i spent the past two weekends with people coming together to celebrate the way they care. about life, about their actions, about themselves and others. it can be quite overwhelming at times, feeling the air vibrate with energy when a thousand people move just the way their bodies (and minds) tend to. when a thousand people sit right next to each other, but all in their very own silence. in these moments, i have to step back, just like i did when i took this photo, and take it all in. all by myself.
