“And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
“You owe me.”
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky.” - Rumi #sky #rumi #beauty #grace #latergram #dayton #ohio #sugarcreek #landscapephotography #blessed #thankful #hope #faith
“Life is your art. An open, aware heart is your camera. A oneness with your world is your film. Your bright eyes and easy smile is your museum.” ― Ansel Adams
To always be grateful for the opportunity to express the heart’s intent through a creative medium - no matter what that medium may be. What’s important is to base that intent in the courage of honesty and in a love for life.
Simple Gifts. In art, love and life. The beautiful execution of a simple concept. To live and create with intent and gratitude.
Set a steady heart against the headwinds and stay true to your course. Battered and bruised, set it on course again, and again. What is true will carry it through.

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.” ― Paulo Coelho
Gratitude for what has gone by; faith in what is to be.
Go forward with a good heart and the way will open up. Sometimes the right path isn’t the easiest or most comfortable but it is worth it. I believe this with all my heart and soul. The ego tempts a defensive posture and pride leads to dead-ends. What is right is fortified not so much in righteousness as it is strengthened through forgiveness - to forgive yourself through the gift of a price that has already been paid.
The picture on the bottom left was drawn by my daughter Emma when she was about three or four years old. Today she turns 14. Despite all my fears and failures I like to think - I believe - that I’m showing her and her sister how to follow what is true within their own hearts and to not be discouraged when misled into the traps of pain that is the untruth of blame, desire and ego. And it’s going to happen. They just need to know there will always be a way out through love and forgiveness.
Arise and let love reach to the other side. There is so much more. O.E.W.
The gift of a single day. Hold on to hope. April 7 2013 in Prosper, Texas.
