Quite a week in my personal life, with nothing in my art-making life to balance things out. I practice mindfulness regularly, both in everyday life and with photography, where it gives me greater access to the right brain, without the obstacle of thought. I have to shovel the roof on the addition to Rauhallinen Farm, in addition to the woodshed rood, as we are expecting yet more heavy snow. I hope to get out with the Hasselblad and shoot a roll of Fujichrome Velvia 50 in the morning, before the work starts. Always a calming and centering measure for me. People can be very disappointing, but acceptance can ameliorate.
“It was one of those times you feel a sense of loss, even though you didn't have something in the first place. I guess that's what disappointment is- a sense of loss for something you never had.”
― Deb Caletti, The Nature of Jade
