“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Can you tell me who you are? Can you pin yourself down in one image, one phrase, one description? I can't, I don't even try, I'm fragmented, multifaceted and full of glorious contradictions. The self can be as mercurial and fleeting as time, layered, textured, weathered, full of subtle and grand details, rooting down, reaching up, dancing with the shadows and seeking the light, ever unfolding, still being written, still being dreamed up, always exploring and being touched by life- all of it, all of it and that's just a day.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
I used one of my Lomography double exposure images, perfect for fragmentation.
I loved this post too. I've loved them all.
