Sacred Place Within
It is important that we sit still sometimes. It is important to take a moment and then to look around us and realize that despite all the suffering and the pain ... this world is beautiful. When I decided to take self-portraits I sat on the floor. I had my favorite music playing through the speaker and the remote for my camera in my hand. The sun felt so warm, like it didn't for a long time. I felt as safe as I haven't felt in a long time. I took a deep breath and took the first photo. When it popped up on my computer screen I was happy. The photo wasn't perfect. It was a bit grainy and a bit out of focus. But it captured a moment. A moment of peace within.
