329/366 – Turning Pages

I am currently reading a book that seems more like my diary written by someone else than just a book. The parallels between my life and the author’s life are amazing. And the range of emotions that have been brought on as I read are numerous as a result of all the similarities.

The book is titled My Berlin Kitchen, and is all about the author’s (Luisa Weiss) process of dealing with love, heartbreak, and homesickness through cooking. The relationships that we have had, and how they end is remarkably similar, as is how we deal with them. She also talks about the idea of being homesick no matter where she lived, and the constant pull to the different cities she had lived in (and even those she hadn’t), something I am constantly dealing with these days (and struggling with not having anyone that understood this). And, she mentions when she started her blog, and how it became such an outlet for her, which those of you who have followed me for a while know is also true for me.

The book has made me realize some things about myself, made me long for things even more than I was before, and helped me feel at ease about some things. All this and I’m only half way through. It has made me want to write more here on my blog, so I am going to try to follow through with that. I also have some plans in mind for after my 366, which I am already excited about. If you, my lovely readers, have anything you would be interested in hearing about, seeing, etc, please let me know; I would love to hear from all of you.

20/52 – Waiting for something better.

I have had these pictures for such a long time, but am just now getting around to posting them. This is for my studio project this summer (potentially?), and at this point I was still using strobes. Not in love with this picture at all, but I like it enough to post it.

And, so that I don’t overload with posts today here is another one from the shoot, with the bear.Which I think I have decided will be an important part of my project.  I am not a huge fan of this picture either, but I like it enough to post, and to give an idea of what I am working towards for those of you who are interested.

I am interested what you all think about these. Let me know what sort of emotion/mood and possible meaning (if any) you could get out of it! That way I can start to figure out if these are total failures. Thanks so much!
