The Sky: Who can't see it?
It was a tough day yesterday. It was even more difficult for my husband and his family. I'm not going to go into all the details in this post, but it does have to go with the difficult decisions you have to make with a loved one going through the terrible disease of Alzheimer's.
It's amazing to me when you experience days like these you at some point get the gift of clarity that God is in control. We came home as the sun was setting. As I rounded the corner and looked out over the lake, this is what I saw. Wow! I grabbed my camera once again and rain down to the lake. After clicking off many different angles, I just stood there in amazement. The first thought that came into my mind was how can someone deny there is a God when night after night there is a new and different sunset. Each one unique and each one as beautiful as the next.
Life definitely is not about ourselves. Please, don't forget to find joy in each day. Even the tough days.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
