More “cat tales.” I could talk about why I love this photo as an art piece, or I could tell you why I love this photo in real-talk form. I’m trying to be more honest on here because I think that’s what art is about.
It was Thanksgiving day and my parents had left earlier in the day to head back to Pennsylvania (we celebrated here a day early). A LOT of change happened for me at once in the recent weeks, including the move to Charleston from DC. Every time I part ways with family it’s bittersweet, and this time the additional feels of this whole new life here and knowing I’m even further away from home-home now.
I’m heating up my second helping of leftovers when I caught a glimpse of this sunset out my window and immediately grabbed my camera. I found my way to the edge of the river, sat down and started clicking away. WOW….. I paused for a moment to just take it in and then I absolutely lost it in the best of ways. Like what is this scene? Where am I? How did I get so lucky to be here to see this? Do I belong here? So many emotions processing, letting myself feel everything. In this moment I was truly grateful to be alone to feel everything in my own way. I have to make sure this is right for me, you know. It was a lot - but this sky kept bringing me back to my own personal fire: a place of passion, vision, desire, and curiosity. A place where I am truly me.
It was a once in a lifetime moment with thyself…and I knew right then I already really loved it here. Perhaps even more importantly I was reassured that I love myself for being brave, and no matter what we’d be ok :)
