Elements & Healing (a heart theme!)

Hello all, from the sunny (*and hot, humid, rainy, windy, big-wavey!) Gulf coast of Florida!
(*nope, NOT complaining!)
We managed to dodge Hurricane Isaac, as tonight "he" is about to make landfall over (seriously...AGAIN??!!) NOLA, Gulfport, Orange Beach & thereabouts...beautiful places filled with beautiful people, and my heart sends a swift prayer for safety and if need be, healing, to all in Isaacs path.

This week at 52 Photos Project we are sharing our photos depicting
We Paint, We Cook, We Sew,
We Knit, We Photograph,
We Make.
We Create.
But where do we start?
What elements or ingredients 
do you gather together to begin?
Capture & share that magic in your photo! 

"I believe that what is most importantly required of me (or anyone else)
desiring to create a “good” photograph is simply an open heart and mind,
 which will in turn allow you to view the world with anticipation and expectation of finding beauty
and intrigue in every little thing that your imagination opens your eyes to be able to see!
Everyday life is so interesting in an abundance of simple yet touching ways, and I strive to capture what speaks to me, often in the most unexpected and seemingly ordinary places."
(from my artist statement) 

And this week on Wishcasting Wednesday, Jamie asks: 

I wish for a healing of my heart whenever it still feels
*guilty for past mistakes*
*hardened by past hurts*
*fearful from past failures*
*discouraged from past disappointments*
*closed off from past uncertainties*
*small from past experiences*

Thank you for reading, hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!
Happy Me-Laurie Z!
