"In this time of desperation, When all we know is doubt and fear…"
It’s been a crazy couple weeks. As I’ve thought and processed about what’s going on, I’ve had moments questioning the value of art. Somehow it seems smaller and less significant. And yet, I’ve realized, the world needs art now more than ever.
In her dreams she rises above the world and creates her own borne out of who God created her to be.
Sometimes creation takes time. And that’s okay.
How many pieces are lost to the clutches of time? Thrown away before completion, simply because we weren’t willing to wait?
Sometimes part of living a creative life is taking a step back to refocus.
A year ago today I was out shooting in a magical foggy forest. Now that forest is covered in snow.
One of my favorite pieces was created there. Maybe it’s the strong association I had with the feeling of that moment, or maybe it’s that I was experimenting and playing, creating just for me.
Creativity isn't just something we do, it's something that helps us discover who we are.
Authenticity. Identity. Belonging. Imposter syndrome. These are all things that have been filling my mind lately.
But as I’ve dug deeper, these themes have strands that run throughout my entire life.
For the month of October, I took a step back from social media. No Instagram. No Facebook.
Today I'm working on some planning and brainstorming.
