Symbolism: Depression

Symbolism I accepted an invitation to get involved in a project that tried to encapsulate an emotion within a single image. The project called for at least 6 images, 6 different emotions. They could be any emotion, they could be from the past or the present, however, they need to reflect you, so no smiling…

Trying few days

Problems always pop along in groups, it never seems, well to me at least, that problems come in a staggered linear fashion.   I fight with my motivation on a constant basis and it’s impacted by negative events from every angle. What they are? I suppose one of my issues is that I don’t share…

Reaching the crossroads of the journey in life

Honours Degree finished and although I do have a greater appreciation, however, at 53 what difference does this give me in life. It’s been a fantastic part of my journey in life, so I am ready to embrace a life more creative… what all that means I cannot grasp at the moment, I am relying…

Images in Context Experiment
