“Action and contemplation are…” -St. Bernard of Clairvaux


“Action and contemplation are very close companions; they live together in one house on equal terms. Martha and Mary are sisters.”
-St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
