Little Bits of Life
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
And can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life? ~Landslide (Fleetwood Mac)
This week's Song-ography prompt is Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. It moves me to tears when I hear it...especially as I get a bit older. The lyrics are profound...and of course, after seeing them up above, the song is officially stuck in my head and I'm singing it out loud as I compose this blog post. :)
I'm so incredibly grateful to photography. It has comforted me and given me such joy these last four years as I adjust to the different seasons of my life. It's one of the few hobbies I have stuck with. I have so much love and passion for it...it takes me outside myself and reminds me there's a whole world of miracles out there for those who will notice. It gives me something to look forward to every day, even through the landslides. Whether I'm having an up day or a down day, I can go outside with my camera and feel peace while I seek out something alive in nature. It's there waiting every moment of every day - little bits of beauty and life. We just have to look.
