J.R.R. Tolkien wrote “All that is gold does not glitter”. That quote comes across my mind more often today because we live in a world of social media post and photo filters. Likes and follows mean more then family & friendships. We take hundreds of pics just to post best looking one. In keeping up with the Jones’, we lose focus on the reality of who we really are and journey. It’s like the humans race has turned into hamsters, running our little hearts out thinking we just ran a marathon but in reality we haven’t really even taking a step forward. Everything comes with some type of cost or consequence. Are you willing to live with that just so you can post “I’m just living my best life”? #smilexxvii
Around this time last year was one of the darkest periods of my life. My life was turned upside down and the script abruptly flipped by a single decision. A runaway train I was powerless stop. Broken and defeated I crashed down to my knees with a definitive reverberating thud. No more looking up at the sunset coming up with words to describe the infinite shades of orange, no coffee in the morning made with a love so great it shone a thousand times brighter than the moon, no more laughing so good it hurts. You know, it’s the little things. It’s always the little things. The darling nuances that make you linger a little longer in a singular moment. Yesterday was the culmination of my participation in the road traveled by many a souls. Another of “those little things”. The path of learning to be present and taking a snapshot, a snippet, a glimpse of peace and serenity once lost. Not haunted by the past and worried about the future but being in the present. The now. Powerful stuff huh.
Thank you to my family and friends for lifting me so high I saw he sky again. The ones who felt the earthquake along with me and stayed steadfast when the waves tossed me around and around and around again. It was YOU not I that was chosen by the gallery. I was just the instrument, the means to an end of one artistic expression-a picture-out of many. @_nigelhenry@marimarrobles@ginaj_esquire@rogerdemello@jeezydeezyteezy you are my rocks. Patrick Kahn @snapspace, heard you met my parents and made them feel so welcomed, thank you. To God be the glory.
Pics courtesy of my mom. I was too excited and forgot to take some of my own lol look for a little treat later on down the road.
