Para mi familia~For my Family

I'm about to be really honest. I don't usually like to post things that are controversial. I'm not a confrontational person and I don't speak my mind a lot. I feel vulnerable and incredibly afraid to write about something so deeply personal. But we all have our moments, I suppose, where something compels us to... Continue Reading →

A Mighty Place

This place doesn't need us. But we need it. It was the first thing that came into my head when I saw it. There are few places that make you feel as though time has stopped. The nature of a tourist site pretty much makes that impossible. There is noise, there are crowds, people jostling... Continue Reading →

This past Saturday, on 20 June here in the United States, we took time to recognize the wonderful fathers and father figures who are important in our lives by celebrating Father's Day.

Today on St. Patrick's Day I wish you all a happy, festive and wonderful day. Thank you for coming along with me on this... Continue Reading →

A Million Blazing Colors

I searched for inspiration and I came back with nothing.

The beach was cold—the water grey and angry. I brought a blanket and laid it... Continue Reading →

A Thousand Words

When you look at him, what do you see? A god? A human? Something in between? The day was a sunny mid-afternoon in Rome, spent sightseeing and wandering the halls of the Galleria Borghese. I had seen many beautiful things that day—sculptures, ancient crumbling buildings, lovely frescoes— all testaments to human creativity and vision, glimpses... Continue Reading →
