I take photos...

I take photos of love...
I document a couples connection and without fail, pieces of me are left within the pixels.
I have always said if you look back at my photographs you can see where I was in life.
I can pin point the emotions attached to each session, the music I played and where my heart hid. I have been told I am passionate about being passionate and I wouldn't have it any other way. In moments I have tripped, but I know what I want in life. You never know what kind of weight those around you are bearing, we don't know what it feels like.  Although I thrive off expression I am a fairly logical creature but, only when I need to be. Life is much more intoxicating with your heart leading the way. Its no secret I am not at my highest point or brightest spot. I worked, had faith and thought I finally found the purpose for it all. Apparently, its just another stepping stone to the unknown. At times, it is a heart wrenching thing to wrap my mind around. I might not believe in things like I used to but, I do believe in tender mercies 
"When words cannot provide the solace we need or express the joy we feel, when it is simply futile to attempt to explain that which is unexplainable, when logic and reason cannot yield adequate understanding about the injustices and inequities of life, when mortal experience and evaluation are insufficient to produce a desired outcome, and when it seems that perhaps we are so totally alone, truly we are blessed by the tender mercies of the Lord"
Elder David  A. Bednar

I'm a photographer in Hawaii and a fellow member of the church and I've watched your blog for some time. I thought you had found everything anyone could ever want in life. I'm sorry for whatever happened. I'm truly sorry. Thank you for posting Elder Bednar's words. I needed that today too. My relationships throughout my life have been like a noose around my neck, strangling the life out of me. I seem to be cursed. Like you, I wait to see what tender mercies the Lord has to get me through my difficulties.

Brook I'm one of your many followers who have never met you. But I belie in you. Many days you are the high point on my Google Reader. Thank you for sharing your passion. I am so sorry for whatever you are going through, but grateful that we share a testimony of tender mercies from the Lord. You will get through this and shine even more beautifully for it.
