2015 in Reflection

For years I have taken a photograph almost every day. This capturing delves deeper than photographing an object simply because I feel obligated to take a picture. Almost two years ago my dad had a stroke. During those first hours and long months after my daughter, my sister, my mom and I followed the stretcher into the emergency room, I began thinking differently about capturing moments.

Capturing moments has become a significant part of my journey. Curating and sharing has become a significant part of my journey as well. Over the December 2015 winter break, as I began to compile images and videos of the past year, I realized how much the process of capturing moments and of returning to savour them has been a healing space for me.

My previous year in review videos have been different. At times they have been out of duty to document a year. Last year I was so filled with gratitude my video paid homage to those who helped, who stepped in, who listened, and who understood the effects of such change on my family.

My video this year though is for me. It is my year-end visual reflection, my visual year-end take-away.

And oh, I learned so much.   Hope. Love. Family. Change. Strength.

    Cory, that was beautiful. I watched it all with smiles and some with tears. My take away was “Silence is better than…..”, something I am still learning.

    Cori that was incredible, inspiring and beautiful. First off, I love music, more than I love a big sky and golden fields, and have picked such a fitting soundtrack, I absolutely adore it!! And holy cats what talent. You have so many great photos and memories that I’ve never seen before and I totally understand not sharing all of them (as much as I would love you too,) I know how much more a photo means to myself when it’s not shared, having capturing the pinnacle of moments that are close to your heart. Your an amazing, wonderful, loving person and it shows. You have surrounded yourself with talented creative people who seem to inspire you, and more importantly, you inspire them. Great job! Very much love
