Artist Inspiration: Tec Petaja

My tears could

not be restrained.

Such beauty.

Such soul.

Such love.

In the magical

photography of

T  E  C   P  E  T  A  J  A


The Nashville based

Petaja traveled to

Kenya, Nairobi, and Lwala.

He is involved with the

Got Your Back

organization providing

school uniforms to

African children.


I am so thrilled to discover

this movement and want

to support their efforts–

perhaps you will also

be moved.


This is but one example

of the internet’s potential

to help individuals

change the world.

I stumbled upon one of

Tec Pataja’s gorgeous wedding

portraits and felt led to his

blog.

These images

stopped me in my tracks.



Thank you, Tec.

Thank you, GYB.

Your art, efforts,

and mission

are so very honorable.

Like you,

I hope to

RESTORE PURPOSE

GIVE HOPE

AND

SHOW LOVE

by spreading

a little lovely

everywhere.


Peace to you right where you are.

    I used to be a teacher in Brazil and I worked with kids that had less than the necessary and I will never, ever forget how much love, appreciation I've received from those children. Some would go to school just because they'd give a meal 1x a day. That was the only food they would eat. They would care about learning, because they had bigger "problems" to resolve: hunger.
    My goal was to be there for these kids to show that the only thing that could change their situation in the future was thru education. I know that many of them started to come to school because learning started to be fun, to be something interesting and yes, to ceased their hunger too. But they saw some light and that's what should be our goal in this life, to bring light to someone's path, to make them see better, to transform. I'm a believer.
    Thank you so much for this post. You've achieved more than you know. This very special, Michele.

    Thank you.
