//

some morning light

I want to stand where I can
see outside into the
bright morning day that is
blooming out there not that
I’m not happy inside the cement fluorescence;
it’s better now, the light is also inside
but I still long to drop what I am doing & run out the doors into the bright fresh morning
& sit under a tree reading a book, lying on a blanket in the grass
& changing the direction of the tracks
so that I am happy right now,
not just at some undetermined point in the future

NEW PHOTO BOOK: EPIC FLORIDA ROAD TRIP: THE PHOTO ALBUMS – DAY 1: Myakka River State Park, Sanibel Island, & Naples

In May of 2017, I went on a road trip that changed my life. I later dubbed it my “Epic Florida Road Trip”. It was my first vacation ever – a life-changing solo trip that took me from my home in Tampa south to the Everglades, down through the Florida Keys, Miami, & north again to St. Augustine. It lasted a week, & when I returned from it, I wasn’t the same person I’d been when I’d left. I returned with a lot of amazing, magical memories, a lot of no-see-um-bites, & a lot of stories to tell. But the biggest thing I brought back with me was a quiet, bold confidence in the knowledge that I knew how to take care of myself, knew what I needed to do to fix the problems in my life, & deep down, knew how to be happy again.These are the photos from that time.–This is book one of seven photo albums from my road trip – there is one book for each day of the trip spanning the highlight photos of the day & showing the things I did. I hope that these books feel like the kind of photo album your friend would share with you if they had gone on a vacation – honest & beautiful & joyous.
