Light your flame and let it lead you to your happy place
During times of darkness...light your flame and find your happy place. My camera has always been my escape...behind the lens is definitely a happy place...but in a very very literal way. It is imperative to recognize that happiness comes from within us. We won't find an object, a person or a physical place where it exists. If you find your passion...then let that passion ignite the flame that guides you. Follow your heart. You may be isolated but you don't have to feel alone. Connect with others. Spend time doing things that you value...with people that you love...even if it is on the phone. A month ago I felt like I didn't have enough time in the day to create new art. Now I find myself incredibly grateful to have time. I can't change what is happening in the world right now but it is within my power to stay home. I have time to meditate, create, catch up with family and friends. The way I socialize is certainly different but my relationships have not changed. Be a giver. Volunteer. Find a group of people with like interests and teach them a new skill. To Brooke Shaden...thank you for being a light in the world for other artists. Thank you for being an example of how compassion for others can change the world...one step at a time. One life at a time.
