colour my heart.
“You meet her at the well.
She is drawing water while singing the songs of creation. She is living by the fountains where the waters of life rise from the depth. She is dancing there for the Creator. And she knows how to tell the ancient stories that are still alive in our blood reminding us where we come from. She is at home at the source of Life….
She is still there. She is you.
Oh St. John’s Wort,
Whisper to me, the secrets of your heart
Shine your sweet sunshine upon my darkend mind
Soothe my nervous endings, and brighten my weary soul

I had planned to do a photoshoot with my mom while she was here visiting me. This wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, but I actually never really know what I have in mind. Creativity is it’s own beast, I must act accordingly.
Jokes are for the serious.
Truth is for the liars.
Silly is for the boring.
I’m reading this book – World Made By Hand by James Howard Kunstler. I love it. I also really like apocalyptic stories, like this one. There is a certain, unnamable quality and romanticism I have about our world as we know it collapsing. These photos were inspired by those thoughts.
Frustrated, overwhelmed, fatigued. Slowing down is the intention, but when and how? I’ve created this suffering myself, and it’s just where I’m at today, it’s not forever. Deep breaths lead to remembering. One foot in front of the other and don’t look back – there is nothing there for me.
Find the extraordinary in the ordinary and you will not be disappointed. This woman is super duper extraordinary, and where we took photos one might say is ordinary, but not today. This old logging road may seem ordinary to those not looking for the extraordinary – but let me tell you, magic can be anywhere you want it to be.
