I want to go back...


Falls...b/w, originally uploaded by aikitherese.

...to this place...and spend some time in the hushed ambiance of nature...

Back to the grind...if it can be called that. Everyone is off to work (far away this time in Indiana) and school. The house is quiet...I have my freedom (which comes with the price of responsibility...i.e., laundry and household maintenance...). Several rolls of film to process (even a 35mm roll that Julian shot with the Canon...), but I don't know whether I'll get to those today...maybe a start...

I'd like to maintain the balance I felt up north...away from phones, from computers, from the strange positions (emotionally) that I put myself in with my contacts. But perhaps that's what my path is...to feel the off-kiltery, anxious quiver within and just abide with it...to rest in that place that allows for it all, knowing that change is always, ALWAYS on the way...*sigh*...to feel the connection to everything, although my internal conditioning leads me to believe I'm separate and unworthy... Wow, seems I have enough to keep me busy for a lifetime :)...

With some notable encouragement and guidance from flickr friends, my energy in building my photographic skills has been re-charged. I'm looking to purchase a photograhic printer next, with which to produce prints from my noteworthy digital images. The darkroom awaits with thoughts of different papers and techniques as well...

All the while...I make the effort...sometimes feeble...to stay with what's right in front of me, to get a grasp on truth and reality... Oh...a quote I just read yesterday that I really loved: "Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away..." Philip K. Dick
