I’m in a very transitioning state in my life right now. My free spirited soul has told me it is ready for the next step. Good thing it happens to be 2013. A new year means a new adventure right?

My dear friend Emerald happens to be experiencing an adventure of her own as well. She just recently packed her bags and moved from her hometown of Helena, MT to one of my favorite places, Oak Harbor, WA ( You can see my adventure to Oak Harbor here.)

These photos were taken at her grandparent’s house this past summer where she was living in the upstairs apartment. In fact it’s the same house her grandmother Lois grew up in, so it has a very special place in her heart.

Congratulations Emerald on your new adventure. I can’t wait to come visit.













Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone
suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You’re covered with thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign
that you have died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.
