Exploring “…my mother died. I was with her. She is with me”

My mother died when I was 15. The impact lingers to this day. So this piece by Masaru Goto struck me deeply:

…my mother died. I was with her. She is with me

I love the intersection of poetry and photography. I want to explore that myself. A powerfully moving project.

 

Your Best Isn't "Nothing"!

As you may have noticed, I think very highly of Seth Godin. This blog post gave words to an idea I've been considering:

Money for nothing

Seth says "...your best work isn't nothing...". I adore that! A reminder that our work is valuable, that our lives have worth. Seeking shortcuts to accomplishment not only shortchanges the one seeking the easy path, it short changes us all. We need to see the value we add, embrace that, and, then, get to work!

I hope you have a marvelously productive Monday!

When searching for a "Featured Image" for this post, I came across this one. Reminds of my favorite things when working for Starbucks and Microsoft.

Life's Brutalities

Darkness
Hints of red
Burning coals
Rage, consuming
Leaving nothing
But the charred remains
And regret

Ed Sheeran - Galway Girl [Official Video]

Every song by Mr. Sheeran I discover sounds better than the last. Now, with my love of Irish music, this was "sings" loudly to me.



Anyway, enjoy!
