  2. This brought a tear to my eye. A beautiful, surreal, blurred photo paired with a powerful reminder. What we CAN be can also seem beautiful, surreal and blurred all at once too. Thank you!

  3. Oh ktlee… another heartfelt and beautiful interpretation. I wish you lived here instead of Holland and could be my blogging partner…I love your thoughtful comments. I agree… we can see it, we can feel it – but it’s still intangible to us, so yes blurred and so surreal. Then, it takes a lot of courage to ‘go for it’ and truly become our potential! I had this quote on the kitchen blackboard while my kids were growing up. Really powerful to contemplate. So glad you liked it – and the image to match!!

    Wow! You are not only a natural when it comes to photography, you have definitely got an eye when it comes to altering images in the digital darkroom! So great to see the evolution of your work.

  9. oooo you really like it Jill? I’m so glad. Was a bit insecure about my intentional over-blur here but wanted to create a surrealistic dream effect (‘dream of what you might become’ type thing). Thrilled you thought it worked from a photographic perspective. As always – so great to have your input, and so appreciated!!
