So, there have been some ups and downs here in Seattle. From the outside all looks calm, and compared to the wild mood swings and vicious turns in perspective of years ago (before antidepressants) this is a walk in the park.
Nonetheless, there are peaks and valleys that come with the giant leap of moving from one state to another.
A wonderfully pleasing surprise has been, as was always my dream about living in the Pacific Northwest, that this place heals.
The natural wonder that abounds here, that takes over in some places and refuses to let go, that threatens to push hard against humanity at any moment, is my salvation.
A walk in a park cures. A photo shoot on location by the sea, so that I take only photos and leave only footprints, is the sweetest medicine of all.
I hope you enjoy the results.
This is the park that held me in it’s comforting embrace.
