i’ve been trying to transcend the mundane for 25+ years now.
i got an early taste of the moondance that is inspiration, swimming around in deep waters, experiencing and making art. first it was music, then words, now photographs. and at every turn i’ve covered my eyes at taxes and mail and applications and logistics of all colors–but what they don’t tell you about being a mom full time is that you are a logistics manager extraordinaire–schedules and appointments and keeping track of important crap, plus all the important crap only multiplies with the consequences ballooning up too when you have a child with special needs.
so squirming under that pin and trying to keep your head to the sky and your heart to the stars while cleaning up a constant trail of bodily fluids and library books–this, i finally realized, is my struggle: trying to stay big in a world piled up with the urgent small.
here’s your reminder, mamas and papas, that the quiet work you do is outside the realm of the measurable tinies.
If you live in southern California and you really want photos of your family that tell the whole story–the love and the bliss and the sacrifice too–I’d love to photograph your family.
