When looking through my photos of 2021 they didn’t reflect the heaviness of the world I was often feeling. I noticed that I captured the creativity, playfulness, people, and extraordinary beauty I was experiencing on a daily basis. What sparked and amused me helped me manage all of the stuff I couldn’t photograph.
This year we’ve all been greatly affected by the pandemic, the January 6th attack on our democracy and all of the events and circumstances our family, friends (and the world) have been through. Today on the first day of 2022 I see one zig zaggy path forward for me…a motto I will need to remind myself of frequently.
Life is absurd. Enjoy the ride.
This is one of my favorite photographs this year was taken at Halverson’s on Church Street in Burlington, Vermont in April. Willa had just dyed her hair…just imagine a world without color?
I don’t see this guitar in any shape or form except when I preview this page. Instead of wasting more time when I want to take a walk and a dip, I’m leaving this ghost guitar drawing.

Here’s a glass of sunshine for you in 2022!
Thank you for this Lisa!! Beautifully captured on so many levels. Looking forward to seeing you in 2022! In the meantime hugs and much love.
Sara while reading your blog, I feel that the absurdity of life is also speaking to acceptance, pause, and the space we all have between events and our responses. Thank you for reading.
