"We must create what we most need to find." -Sabrina Ward Harrison
What I most needed to find this year was me. And that is what prompted this journey of self-discovery through poetry and portraiture. I turned the camera on myself in hopes of discovering my true nature, the things that made my heart sing and how I coped with what life threw my way. In between all those things I found beauty, honesty, and truth. I found my voice.
In the end, looking back, this is the greatest gift I could ever give. And not just to myself, but to all who take a moment to read and look and peer into this book. It is a gift to my husband. A gift to my mother. A gift to my friends; the ones who really know me and the ones I've just made. A gift to those I've formed a bond with in the wonderful online creative world. A gift to those who love poetry. A gift to those who enjoy portraits. A gift to those who need some inspiration, or just the knowledge that someone out there feels the same way they do. A gift to those starting out on their own journey.
My book is now available for purchase. This is my heart on paper. I hope you find a little of yourself among the pages. May it be a little part of your own journey.
