self portrait challenge ~ "with someone"

superhero & boho, canon digital rebel xt

Here is this month's first installment of a photo of me "with someone" that is very special to me. Andrea has been an incredible support and comrade on this journey of mine. So here we are, side by side being our very own Superhero's.

She is so full of life and such an inspiration. I have some amazing women in my life that I surround myself with. These women are rich with lessons to teach and are also open to be teachable. Andrea is definitely one of them. Our sharings are deep and introspective with some goofy in between.

One of the many gifts I have learned from our friendship is how to listen and give (or not give) advice. To truly be "with" someone in their pain rather than try to fix it for them. To allow people to be heard, ask questions, nod and just be with them. Most of the time, that is all we need.

And I must say...doesn't her divine necklace look good enough to eat?

Find other special someone's here.

Looks like a day well spent. I so miss my friends living all the way over here in Malaysia...i miss those days of sitting on the grass and just shooting the shit.

You captured the moment really well.
