Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression


 In the spirit of Father’s Day, I dedicate this post to my amazing Dad who taught me to
live passionately, love fully and never give up on
the notion that we can create
our own luck.

Happy Father’s Day Dad,
I Love You

        You’re not the first person to think I have blue eyes Robyn – they are a greyish-green, but if I put blue mascara on my fair eyelashes, my eyes look more blue. They seem to change colour depending on my state of health.

      • So interesting Victoria… Blue mascara sounds lovely — and eyes as a window to health makes sense to me!

  13. Beautiful post and photographs, I wrote this for my Dad…
    Fathers Day

    What can We say to the best Dad in the World,

    We love you, you know that,

    What is Love?

    Loving is caring and sharing and not judging.

    Loving is being there for one another,

    In times of need, in times of sorrow, in happy times,

    Love is the best,

    Love takes over the rest,

    Love makes everything alright,

    Love helps you sleep well at night,

    (So does a glass of Wine or Brandy Lol)

    Love is a safe feeling that makes you feel warm,

    Love is an anecdote that makes you feel calm.

    Love is unconditional and true.

    Love is You.

    Keep up the great posts
    Best Wishes

  14. Oh how precious! And what a wonderful way to honor your dad….that is wonderful advice he gave you to live by! Thanks for sharing him with us….

    June 18, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    • Thanks so very much Celeste. Yes – he wanted me to know that outside forces may influence, but don’t always have to determine our destiny, and we can participate in creating our best life. Was profound to me as a little girl since I thought you had to be “lucky” for good things to occur. Of course on Father’s Day I asked him directly about his thoughts on health challenges – and there he said, we had less control unfortunately. Was interesting how the blog post spurred this dialogue! So happy you enjoyed the post as well Celeste – and hoping you get your wordpress woes all worked out very soon!! Much Love ~RL

  15. teary joy! – this marvelous post of yours Robyn!

  16. This last picture of you sitting in his lap just inspired me to write something…here goes if you don’t mind :). It came to me in another language but i wrote it in English

    ” A daughter is never too old
    To be loved by her father
    A son is never too old
    to be scolded by his father
    A child is never too old
    to be loved by her father”


    June 26, 2012 at 11:51 PM

    • First line should be ” A daughter is never too old to be held by her father” :)…

      June 26, 2012 at 11:51 PM

    • Aww..thank you for that boomie — wonderful words – and so thrilled that the photo inspired them… Yes – I think a daughter is always seen as her father’s ‘child’ or ‘little girl’ — though a son may be a different story!! 🙂 Sending warm wishes tonight ~ RL
