I’ve found another Word Press Photography challenge! Joining my pals Jeff Sinon and Mariah of Great Follies, I am going to see if Photography 101 helps me to get better at picture taking. The first assignment is ‘Home’.
I have was born on the East Coast (Salem, MA) and lived on the West Coast for 15 years, but the Midwest is where I’ve spent most of my life. I raised 4 kids here and brought myself through elementary school and mothering years by staying connected to woodlands and prairie. I photograph the land quite a bit. But home is movable. I love to travel and feel at home in lots of places. Where my heart is vulnerable and needs sheltering, centers around the table.
When I share a meal, I am inviting you into my deepest home. I am offering care and sustenance, as I need to be cared for and sustained. The people who eat at my table are family, whether by blood or by honor. We create Home together in mutual covenant. It is a sacred space.
