this post will be a little different… weeks before our vacation to the east coast my husband brought me an article from an airline magazine (he spends a lot of time in the ‘air’ – between southwest and american). the article featured photographer, david orias. on his own study, he has come to capture light rising and setting on the crests of the waves. i am a film lover and though i’ve become knowledgeable in digital, to me, nothing compares. but david said that this ‘light’ is something film cannot do. that intrigued. i’ve never seen anything like it. so, i gave it a shot at sunrise on what became a very stormy day. i can see how a calmer, slower sea would be better – maybe. and certainly more skill. but that will come. i used my husband’s shoulder as my tripod (why did i forget to lug that down with us?? thank you love!).

sunday, as our pastor was praying, just praying about God’s grace, i caught something. i do not remember all of that prayer, but i do remember this because i wrote it down… he said maybe we would understand better “if grace were an ocean…” (jim hennesy).┬áit seems true. so here is my first attempt of light on waves and posting of the visual (which i so often need) – GRACE.
