I can remember a time when I was told that capturing beauty is impossible.  I don’t remember who said it, why, or when, but I remember those words.  You don’t forget something like that.

I think my feelings this week can be traced back to a few different moments, situations, and memories… near and far. But I’m working on leaving those in the past.  I’m really trying to focus on the here and now.  Everything happens for a reason.  Every heartbreak, disappointment, and failure has meaning.  It seemed like yesterday was the mother of all bad days.  But you know what?  Today is February 28th, 2013-  a day ahead from yesterday.  I made it.  Actually, I didn’t just make it… I made it with flying colors.  Sure, yesterday was difficult, but it was a blessing. Yesterday, I realized how truly supported and loved I am by so many.  Many of those people, I’ve never even met.  And well, that’s a pretty amazing feeling.  I just want to take this moment to thank every single one of you that have shown me nothing but kindness and love yesterday.  I’m hoping and wishing and praying that my Facebook page will be up and running in no time.

In this world, there’s always going to be someone to bring you down.  That’s why it is quite helpful to have a whole team of people to hold you up.  The truth is, we live in a beautiful world.  It’s not always easy to see it, but we do.  You know what I do to remind myself?  I always look to the sky.  The sky, to me, is always beautiful.  It’s promising.  If I can hold a piece of heaven in my eyes, maybe I can hold it in my heart as well.  So maybe that person, whoever it was, was right;  Maybe I cannot capture beauty… but chasing it sure is fun.

These shots were taken last Summer with my “crappy camera” whenever my heart was heavy and my thoughts were deep.  I knew they’d come in handy.

    I think you capture beauty in all your photos! The pictures you’ve taken for us have between nothing short of beautiful. Glad you got through such a crappy day. Hope you don’t have to deal with that you’re of B.S. again. And not only do you capture beauty in your photos but you radiate it from outside and inside!
