Here is a zoomed out version of my post from last night. I added some wind chop texture into the deeper water and trailing sea foam. I also added some more detailing to the base. Leading up to where the outbound wave crashes into the large wave from the deeper ocean storm.
I sat alone, staring at the most vivid depiction of destruction and new life, and wrote this: ⠀ .⠀ "The destruction is beyond words. But despite the destruction, regardless of all obstacles, there is new life. No matter how desolate, no matter the extent of the damage done, new life persists. And suddenly desolation takes on a unique beauty, appreciated by those who know what it means to fight with every fiber in their being to not just survive, but to flourish and become part of what makes the world beautiful."⠀ ⠀ I'm thinking that when I wrote that I was talking about more than just the plants that are still growing despite the volcanic eruption, being that I wrote this right around the two year anniversary of saying goodbye to my daughter. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ How do you become part of what makes this world beautiful?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #pacificnorthwest #pacificnw #herpnwlife #hiketoheal #wildernesstherapy #explorewashington #girlswhohike #womenwhohike #alpinebabes #pnwhikes #pnwwonderland #pnwoutdoorwomen #mountainvibes #mountainsarecalling #washingtonstate #upperleft #pnwbabes #nwisbest #livetoexplore #sheadventures #washingtonhikersandclimbers #hikerlife #adventureculture #pnwexplorations #outdoorwomen
A walk in the country today lead me to this quiet place to pause and reflect. I thought I'd share the peace of this location with you. Nothing more . . . enjoy. #HAROLD 'shots #serenity #scenic #mynorthwest #pacificnw #pnw #landscape #river #verdant

When Lost in the Forest Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here. And you must treat it as a powerful stranger; Must ask permission to know it and be known. The forest breathes. Listen. It answers. I have made this place around you, And if you leave it You may come back again Saying... “Here” No two trees are the same to raven No two branches are the same to wren. If what a tree or branch Does is lost on you, Then you are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows where you are. You must let it find you. -David Wagner #UpperleftUSA #pnwmoods #pnwwonderlust #pnwonderland #olympicnationalpark #olympicnationalforest #staircaserapidstrail #skokomishriver #washingtontrails #washingtoncamping #moodygrams #ig_color #moodyports #greatnorthcollective #pnwbabes #herpnwlife #pnwdiscovered #thegreatnorthwest #northwestisbest #pnwtildeath #explorepnw #wanderwashington #upperleftUSA #pacificnw #washingtonstate #yonderwashington #pacificnorthwest #photooftheday #picoftheday #landscapephotogrophy

“The climb might be tough and challenging but the view is worth it. There is a purpose for that pain. You just can’t see it right away”~ Victoria Arlen ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2019 begins with a bang! Plenty of exciting opportunities fill with abundant possibilities. I can’t wait to see how this year turns out!
Our peninsula is full of treasures, big and small 🍄
Cold dark gray, Feeling old, Emerald green, sharp teeth, hard bite, Swallow me into the sea, Chaos, tumbling, rolling, Complete loose of control, Letting go, Maybe the only way to close. - Stephen Gehring

—————————————————————— The Great Pacific Northwest. The other corner of the United States where things are moody, gloomy, and really groovy 🤙🏼. Picture here was shot at waterfall located at the border of WA/OR. Absolutely stunning location. I love the vibrant green mosses that rest on the fallen trees as they thrive from the constant moisture in the air. Even more unique is the pattern the waterfall creates as it sprawls across the huge rock formation creating these little streams at the end. ——————————————————————
It is an illusion that photographs are made with the camera, they are made with the eye, heart and soul.
Today is #NationalHatDay ! Where is the coolest place you’ve taken your #CDOriginals hat?
Ain’t no mountain high enough.
Generally speaking for us, January is a time of regrouping. It’s a hard month for a lot of reasons (cold, long and dark), but we’re trying to use it as a time to reflect, pray, and plan. And book. There are so many shows I’m working on for 2019. Some of my best and biggest shows yet. And I’m releasing even more music this year. Reflecting on those things right now. Being grateful. And thinking back to the fall when this picture was taken on top of Badger Mountain. ☀️

In my experience it seems like at the root of everything, for all of us, there's some sort of trauma, some sort of addiction, some sort of life that is a part of our story. So we invite everyone to come to lunch with us at the park for Filling Empty Bellies to come and just get to know people that are just like you in so many ways. None of our stories are exactly the same but our needs are, our desires our. My dad ran the Cannon Beach Christian Conference, I grew up conservative and I no longer am part of the church but I do still identity as a Christian. I'm sure growing up hearing about Jesus had some impact on me and my desire to help people that are hurting. (Erin Carlsen 5/5 Erin runs Filling Empty Bellies, serving lunch to those in need at People's Park, in addition to teaching Lives in Transition classes, and Sociology classes at Clatsop Community College, and is a dance instructor at Encore Dance Studio. She's also the mother of two boys.)

I feel weird when I film my yoga practice. Most of what you’ll see in my videos isn’t my favorite style of yoga to practice. This ledge was pretty and the sunset was pretty but after I was done my real yoga was walking to the end of the dock unrolling my mat, not having my phone, doing some really not-so-fancy poses and laying in a 20 minute savasana feeling the wind on my skin & listening to the crash of the waves. 🌕🌖🌓🌒🌑🌘🌗🌔 #practicepractice #loveandalliscoming

My case workers would come to Aloha HS every week to meet with me I was always fearful that the friends I’d spent years making would find out that I was placed into foster care and think of me differently. I’d walk into the office and they’d know that I wanted the office in the far back away from any students. I also remember when my friend’s mom told her she couldn’t hang out with me anymore because I was “a foster kid”. It was painful, unfair, and gave me more reason to believe I was and always would be unwanted and unloved just like I was told would be the case for me on a daily basis. The flashing red lights of a firetruck and police car signaled my freedom from a life of abuse but it took years for my life as an orphaned victim to truly end because of the years of trauma that I was still processing. I went through many case workers, each coming and going without warning. I finally connected with an ILP worker and suddenly lost her to a heart attack the day I started college. Foster care looked like a court room, a restraining order, medical exams, counseling, many meetings, confusion, pain, grief, finally realizing that my abuse was over, freedom to attend church, being raised by a community, provision for my needs, graduating college and beating the odds, and most of all, being taken out of death and placed on a path of life. I aged out a few years ago and despite the reality that it can be an ugly mess for so many, I saw + experienced foster care as a saving grace. @dreammakersproject is an incredible program whose heart is to grant wishes for those who have aged out of foster care and an anonymous donor made my wish for a new laptop come true! I’m so grateful + touched by a stranger’s kindness! Because of foster care, I was free to pursue the One who had kept me safe, promised me freedom, and reached into the darkest place to set me free. Because of foster care, I now have a forever family that has adopted me and given me their last names. I’m not an orphan. I’m not abandoned. I’m never alone. I belong. I have a forever seat at a table. I am loved. He is + He has given me all that I’ve ever needed + more! #tacomawa #fostercare #spiritofadoption

Feeling refreshed and inspired after a beautiful weekend in the Pacific Northwest - ready to conquer this week! But we’ll still be dreaming about the weekend.
Inhale, exhale. Soak up as much vitamin d as possible.
It was all just a dream.
