How Will Ferrell, baseball, and a bird guided me from the bottom of a creative slump to filled with inspiration.
Abstract photography that tells stories. And stories transform us.
Benefits of writing in a journal.
“We read to know we’re not alone.”
― William Nicholson
I started writing in a journal about ten years ago. When I started, I was dealing with chronic anxiety. Anyone in that boat can tell you; it isn’t something you row yourself out of easily. So, stroke by stroke of the pen on paper, I spilled out negative thoughts.
Over time, journaling helped me challenge those apprehensions. Then finally, I understood my fears and concerns better. The parade of ruminations stayed on the page, and I could shift my thoughts to the positive.
Since lifting that fog, I have found joy in allowing my abstract photography to guide me toward calm. Being in the moment helped me find my balance, and I hope reading these will bring you some peace too.
