moving through it all...

The photograph is something, in its highest form that I am giving for my effort. It is not something that I take. And then after I bring it back, develop it, print it, look at it, experience it again, I submit my experience to life. I give it back to the world, it came from. Light into darkness. Darkness into Light. - Sheila Metzner, , ISBN: 0893816523 , Page: 116

violette = purple

Purple embodies the balance of red's stimulation and blue's calm. This dichotomy can cause unrest or uneasiness unless the undertone is clearly defined, at which point the purple takes on the characteristics of its undertone. With a sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is the favorite color of adolescent girls.

How the color purple affects us physically


Calms the mind and nerves

Offers a sense of spirituality

Encourages creativity

~my mind is just hasn't yet been formed...

As photographs give people an imaginary possession of a past that is unreal, they also help people to take possession of space in which they are insecure.

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.

When your life situation is all you know about yourself then you miss life. You may be very good at dealing with your life situation, but you miss life. You never really get anywhere. Life is now, not in the doing.
