moving ahead

I've been reading a lot lately about letting your self be the person you are ( I'm not big on self help books so this is kind of a big deal!)and trying to let go of your sense of identity- mom, wife, sister, daughter, artist,worker. I guess the idea is that once you let go of these things, you discover that you are MORE you without the tags. It's been pretty liberating. Did I mention this thing about not taking life personally. That has really been amazing! The big one right now is accepting that the only thing I can change is my perspective. I think that's one of the reasons that photography makes so much sense . That's all it is. Shifting how you see the world. Here's the world from above

 and sometimes you need to be at eye level to appreciate something.

Breathing is good too. And embracing all the wonder that's out there even in the face of fear. Did you see Pan's Labyrinth?
How wonderfully scared and curious she was. I hope to be more like her everyday.
