a good friend once talked to me about the 'tapestry of life'

referring to the times of doubt, fear or frustration that we all feel sometimes ... these shadows give depth and definition to our lives, without which our 'tapestry' would be superficial and incomplete

"To see a world in a grain of sand,

And a heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And eternity in an hour." ~William Blake

 

According to Wikipedia;

"Purgatory is the condition or process of purification or temporary punishment[1] in which the souls of those who die in a state of grace are made ready for Heaven. This is an idea that has ancient roots and is well-attested in early Christian literature, while the conception of purgatory as a geographically situated place is largely the creation of medieval Christian piety and imagination"

 

A question of mortality, a theory of morality, a search for truth... What awaits on the other side?

 

Guys, thanks so much for your kind words and for passing by. It has lifted my spirit during these dark hours...I hope all is well on your side of the world. Take care and I'll see you again very soon. :)

I miss painting. I was never really good at it, but I enjoyed the sound dry paintbrush bristles made when they're dabbed into thick blobs of paint. After yesterday's fiasco, I decided to alter my mood by soaking up some summer sun.

 

The thing I'll miss most about daily portrait-taking is the chance to get out and deliberately do something crazy. Maybe, I'm wrong, and I've now become conditioned in doing crazy things, that it will just seem like second nature. But I know my fascination with optical phenomena will never stop. I know now that I want to take pictures, until I die, plainly because I've realized that I enjoy colorful chaos.

 

Enjoy your Sunday guys, hope the sun is shining brightly where you are :o)

How do you express derision? They say the best way to tire people who never stop talking shit is to give them more things to talk about...

 

I prefer to keep quiet... things have a way of getting around.

Besides, we all hold our own truths anyway...

 

Hope you're all having a quiet and relaxing weekend...

 

"I asked myself "What is the myth you are living?" and found that I did not know. So ... I took it upon myself to get to know "my" myth and I regarded this as the task of tasks ... I simply had to know what unconscious or preconscious myth was forming me." ~C.J. Jung

 

2010 saw me complete my undergraduate degree. I lost two very important women in my life unexpectedly. A great friend moved to the other side of the world. Discovered new friends and lived for new experiences... I was up, down, but mostly all around on most days, but not a day went by that I did not pick up my camera and take a picture.

 

Some people are blessed with a photographic memory, but mere mortals rely on photographs to tell stories. At the beginning of my journey, I did not know what to expect from this project, I was sure I'd run out of ideas by Day 70, but I managed to claw my way to the finish line.

 

Project 365 has taught me that there's nothing absurd about making any attempt to get acquainted with ourselves. I also learned that each day presents something that can spark our imagination. That a whole year can be recounted in a series of pictures. At the end of it all, it matters most only to one person, but what a wonderful feeling to be able to share the journey with the most amazing people, family, friends (near and far) and perfect strangers.

 

This is my story, for which I make no apologies or excuses. I just...am. And I have you to thank. :o)
