My favorite book of 2016 arrived 6 days before the end of 2016. A Christmas gift from my brother and on the topic of words and how we as women craft ourselves for social consumption. This book will be riding shotgun well into the new year.
This is my favorite photo of 2016 not just because it’s of my daughter, but because it captures her disposition. The day I took this picture of her, we were aimlessly wandering the lighthouse jetty. She was happy to be home from school for a short break and I was happy to have the time with her, if only for a few days. I told her to sit, stood over her and asked she look up at the camera. Those eyes. She’s always had those eyes. My mom and youngest brother has those eyes. She was born, eyes wide, staring and searching for the sound of my voice, for the world. There’s always a glint of hope riding the current behind those eyes.
This is my first post for December Reflections 2016 photography challenge. What’s on my table? The latest copy of Willow and Sage magazine just in time for DIY bath and body gift ideas for family and friends.
