Room to spare

lake side and wide open skies

I can’t breathe. This room is closing in on me and claustrophobia keeps jabbing me with sharp sticks. I can’t fight back in this suffocating space.

The promise of the wind in my hair, the sun on my skin, the warm earth beneath my feet, keeps me yearning for freedom. I long for wide open spaces, room to stretch and run. I need room to turn over an idea, and chase a dream. I want to swim in an ocean of memories, and climb to the top of a mountain of possibilities.

Don’t shut me in. I need more room.

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. “En plein air” is best for creating – to be outdoors – the vastness of sky makes creative possibilities infinite

  2. there are so many emotions spilling from me about your words. I yearn. I feel like I am in a season of yearning lately and your words captured that feeling for me.


  3. Your story speaks to me. I’ve been housebound for almost 90 days due to an accident. When I get outside, I’m like a child. I breathe in the fresh air and my eyes devour all of the nature that surrounds me. Thank you for your story. It’s breathtaking.
