"The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one." – Mark Twain

I am leaving for Texas in a few days.
But not before I am done with the fivethousand other things that I have been meaning to get to for the last 3 months.

My brain is currently on overload.

More thoughts about being blind

I was looking over a popular photojournalism website recently, watching/reading a story about a school for the blind in Africa.
How they take these kids in from the slums, and cities and bring them to this school and teach them to read and live and function.

I saw this picture. And I loved it. In Fact, I've been looking at it a lot lately.
Thinking about it.

What if I learned to see with my hands, with my mind, instead of with my eyes.
What if I chose to be blind to some things for the sake of really seeing other things?

What if I chose to see with my head and my hands and my heart instead of my eyes?
What if I chose to be blind to the things that separate me from others-social status, economic relativity, denomination, nationality, gender, education, family?


I want to take pictures like that.
I want to live like that.

Build a Business off a D50?

this is sorta how I am feeling today

Film Frustration

I started shooting film but I think I got a little ahead of myself, because I was done shooting the roll, and was all ready to take it all out
and it got wrecked.
All exposed.
The Light came in and took all the images off my film.

I was thinking about this process.
And how its kinda like my life,
How when I stay in the dark, I can keep my memories, my images, my thoughts, dreams, expectations. How I also, when I am in the dark, keep all my junk, all my sin, bad habits, all the crap in my life.
But ...if I let the Light in.
It gets all exposed.
The Light comes in and takes all the Junk away.
Kinda sorta gives me a new roll of film.

A Protest to Winter

I got sorta tired of the snow.
So I bought a yellow dress, and some rainboots.
You know, to help Spring along a little.

I just want winter to be over.
Maybe tomorrow or today.

Snow, snow, go away and feel free to never come again another day.

if it was that easy

My sister 4 year old sister and I had the following conversation today:

Laura:"Grace, do you think I could ever make money with my camera?"

Grace:"Money? Just go to the bank and get money.
Then you can get chocolate ice cream for you and me"

I just want to be young again.
