“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is a lot going on in our world right now. A lot of change, a lot of stress. But nature has a way of helping, if you let it….and oh man did I need it.

This was taken about 10 minutes from my house on a socially distant outing with my friend Melissa.

At one point, as I hopped river rocks and shimmied across a fallen log to get to this spot, I saw her turn her camera my way. I’m pretty sure she was getting ready to document me falling into the water. Lol Thankfully, I made it across without incident, despite being out of practice. Sorry, people of the internet. No embarrassing photos to share today. Just this pretty golden hour waterfall.

Wishing everyone good health and happiness in these difficult times. ❤

“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details if how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.” -Ernest Hemmingway

Found this hidden gem in CT one rainy day this fall, and had the place almost entirely to myself.  It was so damn peaceful. ❤

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted. Sometimes life just demands your attention, you know? But I found time go shoot this week at a place not far from my house. The clear skies (and early Milky Way rise) were just too tempting! And I’m glad I got out for a bit. It was nice to knock the rust off, so to speak.

Life is about balance and there is so much demanding my attention all of the time, making it difficult to weigh what things are big priorities and what things are little priorities. But to me, photography is a form of self-care and that, my friends, is super important. If we don’t take care of ourselves, how will be able to take care of others? The car needs regular oil changes, amiright?

Plus, this reminds me of a Thomas Kincade painting and I can’t hate on that. Lol

“I realized then that even though I was a tiny speck in an infinite cosmos, a blip on the timeline of eternity, I was not without purpose.” -RJ Anderson

One of the most powerful things you can do for yourself is to rule out who you’re not, so that you can focus on who you are meant to be. In doing so, you find a voice you didn’t know you had, the motivation to work towards your goals and the strength of character to weather any storm.

For me, that has often involved saying yes to opportunity, or following a blooming interest. Sometimes you find you’re not all that passionate about xyz afterall, and that’s ok. You haven’t failed, you’ve learned a lesson, and in doing so you’ve taken one step closer to finding your passion and purpose in life.

And once you discover what path you are meant to walk? The possibilities are endless. Cultivate with that purpose a strong sense of morals and ethics and you will be a significant force for positive change in this world.

The news these days is rough, but it’s important to remember that dark days are when we need to shine our lights the most, to bring some good back into the world. ❤

There is never a wrong time to show kindness, be empathetic, and help others. I encourage all of you to look into your hearts, and think about what you can do to help the world be a brighter, better, safer place. It’s when we come together with love and the mentality that we can make a difference that we start to see positive change in the world.
