Summer Wants You to Know
I have to admit, I pretty much wrote May off as a mental health month. Plagued with rainy days and gloomy thoughts, I felt anything but creative. But I figure it’s about time I resume spewing my occasionally nonsensical but always creative thoughts. Of course, I’m not entirely out of the funk I’ve been in. Not even close. There are some days where just trying to stop myself from destroying everything in my path wears me out, and there are other days when I just can’t stop crying. Today, though, is the kind of day that lies in a grey area. If I let myself think too much it will most assuredly result in one of the aforementioned mood swings, so I’m not thinking. I’m doing. Shopping, writing, redecorating, crocheting, and, earlier this afternoon, photographing. We’re experiencing a mighty strong heat wave in my area this weekend, and although the temperature tends to strip away any spring I might have in my step, the sunshine is definitely welcome, so today I decided to take advantage of the sun and went outside in search of some interesting things to shoot.
These were all taken right in my front yard, just shy of the street, and actually, just a few feet from the city’s bulldozer that’s been tearing up the street this past week. I like that you couldn’t tell that just by looking at these. Some of these pictures are their own little worlds. At least, that’s what I see.
