I have been totally excited about this book and the deeper meaning it will reveal. A beautiful opportunity for me to capture my passion for spirituality, nudity and the personal unfolding of my pregnancy. And wow what a synchronistic start! The power of union was in full effect the day we went to shoot in Williamsburg Brooklyn (Perry chose the location). As Perry and I were walking to the waterfront to shoot, I was catching him up on the latest. Talking about Gene, the father of my baby, and that our connection has been really new but in the positive we are moving forward into this new life. Then suddenly running straight for me was Gene! Really? At 8am he was going for a morning run. I was happy also to introduce him to Perry and both being photographers connected on that note right away. It was a magical synchronicity and my intention was to capture that energy as we shot. In yoga the practice is mind and body with intention leading every movement. This principle illustrates the nature of reality being composed by karma, by cause and effect. When intention is lacking the movement is lacking in potential, possibly not as grounded or in alignment for example. Potential implies the fact that we can create, improve if you will, in the present moment if we are present to it. Sure we are living out causes previously set in motion, but the more aware we are in the moment the more ability we have to actualize. Yes I believe everything happens for a reason, sometimes the reasons are negative, sometimes powerfully conscious, and sometimes although too mysterious to figure out- are running straight for you at full speed.
