Admittedly, there is not a lot of artistry here during the past week. We are emerging from migraines, strep throat, and all-around exhaustion. But…most days, I was still shooting something – even though they’re mostly snap-shots. Here’s to a better (and hopefully healthier : ) week to come….
From our visit to the zoo yesterday….
As I was uploading photos this morning, I realized I missed 3 whole days!! It may take me a few extra months to reach 365 days of posts : ). Any way…I’m resolving to return to my commitment this week – I did actually miss it while I was away. I think I’ve been struggling a little with the reality that I can’t come up with something I’m really proud of every day. With a post every day, I don’t always have time to do something exceptional, and rarely even have time to edit at all. Maybe part of the exercise for me is to let go of perfectionism and embrace how I’m learning to see the world in a more beautiful light.
I breathe, I step, I breathe
Lift, push, glide
I move past, move forward, move on
Past choices, past despair, finding truth
While I endure, I smile, and I heal…
in and out
step, and breathe
As I cry, as I bleed, as I sweat,
Through denial, to acceptance, into peace
While I feel, become numb, then forgive
full and pure
step and breathe
I connect, I escape, I am free
Across miles, through seasons, over decades
life and strength,
and I run.
