This photo is special to me because i am healing my emotional wounds and learning to love myself and embrace all the facets of “self”.  i know that to love others i must also love myself.  it’s a self portrait in a puddle.  i was walking around østensjøvannet in Oslo Norway.  a wildlife and bird sanctuary.  i live in the USA but have roots in Norway. this was my first time visiting Norway.  the sun was setting, a gentle breeze was blowing and i felt like i was healing something deep within myself on this walk i took in solitude feeling connected to all of nature as i walked around the lake and saw many beautiful birds swimming and flying above me.  i titled this photo “østensjøvannet puddle healing me”.
