never stop reaching heavenward

"We can learn a lot from trees: they're always grounded
but never stop reaching heavenward. "
~Everett Mámor

the new year in chicago was blanketed with beautiful snow.
we drove to the lake and took some photographs of the
stunning trees adorned with snow. it was amazing to
see all the other people taking pictures. it was a very cold

the beginning of the new year is always full of so much hope
and inspiration. it forces me to re-evaluate my goals and dreams
and one of them is to continue to take photographs and learn
some new skills. i'm very excited about the new year.
i hope you are as well!

A tree is a poet; watch every leaf as it sways; watch it, when it is denuded,
Touch the bark and you'll know that it aint dumb.It draws colours from the heart of the earth so that in your quietness you too may bloom.
