The Reason Why


"It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive.  There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them."  ~George Eliot


I chase the light all morning, longing for the perfect shadow, the glimmer of light on a petal, the glint of sunshine on the curve of a porcelain cup.


I've come to learn that I write and I photograph for the same reason.  It all stems from the same impulse, the same need.  


There is beauty over there, just there.  There is goodness.  There is light that I can nearly touch.  I must try.  I must.

  1. Your tulip images are wonderful. The last one speaks to me in particular, soft yet quite powerful. As do your words.

    1. Thank you so much! I am finding myself drawn to tulips more than ever this year after a very long, cold, and difficult winter. They seem to me to be telling me to hold on just a little longer. :)

  4. Beautiful! I need to chase the light more and more. Some days I look out the window and the light says come out and play with your camera. Yes, the light is magical.
