Stop and Pay Attention

Please welcome first-time contributor Cheerios, a man who has been diagnosed with Bipolar I, Bipolar II with psychotic features, and Paranoid Schizophrenia. His first acute episode occurred five years ago at the age of 41. He has always loved photography and would love to share more of his pictures to show others that Mentally Ill people are creative and are able to see, feel and express the beauty of God’s Creation.

About these photos: “The attached photos remind me of how beautiful life really is when you stop and pay attention.”
