Sometimes it’s good to just sit in a quiet place to reflect for a moment about where you are in a world that oftentimes surrounds you with challenges that seem out of your control. Perhaps, for just a little bit, you are able to escape to a place that seems familiar, warm and comfortable. A place where you can let your mind unwind from those challenges that are so invasive to your thoughts of hope, peace and a better tomorrow. Photography allows us to capture moments like those, and yields an opportunity to open the avenues of our minds … over and over again. All of us need a safe place, from time to time, that will allow our thoughts to roam along different paths in search of life experiences that create a smile, a kind thought, or just peaceful solace.
