It’s all too much, and I feel so inadequate yet at the same time so blessed to have lost no loved ones, to have enough to eat, to be able to sleep in my own bed, and most blessedly – to be able to go home. A 62-year-old woman cried on screen tonight as she said through her tears, “I just want to go home.” And she was standing on it. It was rubble beneath her feet.
Watching the news leaves me with a feeling of helplessness but I continue to watch as it breaks my heart. And later, to calm my thoughts, I work on images I’ve taken that give me a sense of peace.
I can see the house in the background and the breakfast nook.
I’ve had some of these images waiting here for the past two days but could think of nothing to say.
Do you ever get like that? Where the words just won’t come?
I took all of the photos you see here on Saturday morning before the storm rolled through. I wanted to capture the serenity I felt, and the leaves that were still on the trees. We’d had some mild weather so the morning glories were still blooming quite nicely.
You would think this was a summer photo, wouldn’t you?
The textures I used for the morning glory shots are available as a free download here:

They are so pretty.
I hope that things are all right in your world.
And if they’re not, I hope that they begin to get better soon.
