@bensasso, one of my biggest inspirations as of lately said, “Art is more about the artist than the technique,” and it’s stuck with me ever since. Sometimes I feel like I don’t share enough of my work or about my process on here. So if you want to know more about who I am as a creative, I’m doing the question thing in my stories. Or you can just comment on this picture and ask me something. Or you can just tell me something about yourself or your work. Or you could just message me because friendship and collaboration are way cooler then any of those combined.

Do you ever see a rock and think... That’s a cool freakin’ rock. Because same. Nature is so incredible.

I’m feeling super weird lately. And I’m feeling like work is super weird lately. And art. And social media. And pretty much just life in general. And I don’t care who knows. Who’s with me? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And a lust for life keeps us alive

Some of you may know that this is the photograph I have tattooed on my arm, but most of you probably don’t know why. This photo was taken during what has become one of my favorite memories. The day I took this photograph, I remember feeling that for the first time in my life, I was looking at things with my eyes wide open. It was my, “ah-ha,” moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I couldn’t really explain it then and I can’t really explain it now. I remember taking hundreds of photographs of the landscape. I was desperately trying to capture what I was feeling.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although, I now realize that I couldn’t do this because I wasn’t falling in love with anything specific. It wasn’t a certain gust of wind that took my breath away. Honestly, it wasn’t even close to the perfect day. It was cold. It was raining. Our van literally broke down on the way up the mountain. But when we got there, it was so damn beautiful. Years later, I realize that what I fell in love with was simply life itself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Clingman’s Dome, you’ve got a piece of my heart. And technically speaking, my arm as well. I’m not sure why I wanted to share this, but I’m glad I did. If you’ve got an, “ah-ha,” moment of your own you’d like to share, let’s talk about life. Happy Friday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Social media makes it easy for us to get caught up in thinking about what’s right and what’s wrong about our lives. But the truth is, life isn’t meant to be perfect.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m a little bit all over the place. I’ve always got too much on my plate. My hair is never done and I rarely wear make up.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But one thing I try to always do is live my life with a smile and enjoy whatever craziness is going on. Sometimes you just won’t get the perfect photo no matter how hard you try. Sometimes the wind will pick up just so you remember to enjoy the moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes we need to be reminded of what matters and what doesn’t. Life is weird that way. Enjoy your Wednesday, friends.

I try my best to remain present in the moment. But sometimes, even when you can feel the magic in a moment, you don’t know all that it’ll teach you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The morning I took this, I woke up before sunrise and hiked to the dock by myself. There were hundreds of buzzards in the trees, but the fog was so thick that I couldn’t see them until the sun rose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There was something special about the way the fog moved. Minutes after this shot, it cleared away and the sun began shining through the mist. In life, it’s important to remember that once the fog clears, sunshine will soon follow.

Do you ever have one of those days where you’re just like... “Wow, life is weird.” Today I’m having some of those Monday blues, so here’s a photo I took back in the mountains. It serves me as a reminder of the beautiful, simple things in life that make everything else seem pretty damn unimportant.
