Photography has always been an important way for me to see the world, a way to record and celebrate, a way to make sense of things. In recent years, I’ve become keenly aware of when and why I pick up my camera. I’ve become keenly aware that photography, for me, is a form of meditation.
Much of life moves quickly, and to be sure, there are things with which I need to keep pace. But, when possible, I try to slow down. I allow moments to pause, moments to notice, moments to be.
Over the years, my camera and my writing have become tools of choice. Tools that enable me to work creatively, tools that help me express some of what I see, some of what I feel, some of who I am. They are tools that help me savor the daily goings on.
This work of noticing – and celebrating that creatively – is something I explore in my e-course, 28 Moments. In this course, I guide participants through a gentle exploration of their daily lives. Working with photography and writing prompts, the four weeks are a wonderful chance to slow down a bit and look at things in a new light. And the community aspect of this course, while optional, is really wonderful; the sharing of photographs and writing – the sharing of each other’s lives – amazes me every time.
Today I’m happy, on behalf of ViewFinders, to offer a giveaway for two spots in my upcoming run of 28 Moments (July 11 – August 7). You can read full details about the class by clicking here.

Thanks to all of you who shared in the comments. And I’d like to remind you that, if you didn’t win a spot, I’ve got a special registration process for this summer run…I’m offering a pay-what-you-will this summer (yep, whatever you can manage). Hope to see you there…
