How is this the same sky?
Clouds on fire next to a sky clearer than the sea.
Can't get over last night's sunset and the grand yet minute feeling I am small in a big, big universe.
I am beloved.
quick break from black & white challenge - but my heart has been hurting so much this week. Seeing the world all around suffering constantly. Seeing friends who I care about greatly hurting, constantly thinking about my mom & how I can help her receive a proper diagnosis on whats going on so she doesn’t have to continue living in pain, seeing friends stop talking to you leaving you wandering what you did & if they had just been honest - how you could have resolved it. Everything happening with the closing of Moody & bringing up old memories, being honest about your faith & where you currently are in a way “coming out” about it that led to heads turning but also seeing friends who felt the same as you - sitting & reflecting. A friend fighting for his life suddenly & all you can do is pray & check social media every hour to see if there’s an update on his condition, remembering this happening to another friend months prior- doing the same thing.
I keep forgetting Thanksgiving is next week, kicking off the holiday season. & for someone like me who loves the holidays? I feel completely numb towards them this year, & in all honesty - I’m already ready for them to be over.
But I look at this picture I took during one of my summer evening walks with Lacey this past summer & I’m reminded of h o p e - even in the darkest times, there is still always hope, always joy, always something to be thankful for. A light at the end of every tunnel. A light of hope 🌻
h o p e - there is always hope
Fall is fading away,
As I walked to my 2:30 rough draft conference for my 20 page paper, 5 pages short... I noticed the blandness that had begun to overtake the red trees of campus. The same trees, the prior week were, in their peak cardinal state and flooded my feed with captions exclaiming the beauty of the vivid red.
Being early, I sat on a bench beside the FAC. Through the giant windows I could see inside, the current artwork it's displayed deep oranges, warm blues and aswwu bike yellows enclosed by distinct, strong lines that emphasized the vibrant contrast of the colors in the portrait of a man.
And then, there's these stains, leftover shadows of leaves that fell.
I think they're beautiful.
and their blurriness, to me, points out a distinct truth. Our senses may be bewildered, overloaded and enticed by vivid color, boombing noise and the loud smack of a good high five; but they are not excercised, calibrated or refined.
Trees rustled by the whistling of the wind, muddied negatives of raked up leaves and a soft cool breeze biting at the warmth of skin... those things, the little things, are what turn up the corners of my grin.
Don't get me wrong, I think the trees are beautiful and bright, but I try to recognise the distraction they can be.
When the full moon is out, it's a lot harder to see the twinkling in a stars shine.

Two years ago today, a windstorm blew through the #InlandNorthwest . Danny's horse water froze over, with no electricity for the heaters. Debra Jackson at STCU helped create a break-even "Get-it-fixed" loan that was made available the very next day. Danny got the generator he needed, and everyone in the Inland Northwest got to work repairing the damage.

(c) I’m not sure 🙊
Saw this on someone’s insta story and it’s LITERALLY ME. Couldn’t even decide which of these b&w shots to post tonight.
Which one are you? C is perfectly viable.
