A Day Well-Lived – A late-in-the-day post, but for good reason. Today was a day well-lived. Our initial goal was to get a jump on the sun. It has been too long since I’ve encountered this one of life’s daily miracles up close, and it never fails to disappoint. Most often I’m flying solo when it comes to shooting a sunrise, so it is something very special when I’m able to witness it next to the one person who has been my very foundation. Bonnie and I spent the day touring around the north shore of eastern Long Island on what has been a long overdue beautiful, crisp fall day. Sunrise, early morning clouds, a hidden autumnal gem and sunset over the Sound. Not to mention a wonderful lunch with a friend and spiritual counselor.
This is the off-week for treatment, and we’ve opted to make the most of these days. For me that includes packing my camera and keeping my eyes on the world we are speeding through. There is so much to see, to experience, to share. Today was a day to look outward, to revel in all of the beauty that surrounds us, to soak in all of the life energy that pulses through nature and through us, nurturing us with hope and strength. Cancer lost today.
Do the things you can do to bring light into your world.
I’m taking a photo a day to help the American Cancer Society fight for a world without cancer. Like so many, I have known family and friends who’ve battled the disease, including some who continue to fight. This year, I find myself personally impacted, and it occurs to me that this platform offers a way to channel my passion for photography to help relay a personal journey that may resonate with others.
