I remember working, really working eleven and twelve hour days. You would "punch" out and then head into your life or day. If you were fortunate you were heading to those moments you worked so hard to have, but often you went straight into the daily needs and responsibilities. Eager for the so called weekend or day off to catch up with loved ones, do...

For over twenty years I have used a camera to try and capture moments, places, scenes and perspectives that felt worth capturing. A battle that often seemed futile but a habit impossible to break. While looking over this quirky desire to capture a moment, it's easy to feel it is futile. Yet there are those moments.

Those moments sometimes capture what you want, how...

Once in the dark of night,
Inflamed with love and wanting, I arose
And went, as no one knows,
When all my house lay long in deep repose

-St John of the Cross

I envy not in any moods
The captive void of noble rage,
The linnet born within the cage,
That never knew the summer woods;

In envy not the beast that takes
His license in the field of time,
Unfetter'd by the sense of crime,
To whom a conscience never wakes;

Nor, what may count itself as blest,
The heart that never plighted troth

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

Years ago, I was filled with excitement as I carried my copy of “Seven...
