.~.Let God Be God.~

So you see life has been pretty tough for awhile.  People I love have been very sick.  I mean life threatening sick.  For a long while now, I have been  worrying about everyone.  All this worrying has made me very anxious, sad and depressed.  Today I reached out to God and asked for help.  Basically He told me to "Snap out if it!"  Well not in those exact words.  Really what He said was don't worry, "just let Me be Me".  "Which is the equivalent to "let God be God."

So I went out and got this balloon.
 I wrote on it the names of the people I love who are sick. 
 I am going to let it go.
  Let Go
Let God be God. 
 He will take care of my family. 
I know this because
 I Believe He Will.

I sketched this out the other day and have decided to turn it into a painting.
  I can't wait to see how it turns out.

“I knew that I had come face to face with some one whose mere personality was so fascinating that, if I allowed it to do so, it would absorb my whole nature, my whole soul, my very art itself.”

.~Be Like Water.~

I took this photograph of these two Koi fish at the Cincinnati Zoo this spring. When I cam across this quote by Bruce Lee, it seemed to fit the photo perfectly~.

About Me

My photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
