Calmness and stillness has reigned around the house throughout the weekend and week and I am embracing it. Working on my photography particularly on the composition of photography. I, now understand that subject matter alone is not enough. Photography is helping and teaching me things that I can apply to my everyday life. When I look at the world through a camera I see the world and reality as it is. I can't change it. In that place I have to find an order in the chaos and finding out what I want to say in a small rectangular space its a challenge. When I am alone photographing observing my surrounding I begin to feel each element that gives life to that space.

About his birthday...

Late last night flipping through the channels very fast because as of lately the TV doesn't soothe me. I stopped on a music channel and Adele was performing Rolling In the Deep. It was the unplugged version and it was filled with soul and beauty. Quickly it hit me...There are so many songs you have missed and I wish you could have listened to each one of them. Music so good that it might have helped saved your soul. So many things have happened because the world just won't stop turning and I miss you so much. Yesterday he would have turned 34 years of age. When I take inventory of all the things that I have done in the last six years of my life I can't help but to feel sorry for him and for my mother. Nothing can be of a greater pain than a mother losing her child regardless of the age.
There is something in the air and I can feel it. My body is settled and ready to embrace cinnamon, cloves and pumpkins. The colors of Terracotta, scarves and boots and I have even missed the commentators sounds during Monday night football. Tomorrow is Savannah's Fashion Night Out my second year attending this fabulous event that screams Fall is here. We are bringing down the pumpkin garlands from the attic and the talk of costumes has begun.
