These fun shots are from a coast hike trip I did with my partner Eden. Very impromptu, very casual, but beautiful nonetheless! This trail is in between Cannon Beach and Manzanita. Beautiful cliffs, great location right on the edge, overlooking the cold, powerful Pacific.

Its so interesting to me that now, at 33 years old, working mother of 2, I am so much more comfortable with my body, than I was with a tight, fit 17, 18 year old body. I would have never allowed these photos to be taken of me at that age, nor posted anywhere! My ideas of beauty and powerful femininity have, of course, changed too, as I have gotten older.

Inhabit the beauty that lives in your beastly body and strive to see the beauty in all the other beasts.

When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.
