Love is All Around..


I decided a long time ago that life is too short to take anything for granted.
People have had many reactions to my ‘obsession’ with photographing life’s moments. I get groans at being dragged from bed before sunrise to await that magical moment when Earth opens her sleepy eyes to greet yet another day. I ignore the pained eye rolls when I insist on hurrying out to watch that same sun make its final descent behind the horizon, giving up daylight’s reign to the mystical night. 


But...who would choose to miss this magnificent moment that has ever truly watched it in awed silence?



The truth is that I don’t take photos as a means of hoarding these memories for myself. They are emblazoned on my soul and rooted in my heart. I take them to share with and inspire others to look around, to see what life gives us with every breath we take, so much of it absolutely freely. 

No regrets,
don’t forget
to see
and be
the miracle
the world 
needs

I had another idea for today’s post but an online friend made a simple statement to me this morning and my focus shifted slightly. Love is, indeed, all around us. Accept it, give it away and it comes back to you; but keep it secreted and it withers. Be safe and well my friends. The now moment matters more than ever before.

  3. One of my absolute joys of driving to work and coming home from work during certain times of the year is that I get to enjoy the beautiful pink and crimson and gold skies of sunsets and sunrises. There is nothing like it...so beautiful!

    Sending love and wishes for good health to you, Cheryl. Have an awesome, relaxing weekend.

  5. I first heard that song in the movie "Love, Actually" and I loved it! Your moments in time are frozen forever in time. That allows us the chance to share in the incredible beauty around us. Please never stop! This place would be sadder if you did.
