"The American church today accepts grace in theory but denies it in practice. We say we believe that the fundamental structure of reality is grace, not works- but our lives refute our faith. By and large, the gospel of grace is neither proclaimed, understood, nor lived. Too many Christians are living in the house of fear and not in the house of love." - Ragamuffin Gospel


more to come..

The last 24 hours have been so much fun! Portland is awesome. It really is. I know I need more time here to really justify that but so far the coolest things have happened. I arrived at the Portland International airport about an hour behind schedule (which is actually early according to airport time these days).  While on the plane I sat next to a lady that is a history professor at a community college in Portland. She commented on the book that I am reading and we started a full fledged conversation about life in general. Somewhere midway through the flight she gave me her card and said she might need someone to house-sit for her this summer since she is planning on being in Austin. The guy next to her heard us talking and also gave me his card saying he might be in the same predicament. He also said not to look for housing after March since the PSU kids swipe up all of the available housing. Good to know.

After the flight I said goodbye to Sylvia and headed on my way to find the Max transit. While attempting to buy my fare pass an artsy looking girl named Margaret from Baltimore asked me if I knew how to get to the amtrak station. I told her I was from the East Coast and we instantly began a long convo about the metro and growing up in the South/East and traveling post graduation. She wants to possibly move to an experimental city in Auroville, India that is fully planned and internationally inclusive. After giving me about 3 different authors to look up and her web address (where she displays her art), we said our goodbyes. I made a mental note of the number of times we mentioned the term "authentic community" and pondered the deep desire most people have to fulfill such a need. She also told me that she liked my hat and said that it was very "Portland". That made me happy since the clothes I buy at TJ Maxx don't particularly stand out as trendy in any way.

About Me

My photo
Tia Nicole Photography has launched this summer after many practice photo sessions and the encouragement of some dear friends and family ("Life Through Tia's Lens" was a recommendation of my good friend, Kristin, who has been an avid supporter the whole way through!). This blog has documented the process from the beginning and also dates back to some older rantings during grad school and football seasons. Feel free to get to know me and my work. I like to focus primarily on natural shots, true emotions and beautiful landscapes. I also absolutely adore kids and pets so you will find a good bit of my work in these areas. Feel free to contact me anytime! I love blog comments!

My pup, Rylynn!
