Breaking my heart

There is a wonderful blog I stop by often. It belongs to Jefra Linn. Her photography amazes me. Almost every image just takes my breath away. Love love love her stuff.
Right now she has a post up about another photographer (Sheye Rosemeyer) who just recently lost her three year old daughter, Ava, in a tragic accident. At Ava's funeral Sheye Rosemeyer asked that everyone who was not able to make it, please release 3 pink balloons in memory of Ava. One for each year she was alive. There has been a Flickr set up to post them all on.
I did not know Ava, and I do not know Sheye Rosemeyer, but I am a mom. I do have a daughter, and I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to lose her. The sympathy I feel for her can't begin to be put into words. Humans really just don't have the words to express sorrow for the loss of a child, and even if we did the words would be so small compared to what she must be feeling.
What I can do is tell my daughter that not long ago a beautiful angel, Ava, came down from heaven. She spent 3 years being a super princess, having a wonderful time with her family, and being loved. Then she was called home. So now we are going to release 3 pink balloons to tell her thank you for making the world a better and more beautiful place.
I will post my photos this weekend.

Personal Creative Manifesto

This is mine......

Allow myself to be exactly who I am
Give up control of the process
Don't just embrace imperfections - Love them
Be inspired by the ordinary
See things
Let the emotion lead me
Break free
Guide her
Photograph it ALL!

This is from the wonderful Ali Edwards - AEZine. Such a great newsletter.
