Last week I made the decision to open up and share something personal with you. This blog has encouraged me to see the good in my life, even when I did not want to see it. It is not to be confused as a veil, there are still dark moments that linger longer than I would like to admit. And the intention of this space is not to be a diary, there is a fine line between a confessional outpour and simple honesty. I believe social media and sharing online can be a positive catalyst to generate good energy in the world.

The pictures include some images I made throughout the week. A selection of moments I captured as the week progressed. Carrying my camera with me is not a daily custom, but it is something I desire to make a habit. It cultivates small digital reminders that leave me feeling accomplished.

To wrap up, I’d like to ask you to look at your days honestly, just as I have, and consider a few simple upgrades. It’s not always easy to be a better version of yourself, but taking the analog approach and consciously doing the work will make one hell of a difference just by trying.

Without warning

The engine comes closer

My bones feel it

The weight of it

The sensation approaches all in a moment

Without warning

My mind is distracted

Taken back

Almost 10 years

My body remembers

Without warning

 I am reminded

Every time I undress

My body remembers

Without warning

The car backs up

I break some more

One last look at the stars

Before the questions start

What’s your name

Where do you live

Do you know where you are

Without warning

I’m taken to the sky

In that instant I am numb

The noise of the flights takes me from the pain

I spend weeks away

Without warning

My whole world changed
