Photo Essay

Learning How to Love You. Rhio9 and me.

Love sleeps

We met online several years ago. I fell in love with the cadence of photos from places I had never been. A beauty of color and saturation and curtains blowing in sea breeze. Mutual admiration. Coincidence collided changing both of us. Now we sit in perfect harmony in the same room and work, listen to music, speak when we need to, an economy of being. An appreciation for being. The rhythm and notes between the silences. Thoughts whispered in early morning mist on the way to work. Thoughts that sting. Thoughts that laugh. Thoughts that faced life. Faced death. We etch memories with images and laughs and love. We are still learning how.
