I stumbled upon this latest post topic by accident while researching my absolute favorite artist, illustrator and author, Lisa Congdon. I was initially going to post about Lisa (and I'll get to that) but as I was cruising along on her site I was so moved by her post about her participation in good friend Karen Wolrond's portrait project "The Thrive Portrait Photography Project" that I just had to share. 

In October 2014, Karen decided to take a month-long sabbatical from writing her blog.  At the time, she was 47 years old, and more than any other time in her life,  she felt she was entering a great new stage, she was in a word, thriving. During this time, she began searching for blogs and other personal writings authored by people who were similarly situated, and feeling the same way she was feeling. Sadly, she came up empty-handed. This fueled her idea to embark on a new photography project that portrays women over the age of 40 who are thriving in their particular fields more than ever. 

In the process of photographing them with her Hasselblad film camera  she asked her subjects to describe for her what it means to them to thrive.  The resulting responses were so poignant that it spawned the publishing of her inspiring book Make Light which you can purchase on amazon here. Peek the gallery below for the beautiful women that inspired the project.
