..... life is all about perspective!!!! And everyone's perspective is different!!!! That is what I love about photography... It is a reflection of the inner ME!!!! I capture what I see the way that I see it.... and I love how others view the same thing so differently!!!

peace lies not in the external world...  it lies within one's own soul.............

This week mine and Nicole's word is peace....  WOW!!!  I LOVE this word!!!!  It is probably my favorite word....  and something that I try to inject into everything that I do...  I really just want PEACE in every aspect of my life....  whether it be a conversation, interaction or a relationship....  THIS is what I'm after....  PEACE!!!!  Maybe this is why I really have such a hard time with folks who are obsessed with creating DRAMA!!!  There is NO peace in drama....  which means there is NO place for someone else's drama in my life!!!!  I actually shot this photo for my Picture Inspiration prompt for this week....  the prompt was "circle of life"....  and as I looked at it I realized how perfect it was for my interpretation of the word peace too.....  It is a shot full of symbolism....  and all the things that are most important in my life!!!   The foundation of my photo....  which is also the foundation of my life....  is my bible.....  the Word of the Peace Speaker.....  it's where my morals and values come from....  it is what makes me who I am!!  Then there is my wedding band....    it is sacred to me....  ALL things in my life come back to THIS circle..... this circle holds my heart (seriously....  how AMAZING is it that the shadow of my wedding ring forms a heart!!!).... it gives my life meaning and perspective... it makes me whole........  and then as I looked just a little closer at my shot I noticed that the binding of my bible and the shadows formed a peace sign inside of my wedding ring!!!  AWESOME!!!!!  yep.....  THIS is where I find my peace!!!!  And for all of these things, I am grateful beyond measure.....  be sure to head over and check out Nicole's shot for this week too!!!
