the Promise of Your Vision

C - Rakesh flies over White Sands -signedI feel now is the time for a short but sweet ode to my delightful, precious & compassionate first-born grandSonso like your father, my 1st born son; beautiful, intelligent & honorable.

And it goes without saying -but I will- very much your own person, that which I’ve watched you grow into and I’m excited to see who you shall ultimately become.

Your journey ahead is sensational!  Full of contrast and rewards, heart-pounding moments, decisions and well, more decisions.  But oh what fun you will have 😆 💗 and remember to believe that something wonderful is always about to happen.  So, will you be present for that?

Like thousands upon thousands globally, you and your graduating class became a part of history before even really stepping foot outside your door!  You pulled a first-ever, virtual, high school graduation this year.

From here on out, 2020 will be remembered as the year the planet stood still, from sea to shinning sea, desert into valley, mountain range to mountain range 🧭 N E W S.   You of course get the idea!

Now go out there (safely & cautiously, virally speaking) and don’t try to tame or change the world around you.  Ponder this for a few; let the full of wonder life, bring itself to you -because it will- and then dive in heart first.  Now you can invite your mind along for the ride!

I am there for yOu, always.  Your loving family is here for you always in all ways ♥️

I found that “speed” was the perfect description for this chilled out (or rather sun-basking) Honu 🌞

Well, it’s been long overdue, the addition of a postcard to this blog.  I had said quite some time ago that I’d toss one in every now and again so, here’s the first.  Also it offers [me] a break in the biography I’ve been working on for quite some time.

I created this postcard and all the rest that you’ll come to know here, photograph and all.  I hope you like them as much as I do 🤍

And I’ve kinda been on a kick of sorts lately as well, where I add meaningful (to me) sayings to some of my pictures I’ve taken over the years.  Sometimes it’s difficult to really nail down who said what.

This one below has credit going to E.E. Cummings, 20th Century American Poet … minus the surfboard but then again, one never knows every detail!

Either way, you’ll see I’ve given credit to the one I found to have said such a phrase.  In the end I’m certain no one is really going to mind too much.  After all, it’ll either appeal to you or it won’t make any difference one way or another. ☺️ 

I’ll continue to create and co-create with the rest of the world, not seeking fame or fortune, only contentment in my craft & joy in my day to day life experience 💦 Cheers!
