How do you write about yourself? Is this an image of how you see yourself, or is it the image you hope others see when reading what you labored over? I think this blog is about my need for expression, a longing for the truth of my soul to be laid bare in the light of my new life. I have changed everything about me, including my birth name, in the hopes of finding a better way of existence, a simpler lifestyle full of promise and joy, beauty and hardship, and the careful balance in all of them. I hope to draw you in with the moments I capture through the lens, in the stories I write from the heart. If I can make you feel as well as see through my eyes, I will have accomplished something great in my life.
