The Long Way Home


The Long Winter

It feels as if this year has gone on forever and it’s only March. February is one awful dream. Which surprises me because I didn’t feel disconnected as I tried (try) to adjust to daily life right after my mother’s death. If anything, I felt so much, I thought my heart would burst. Now I’m exhausted. I am trying to catch up with emails and phone calls. I am trying to get through a book that I’ve read for the past month. The point is, I am trying. On Sunday, I went over my friend Jody’s house to take some photos. I wasn’t in the mood to do self portraits, but Jody made a great model. Once I’m behind the camera, I become lost in that moment. It calms my nerves, keeps my brain from racing and the sadness quiet. It keeps me going.

thank you – I was nervous about how those would turn out, but the light really makes them (and the model!).
