Words of Wisdom

To Believe Poet Unknown      To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning.  It is to trust that miracles happen,  and dreams really do come true. To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,  To know the wonder of a stardust sky  and the wisdom of the man in the moon. To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,  The innocence of a child’s eyes and the beauty of an aging hand, for it is through their teachings we learn to love. To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us.and begin again. When it is time to pick up the pieces To believe is to know we are not alone,  That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it. To believe is to know that wonderful surprises  are just waiting to happen,  And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.  If only we believe.

A Manifesto for life

Several times over the last few months, I have stumbled across manifesto’s on websites and blogs that I visit. I even have a couple printed out and stuck up in my kitchen to inspire me. I’ve thought about creating my own for a while, and I finally got around to it this last week. It’s now happily taking pride of place in my kitchen, so I see it every day and remember all those words to shape my life by.    I wanted to share it here with you all too (if you click on the picture, it will open up a larger size ready to be printed out) I thought hard about the words I wanted to live by… the things that mean the most to me… the things that sum me up. Some days I forget my truth, so this is here to remind me, for me to see when I’m not standing strong and need a gentle hand to guide me back onto my path.Namaste

Living Life Your Way…. Interview with Darrah Parker

I’ve been working hard the last few months at overcoming my fears and following my dreams. So I’m running a series of interview with inspiring people to see what part fear has played in their life and how they’ve overcome it to live life their way… This weeks interview is with Darrah Parker Hi Darrah, tell us a little about yourself and your family. Hi Polly! I’m Darrah. I’m a “slice of life” photographer, in love with photographing families, children, and portraits and passionate about finding the beauty in everyday life. I love shoe shopping, soy chai lattes, and hanging out on the couch with my hubby, watching Mad Men. I live in beautiful Seattle and have been married to my musician husband, Jason, for a year.  *Have you always been self employed? And if not how did you make the change? I’ve been self employed for almost a year. My transition to self employment seemed sudden to some people, but it was a slow and steady transition. I’ve always been a creative person. I studied theatre in college, received a master’s degree in Theatre Education, taught acting and improv for a while, and dabbled in visual arts on and off…
