Few Words

http://solacearts.com

One photo a week of our family throughout the year. 18/52

few words, many thoughts
rollercoaster of calm and chaos
ordinary tasks bound to thoughtful introspection
never pausing with the moving on to something new
dishes washed, dishes dried
toys in bins
pride laid down for humble joys
again and again
full but empty
a cycle familiar but still uncomfortable
the giving up to gain what waits beyond my vision

aches hang bare and lonely
longing for heaven
but living something close
living yes the best i can
giving more
focused attention
moments that can never be replaced

spring to follow hard
live a journey traveled less
a mess with heart and soul
the art of doing love
open-handed
