Calm

Water Horizons

It has been a great while since I've seen the ocean. Usually I don't go more than a couple months without visiting salted water of some sort. I believe I have an inner magnet to the ocean, or at least to big bodies of water. I've never been a big fan of staying in a land locked places for too long, and it kind of itches inside when it's been a while since I've seen a water-sky horizon. My favorite time of day to visit the ocean is definitely at dusk. And depending on where the beach is located you might have the sun coming up from the water or on the opposite side of it. I've had the opportunity...

My Happy Place - Self Portraits

Some of my happiest moments have been when I do photoshoots all by myself. It's more time consuming than having someone else push the camera button for me, but it's a lot more rewarding and liberating.

You will also find that I carry with me a pocket size LED light in case I need to brighten my face. Also, something very important; spare batteries.  The locations of these...

And it all starts from the moment I get up.  On days off, if I don’t feel like getting out of bed right away, I just don’t. I’ll stay there maybe read a book for a few minutes, or just be on my phone. And when I come down to the kitchen and I don't feel like making breakfast, I just don't. And if all I want is to sip my coffee slow I do just that. And if that morning latte was so good that I want another one right after, then I go for it!...

Quarantine Update

Has it been 3 or 5 months? All I know is that it was around St. Patrick's Day when my quarantine began. And unlike these pictures show, I've actually stayed pretty busy between work, music, and landscaping believe it or not! I will be giving you an update on that eventually... I do hope you've been able to relax more than me amidst all the craziness happening in the world right now. I can say that my sleep quality has improved significantly in these past few months, maybe due to the lack of strict structure and routine to my daily life. In any case, I'm learning that even as life moves back to "normal" I shouldn't be so hard on...
