The Challenge....

Making the Best of the Worst


Beauty only lies in the eyes of the beholder, we seek beauty to be all around us, to capture us, to inspire us, to make us whole. Although, it is so difficult to live in that space. To keep that love all people, love all things in place. To stay inspired, to stay alive, is it not where we are now? In a moment of survival, flight or fight, strongest wins. When I do catch a glimpse of the news or social media, about how the world is in such fear, my heart goes out to these people. As someone who has dealt with trauma for a very long time, I understand, this is our daily lives, being filled with uncertainty, afraid to do this or that, just wanting to cuddle up in a ball and sleep. Many of my traumatized friends have said, “the best part of this whole thing… social distancing.” I have to agree, except for the rare occasion that some weirdo walks right beside me and I want to scream. It is hard being out, especially when people are not taking this whole thing seriously. This is the most serious thing I have seen in my whole life. Granted, when the person is in their 20s, I understand their naivety, their “I’m going to live forever” mind set… We have all been there, but when someone who is much older than me walks by me so close, I cannot help but wonder if they are on a suicide mission, a murder mission… See fear, it is a horrible thing, it makes us think the worst of our fellow humans, but then life teaches us this too.

Yes, I have been stuck in the house all day, it is cold and wet outside and I do not want to get out on a day like today. So I will work on more pictures of Chattanooga. Take a glance if you like.
