I know its been a fair amount of time yet despite my absence from Flickr, I have been really busy of late. Clearly the aftermath of Mum passing is still ongoing, yet in many ways, both Arthur and I are doing really well. Currently life is about finding new routines, changing habits and moving forward. I have a concept I want to execute to summarise this point (as I feel it has a lot of scope for various images) but I have yet to find an appropriate location. I didn’t really want to interrupt my stream with uploads of anything else, until I had tried to convey where I am up to with that and I shall elaborate more on that point when I have the appropriate image.
I shot this in Manchester today, the blue wristband in shot is from the Manchester Tattoo Convention at the GMex. I went to meet my newest tattoo artist, who is sooooo nice and lovely, I can’t wait to nail my design with her. Again, she is London based, but I’ve done it in the past and I will do it again :)
I know I look quite pensive in this image, which is more to do with me working out my equipment than anything else! But I chose to upload this shot because it encompasses how I have felt a few times this week.
I just want to vent a little here, and say no matter how we try or
reason, the honest truth is we can’t begin to understand other
people’s behaviour, however we interpret it, whatever or however they
choose to project themselves. All we can do is take care of our own
behaviour and actions, this is the area where we can take
accountability and acknowledge our part.
Sometimes those closest to us can hurt us the most, in many cases knowingly. Although I will strive hard never to judge (lest I be judged) there are just some instances where I don’t understand.
And you know what…..I’ve discovered that that is ok. Sometimes we just don’t get answers to those questions. But just as we must be mindful of our words, actions, behaviour and ideals. So must they.
Promise more uploads soon….as soon as I get my roots done :p
