The lives of many pixels were changed forever in the creation of this image. I hope they’re happy.

Be well. Do good. Create.

  1. Gorgeous light! Perfect softness – not too much, not too little. But I can’t help feeling confused – if you’re on the CA coast, why is the sunbeam to the south on the right side of the photo?
    Re your statement, Be well.Do good.Create….it looked like you left the space between the words out (but now I think that’s just the font). Anyway, without the space, I hear it as running together, and rhythmic. I like that, it becomes a mantra that way. 🙂
