Dancing in Sunshine...
Don't you just relish being around folks who love you at your worst and yet always make you want to be your best?
That's probably one of my favorite things about my daughter... though the list is quite long.
She has inspired me to want to improve my photography skills by her example... She has become very, very good and she is working to be even better. I love that!
I want to be better. So, I've set a goal of taking at least one photography class this year... really trying to get better. I'm pretty intimidated by the idea of a class... but, there's much I have to learn.
I've been trying to define exactly what it is in a photograph, or any art, that makes me really like it... My answer is that it has to elicit a feeling.
I would like to be able to convey the feeling that my knits (or whatever) give me...
One of the things I've learned in life is that we quickly recognize the familiar...
So, maybe the ultimate challenge would be to share that feeling with someone who has never had it... ???
Just pondering here...
A very, very special thank you to Amanda for indulging me with this photo session. She UNDERSTANDS the desire to capture... and shares the love of the pursuit.
Shawl is Morticia by Boo Knits. Done in Madelinetosh Lite: Esoteric.
The yarn I'm using in the Stripy Crochet is Madelinetosh Tosh DK. I'll be sharing more about it soon.
My heart's hope is that there is someone in your life who inspires you to be bigger than you are... reach higher... do more... and yet, loves you when you do nothing at all. We all need at least one of those. I am blessed to have many.
Life. Liberty. And the pursuit of Happiness.
May you dance in sunshine today.
blessings to all ~ tanna
