Photo Journal January 2017- Beginning The Year With Openness

This is the first in a series of posts I plan to do capturing the months of the year in quiet, subtle images. I spent January planning for, doing, and recovering from a two week drive adventure across the country with my husband, Filip, and our dog, Au. We were heading back west.

The theme of January was Openness; a kind of innocent, moving forward that is half lifted heart, half blindness. I listened to Donald trumps first speech as president as I drove through a thick, cold fog across Kansas, in utter disbelief. Some things are real, and not real.

Its always from these moments of openness with a light and integrity-filled expectation for the future that dreams are born.

Enjoy these images and may the seeds of a new year continue to grow for all of us.


Like brick, like diamond, like invincible spirit.




AU boy.


Grace in Kansas City.


Driving across the plains covered in snow.


High elevation blizzard, Utah.




Alone in the canyon.


Grateful for the tree spirits.


Unconditional spring.


In the half light, beginning again. And again.
