This week.

This week I attended the Jesh de Rox life {as an art form} workshop. Wow. I honestly don't even know how to begin to describe that experience, so I don't think I'll even try. Just know that I, and seven other people, came away with so much more (and so much less) than we could have imagined possible after three days. I feel like a new person, truly.

Anyone who has considered attending this workshop would be a fool not to. Jesh is honestly the most selfless, giving, loving person I've ever encountered and will turn your life upside down (in the best way possible :-).

So. :-) I really didn't actually shoot that many photos while there, but I wanted to share a few that I did. As you can see above, we started Wednesday with some amazing pancakes Josh whipped up for us...hey Josh, will you deliver to Tonganoxie??? ;-)

Above is Sharon, a "stranger." One of our assignments was to find a stranger and take their photo. So one evening at Bob Evans with Jesh, Heather & Olivia, I noticed Sharon sitting alone in her booth and decided to strike up a conversation. Through that conversation I discovered such an amazing person. Sharon shared some of her story with me (she takes Girl Scouts on camping trips in freezing conditions to teach winter survival, for instance - that's pretty hard core :-) and really touched my life. It was amazing that spending such a short amount of my time and efforts could be so worthwhile. Sharon, if you're reading this, know that you are so wonderful. Thanks for our talk :-)

A few of our assignment photos with Josh & Sasha, illustrating freedom, joy & peace.

These shots of Will are probably some of my favorite photos I've taken in a long time...

A self portrait.

And some fun ones of all of us, except Amy! I'm so bummed Amy, you managed to escape everytime I took a picture apparently :-)

Thank you so much Jesh.
