picturing SUPPORT

I received this beautiful show of support for the photo show from my mother and father-in-law. It makes my heart ache spring.

picturing YIPPEE!

Well, my photography art show with the fabulous Meghan Davidson has come and gone.

I am happy to report that it exceeded my expectations in every…single…way. I am over the moon with excitement.

It was such a delight to enlarge, mat, and frame the photos. It made me appreciate them in different ways than when I originally took them. We had an amazing turnout — 150+ people (!!). Thank you to those of you who were able to actually come to the show and those who supported me from afar with cards, flowers, thoughtful notes, and happy vibes. We actually SOLD some photos – thanks for the support of our work and the generous donations to the Lincoln Community Playhouse.

In fact……..we’ve already been invited back for next season!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Below are a few shots from the show, including the sign with our names in lights (and, yes, I guess I am a real artist), some displays of the photos, and, of course, Meghan, as well as, some of our supporters (Tom, my folks)!! I’ll be excited to share more photos and stories from the night in the weeks to come! Yippee!

picturing TRUST

The photography show is tomorrow night! As I’ve been anticipating the actual show and reflecting on the preparation for the show, I am once again reminded of the importance of trust. Trusting that listening to the deepest longings of our hearts will reveal our own unique path and that by simply taking one step toward our heart’s desire gives the universe the space to respond in the most unexpected and delightful ways.

For me, this photography show is one of those mondo beyondo dreams — so big that I could not quite articulate it or put it out to the universe because it would break my heart if it never came true. However, when it comes to dreams (and pretty much anything), I trust that if we do our part, the universe will do its part. When we take a small step toward our dreams (e.g., buying a camera, taking a class, signing up for a 5k, opening a travel fund account),  the universe often takes a giant leap forward. It is very much a collaborative effort.

When I start to become overwhelmed — I can’t believe this is happening, what if this is my first, but also last show, will people like the work, will people buy the work — I just remind myself that trust is the answer. Trusting in our own hearts and trusting that something greater than ourselves is supporting, holding, and loving us. In fact, I think I might have caught a glimpse of this guardian angel earlier this week.

Thanks again for all of your support and I can’t wait to give a full report next week!

picturing A SNEAK PEAK

Just thought I’d give you a sneak peak into our preparations for the show. The fabulous Meghan Davidson is pictured here putting together note cards!

Also, if you’re interested in seeing some other pictures that *might* make their way into the show, check out my recently opened etsy shop (you can also find a link in the sidebar of the blog).

Just enjoying the ups and downs (mostly ups) of this rollercoaster ride.
