University North Carolina, Wilmington. What an absolutely beautiful campus!! I enjoyed walking around here today, meeting some of the staff and chatting around. Its so true what they say about The Carolinas, everyone is super friendly, helpful & truly keeps the ‘southern hospitality’ alive.
Hoping a new path opens soon, as the one I’m on has been under construction for awhile 😉
Chris Lynch. An amazing mother. A strong woman. Beautiful. Courageous. Hopeful. Supportive. Giving. Loving. Role model. We will always have a bond, that not even death can take away.
Chris lost her son Jordan 8years ago to suicide. Standing by her side, watching her cry, the pain she endures, the moments she wants to break down, yet all the love and compassion she still has to offer. Jordan’s friends call her Momma Lynch. They bring their children over to meet someone who was always a positive influence as they grew up. Jordan’s father still, to this day, coaches the local track team where Jordan attended school.
Amazing people with more to offer, cheated of so many experiences, yet finding ways to still give back and be a part.
I love them as they are my own set of parents. Thank you. For everything you’ve done for not just me, but all whose lives you’ve touched. For raising two boys. For enduring so much pain, yet still loving and laughing. For allowing me to be a part of your life. Be a part of who you are. I love you Chris & Keith Lynch ❤
Every two weeks I find myself here. Sitting. Waiting. Hoping. Doctors are nothing new for me. Familiar to the point of annoyance. Hospitals, just the same. I’ve fought my way through. Ten surgeries solidified the end of one ailment and the beginning of another. Its almost habitual now. To be there. Know the routine. The “hurry up and wait” moment. I don’t mind it so much now as I did then. The hardest is watching the kids come through. Hearing their quiet sobs because they don’t understand what is going on or why they go through the pain. If I could, I would take it all on for them.
Thank you to all health care professionals for taking the time to study, learn, love, care, hope & treat.
Beautiful. Sanded down by the beating rocks, worn smooth by rushing water, carried only by the current. Stripped of everything but what has grounded it for its entire existence. Stopped there, in that place for me to capture its beauty forever.
The sharpness of the contrast. The smooth look of the falling water. Focused on what’s in front of you. What you can see. Its a cloudy day with a slow soft rain. Hidden by the beauty in this photograph.
That’s why I shoot.
