Taking stock

May 2013 GratitudeAs a very busy spring ends, I'm taking a breath before the season changes again.Oh, these transitions. They require so much practical planning and emotional adjusting.

Depending on the day, I find myself either madly cramming in every last project on my hefty To Do list, or paralyzed by those jobs that simply won't get done before summer begins.

When I find myself overwhelmed, my first urge is always to freeze time. I'm a time junkie. Just one more second...I swear that's all I need.

So I do. I find my camera and I freeze time. And the results become a visual gratitude journal, complete with friends, family and the wondrous, inspiring place I call home.

When words fail me, my eyes save me. Every single time.
