christmas with my family, I saw and I felt and I experienced, so many of these small and wondrous moments.
Here are my pictures of those moments. I hope that they convey the joy, the warmth, the love, the beauty, and the magic of how I am feeling this holiday season.
It isn’t necessarily the grand events or big moments that are the most memorable…
Instead, sometimes it is the small moments in time, that warm our hearts and bring us peace.
This year my gifts do not come from a store. No, they are something much better and more valuable and precious than anything that can be bought.
My gifts are beautiful and real and simple.
As I sit here and write about these gifts, I feel my heart opening and expanding. I feel on the verge of something. Something miraculous and wonderful. New beginnings, new paths, new journeys.
And the gifts keep coming.
They are sometimes unexpected. Sweet surprises that fill me with deep gratitude. I am embracing each and every one of them. I am wide open to receiving. And to giving with my whole being in return.
The greatest gift of all I have received, is the gift of today. It is a day full of possibilities. Overflowing with hopes and dreams and promises.
May this holiday season bring you these same gifts and so much more. From my heart to yours.
As a photographer I am sometimes challenged in winter. As a person, with its short days and long nights, winter can be challenging to the spirit as well. The colors around me are limited…
However it is the splashes of color that catch my eye and give joy to my heart. That make the winter a bit less challenging…as a photographer and as a person. In the depth of winter, amidst the endless white, it is the color that makes us pause…gives us pleasure and reminds us that life is not just white or black or gray
And the cold stark landscape is forgotten for awhile.
I go in search for the color of winter.
In the woods…
In the snow…
In the ice…
In the sky…
And in the middle of nowhere…
May your holidays be colorful and bright!
