Not all those who wander are lost

Sinful Sunday #52

As it’s the first Sunday of the month it’s prompt week. This month’s prompt is Minimalist, I don’t know if this qualifies or not but I want to go back to having fun here, everything has become far too serious.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;   (Tolkien – The Riddle of Strider)

Sinful Sunday #51

Sometimes, people with depression or other mental health issues, say they feel as if they are on the outside looking in.

I think that’s looking at the problem the wrong way around.

I’ve been thinking about this feeling of disconnect, separateness, and for me I actually feel as if I’m in a bubble, or a goldfish bowl. Life goes on around me, I can see it, but I’m not part of it. I can’t hear, feel or touch it, except through the glass. Nothing feels right, my world becomes smaller and smaller, my life shrinks and I curl in on myself until I feel like I’m going to disappear.

Contradictions

Sinful Sunday #48

There is a huge difference between what I know and what I feel and believe.

I know there are some people who find me sexy, attractive, whatever and yet I still have a hard time feeling or believing it. There are times I feel sexy, then I see myself and that damned voice starts up again.

Stupid, what the hell are you thinking, old, fat, ugly,

And still I try, I tell the voice to shut up, I know the lies it tells, I’ve listened to them all my life.

Sinful Sunday #47

It is the first Sunday of the month and that means it is prompt week. This month the prompt is: Reshoot

Confused? No need to be because this is actually very simple. Take an image that you already have and reshoot it. How and why have you changed it. What made you retake that specific image? Maybe you always felt like with slightly different light or camera angle it would be improved/changed. Maybe it was the surroundings that have changed? This is not a technical challenge per se but hopefully it will have you looking back through your images with a slightly different eye. Which one is asking to be retaken? Why and how do you feel about the two different versions?

I had no past photo I wanted to re-visit. Most of them I can’t even look at. I’m trying to move on, move past, but some days I feel as if I don’t know where I’m going, that I’m going to be here forever, past, present and future blurred together.

Winter is icummen in,

Lhude sing Goddamm,

Raineth drop and staineth slop,

And how the wind doth ramm!

Ancient Music – Ezra Pound

The temperature has definitely dropped over the last couple of days.

Time to start wearing a scarf.
