The Color Orchid 


Instead of defining my life by my disability and chronic illnesses, I choose to live in Gratitude. This simple choice alters my perspective on everything, including time. Living in the moment is a natural response to appreciation, and being creative results in fully experiencing any moment. One avenue for such mindfulness is photography, which requires stillness, attention, aesthetics, imagination, respect and regard for the subject. This lens allows my daily joy to blossom, even though my physical restrictions could easily have been allowed to constrict it.
