Let's try this....one....more.....time.....

How quickly time flies!

I cannot believe December is nearly here. And with it comes the start of my next 365 project. I know. I know. I'm pretty sure I've lost my mind, too. But I miss my cameras. A lot which means it's time to drag them out and getting shooting with them.

This time around, I'm going with an all subjects theme. People. Places. Things. Myself. Who knows what'll I'll end up with but there will be a catch (isn't there always a catch)---it'll be a project in black and white.

Personally, it is my favorite "form" of photography and one that I find to be quite challenging to produce. So, that's the plan.

Now I just need to find a place to host the photos as to ensure they aren't just clogging up my hard drive where no one and see them!

My friends and family who allow me to be a straight line is a world of squiggles.

Music Monday: Shake It Out

I am in a terrible musical rut.

Nothing even sounds remotely interesting which is not good. It makes for very long and boring days at my desk when I listen to the same playlist and albums on Spotify over and over and over and over.

One of those albums that has been on a pretty constant rotation since it's release is Ceremonials from Florence & The Machine. I'm not totally sure how I feel about the album as a whole. But, Florence Welch has one hell of a voice and thank to its lyrics the current single, Shake it Out has found it a permanent spot on my list of favorite songs.

Music Monday: Say

Last week I sent to see one of my favorite authors speak and during the Q&A session someone asked him the following question:

"Who is your favorite band and why?"

His answer to "who" was pretty straight forward--KISS. The answer to "why" was a little more complicated. He gave a pretty elaborate answer about what aspects of the band he thought were interesting (their music, their message, presentation, etc.) but ended with "When it really comes down to it, I just really like them."

Not surprisingly, there was a collect giggle that came from the audience after what was the most honest answer I think I have ever heard given by someone when asked that question.

So, for today installment of Music Monday I'm taking his lead and going with a song by a guy that I like for no other reason than I like him and I like this song::

Wrapped Up in my Head Again

  • It is entirely possible to spend a very short amount of time with someone and feel like your whole consciousness has shifted.
  • At times I think the idea of things is better than the actual item itself. 
  • I am finally at peace with my past.
  • I've also come to terms with the idea that the perception people have of me may not be anywhere near the truth and that it's not responsibility to change that.
  • It's a tricky balance between doing what makes you happy and doing what you want to do. They are not mutually exclusive.
