Life is Beautiful
I’m inspired by my brothers, Steve and Eric, who, at end of their lives, found beauty in the world around them and in their family and friends. Steve, a commercial fisherman, took amazing photos of the ocean and shore— capturing its timeless beauty and serenity. Eric had a lifelong passion to study astronomy. He took stunning photos of the moon and stars and volunteered to show others the vast wonders of our universe. Although each struggled with significant physical pain, they showed me that everyday we can find the beauty around us and take comfort and respite in those moments of awe.
I hope you participate and share with us the moments you find beauty and joy as part of this campaign to inspire our community as my brothers have inspired me. Each one of us has a unique perspective on the comforting beauty in our everyday lives. For me, I find beauty in my love of family, the quiet majesty of the New Hampshire mountains, art that brings color and life alive on a canvas, and even in the water-cooler giggles with co-workers at the end of a hard day. I hope to discover what others in the community see and share and be inspired by the images that bring comfort and joy as we face down primary hyperoxaluria.
