These Moments Monday – Celebrating YOU

in the face of worry
NOW YOU Workshops week 3: reflections.
hello everyday life.
i’m not sure why i dragged this dirty mirror outside. maybe it was the hint of sunshine? i miss my son.
our cat fostah spent his first night out, alone in the cold rain last night and didn’t come home for 12 hours. i thought he was dead. we live on 20 acres with plenty of fox and fisher cats and coyotes to stalk kitties who can’t defend themselves. i spent the better part of my morning in tears wondering how i’d explain this all to river who is 2000 miles away.
did i mention i miss my son? 20 more days until he’s home. i haven’t seen his face in 44 days.
there’s something about a control freak learning to let go, knowing there’s no way to reign in chaos, when it comes it comes. mostly i want to pretend life is all rosy when in fact it’s kinda heavy with loss. and then the cat came back. but not everyone does. and his absence triggered my fear of not being able to say goodbye.
and also? i kinda have a love/hate relationship with this garden. that’s my dirty little secret.

some days, the light and your hair and the camera angle just all come together for a moment. in practicing self-portraiture, I’ve found more and more of those moments popping up – it’s a delightful thing, to practice & get better at something.

Oh, it took SO long until I finally got these photos. It’s such a problem when we take Kim’s camera instead of mine: I don’t know when I will ever get them! So – this time it took 3 weeks… Well, I already had some of them (but it wasn’t even the half of this shoot) and I also uploaded four, e.g. the latest jump shot.
