Winging It ...


“Be inspired by your journeys traveled, and the ones yet to come.”

The Art Of The Swan ...


“Until you spread your wings, you will have no idea how far you can fly.”
              ~ Napolean Bonaparte
                     ~ 1769-1821 
A beautiful mute swan artfully flashes its wingspan on Lake Muhlenberg in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured on a late August evening at Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

I Hope You Dance ...




“I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it's worth makin’
Don’t let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance …”
