Impressions On The Palouse

When I moved to the Pacific Northwest I read about a place called The Palouse. “What is The Palouse?” you might ask if you aren’t from around here. Well, it’s a 4,000 square mile region of rolling, asymmetrical hills covered in wheat. I was completely smitten by the idea of heading out with my camera to explore this divine-looking destination. It only took me 4 years, but hey, better late than never.

Let me show you my impressions on The Palouse!

I was amazed by the rolling fields of wheat, the colors, and the shapes and textures they created.

Love Letter To Amsterdam – Farewell

Love Letter To Amsterdam – Farewell…for now…


January 9, 2016

My Dearest Amsterdam,

I woke under the cover of darkness this morning with a knot in my belly and a sadness in my soul. The time has come. I must leave you.

Love Letter To Amsterdam

As I say my final farewell, I can hardly see your through the tears but I am grateful for the time we had together. I will always remember these moments, so special. Not only did I fall more deeply in love with you, but others developed a crush on you as well. You, my dearest Amsterdam, allowed me to feel my love and pass it on.

Thank you to all I met, to all I experienced, to all I felt, to all I learned to, to all I COLORED and to all who joined me and LOVED with me.

Love Always,

Melissa

PS – I’ll be back. I just KNOW it! Vaarwel & tot gauw

My Dearest Amsterdam,

When the wind hushes and the water lies still, I love how you look at yourself “in the mirror.”

Love Letter To Amsterdam

You know don’t you? You see it in your own reflection, yes?

How beautiful you are.

How grand your architecture is.

How romantic your boats are.

I love you for knowing, dear Amsterdam, and looking.

Love always,

Melissa
