Dancing on Raindrops

It's that feeling,    

the one that you've loved forever

the feeling of splashing in puddles

and floating hand-made boats down the street gutters, 

during a rainstorm

and the feeling you have when you take a walk in the rain,

just because you love the cool air

and the way the roads turn black and shiny.

That is the feeling of Dancing on Raindrops.

“I believe that we all have a special light,
and to help someone’s light shine brighter,
is one of the most important gifts of all.
— Roxanne Evans Stout, Dancing with Raindrops

Dancing on Raindrops

 I wrote it for those moments that we savor. 

The moments when we stop and pause

and really look at the world.

There is something meditative about turning these pages and seeing the beauty that awaits you in every photograph.

As an artist, Roxanne’s work has always read like poetry to me and it’s so wonderful to see this rich collection of images available as an interactive journal.

Does it ever feel as if the mountains are singing?  A page from Dancing on Raindrops.

I am also mindful of the need to share
and to bring my art to life,
This is where I feel my deepest connections
to mankind.

Do you trust your own path?
Where do you take refuge and
where is your sanctuary?
Your map is written in the sky, do you see it?

Dancing on Raindrops is available on Amazon Books here.

So this is

the story I share 

a visual journal of moments

that I want to keep...

and in the process I hope you will appreciate more

your own moments

and take a closer look at the beauty in your life.

Dancing on Raindrops is a wonderful companion to my first book,

Storytelling with Collage, also available on Amazon Books here.

This second book is a great companion to Storytelling with Collage in that the first book teaches you Roxanne’s hands-on techniques for working with found objects and Dancing on Raindrops is actually meant for capturing your own visual stories—this time more two-dimensionally—right inside the book!
