"Our task, must be to free ourselves . . .
by widening our circle of compassion to embrace
all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."
Bonnie gave us the word embrace as our challenge this month and oh the many
ways I could interpret this word . . . but I limited it to two photos.
When I hear the word embrace, my first thought . . . is life.
Wrapping your arms around it, taking it all in with your eyes, your whole being.
Life happens everyday all around us. This we know, yet we still miss so much of it.
And the older I get, well, the more I want to know,
the more I want to see . . . the more I want to find.
I want to notice everything . . . and embrace it all!
That's why I love my camera. Not just because it helps me to "see",
but because it allows me to record these embraced moments.

This next photo I chose is one from a recent varsity football game. Before every game our players make
their way to the end of the field and they all take a knee and bow their heads. No matter how many times
I photograph a scene like this I'm drawn to it over and over again. This never gets old.
He was the last one to get up . . . he was completely embracing the moment.
And, so was I.
Take a moment to embrace all the other art work hung in Bonnie's art gallery here.
Embrace your day,
