my brightest aspirations.

"Far away, there in the sunshine,

are my brightest aspirations.

I may not reach them,

but I can look up and see their beauty,

believe in them and try to follow where they lead."

10 things i &hearts about my nephew...

  1. when he laughs in his sleep.
  2. the way his eyes get big when he's excited about something.
  3. his precious little cheeks.
  4. little secret dimples that sprout when he smiles.
  5. his facial expressions when he's watching a movie.
  6. the sound of his infectious silly giggle.
  7. the way he says my name....tray-shee!!!...when he's ordering me around.
  8. his big brown sparklyeyes.
  9. the drawings he leaves behind after a visit.
  10. his wild, brilliant, + miraculous mind.

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

butterfly effect...

"The images in this series combine the shape of the butterfly – a fragile creature that represents the fragility of the natural world – with the texture of the printed map: a manifestation of man's absolute domination of the planet."
