"She gets goosebumps from tiny, perfect things.  Seeing the stars.  Fruit trees in bloom.  The scent of dinner from a neighbors house, a phone call at the right time, a bar of exotic chocolate.  She keeps a list in her wallet of the gorgeous parts of the everyday:  maple leaves, new perfume, slow-cooked
tomato sauce. 
 She adds to it all the time. 
 She is rich with wonder.
She lies awake and listens to what her heart has to say, 
hears it declare that this is the beginning of her own new year."
Excerpt from "I am her"

"Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, 
and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart."

“Your heart influences your art.” 
Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

Two years ago last May, I  purchased my first full-frame  camera, a used Canon 5D Mark II.  A few months after that I bought my first Canon L series lens, a 24-105mm. It's the only lens I own that I bought new.  I still use the same gear today.  I was so excited about the camera but it took a awhile to collect the funds. In the meantime, I read the entire David Busch manual on the camera before I ever even touched it.
