specialness*


stacie, canon digital rebel xti

I am heading across the country for four days to begin a new photo journalism project that is close to my heart and has me spinning with excitement. It's so wild to me that I am coming from a cool sunny place to possible snow. My scarves, hats and mittens will be happy.

I wanted to leave you with this Wisdom Card (by Louise L. Hay) that I chose today:

"I am my own unique self...

Everyone is unique and different. If we are like other people,
then we are not expressing our own specialness."

Thank you all so much for your love and open hearted support in my previous post. I've been moved to tears with each beautiful, unique and special word.

I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed and been inspired by the utterly stunning photos of Stacie. It is no coincidence that you have been commissioned for your next project: you capture an *essence* that is beyond imagery. xx

I love this photo! I think she is looking out the window, considering what lies ahead for her and her little one. It looks like she is looking out the window down a long, windy road, where she can faintly see the dust trail of the coming carriage of motherhood. God bless her, and bless you. Safe and happy travels!

Dear Denise,

I have been reading your blog for over a year now, and though I can't remember if I've ever posted a comment to you, your words have been a comfort and an inspiration in so many ways. Things are very difficult for me at the moment (my engagement is all but lost at this point and I am basically starting my entire life over after 5 years), and I am going through a huge transition in my life as a young artist. I too am a photographer, also an actress, teacher and a novice jewelry experimenter, and I am entering this year doing freelance work for the first time without a corporate safety net.

Needless to say, with all this change happening, I'm scared out of my mind. However, in the midst of all that, I find myself truly inspired not only by your words and your experiences as an artist, but by your description of the love that you and Boho Boy share, because it reminds me that I should never settle for anything less than the kind of connection that you obviously have.

I am SO rambling to a stranger in the middle of the night right now.

For quite awhile now I have had the pleasure of experiencing you and your friends through your blogs, and though I have never met you, I feel your strength as a circle of love, trust, and growth in my own life. When I feel at my lowest, I am reminded by your words that, though I may not feel I have the strength to move through change, to move through fear, I have more than I think I do... and others have felt that way, as well, and I am not alone.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is thank you... for your words, your passion, your sensitivity... your equal ownership of your strengths, talents, fears and weaknesses and your neverending thirst to understand them and learn from them... for reminding me of the kind of woman I truly want to be, the kind of life I truly want to live.

I hope your trip is everything you want it to be, and if you're anywhere near Ohio, let me know. We've got plenty of snow to share with you. :)

P.S. Sending oodles of good energy your way regarding your fertility journey decisions. May you and Boho Boy find peace and strength in each other, in everything you've learned that has brought about these decisions, and in everything that continues to happen as this dream becomes a reality.
