It's tough to resolve to go on with business as usual today. It seems strange to pursue innovation when others are struggling to pick up the pieces of broken lives and hearts. At times like these, creativity feels like a luxury, not a necessity — one that those most hard-hit by current events cannot afford. When happenings throw me for a loop, I find it helpful to focus on something simple. I try to find motivation and inspiration in things that are available to me.
In the past couple of weeks, I've been lucky enough to take in some nice sights as spring has taken root on the East Coast and in the Midwest. I've also spent some time in the past few days choosing my favorite images from the past year for a photo project I'm doing at home. I thought I'd share some of them here. I hope that, whatever you're doing to process yesterday's tragedy, you're buoyed by simple, clear thoughts like these.
All my best to my readers today and of course, heartfelt wishes for eventual peace and recovery to those reeling from yesterday's heartache.
