week forty-seven

I create because I am who I am...
I am who I am because I create. 
to make something beautiful 
and meaningful with my own hands
a gift I treasure.
preserving memories
making memories
I am blissful within my memories
dancing like my 12 year old self
singing because I love it
making art out of life.

week forty-six

perhaps no one really understands
what it means to me...
to take a picture of myself
to capture that exact moment in time
too have something tangible to share
this is the thing I can give...
the thing I can believe has meaning 
beyond just myself.
this is my journey: 
self portraiture and poetry.
so I will never forget...

week forty-five

i took a walk today 
in the still of the cool autumn air
where the chill whispered its secrets to me 
and told me truth:
i am good enough. 
i am worthy.
i am brave. 
and for once
perhaps twice 
and most definitely a third time
i believed.

week forty-four

the warmth from the sun
does much to soothe 
the aches I feel
some physical
some emotional
the daylight helps ease from my mind
the sleepless nights I suffer through
I'm tired ~ but can't close my eyes
I'm trying ~ to find peace inside
comforted today just by 
the light from the sun
resting softly on my face.

this month was full of highs and lows...and they all seemed to match the weather.  fall has definitely arrived and i am so thankful for it.  the leaves all become flowers and the crisp air is welcomed after the stifling heat.  this project is winding to a close... but i feel like i am just now beginning to tell my story.  i am embracing the time i have left in 2010.  here's to another new month. 

1. week | thirty-nine, 2. week | forty, 3. week | forty-one, 4. week | forty-two, 5. week | forty-three
