My problem is... I'm afraid of 1 of 2 outcomes.
#1. No one says ANYTHING to me AT ALL about them. So [being me] that means they suck, & my "inner voice" says "told ya, stupid. Leave the photography to the artists -will ya".
#2. EVERYONE [& his or her brother] comes to me & tells me about them. And I feel like I'm being interviewed for a magazine.
[how's that for all or nothing? ...for that matter, talk about a no win situation]
Actually, I'm afraid of being noticed, watched, or spoken of like I'm some sort of Bono, or Eugene Peterson, or Roger Dean.
I hate being watched, studied, examined...
I'm not some great person, really I'm not.
And this name [bought "as is"] was created as yet another way to hide myself. To share my soul with out letting anyone have a clue who's soul they were hearing from. You know what? Batman & spider-man are fun -for 2 hours... but hiding is work. And I'm not sure I feel I should continue to do that.
So, anyway,I sit here... & truthfully, I'm glad she did it. I never said I was Ansel Adams, Leonardo Da Vinci, or Jimi Hendrix. I never will. Don't want to be. I'm me. Like it or not [often I don't like it... & it's time to change that -ok, probably about 2 decades past time].
I ran into a quote last week from an old USA Today article. Mary J. Blige was being interviewed, & she said this about herself:
“Once I found love, I found self-love. It’s the awareness that someone [cares] about you, so why don’t you?”
This really hits me. Don't quite know why it does, just that it does. So, anyway, while there are some who read this & know who I am exactly before even reading any of it... it isn't that hard to figure out anymore -either. So I may start posting photos ['n such] here. Just to personalize "the place".[I'll have to post about the Paisley show later...]
