Influenced in the loveliest of ways by Rachel and her Photographing Happiness project, I have used my iPhone 6 with a little more intention over the past month. It has been during a time of emotional upheaval, packing to leave Sydney, Christmas and a new year all wrapped up in doubts and hopes! I tend to like a challenge, and finding the space within this busy period of time to stop and notice the moments turned out to be the perfect antidote to overwhelm.
I spend quite a lot of time at home, I like it here. Sometimes I wonder if I will look back on my life and wish I had travelled more and spent less time on the daybed, I doubt it. This is the place where the afternoon light falls, where the fairy lights frame our favourite photos, and where I taught my little person to read, write his name, hug, and stay warm on cold nights. It is also the place where we take haven together from the things that have hurt us. It is where we have healed together, in the light.
Hello Autumn! If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere with me then you may be a little sad to say goodbye to Summer .. although it certainly doesn’t feel like Autumn yet! Do you mark the passing of the seasons in any way? I thought it might be nice to do that together ..
