Hard to believe it's been two years since I shot one of these. It's been such a busy kick working on my film projects. I love the work, but certainly, the rewards are far less immediate than in photography. Instead of hours or days, it takes months, sometimes years, just to see one film project through from inception to completion… Sometimes, within this process, it feels like I’ve sacrificed my creativity to the administrative duties of MAKING the actual work.
This needs to change.
In the coming months, I hope to carve out more time for the work I care about. The creative work. Brainstorming, photography, writing. The stuff that makes me feel like I’m actually alive.
This photo serves as a gentle reminder of the idea that, no matter how powerless we feel, each day we have the power to change our future. The choices we make today will cause a ripple effect through the rest of our lives. Every day, we are choosing from a series of possible futures, whether we realize it or not.
