What a great afternoon photographing for the City of Melton Christmas festival, Fantastic entertain, free photo and print with Santa and fun for all including me, they really did put on a fabulous event, lots of smiles, laughter and dancing, singing and jumping from The Mexican Music Man to the Mayor of Melton dancing with the children on stage, it was and absolute honour , I even had my photo taken with Santa, sang a tune with my new Mexican friend, a great way to finish 2017! A wonderful Christmas Spirit.
Here’s a piece that I started late last year but never quiet finished, it had been a week of people sharing their story, hurts and pain which stirred emotions within myself………..lets face it, most of us have been in this position of cruel words and lies. So my go to hide and express place and create images of feelings that I can’t say in words for the most part. At first I was quite upset and a little angry for myself and others, but as I put the images together I realised most of us would at one time or another been one of these characters, my heart began to soften and clarity showed up, no one is perfect, and most times cruelty comes from a place of ones own pain. Words hurt and words can heal, wouldn’t it be so much better if the ego was dropped? remembered our worth and not giving power to the truths based on other’s lack of true understanding of you? isn’t that saying that their opinion is more valuable than our own? If mistakes are made it’s the better person that can truly say they are sorry. I hope and pray that 2018 brings humility, kindness and love for all, sometimes you just need to walk away and be the best version of yourself. Don’t be harsh on yourself on the truths of others, most of the time they don’t actually know you at all. Be kind to others, be kind to yourself. How would you feel if this was done to someone you love?
You can’t control what others say about you but you can let it go if it’s not true.
Don’t get mad, get creative 😉
