the forgotten frames || december.


i - xii. several self-portraits to commence the happiness of coming home.
xiii. glasses resting on the piano.
xiv - xv. obnoxious holiday greetings from helayna and i. (there is nothing like shopping with your best friend.)

december: i didn't do much with my camera this month. it's not like there was any particular lack of inspiration, but rather lack of motivation. schedules intensified and priorities ensued, and i didn't forget. i was just doing other things. when i did really pick it up, however, i was sitting on the ledge in grandma and granddaddy's window. for some reason, self-portraits are a safety key. a way to remember that i'm still in this for something. this month was a relief in some ways, and a let down in others. i'm coming to realize my love and my limits, and what they mean. i'm recognizing myself and my feelings and the value i put on my possessions. a lot of things are going on that are really hard to explain in words.
let's suffice to say it's all for a purpose.

the forgotten frames was devised as a way to remember what happened during the year. a mechanism for simple "in review" posts.
i think it's become more than that, and i guess i'm in no position to stop now. incidentally, i did make a resolution this year.
but i'm also resolving to keep it to myself. i advise you all to do the same, depending on your decisions.
please don't feel pressured to do something just because you posted it on social media.
if it starts within you, let it shine. but let it break the fourth wall.

happy new year, kids.

  1. seriously, your gorgeousness. i can't.

  2. mm, your words, darlin'. and your face. i like it.

    and your last lines? perfect. the pressure we feel to do things because other people are doing things, or because we think we should, or said we would is an incredible force; more powerful than we know until we experience it ourselves. it's like we can't help ourselves; trying to be better, instead of being content. not that we shouldn't try to be better, it's just the comparisons that kill us. anyway. you already said it, but your words always speak to me. and i think we should listen to them more, because you're right. as usual.

    i'm still thinking about my resolutions. i had an idea of what i want to do, but i don't want it to be another one of those 'first of the year rash resolutions' that create good intentions, but never have the depth to continue through the year, after the exhilaration fades. i'm thinking. maybe it's something, maybe not. we'll see. ;)

    (and gee whiz, that was a long comment. hope i didn't bore you.)

  3. more photos of yourself?

    1. that's what i do! however there will be some more photoshoots in the future.

    2. You look very different in pictures people take of you vs the ones you take yourself

    3. that's a cool observation. never thought of that before...


sometimes i do not understand why you guys like me so much, but the fact that you do (and that you keep coming around) makes me happier than you can even imagine.
