without blinding. without exposing.

The light of the 6 o'clock hour in Jackson is just gorgeous.  I stepped outside and walked a few steps before actually saying, "This is gorgeous." It is bright without blinding.  Light without exposing.  It is so still.  So right. And cold.

Leaving Jackson with such… Continue reading a place for you.

[wow] happy.

Found this... ...this morning, in my favorite e-magazine: Picame. And it made me happy... because I am happy.  !!  [whoa.] Having my mom here is a great gage to how life is going.  I find myself getting excited about showing off every aspect of my life here in Jackson. This is where I work. These… Continue reading [wow] happy.
