The other day I went out shooting for the first time that I've been back from Europe. It had been a week and I was feeling very anxious to get out with my camera. I got so anxious, in fact, that I went out at about noon on the sunniest, hottest day I can remember. I knew I couldn't possibly shoot in direct sunlight with bright blue skies out, so I hopped on my bike and rode to my favorite sewer. Suddenly daytime could become an inspiring nighttime, and I was able to create with full freedom. I jumped around the sewer completely alone, feeling the power that is ART - being able to create for yourself, with yourself, by yourself...there is nothing more powerful to me than that.

This piece is more personal for me than I usually like to put into a picture. I have been feeling rather torn lately between wanting to be productive and go go go! and also wanting to keep quiet and to myself. I think this is the result of being overly tired from my trip (sometimes my Fibromyalgia creeps in, boo!), but that does not mean I am in bad spirits...oh no, quite the opposite. I have been relaxing more than I am used to but also taking the time to be inspired...constantly...beautifully. I have been doing everything from planning my new photo series to writing video game ideas. Sometimes sickness is a blessing, and now that I'm feeling more like my usual self I am ready to create!
