this is it. / this is life.

Nothing else matters, but the people we love and loving the land on which we live and breathe. Forget concrete and cars, careers and conflicts… instead, let’s escape for a day. We’ll leap over puddles and laugh ‘til we cry. We’ll gaze up at the birds and rest easy as the storm clouds pass. In these moments, it’s true... nothing else matters.

Sending Joy to Japan I was delighted when the mother of these sisters (a beautiful soul) told me she forwarded her slideshow to their relatives in Japan who have been affected by the recent earthquakes and tsunami. She told me that the photographs brought them such joy. How honored I feel to have been a part of spreading joy at such a troubling time. Isn't it amazing how photographs are a universal language of emotion that we can all relate to, near and far?
