In honor of the 100th posting on my blog, I decided to do something different. Okay, more different than my usual different.
I want to dedicate this post to beauty and life. We all have a different view of what beauty is. Some people get weak kneed looking at newborn kittens, some of us keel over at the sight of a hybrid rose.
For me, beauty is about the people that we share our lives with. And I mean really share. Not just the "when everything is okay we can talk" kind of people. I mean the kind of folks that will be there holding your hand when you are so down you don't know where the "up" escalator is anymore.
I have been very privileged and honored in the last few years of my life to meet such people. Just when I thought the world was totally self centered and into "me", I've met people who have reached out a hand just to say hello and I am here if you have need. Just reaching out a hand. Talking and sharing. No judgments, no "you should have's." I have had my soul touched in the deepest way, which defies words of explanation. So I won't. You all know. The journey I am on seems not only be one with a camera, but of restoring faith in life.
How can you get more beautiful than that? For these people in my life, I want to thank you. And I want to pass along a little of beauty for all of you to enjoy. My way of saying "I am here when you need."
