Dandelion seeds on my sleeve

So intent on what I was photographing (probably dandelions) that as I knelt in the grass I ended up with some dandelion seeds on my sleeve. And I was thankful to notice how the golden sunset light made them shine. I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on myContinue reading “Dandelion seeds on my sleeve”

Dandelion shadows

Kneeling in the grass to get the shot, I looked down and found dandelion shadows on my jeans. I am thankful I was present and aware enough to notice and capture this moment.

Hot plate

My son eating some leftovers he warmed up in the oven for lunch. I found it quite funny that he ate his lunch wearing an oven mitt—my children sure do keep me entertained.

Growing next to the lake

This is from the second of two rolls of expired film given to me.

I developed this roll at home, “scanned” it with my DSLRContinue reading “Growing next to the lake”

My viola

My viola that I’ve had for about 22 years. I am thankful for the joy I feel when playing this instrument. Just looking at it reminds me how helpful it’s been to have the opportunity to play viola. I’m thankful that my small school—the only small school its size in our whole state to haveContinue reading “My viola”

Darkness and light

Both the darkness and light exist at the same time. It’s ok to recognize both—often times, invalidation does not help and can cause harm. Both the darkness and light exist at the same time.

Kansas Flint Hills + dirty car windows

Just a quick shot I took out my window as my husband was driving 75+ miles per hour down the Kansas Turnpike through the Flint Hills (my favorite part of the 8 hour drive) a few months ago. Taking photos while riding in the car is quite an interesting practice—you never know what you’ll getContinue reading “Kansas Flint Hills + dirty car windows”
