Remembering a splash of color

Winter skies are here, the snow has fallen, the colors have slumbered…let us not forget the dream of autumn golds, the velvety colors of transition…

California dreaming, on such a winter’s day?

Move over Cali (nothing personal, love you), but I dream of the richness of the mountains, Telluride’s autumnal splendor and explosion of colors…

Amidst a sea of white and grey, I dream in color

Class of 2015, you are dismissed!

The U.S. Air Force Academy Class of 2015 tosses their hats in celebration as The USAF Thunderbirds roar over Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs, Colo. May 28, 2015. Over 800 cadets graduated and became 2d Lieutenants. Deborah Lee James, the Secretary of the Air Force gave the Graduation Address.  (Air Force photo by Liz Copan) (released)

I couldn’t be more proud of “my kids.”

I say my kids because four years ago I watched them; wide-eyed, insecure adolescents filled with a mixture of hope, fear, and uncertainty, “doolies,” some barely 18 years of age.

Through my lens, I have watched them grow and mature into women and men of great strength, integrity, and character, who will one day be tasked with leading our country.

Among the newest batch of second lieutenants, 360 will directly attend pilot training, 89 will work in space and cyber space fields, 89 will attend graduate school and 44 will join nuclear missile operations.

I still have a difficult time parallel parking, let alone flying a fighter jet (which is amongst one of the many reasons I am an artist).

840 hats were tossed in the air, voices raised in celebration as the F-4 Thunderbirds echoed their roaring sentiments.

You’re not kids any longer, congratulations Class of 2015.
