A photo a week… perhaps even more…

I have heard people talking about little photo projects that get them to be more active with their photography…..

Well the time has come for me to embark on my own little motivation / inspiration fueling project.

A photo a week….. at least one perhaps even more…..

I am going to be quite relaxed with the rules of my project…. But will try and upload at least one new photo a week for the rest of the year… heck for the rest of my life time!

In a s t a t e

neither h e r e nor t h e r e

in charge

my d r e a m s t a t e

And so it begins

And so it begins. The next chapter opening before me like a flower in bloom. I am calm. My usual state of letting my mind run on over drive, hyping up the rest of me, is strangely absent. I am focused. I am ready. Calmly waiting for it all to begin. Here’s to the rest of my life. Living, loving, with grace.

I am blessed to have shared many conversations lately, with people, about people. Especially about my love of  finding out things about people you could/would never have guessed upon your initial meetings and sometimes even well beyond that. Things you don’t even know about people you’ve known for some time. I love the fact that we are all a kaleidoscope of life –  lives even. Some we show to some and some we show to others and some we keep only for ourselves.

It is one of the main reasons I love photography. Being able to tell a visual narrative of (an aspect of) someone’s life. To select what you think best visually tells a particular person’s story. To all of my friends reading this, be prepared to receive a phone call from me in the not too distant future to ask you to allow me to document an aspect of you and your life. Please say yes.

We are all connected. We all share stories. It is how we know who we are.

Island Vibe

Island vibes

Familiar ties

times and tides

changing lives

A few years running

and I find myself

landed

again.

By the ocean

round and round

without a wheel of time

following the sun

in the winds wake.

Life is

and will forever be

that which you create.

This Man

This man

he

knows me

From the hairs on

my belly

to the curve of my breast.

 

This man

he

knows me

From the heights

of irrationality

to the depths

of desire.

 

This man

he

knows me

From before

children

drunkenness and stupor

To after

children

neediness and lack of glamour

 

This man

he

knows me

Sometimes

I think

better than

I know myself.

Love him. Yes I do.

Love him. Yes I do.

Poetry in Motion

I am poetry in motion

Stop

start

animation

painstakingly reworking

all the finer details

(years of work for a 3 minute show)

 

I am poetry in motion

Different from yesterday

In sync with the present

Aware of future alterations

 

I am poetry in motion

Full of haiku breaths

with sonnets in my hair

Sometimes in capital with

lower case moments

 

I am poetry in motion

Adding abstract narrative

Constantly commentating

Me

I am poetry in motion.

Hungover

Bleary eyed

Tired vibe

These bees buzz

constantly

in the tree above my head

It’s in bloom

I’ve been reading about the laws of attraction

and creative visulisation

Mangoes

then the 23rd chocolate

from the advent calender

sent from their great aunt

The children silent

watching a movie

Whilst I try to come to terms

with my hangover

amidst the overhead buzzing.
