when i was pregnant with kai, my dearest friend paige, gave me a little egg with the word "begin" inscribed on it...this little mantra has stayed with me ever since. it carried me overseas to live - calming my thoughts and anxiety along the way; it comforted me many times toward the end of my pregnancy when i started to wonder what laid ahead; it soothed my insecurities many times when i looked the lens thinking what story can i tell - or looked at a blank paper waiting for words to emerge - or it's called back to me from a blank canvas in the voice of the dear friend who gave it to me "what are you waiting for....begin."
