There’s a certain kind of green that happens only as spring begins to take hold—I call it “Spring Green.” It’s that kind of thing where the grass is so “full” from drinking rain that it turns almost yellow. It’s positively bursting with energy and life.
The photo I took this morning that I include here isn’t remarkable except that I think for the first time I was able to “capture” this special moment when Spring Green has transformed an otherwise unremarkable landscape into something marvelous—indeed, something magical. One of my favorite poets, e.e. cummings, would say it’s a time when the world is “mud-luscious” and “puddle-wonderful.”
I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and happy weekend :)

Many of you are aware that today is 's birthday. Since her favorite color is blue, I thought I might send her this dandelion and raindrop to help her make all her birthday wishes come true.
Luxe close your eyes and wish for your dreams to come true. Everything is possible but only if you know that it is.
Love your auntie lynn :) #happybdayluxe #dandelion #macrophotography
tears for Lee
I just learned that a good friend, Lee Daniels, a social luminary and photographer, passed away from a long battle with cancer.
Sometimes something is so powerful you just can’t talk about it. There are no words that could fully encapsulate what a loss this is not just for her friends and family but for all those whom her photography touched. No words to describe her amazing spirit, especially in the face of such great adversity.
I can only let my body and my photography express my grief today.
[Lee loved to photograph flowers. This one is for her]

I began drinking coffee when I was six and coding when I was in junior high. In college, I wrote poetry and minored in design. Later, I went on to channel those passions into a career in high-tech marketing. When I decided to get a little more serious about writing, I left the corporate world to become a Professor of Literature.
Right about now I’m pretty certain of
one thing, which is that anything worth doing—marketing, design, or critical
analysis—depends upon the stories we tell.
Ultimately, I’m still reading and writing stories and teaching others how to do this as well. I’m hoping that you’ll share your story with me.
I mostly post on the following topics: photography, poetry, and literature. I like to pair my photos with poetry, often my own poems, but not always.
Rarely, on design, social media, technology
