Bend to the wind


I’ve weathered maelstroms and hurricanes, earthquakes and dust devils.

I’ve been adrift in a violent sea, spinning unanchored in a relentless vortex. The unfathomable waters infested with sea creatures born of nightmares and fear.

I’ve been without a guiding light, without a life jacket. I’ve been lost and far from shelter.

But I survived…

I endured the whipping gales and shaking ground. I’ve battled my devils and diminished their anger.

I braved the Kraken, swam through the deep, dark ocean, and found my way back to shore.

Fate’s wild winds hammer at me still. I bend, but I’m not broken.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. I bend but I’m not broken.
    My newest mantra for sure.
    ..there is such hope in those words, in the choice to not break, isn’t there?


  2. easier to say and sing than It’s The End Of The World As We Know It

    I like the lay of the words and the build of strength. Makes me cheer for you/whomever.
