This morning I was feeling pretty grateful as I watched the sun come up. Grateful that everything in my life is going well and I have more than I need. Grateful that my husband is around more to create memories with our girls. Grateful for life in general. Then I talked to my sister and found out an old friend of hers died of an aneurysm yesterday. She had three young kids. It really makes you realize that life is fragile. And we need to make every day count. We need to make memories that our kids and grandkids will remember when we’re gone. Life is about building loving relationships. This doesn’t mean we can’t get frustrated or have crappy days. It just means in the back of my mind, I’m going to try to remember what I felt as i watched this sunrise this morning. For some reason, it was a more meaningful one. I hope we can leave a legacy of love behind. #utahisbeautiful#sunrise#mountains#wannabefarmhouseinthesuburbs#lookpastthelackoflandscaping#unfiltered

“Soaring” - I posted this photo (cropped as a square) on my main gallery @christinekenyonphoto.
Some people had asked to see the uncropped version, so here it is.
The full description can be found on my main gallery.
If you have never visited me over there, please take a minute to take a peek.
Since I’m on the road to Death Valley NP, I have limited time tonight to post, so please forgive me.
Creativity is complicated. At times my mind feels clouded, and I’m unable to focus the way I have been able to in the past. In truth, I have become busy. Busy with the things life brings. Busy with happy things. Busy with things that leave me in tears. Because of this busy-ness my space to create has taken a quiet backseat.
I’m making a goal this year to readjust my grip on my time. All while not pressuring myself with expectations, but simply opening the door to give my creativity the time it deserves to dig into my soul.
I have found if a bit of your heart and soul isn’t in the art you present, it will most definitely fall flat. I am sure when given space, my heart will be able to work its way to the surface and be present in my work.
In that vein, I have something I’ve been working on, and I’m “this” close to sharing it with you.
I sometimes find it hard to openly share certain pieces I hold close to my heart. I fear them being judged to swiftly, misunderstood, or scrolled past with a flick of a finger and little thought.
But, when there is a piece which expresses a feeling I cannot explain with my own words, that motivates me to share.
Conclusion: Keep going. Give your heart space. Give your creativity the time it deserves. Good things will come.
