"I chose the freedom of long unscheduled afternoons in which nothing happens but the slightest shift in mood as captured in a semi-colon."
what a beautiful self-portrait.these are very soul stirring questions you ask. i am living them now.
beautiful self portrait. and yes, i want to push things further. i've just recently resolved to do so and it's rather liberating.
yes, very thought provoking questions that reach all the way to my heart and soul. lovely self-portrait.
I love that quote and your self-portrait. I need to push a little further, be a little braver ... it's a timely reminder.
i love pushing, but it can certainly be uncomfortable. yes, it often requires courage.
Your image strikes a strong chord in me, it is so beautiful and the questioning! I try to be true to myself, as for the edge, not sure if I have got there yet! x
i think it's a lot more tricky than we realise. even for those of us trying to allow ourselves to bloom fully, there are limits ready....
love the photo art.questions make us think.as time marches oni care less what others thinkand more for individualstime to do what i loveand i am doing "it"writing, photography, reading, cooking, walking....travelingmore living in the momentletting golife is goodthanks for asking.great post, i needed this.
maturity sure helps doesn't it?
Everyone's said it already: beautiful self-portrait. And what a perfect quote, too.Ronnie xo
I haven't accepted that "this is enough". I know there is more - I dream about it, about pushing further. I can see the edge, but there is a lingering fear that prevents me from stepping to that edge, making the leap, and spreading my wings to fly.
Beautiful work and yes i need to push myself further and it started by accepting my quirky side. Blue nail polish is rather liberating ;o)
comfort gives us very little but a moment's reprise. the edge is the stone which we are sharpened on. and so we push.yes, you are beautiful, the woman underneath and the spirit christening her.xoerin
LOVE your portrait (particularly your lips and the lock of hair next to them--beautiful details!).I see myself in an eternal plane where perfection is my ultimate destiny. In other words, I'm already on my way to reaching my fullest potential. I am both accepting that "this is enough" for now, but I do and will continue to have moments where I push myself further. Sometimes it's a seemingly slow progression while other times I feel like I am going full throttle in a particular niche in my life. Some desires go on hold for a while. Sometimes I lose interest in things while I am waiting for a spare moment--this only awakens me further to my true self. Which is really an evolving self--not permanently defined.How true to myself do I dare be? Definitely a challenge I am working on. I find it gets easier with more life experience. When I become more certain about what I believe in. Or even just willing to take the chance I could be wrong.
I loved your self-portrait! I'm working on being brave enough to start with self-portraits, so your photo was truly inspirational for me - thanks.
