Ode to The Sun.

positively.24 or, alternatively, Ode to The Sun.

It has been nine years since I discovered The Sun magazine while sitting newborn vigil with my dear friend Rebecca in her living room. It sat innocuously on the side table...I picked it up, soon after subscribed and have not stopped going back to it since.

Decidedly left but even more decidedly human...more a friend than a magazine. There are a few b&w photos, no ads, and then just writing. Non-fiction, fiction, poetry, Readers very much.

Reading it over the years I have frowned, belly laughed, raised an eyebrow, hit my head against the wall, heaved a happy sigh and like last night while reading a poem in the January issue by Alison Luterman called 'Because Even The Word Obstacle is an Obstacle' just openly wept.

In other words, I love The Sun.

Buy it.
Read it.
Love it, too.

up to the mountain(top)...

...this song is Patty Griffin's tribute to the great Martin Luther King as inspired by his very last speech.

Chills and tears and so much gratitude are spilling over into my day :)

And the speech itself...

and ever.


Riley and I decided to go to SFMOMA and check out their 75th anniversary exhibition today.

This is officially my very favorite photo that I have ever taken of the two of us.

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled.
The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let
the beautiful stuff out.

positive indeed.


Yesterday I was gifted with the opportunity to spend seven hours and capture over 1200 images within the heart of a developmentally disabled community of remarkable human beings.

It was not only one of the most positive days I will be lucky enough to have in my career but in the entirety of my life.

Of that, I am certain.
