  • My Amazing Mom

    To try to think of one particularly great story about my mom that really stands out..is kind of a challenge. That feels weird to write it, and said out loud its even more strange. I guess life with my mom was just an endless series of great moments, great days..a bunch of small every day things that comprised one amazing life.My mom passed away 18…read more

    To my younger self

    To your younger self,

    I know you because I was once you. You were always angry, so angry to the point where your dad took you to anger management classes. You would get into fights without any real cause behind it. Then, the school would suspend you because of it. I am really proud of you by the way because now we were able to cool our anger down…read more

    • Kayjah,

      You are an incredible person and have so much to be proud of. You are so brave and strong, as you have shown courage by facing the things that hurt and finding healthy ways to heal. I think each one of us struggles as young people to cope with whatever hurt we face. And the way in which you worked through your anger to become the sweet,…read more

    A thousand words

    Dear Photography,
    I write this today to let you know how grateful I am for you. You helped me find a spark to keep me going when I wasn’t sure I could. I built my skills within your confines in the classic sense of trial and error. I took no classes, hell I didn’t even read the owners manual of my first camera. I took that camera out into the…read more

    • For me I didn’t start out intending for it to hurt this long, losing her. It is hard because while my physical appearance is a carbon copy of my Father 28 years younger, my inward attitude and almost all other defining characteristics belong to my Mother. From being left handed to my brown eye, just about everything that lies below the surface is…read more

    Dear Unsealers,
    I may have grown up in the fifties and sixties when women were relegated to domestic roles but I was
    very lucky. I had a Dad and Mom who always made me feel that I could do more in life. They believed in me and encouraged me to get a good education and choose a career that would make me happy. I was lucky to find…read more

    • Mom,

      I always used to wonder why I am the way I am. I used to think we weren’t alike. I was more outspoken, more daring and a lot more aggressive than you. But as I have gotten older, I realize that although our personalities seem so different, there are a lot of similarities at the core of who we are. Mom, you set an example for me that a woman…read more
