I am constantly in awe of the beauty that is all around me if I have my eyes open to it.

Sometimes I find it in the midst of boxes and memories, the sound of a favorite jazz album, how different spring looks at a new place, memes sent back and forth until we talk, piles of marks on paper I want to hang in my new studio, coffee in the afternoon sun off our new deck and a million other big and little things.

Sometimes I even find it online within this vast and beautiful creative community.
