Hands Framed Print featuring the photograph Temporary by Sagittarius Viking

It was a short fleeting moment. I was sitting on my bed, in the rental house in Napa. My daughter was 4months old. It was right before her first Christmas. My daughter was taking a nap right next to me, I was comfortably sitting in bed, editing photos on my computer. She woke up, looked at me very intensely and grabbed my middle finger. She did not let go. I had my camera within reach and captured the moment. I’m glad I did. It was a quiet moment of connection.

This was almost exactly 5 years ago to the day. The house we used to rent, where all those memories were made, burned down in the recent fires. My daughter’s hand is obviously not that tiny anymore! Even though she still enjoys holding my hand, this moment was a temporary blessing. When she was a baby I felt like time was standing still. I was wrong!

Have you ever felt like that? Like you’re in a vacuum? That time isn’t moving in any direction? In hindsight I’m extremely grateful for that special time we had, when the whole world was just her and I.

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria
