At the age of 42, my soul started searching for "Peace" and "Tranquility". My life up until that point had been anything but. I was sexually abused by a family member at a young age, became fatherless at the age of 12 due to my father leaving my mother and refusing to care for us, had two children before graduating from high school and a total of four children by the time I was 25. As a young single mother of four, I struggled to provide for my children and relied on public assistance. “Peace” and “Tranquility” were definitely not a part of my world.
Like I stated above, I was desperately in search of “Peace” and “Tranquility," even though I had no idea what they would look like in my life filled with strife and turmoil. But I began to search. It was during this search that I started looking to the sky and there I found the “Peace” and “Tranquility” I was searching for. At that point, I started taking pictures. My pictures began to open new doors for me and a new way of thinking and seeing the world around me. They helped me to believe in a higher being and see a higher purpose for my life.
