Sitting by the dock of the bay ... or by the boat dock of the lake. Whatever. It's still beautiful.

RENEWAL❤️ This is me taking a moment to snap some photos in Seminole Canyon last month. A while back, I decided to manifest more time in nature, more weekends away, more adventure. It has helped tremendously with work and life stress. I’m happiest outside and it’s imperative that I make time for it & invite it into my life. 🌵🍃🏕🌲🍁I’ve been thinking a lot about #metoo and my work with survivors. I’ve been thinking about making space for healing and how valuable it can be to simply share what has happened to you and have someone LISTEN and BE PRESENT. At work every day, my colleagues & I answer calls from survivors who share their #metoo with us. Our work is to provide legal assistance, but long before that we listen, bear witness, validate, affirm, and offer our presence. Sometimes we do breathing exercises together on the phone. Sometimes we hold space for the caller to yell, cry, or be silent. Sexual violence is one of the hardest things to talk about. So very many of us are survivors and some days the weight of all of it—the pervasiveness of harassment/violence due to sexism & racism & homophobia & transphobia & biphobia; how often it happens in families, to very young children by those who are supposed to be trusted adults & caregivers; the toll trauma takes on us individually & collectively—seems too much to bear. And this is where we find the beauty that keeps us going. For me, it comes from writing and taking photos and being in nature. So grateful for these gifts of renewal. To the survivors— may we all find ways to reclaim and reinvent ourselves as our hearts see fit❤️🌲

Sup 6 million year old rock in Texas. Humans have been coming here for 11,000+ years, before this century they were seeking enlightenment and shelter, now we seek the Instagram likes.

This grumpy old tree reminds me a lot of me. It’s a bit scruffy around the edges and has a few battle scars. It looks as if it has survived a lot of storms over the years, yet it continues to stand tall. I like it. #thisoldtree #instagramtexas #nature #texastrails #texasstateparks #findingme #soulsearching

Spent the day yesterday hiking through Perdernales State Park and it was a perfect way to spend my 35th birthday. There is so much beauty left in this world and we have to keep working to protect it.

#ThrowbackThursday to when I got to explore the mysterious wonders of Caddo Lake. All the cypress trees and Spanish moss make the lake a perfect spoke for a horror movie to be filmed. Not to mention Caddo is the largest natural lake in the south, and the only natural lake in Texas.

Not to be outdone, @caprockcanyonsstatepark might be the most underrated of the #texasstateparks I’ve visited. The bison were hiding from me but the prairie dogs were a bunch of show-offs. #caprockcanyonsstatepark #texasforever #wildfilmtour #wildtexasfilmtour
