Paper Heart

Newer Older

I'm feeling rather....artistically uninspired today. After watching the Hope for Haiti telethons (both U.S. and Canadian versions) last night, I'm finding it hard to feel inspired to take a photo of myself. It seems so trivial in a way, to pose happily in front of the lens while trying to block out the images and numbers that trickle in through tv, internet, radio, and newspapers. I didn't think it would stick in my mind like it has in the last few days.

Last night the Olympic Torch came through my town, while it was a cool moment to see a bit of olympic history, it was also rather mind-boggling to see how much money was spent on a few hours for the ceremony, such a stark contrast between the energy of the torch relay and the emotions of the haiti telethons...
