I'm linking up with Kim

I find that I can still shoot even though my thoughts and stomach kinda feel like this...

In fact...I find it odd that the more I feel all discombobulated, the more creative I get. One particular bad day back in April, I was on a roll and photo bombing IG. I think I even apologized for it. I couldn't help it. I can't help it today.
 This started out as shot for #greenfriday on IG...Then the more I started unraveling that thread the more I connected with the tangled mess.
 My trip to Pensacola is on hold as my mother declared in court she needs help. So that means she's not coming home until at least July 10th. It also means that the days I spend on the phone looking into facilities that might be able to help after she is released is on hold. My day to day life is on hold. My entire summer is on hold and most days I feel like this thread...twisted, gnarled and feel burdened with no end in sight.

I find that some days I'm too cynical~a trait that I despise & I beat it back to where it came from because that is not me by any shape of the imagination.
 I find that I still have light in my photos.
 Now I'm no psychologist, but I know that's a good sign. 
So, I go to bed exhausted and wake up hoping for a bit of good news. I know set backs are inevitable. 
I know one day...
"Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right, then it's not the end."
John Lennon

Happy (thanks for listening) snapping!

  1. I truly marvel at your creativity! I'm just sorry it is a result of angst. But how wonderful you have this outlet to help you cope.

  2. Great illustration of how you are feeling right now.

  3. Perfect images for how you are feeling now.
    I hope things get better soon, Kelly.

  4. This made me laugh and then reading on I realized that you seem to have more reason to cry.
    To create something so funny as well as beautiful when things are not running smoothly: that is what I call true artistry.

  5. You are a strong woman Sis.
    And you are using your creativity as a wonderful outlet.
    Always know I am here for you.

  6. I love visual representation of feelings and you certainly nailed this one....I am sorry you are under so much stress right and hopefully it will lighten soon....

  7. Your creativity is like the Energizer bunny; it keeps going, and going, and going...! I love the image you created, and it certainly fits your situation. I know it must be super frustrating, but does this mean that your mom has agreed that she needs help (guardianship)? I wasn't sure if I had read it correctly, or not. But that's what I'm thinking.


  8. Your image conveys exactly how you are feeling at least it seems that way to me. I love your creativeness.

  9. Love your feelings portrayed this way....!!!
