"You are the reason I believe in love..."
(I do swear that I'll always be there. I'd give anything and everything and I will always care. Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow, for better for worse, I will love you with every beat of my heart.)
I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you
As he sits in front of me, I see how blessed I am... it is incredible. And I am not sure how many times I have told him that I love him today, but I know he feels it; it shines within all I do.
This marriage is one of the most beautiful experiences that I have ever endured, and there is so much more to come. He told me the other day that no one has ever loved him as I do, but I can easily say the same thing back to him... (I did not, but I understood what he meant, because no one on earth has ever moved me, loved me or made me feel complete, as he does).
He says he has never loved anyone as much as he does me. One look into his eyes and I believe. And I have never loved anyone as much either (or have trusted)--he is my heart, my best friend, confidant, twin soul, lover and my beautiful husband.
He is finally home, and I am his to hold each and every night, until the end of time.
Last night we went for a long walk...he held his arm out for me to place my arm into, and then his hand held mine warmly, it was a closeness we two always seem to share. As we walked we spoke of many different things, admired some homes decorated for Christmas, (discussed others) and took in the scents of fireplaces as they warmed families after a long Thanksgiving celebration.
We came home, watched "August Rush" (a beautiful movie with magical music and feeling), cuddled and went to sleep.
I hope you all enjoyed your holiday.

... after being trampled in Long Island.
A Wal-Mart worker died after being trampled when hundreds of shoppers smashed through the doors of a Long Island store Friday morning, police and witnesses said.
The 34-year-old employee, a temporary maintenance worker, tried to hold back the unruly crowds just after the Valley Stream store opened at 5 a.m.
Witnesses said the surging throngs of shoppers knocked the man down. He fell and was stepped on. As he gasped for air, shoppers ran over and around him.
CAUGHT ON CAMERA: WAL-MART CROWD MOMENTS BEFORE DEADLY STAMPEDE
"He was bum-rushed by 200 people," said Jimmy Overby, 43, a co-worker. "They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too...I literally had to fight people off my back."
The unidentified victim was rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:03 a.m., police said.
The cause of death wasn't immediately available pending results of an autopsy.
A 28-year-old pregnant woman was knocked to the floor during the mad rush. She was hospitalized for observation, police said. Early witness accounts that the woman suffered a miscarriage were unfounded, police said.
Three other shoppers suffered minor injuries, cops said.
Wal-Mart spokesman Dave Tovar called the incident a "tragic situation."
"The safety and security of our customers and associates is our top priority," Tovar said.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families at this difficult time."
Before police shut down the store, eager shoppers streamed past emergency crews as they worked furiously to save the store clerk's life.
"They were working on him, but you could see he was dead, said Halcyon Alexander, 29. "People were still coming through."
Only a few stopped.
-NY Daily News
I cannot even believe this... I mean, these are mostly women of all ages, how can they be so brutal? How can anyone do such a horrible thing just to get a sale item in a store? Is this what Christmas has come to? I hardly think men would do such an act in any store, over any sale item, at any time. Sad indeed.
My heartfelt condolences to that man's family, I am sure their Christmas will never be the same.

A moment to relax before Stefan and I begin our cooking for tonight, and for the holiday. He will prepare homemade pies, the main course and some other things. I will do other preparations. He and I went shopping this evening for Thanksgiving, and it was wonderful deciding together what to cook, beginning new traditions and simply being out in this wonderful season with him. We make a great team.
And I must say, being married to, not only a warm man, but someone who has been my best friend during so much through-out the years, makes our bond even greater. I have no doubts our holidays this year will be new and exciting.
... I have no doubts that Stefan is "the one".
May you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

When I shot this image I was beside the Golden Gate Bridge. As always, there was a tour taking place, (even during the rain). As I walked past, I came across a Chinese family listening attentively to the man giving the tour. I saw this young girl sheltering little brother from the weather--she had her arm around him as she held an umbrella above them both. It was a sweet display of affection, and proved to my heart once again, even children sacrifice in order to protect and warm others.
... she had been getting somewhat wet, but chose not to worry as long as he was protected. I took the image, smiled to myself and walked down by the water to bask in the beauty of the sea, taking with me, thoughts of my own family and how much I adore them.

One of my favorite places to be. When I took that image it was so foggy out--the surfers were enjoying the day as much as, everyone else that had the pleasure to be there. And as you know, I love the sea with all my heart...it is a part of me.

(An image I shot during a foggy afternoon.)
Last night, Stefan and I went for a long walk...it was very nice. It had rained, so the streets glistened beneath the street lights. One thing I have always loved is the scent of rain...walking hand in hand made it even more beautiful.
I have been busy for the most part trying to schedule models for photo shoots, working, working on photographs, and everything in-between. Stefan has been busy, as well, but made a wonderful Indian dinner last night that was absolutely delicious. (He also made some Japanese dinners a few times, Shrimp Bisque, and what is my new favorite, seafood gumbo. Being Cajun, it was spicy, with crab, shrimp and so much more...it was one of the best dinners I have ever had.)
Anyway, it is early here and very foggy. I almost want to get my camera and go get a few photographs, but I am having coffee and trying to wake some still. :) I must say, I adore waking to such a sweet face each morning,... I am blessed.

I would actually hold all I have ever desired. Actually, I hold so much more--a completeness only he can bring. I can be moody, bratty, happy, sad, kind and warmhearted,...
... but I could never be more beautiful than I am when he looks into my eyes.
And even though I make many mistakes and have so much to learn, I know I will continue to grow into something even more beautiful; the one who he kisses goodnight at an older age. I am blessed.

Stefan and Sara are so adorable; they are arranging all my birthday gifts so sweetly. I cannot help but smile as our home fills with the scents of dinner, Boston Creme, and love. :) Well, I better get back to those two! See ya later!

What is more difficult: looking into someones eyes when telling how you feel, or looking into someones eyes when they tell you how they feel?
2. Think of the last time you were angry.
Why were you angry?
I was being a brat
3. You will die in three minutes.
Oh I see, I will take a Baily's please ;)
If you could do anything OR wish anything, what would it be?
Never lose my husband's love for me
5. You can have one of the following two things: trust or love.
You cannot have one without the other.
6. You are walking to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss told you if you are late one more time you're fired.
Do you save the dog?
I probably left early, so yes, I save the pup. ;)
Would you or have you ever blackmailed someone?
8. Think of the last person who you know that died. You have the chance to give them 1 hour of life back, but you have to give one year of your life.
Do you do it?
Are you the kind of friend that you would want to have as a friend?
I hope so, but I am bad at keeping in touch, even though I think of them all often.
No. Sex = Sex. But, sex and love=making love, and that is beautiful.
Are you old fashioned?
Would you marry someone if they were unable to have sex?
What would be harder for you, to tell someone you love them or that you do not love them back?
To tell them I love them
What do you think would be the hardest thing for you to give up?
It has been my love for chocolate.
Romantic love, when was the last time you told someone you loved them?
This morning when I woke to my husband sitting beside me singing the "Happy Birthday" song and smiling so sweetly.
If you had to go back in time and change one thing, if you HAD to, even if you have "no regrets" what would you change?
Not falling in love with Stefan when I was 18--I would not have had to endure anything bad,... although, it all has been life experiences. (I would wish the same for him.)
17. Imagine. It is a dark night, you are alone, it is raining outside, you hear someone walking around outside your window. WHO do you wish was there with you?
Stefan, because he is superninjabadass ;)
Would you give a homeless person CPR if they were dying?
Of course! Being homeless does not make you less of a person.
19. You are holding onto your grandmother's dying hand and the hand of a newborn that you do not know as they hang over the edge of a cliff.
You have to let one go to save the other which one would it be?
When and how was the last time you told someone how you REALLY feel?
Everyday. I always say what is in my heart, in anyway I can.

Sitting across from him as we both multitask on our computers, I begin to daydream. He leans in to kiss me sweetly and the scent of his heated breath moves through me like the tide to shore--I soak it in.

Today will be a different sort of post; I will not be adding my own images or words, but those of my husband, Stefan.
Today he wrote me 2 beautiful messages as he sat across from me. I, of course, had not idea he was writing me such wonderful and warm words--(I was caught up in other activities and such). He then asked me to go have a look at Shuttermojo, and I did. There, I found these 2 photographs he had taken during a walk we two went on last week, placed sweetly with these words:
"Alone in the fields of autumn, standing strong against the breath of November, waiting, holding, waiting.
Rising high above the ground, brilliant and bold against the sky, see the beauty, see strength, see frailty.
Lips pursed, exhaled wind blows, carries new life in another season, another place...
You breathed upon me and brought new life, Cher. I will love you for all seasons unto the end of the end.
"Season's swift change approaches the mountains, I stand at the window with the knowledge of how our season has changed as well. The freshness is as that of the falling snow now gathering upon a ledge.
Once alone in this world I wandered lost without knowing. Like a single leaf upon the fresh fallen snow, I took on the chill, awaiting season's change. The spring would have left me forgotten as new life begins.
You found me there alone in the cold, brushed away the drift, held me close to your bosom and brought me warmth. You took me home and pressed me between the pages of your life, preserving my soul.
I adore you, Cher and I am happy you chose me to love and to hold.
All I am...
I smiled and went over to him to hold him close and thank him. The scent of his warm neck against my cheek gave me butterflies. I breathed in deeply for a moment to cherish all that he is and gently kissed him. I so love being in his arms, and am fortunate he chose this lil' brat to be his wife! ;)
I love you, Stefan. I love you with all my heart and would marry you 1000 times over again. Grazie, amore mio.

I shot this image at Gouldsboro State Park in autumn. One thing that I always seem to think of is that bear eat out of the park's garbage cans a lot,... so they warn to keep lids closed. Luckily, I have not ever ran across one.
I did however, see a baby bear cross in front of my car one afternoon--I had stopped to shoot a photograph of it as it went up a hill, but thought its mother must be close by and how protective she must be. With that thought, I decided to get back in my car. ;)

I know of fidelity through poetry or novel—the whites
of winter, a future that soothed, a man that I would
grow to adore even more.
And within each moment, my heart flew. Regardless of
the fear that clung to our palms, we stepped through
book-pressed flowers, hand in hand, caught numerous
butterflies that swam effortlessly inside.
Glancing back, I sing a deeper hymn in the open seas
of amore—a song of sediment, recall words on an August
night, limbs extended, chests fragile as doves against
the backdrop of forever, where the clouds trembled
translucent, counting seconds in anticipation.
And from October’s chill to May's bloom, we took on a
mouthful of dandelion—an atonement only we two shared.
Oh, we were invincible, sat firm on the crown of this
world, knowing even though we were apart at times,
we would always regain our footing in the everlasting
(Such a part of me, is you—a place where our lips
never quite disconnect, a refuge beside the foggy
And as ocean notes gather quietly, they will discover
us, two hearts like sand, drifting softly together.

This is an image I took last winter, (... at least I think it was last winter ;).

I (I know it is a bit gross) pulled of my socks to apply pressure to a wound in his abdomen, sat behind him, and gently pulled him to my chest. He kept trying to get up, so I whispered to him and told him how loved he was by his family. (I did not know what else to say.)

Before you interpret this, I must divulge to you
all that is clandestine: his voice, a garden
always it exists in neat rows, lexis in the lungful
of forget-me- nots, the intricate identifiers such as skin,
accent– flesh, inevitably imitate events that slowly
pull faces as I pass the mirror.
& I spend seasons sleepless on his face, in the silhouette
of his body long after he’s laid it down. I scatter flowers
in breath - a deeper blue in the cherry, where I draw
his chest to a pause, carry him to the scents, each
so delicately decorated in the softness of rivers that utter
devotion. But his mouth is heavy. Indeed, I am speaking
of the tongue, of the nether sea, the vortex
in its garrote - no exit, a void, a lilac snapped shut.
& I cannot deliver. I lift his snowy lids, release the colors
into the sky, where simplicity permeates the air, & his lips
part affectionate, wet. I kiss his throat to pursue a sole
riposte, feel a constriction that tugs my hand, pulls me
back as the night that hangs nervous in the thickets.

"For a moment, I will rest in the deep of your
throat—beautiful and low, pulling each breath
with fumbling fingers..."
(An older photograph of mine.)
(It is perhaps futile to speak of this to the ever-changing sky--one must hold his own in the weather.)
And I will sit here in the aftermath with a journal, describe the scent in this air—flowered, almost too much for the senses, November. My first thoughts are to find another segment of this shrunken field to lie language to dissertation. But my legs are unstable, (the body knows no other way).
I will remain here, as I recall the nights I rose from the garden through a window, passing with the moon on my back—open to trust, open and open. The nights my dress fell to the soft of a word, twisted in its excitement. Did I know then what was bound to fuse in my hand? Did I seek further than shoulder, run from poem to poem in madness? Or was something was in the way? I say, "No! I turn softly and utter, "Yes".
And I would gather petals in the rain, march around reciting autonomy from a Neruda masterpiece, lying myself into each line. And in some ways I grew cold, inaccessible in the derisive language of what clung to that dress in gaiety.
(My lips frozen on the veranda—I could not elude the photograph.)
So, of verse interdependency, a gratitude for losing sleep, I spit language like fever on the tongue. And with a dither of light, I no longer deliver necessity... I climb from the veranda with an empty journal, and signal fireflies in the empty field.

I shot this image of the Point Reyes in Inverness, Ca (just north of San Francisco). Portions of the John Carpenter film The Fog as well as, most of his film Village of the Damned were shot in and around Inverness.
Most everyone that visits Point Reyes National Seashore stops to see this abandoned boat.
I recall one day very well,...I walked up to it by myself and automatically felt its presence--a sort of sad or eerie feeling. It is funny, it began to spook me so much, I hurried away after talking 8 or so photographs. ;)

You know, (and I truly believe this) there comes a time in one's life when all else just fades completely, and you live in the "now". Some of you can understand this, some not so much, because you have to actually experience it first hand, to really feel this "Absolute".
Last night, my body went through one, no, THE most pleasant release ever possible--I never felt such tremble along with butterflies that swam when he gave true love endlessly,... effortlessly.
This man is my twin soul, my love of a lifetime. And all my life I have sought this sort of inner peace, but was not sure I would find it, or did not recognize exactly what it was.
In this time of my life everything surpasses the real and takes on a whole new meaning--you begin to see with eyes wide open, no more wasteful wishing. In this time of my life, I have finally found what I was looking for, the odd thing is (for lack of a better word)... it was right in front of me the entire time--he was right there. And he waited with patient eyes for the perfect time, when my heart would reopen and give unto him the love he desperatly so needed in return. And he knew all along (I say this, and mean everything) our souls belonged together.
I can recall a few years ago when he stated to me that we were indeed, twin souls. He stated that we belonged. I never quite knew the meaning of that until this year. (*Well, perhaps I knew, but was either frightened or not able to open myself.) Nonetheless, everything came to full circle and it is the best experience I have ever known.
So, I say again, there comes a time in one's life when all else just fades completely, and you live in the "now". This is our time, and I plan to live for each moment without hesitation,... loving him with all that I have, because he is the best thing to ever happen to me.
