Emotions wash over me like waves. Sadness. Mourning. Joy. Love. Sometimes I feel like I'm fighting just to tread water... I get caught up in the singularity of an event or a feeling and I forget to open my eyes and look at the beautiful gifts I have been given. I've been struggling lately... feeling alone and misunderstood. But these simple images I captured at the park last week reminded me to step back and look at my life as a whole story and to cherish the individual moments, but not to dwell in them. Each moment, each experience is simply a part of my story.
