Honored to be a part of this little video on @orvis about being a photographer in the fly fishing world. : @wildvisionfilms // link in my bio
No one ever teaches you how to grieve. There’s no handbook or pamphlet on what will work best to help fill the big gaping hole in your chest sooner.
I’ve come out to this spot before to cry and fill my lungs with the expansiveness of everything and to remember that death is so closely intertwined with life that we can’t live fully without both ends of the spectrum.
We drove here yesterday and I thought about my dear friend Ann who we are celebrating today.
I once got a fortune cookie that said, “The best cure for grief is motion.” And watching the wave sets roll in yesterday, I understand those are some of the wisest words I know.
Love you always.
A morning of hot coffee and warm sleeping bags.
It is so, so rare that I ever touch a fly rod on a big photoshoot. But when the images are taken, the cameras are put away, we’ve got 5 minutes before we have to be on the road and your friends hand you a fly rod, it seems like the best way to honor the people and fish you’re with. // photo: @katiecahn@orvis#orvisflyfishing@chetolaresortflyfishing
