This blog began long ago as a journey to understand myself… to celebrate and remember these little wonders. I search to find and be defined by my clarity.
Within the first few months of its birth, this blog morphed into a platform through which I could share and remember my journey with Team In Training through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It marked my successes and milestones. It chronicled injuries and frustrations. I shared my progress with training for the triathlon as well as my fundraising. I shared others’ stories and advocated awareness, service, and action (be it through research, donation, or other means).
When my Team In Training experience came to an end, the blog went on hiatus. I didn’t know what to write about anymore. There are occasional entries, but they became fewer and farther in between. I have tried to continue to advocate here on my blog. I am passionate about many causes and sometimes that shows up here. I do not advocate with words constantly, but I pray that my words and actions serve as evidence of the life I try to lead. As St. Francis said, “Preach the gospel always, if necessary use words.”
Most recently, this blog has morphed into a photo blog. I have always loved photography and truly feel inspired behind the lens. Through photography, I’m constantly growing and learning. I love sharing my daily journey and truly believe that a picture is worth a thousand words. As such, my words may be more scarce. Often, “I quote others in order to better express myself” (de Montaigne).
