I was asked recently what I was so afraid of, and I haven't been able to come up with an answer. I don't think I'm scared, but I know where that question came from.

"I'm running from my past and from all my mistakes
I'm running and I'm sorry I can't stay in one place
There's nowhere I can go that can stop me from running
So I'm running, I'm running to you.
~ Mistress Barbara (with Sam Roberts)

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

A dismal place, and I understand it can be scary. The treatment is very beautiful, great photo.
Good week.

@gerard1948: Thank you! And I think the processing made it look more dismal than it was :-)

Superb perspective I like how the words you have used complement the image

29 Oct 2012 7:46am

@Doug: Thanks! I went back on forth on that... it is after all a picture of a small child running and I am no longer small, but the words helped me say what I felt when I saw the image so.... glad you like it and thanks for saying so :-)

can not run away from everything that is scary! Let's face it ... Fix it if you can ... but let it go ... forget ... Fear is human ...
