shedding some light

tree, fog and sunlight

Recently, I took a long pause from doing any art or photography. I packed away all my art materials and left my camera sitting cold on the bare art table.

I could never be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
― Eleanor Roosevelt

looking though lace curtains

I've been trying to look at what I can do and not what I can't do. With no drawing since Feb 19th, I finally picked up a pen and drew a simple sketch on March 6th. It was a slow start but I've returned to my art and photography. They are my tools: my compass and my backstaff.

I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.

And each new day brings choices and opportunities. Sometimes they are smaller and harder to see, but they are there.

Wonderful light - love that high key first image. Great quotes too - and glad you've found time to create once more.

All are beautiful, but that first one really has so much feeling to it! Glad you picked up your camera again!

These are wonderful shots. I'm intrigued by the one through the lace curtains. The quotes are perfect for these shots.

GLORIOUS images, Juana. And the quote pair perfectly... Just now surfacing after 2 weeks+ I've been down with flu & migraines--slowly mending. Fist chance I've had to post and visit friends. So great to catch up with you. :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))
