isabel ~ as a personal note to you, i have loved this session more than most because of what you allowed me to capture. a vulnerable heart. an emotional battle. a need for rest from some issues of college life. a strength that is not your own but divinely set in your mind regardless of what you have to go ‘home’ to. through out this i found a few quotes suited to you, to this moment ~ tears in the beginning, a twinkle in your eye in the middle, contemplation and serenity in the end. as i found in a quote from the 16th century, sir francis bacon (gotta love the name) penned in, of beauty, “there is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion”. meaning it is the sum of it all |you, the difficulty of your moment, your fatigue from school, work, and your most beastly roommates| all of this is deepening you, therefore adding layers of unpredictabled beauty to what already existed. a little fyi to the english major… poe directly quoted this too. thank you for taking the journey to a sweet spot on this earth to be with us for a few days. and without apology, God is the beginning and God is the end. within that infinite bracket is His creative, pursuing, immeasurable compassion and loving kindness. i love you dear daughter.
