The other most recent discovery is kind of a fun one. I’m also a drummer. I used to get the most life in my week when my buddy Chris and I would jam together. Now my drums are really far away and I just haven’t found anyone to jam with. I discovered that I am actually creative, and that’s an important outlet for me that’s been starved. I think I denied it a long time here because I was grieving the loss of something precious to me. I’m finally into the state of acceptance and I think God is meeting me in that.
I’m working on a written newsletter that we’d like to mail out to those who we figure would prefer something like that. In switching to video updates, I forgot how much I miss writing! The other part of this is photography. I’ve been watching a few apprentices this year discover their new found love and talent in photography and I thought it looked like fun. So I’ve started exploring this new medium by taking family pictures and manipulating them to look really really rad. What’s in this?
I think the main thing I’ve noticed as I’ve begun looking at this medium is that it speaks to my heart for my family. I want the world to see my family beautiful and vibrant the way I see them. In some ways, I want to promote them. I feel like this process has also given me this neat way of drawing things out of them that are beautiful. As I draw out the sharpness of a picture, I find myself thinking better ways to interact with with them so as to help them in their growth.
So without further ado, here’s the link to a few of those moments.
