chiv "Solitary"; Alone time is great for self-reflection and focus. I used to crave this solitude all the time and needed it. Now with a growing family, I have to find quiet time in between tea parties and talking politics. The difference now is that alone doesn't have to mean lonely anymore. :-) 1mon

chiv "Hatchet Man"; It's interesting to observe someone's conduct and attempt to pinpoint their motives. When we're young, we imagine that every slight is against us. We take things personally. But getting older and wiser means recognizing the bigger picture. I was introduced to the term "hatchet man" by a colleague and that particular man's motive was to break down a rival from the inside so it could be made an acquisition. Beware the hatchet man... 5mon

chiv "Magic Hour"; In the late afternoon on Sunday, an interesting weather anomaly I've never seen before took place: a sun flurry. It is what it sounds like and is amazing to watch. It's my first video upload and it'll be nice to utilize it in the future. Any tips on apps? #fall #autumn #snowflurry #autumnleaves #snow 7mon

chiv "We Are All Small"; Seeing my little one against the backdrop of a vast ocean reminds me I'm a speck of dust. Neil DeGrasse Tyson articulates it best in Cosmos that our kinship to each living thing can be a "soaring spiritual experience". Feeling small means knowing we're part of a vast array of extraordinary intergalactic life, large and, like every human being, small. 9mon

chiv Happy New Year! I've been in a rut lately and focused on getting out. I need this new start to become a better version of myself. It starts mentally with more reading, physically with purposeful movement and psychologically by searching myself for answers. I'm ready for a new year. New blog post as well. :-) 1y

chiv "The Island"; I wasn't expecting to get shots since I've been working a lot and short on inspiration. But in the words of Outkast: "Get up, get out and get something." It's the only way. 2y

chiv "In the Red"; The best thing about fall is the explosion of colors evident from every wooded area. While the leaves have already fallen from the trees you'll see in this short series, it's the shrubs below delivering the color splash. #red #trees #autumn 2y

chiv "It Was An Accident, I Swear..."; Long time no see. My husband's DIY auto repair gave me a unique photo opportunity I couldn't pass up. This and three stitches are the souvenirs. 2y

chiv "Found It"; The irony is that I am in a discovery series of my own, exploring ideas on subjects in politics, music, religion and environmentalism. As easily as my daughter found what she was looking for, I'm still on a quest. A bit slow to the conclusion, but here it is. Hope you enjoyed. :-) 2y

chiv "Undiscovered Country"; Quite a long hiatus, huh? I've been at work in life and on my blog on more cerebral and less photographic matters. Winter has been long and frigid, but yesterday the family and I got a respite from the cold. Here begins the Discovery Series. 2y

chiv "Six Feet Under"; The question of where we of when we die has always been touted as a great mystery. Is there an afterlife? Is there judgement? I say no. There's this life and nothing ahead. The fact that to go six feet under is our fate is more than enough motivation for me to take advantage of life while I have it. 3y

chiv "Freestyle"; This is a snippet from the band's freestyle melody on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's Heist Tour. It would make an excellent track one day. 3y

chiv "Banded"; My hair is finally long enough for a headband and I haven't worn one on my natural hair in almost ten years. As a newly growing natural, I'm excited about what I'll be able to do with my hair in the next stages as I inch along. The coils are coming out! 3y
