Music Inspiration Series – She Just Wants To Be

inspiration for today’s post

I’m gonna admit, I took inspiration to do this series from Trouble Dethly’s moments I regret series he is doing. While I have so many regrettable moments in my life, honestly the most defining things about me are my musical moments. So, I decided to recreate moments from my favorite songs, and the emotions they inspire.

“She Just Wants To Be” by R.E.M. is my first one. This song has been one of my top five defining songs for years. I mean, like most of my adult life. It’s my favorite CD, my favorite band, but this song specifically. “It’s not that she walked away, her world got smaller.” The words are so powerful.

I took that feeling of just wanting to be somewhere, anywhere, the feeling of growing too small where you’re at and feeling the wanderlust take over, and put it into an image. I hope you like it.

These Pictures of You

This is a story of love and loss. I chose this medium for my “hate” portrait for the Adams Photo Challenge mostly because it symbolizes the worst and best kind of feeling, the feeling of letting go after you lose someone important to you. 2019 started out as a year of loss for me. It started with losing my partner at the beginning of the year, and losing the people I held closest as family mid-year. However, after that I not only found kinship with a new, amazing group of people I’m proud to call family (I love you Anatines), I also learned to be with myself.

Do I miss the people I am moving on from? Yeah, sometimes, of course. When you care about someone you can’t just turn it off. I wish all of them the best. But, it’s also time to let that shit go and move on with life. Be ready to make new experiences and new mistakes. That’s where I am now. Leaving the hate and hurt in the past and moving on.

Thinking of You

I’ve started trying to gear up for romance because I want to participate in the AdamsPhotoChallenge for February, which is Love/Hate. I don’t think this is the final one that I will use, but I will detail my inspiration behind this particular shoot:

This is the night before a meetup with a lover. The bag’s packed, the plans are made, just the final preparation before leaving the next morning. Makeup is picked out, and taking a few selfies with the kitty before heading out.

It’s a little cheesy, but it’s a first draft. I have another idea or two I want to do for the love version. I think I want to focus more on lonliness for hate, honestly. We will see!

Not Today, Cupid

It’s that time of year again. Valentine’s Day is fast around the corner, and here I am being a crochety dork. Last Valentine’s Day was a season of healing and self-preservation for me, so I didn’t really celebrate. I don’t plan on doing anything special for this year either but it’s ok with me.

I am being auctioned off for charity! You can win a date with me on February 15 (not the date, just the end of the auction) by participating in the Love Games! For more information visit the Camping For a Cure RFL Site.

Lots of rad things are going on, including cupid soon. Here’s a look of the day from recent with some of my cool hauls.
