  • The rain has finally stopped and the sun is shining gloriously. It feels like a blanket has lifted from the sky and everyone can breathe a little easier.

    It reminds me of hot days with nothing to do. When I walked the streets with my camera watching other peoples lives.

    Today should have been my mother's birthday. Cancer is a disease that robs us of anniversaries and celebrations we should have had. It's not the only one. Sometimes we rob ourselves of turning our faces to the sun in our lives.

    But the Earth circles the sun, and not the other way around. We cannot demand when fortune falls on us or know whether we'll be ready for it when it does.

    We must simply wait for synchronicity in the inner and outer shine.
