Sinem In The House
Band of Faith
When you embark on a journey of a million miles, what makes you let go of fears of the uncharted territories and stormy seas?
Would you board a flight not equipped with safety devices or sail on a ship that did not carry life buoys?
Isn't it the same with any relationship? Is it a coincidence that the word defining our deepest interactions with fellow humans has a 'ship' at the end? Would you board a ship to sail a journey of a million miles if you knew you'd end up at the bottom of the tempest tossed seas at the earliest sign of storm? For there are as many days of soaking storms and howling winds as there are days of endless sunshine glittering on the endless sapphire waters...
I feel safe and content, knowing that I will be going through life's journey with a man who means it when he says, ' in sickness and in health', 'for better or for worse', 'for richer, for poorer' and is strong enough to walk with me and hold my hand, through the sunshine and the rain; not behind me, not in fornt of me, but by my side, as my equal.
So as I sat on the waterfront, on honeymoon in CentreParcs, contemplating the journey ahead; I took this shot knowing full well it was not just a lifebuoy. Not for me anyway. It is a band of faith.
