Gems 3.75 Cord X TNH Freedom

Photo by Cord X., San Antonio, Texas

About the Photographer

We’re really grateful for a new creative connection today.  Today’s beautiful photo is by Cord X.  Cord, “originally from Wisconsin, sometimes poet,” is a homeless creative living in San Antonio, Texas.  This is his first photography submission but we sincerely hope it will not be his last.

Journey Notes

Special thanks to Cord X. for today’s photo and to “cyctw” for today’s quote.  The suggested theme for July is “freedom,”  but if you have a favorite quote about any other uplifting subject, please let us know.  We’re always accepting favorite quotes.

Your Creativity

As always, we would love to feature your creative visions too! If you would like to contribute photos, art work, short poems/stories, quotes, time, etc., please see our “About Us” page for details.  When we show each other what we find beautiful, we get a glimpse into each others’ hearts.

 

May you find joy every day of your journey through life,

Update:  May 8, 2017

There are people in my life who are brave on a daily basis.  These people remind me that I can be brave — that I always have been.

Under1000skies resumed daily posts today and will continue hopefully until I’m long gone.  This is my golden bowl, and this work is vital.

The pain, every day upon waking; the knowledge that, after 402 days, my son Benjamin Archer is still missing; — these will not be undone by hiding, numbing, or distracting.  After all, “Life is about using the whole box of crayons.”  Even the storm colors.
