After finishing up an assignment for ACU I ventured to Berlin for my last weekend abroad. These, my last frames on this extraordinary adventure, were shot on the evening of MyFest. I wanted to stay out much longer, but I was exhausted and was coming down with a nasty head cold and sore throat. The next morning I woke up sicker than shit and to news that Osama B was killed. It was the longest flight home, ever.
I hadn’t planned on writing much on any of these family posts this week, if any at all, but as I was getting ready to show these pictures tonight, I had to pause.
It’s on a rare night like this when I’m sitting here staring at the images in front of me, something profound knocks me off my chair. It’s something really just forgotten.
No matter the worries or problems or people that might be weighing me down in my day, life moves forward, with or without you, and devoting time to the voids in your life is nothing more than wasted energy. Seeing Lynde and Charlie starting their family just a few short years after shooting their engagement and wedding, well, THAT, is a big positive charge in helping wipe away those voids in my day. Deep in my heart there is a happiness erupting and I realize, THIS, is healing to me. THIS, lifts me up, straightens me out and sets me down with feet moving forward. THIS, is good for me.
Lynde and Charlie, you are beautiful people, thank you for reminding me the world is also.
