With numb, frozen fingers, I clicked the shutter. The Wyoming sunset washed the landscape with awe-inspired colors only nature could provide, and only an artist can hope to capture. The frosty air, the calmer winds and the last rays of light unite with humanly wielded textures under one radiated sky, and I hold my breath. All too soon the sun drops entirely under the horizon, and darkness wins for another long winter night. 
I cannot explain why everything came together so smoothly that evening. I forced myself to go despite what I was feeling, despite the winds and despite that one week prior, to the day and in a matter of a couple hours, was the anniversary of my mother's sudden passing. I needed to be there in a strange new place, and I needed time to be frozen like the snow I was standing in. But time keeps moving forward regardless of my needs and regardless of my sorrow.

Last night I lost my mom to cancer. A brain tumor discovered just three days before has denied me and my family time. Time I could have used to say how sorry I am for so many things. Pain. I feel so much pain.

I know I haven't posted for a minute, ok awhile, ok a long while! Thanks for hanging in there and not leaving. ☺
This is in the basement of WY's oldest YMCA. 100 yrs young this year. A bat did it's best to make me feel unwelcome. It failed, but I did have to overcome some goosebumps. 👻

Everytime I visit some old town or building I think about how uncomplicated life must have been back then. 
I enjoy the simplicity of that lonely moment.

A conceptual piece I did for summer portfolio review based on memory. How does one remember 10 days of non-stop rodeo??
Super top secret classified results (until they're not) are revealed on Monday. So many things I would do different for this one. Next time!
