“In the midst of all this uncertainty, remember: The first person who needs your Love is You.” ~ Mary Carroll-Hackett     Sometimes all you need is a stroll down a summer street. I don’t recommend standing in the middle of the street to get a shot, but if there are no cars coming, what’s the harm?

“The keys to patience are acceptance and faith. Accept things as they are, and look realistically at the world around you. Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen.” ~ Ralph Marston     You might recall my post from June 20 of this year when I posted both a color and a black & white image of this scene.

“May your troubles be less and your blessings more, and nothing but happiness come through your door.” ~ Irish Proverb     It was about 8:30 when I left Lexington Cemetery after my sunrise service hopping extravaganza.

“Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from the negative.” ~ Unknown     Big puffy clouds peaked through the afternoon storm as we left work. Stacy and I spotted them at the same time. I stopped the car, and without hesitation, we both got out, cameras in hand. It was a pretty end to a productive work week.

“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.” ~ Criss Jami I was privileged to be a small part of the opening day of The Girl Project thanks to my day job with the Nunn Center for Oral History. A few years ago, directors Vanessa Becker Weig and Ellie Clark (below) had an idea. Using theater and the arts, they would build a
