What If We Only Had One Year?
I felt a certain desperation in the beginning to get it all out there at once, but now feel like it has matured into something beyond what I ever imagined. It has actually become a huge healing process for wounds I have felt so deeply for such a long time. Wounds that festered and, in a sense, were eating away at my livelihood. Facing my fears of aging, angst toward a misunderstood childhood, struggling to survive in a failing economy. It is connecting me to so many people that have identified with some of my issues and allowed me to develop some amazing friendships around the globe. But best of all it has brought me closer to the ones I love around me; I have re-connected with my family in a way I have never known. This weekend I am actually going to go up to spend the weekend with my brothers and father and families, which I really would not have done otherwise. To write about one self deeply brings the collective universe into alignment. This summer I have been more content then I have ever been in my life. I am finding clarity in so many areas I was clueless. My internal stress has completely decreased as I become more aware of the remarkable beauty that surrounds me.
I am almost to the halfway marker, which will be the end of the month. I still have so much to say and explore. To take a breath, sit back, and write each day has become the soul of my existence. To still produce images, searching for the core of my inner self becomes a reward beyond my greatest expectations. The barriers of human discrimination are fading into oblivion, where it becomes an examination of the naked self without judgment. Thank you for becoming a part of and following my project.
