Suspended

Sometimes we enter a phase of suspension. Doubt sets in and we begin to question. Why does this happen? Sometimes things don’t go as planned or we don’t get to where we want to be fast enough. It could be many other things as well. We all have our belief systems. Quite possibly the tools that get us somewhere don’t work to further our travels, our vision. Not the tool of the camera, but the tool of our psyche, our vision. We step back. We feel lost. We take note of what is going on. We know things have to change, but we’re stuck. We look for answers. We have to keep working though. Inactivity will lead to a possible suspension of creativity, a furthering of ideas, a black hole.

This is where I am now. I know enough to put one foot in front of the other. Eye to camera to see, to discover. Is that something something new? Have I seen that before? I read. I look. I listen. I absorb, think, and empty myself. A process I repeat continuously. To nourish my mind, heart, soul, eye.

What is to come?

  1. Remains cool, tomorrow it will be light and new ideas arise, keep the faith in what he will be more beautiful, creativity and photography that give us every day, I am sure, the meaning to our lives artist, good day in NYC.

  2. I believe the part of my “block” has to do with a presentation of my work I am to give in a month’s time. An overview to the present. In putting together the presentation, I am facing certain personal issues from my past that I had dealt with at various times within my work. To give a proper presentation, I have to somehow speak of these issues which are painful. It is only the recent past that I finally figured out what certain things meant. As well, I need to continue with my work. Unfortunately, history can’t be ignored. I have to somehow speak of these issues which are painful.
