Surviving the Storm | Hampton VA Photographer

Hello out there! I know I’ve been so so quiet on this page and I'm sure you can probably guess why. But I suddenly felt the need to pop in and say how much I've been thinking about my wonderful followers and friends and to check in on everyone. I hope you're doing okay and still finding a way to thrive during this period of isolation. Each day seems surreal for me and I'm sure others must feel the same way. Did you ever see a short film called, "All Summer in a Day"? It's based on a sci-fi short story by American writer Ray Bradbury. The story is about a class of children on Venus, which, in the story, is a world of constant rainstorms, where the Sun is only visible for one hour every seven years. One of the children, Margot, moved to Venus from Earth five years earlier, and she is the only one who remembers sunshine, since the Sun shone regularly on Earth. When the teacher asks them to write a poem about the sun, hers is: "I think the sun is a flower, That blooms for just one hour." I feel sorta like Margot, waiting to see the Sun again. Maybe you do too. I hope that when we finally bloom again it will be life-changing and we will have learned much from the temporary loss of our "normal". I pray we come out into the Sun reflecting the things we truly value about life, relationships, and all that brings meaning into being alive. I've been photographing personal things around the house during the downtime and working on some behind the scenes stuff for when the "day comes". One of my favorite past times has been listening to the music of the wind-chimes on the front porch. It calms me and helps me clear my head and dream. I wanted to share them with you in images and video and I hope it helps you in some small way to clear your mind, calm your spirit, and dream. love to all! XOXOXOX
