Sometimes less is more. 

I love color!  It creates a mood.  It provides ingredients for me to play with form and texture.  It is music to my soul. 

But there is something magical about the essence of a black and white photo that grabs ahold of me.  I experience a sense of calm and serenity and something powerful behind these simple shades and hues.  

 A gentle reminder that even the simple things can make a bold statement and have a dramatic impact.

One thing is for sure.  Nothing remains the same.  Everything changes.  

The seasons come and the seasons go.  Waves wash in with the tide, and they wash out again.  The darkest hours are always followed by a fresh ray of light.  One chapter ends and another begins. One door closes and another door swings open, presenting new opportunities. We grow older, our bodies change.  Time passes and tomorrow is a new day with a new beginning. 

Love deeply, laugh hard, play often, color outside the lines, make up your own rules, remain a curious mind, keep an open heart, take chances, do what you love, embrace difference, walk to the beat of your own drum, remain open to possibility. 

Because in the end, change happens, whether we like it or not.  Even on the worst days, "this too shall pass."  And what might we be missing if our eyes, hearts and bodies were not open to the sweet beauty that lies ahead?
