Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression


“Beneath the cracks and crevices, amidst rough edges and distress;
there lies substance and fortitude, quiet strength we all possess.” 

~Robyn Lee

This post is dedicated to fellow blogger Julie Goyder ( jmgoyder ) who has lovingly encouraged me to share my words.

  2. 😉 You re very welcome Julie and thanks. Went right to work on it after your comment yesterday – had no plan for a post so you inspired me. Found the image and the quote just sort of wrote itself very quickly. Will try another tomorrow perhaps… Do hope today went ok for you. You were in my thoughts!

  5. At times it’s easy to forget there is more than just the broken pieces and you just have to look past them.

    That quote is great and so is the photo!

    • Thanks Renee, so glad you liked. I liked the photo too – had it a while but never found a good quote so when Julie suggested I write my own quotes sometimes, I thought I’d give it a try. I’m pleased with it too! xo

    Robyn — omg – these lines are terrific! Poetic and inspiring… they give meaning to an image of a field of craggy rocks.

    • Ivy-thrilled you enjoyed this one. Yes – the craggy rocks deserve meaning too;)

  11. neither you or David posted anything new today, and I’m just about dying from being around a relative’s energy……OMG! So I needed to retreat to yours and David’s older posts. Thank you for your energy and being you. I was looking at your past photos…..so many fantastic pictures. You are sooo very talented. 🙂

    • You are so funny Sam! Thank you for thinking of visiting my blog for reprieve 🙂 I also noticed the void in David’s am post!! So glad you enjoyed it here amongst some of my more ancient creations.

      At first I intended to post only photos on this blog… then did some narratives (links to pages) then went on to adding quotes on top… this was the first I wrote my own quote (prompting from sweet Julie – blogger friend) … and then to some short poems … and now venturing into a bit more personal/involved poetry. The pain shadows started with narrative. It’s interesting how it all evolves isn’t it? Did you know what your blog would be when you began??

      So sweet to say I have any talent…. really winging it. I just started with the photos in the fall (quite by accident) and have loved writing but haven’t done much creative work in years.

      Hope your holiday went well… I’m hiding out now with beautiful meditative music and a candle… as the fireworks serenade me in the background… I prefer peaceful sounds (as you might imagine)!!! xxooo Sending love — Oh I’ll send you a link to a beautiful peaceful song I’m listening to.
