self portrait challenge – black & white

Feb 14, 2007 | Life in Progress

still beaming from the weekend. i didn’t expect to come home and lose sleep thinking about it, replaying in my mind all the highlights, moments, and conversations. there wasn’t enough time. and i want to do it all over again.

i am learning that life isn’t found in the black or the white. it’s found in the questions, in the journey for the answers, and in the truth telling. i like it like that.

more self portraits here.

Sending much love,

    This is a beautiful photo of you…but I think it would be difficult for any photo of you smiling to be a bad one. Your smile glows, and I’m so glad I got to experience it all weekend. I want to do it all over again too.

    Oh Kelly I am just catching up on your posts and it all sounds wonderful.

    I am not surprised that you were success – the rest of the world is just discovering what your bloggy friends have known for some time.
