Light, for me, is an expression of gratitude and hope. It is not only symbolic of my thoughts this year, but also of the inner landscape I wish to cultivate always. The life captured within these images represents gratitude for all the challenges I have weathered and the growth that has resulted. The sunlight represents hope, that thing which is ever constant and makes all evolution endlessly possible.
