Bio for Rebecca Webb Wilson:
Rethink, Remember, Renew - Nothing Captures The Beauty Of Life Like Images Of Nature
Memphis, TN, October 21, 2014 – When Rebecca Webb Wilson's parents gave their young daughter a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye years ago, they could not have known where it would lead her. While taking photographs of hawks along the expressway in her hometown of Memphis opened the gates to her passion for wildlife photography, her first job as a PanAm flight attendant fueled her wanderlust.
This avid traveler and accomplished nature photographer's passions gracefully combine in Well Seasoned: Savoring Life's Lessons (Inspire on Purpose), her new book that chronicles the seasons of life, illuminated by her unconventional and uplifting philosophy, in a collage of breathtaking photographs and inspirational essays. By pairing carefully crafted words with more than one hundred vibrant, full-color images, Wilson savors the clarity that time and experience make possible for all who journey.
Sprinkled with thoughtful quotations and fragments of poetry, her unique book shares the author's abundant gratitude for the sudden surprises and unexpected joys revealed in nature's seasons, and her own passing seasons – offering renewed hope to anyone hesitant about the aging process.
During her many travels, the author climbed and photographed Mount Kilimanjaro, the Swiss Alps part of the Haute Route, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, as well as capturing on film so many other wondrous places. This exquisite collection pays tribute to Rebecca's deep sense of adventure and desire to capture the moment for all time. For readers, it offers a temporary respite from everyday life - to be immersed in beauty and tranquility and to reflect on their own tender memories. Rebecca says it so well: Rethink. Remember. Renew.
