| women |


"i want to apologize 
to all the women 
i have called beautiful 
before i’ve called them 
intelligent or brave

i am sorry i made it sound 
as though
something as simple 
as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains
with your wit

from now on 
i will say things like
you are resilient, or 
you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that"

{ moon & clouds }


photographing the low clouds & noticed the moon out early...
& then these angelic clouds formed.

{ hostas }


as the last of the hostas bloom
& the sun softens.
enjoy the beauty as
the summer fades.

{ another sunrise }


at least one morning while up north
i get up to greet the sun rising.
everyone else is sleeping.
it is just me,
the water,
& the sun.

peace.


and this was Caesar's first time at the lake.
