A few months back we had a house project that I must have whined about. Hem hawed. I don't want to do it. And AdRi looked me directly in the eye and said, "We are strong, capable women. Come on. We can do this." And I knew she was right.
I used to believe that all of the time. I can do this. What happened? When did I become soft? Have I become the woman who screams at bees? Who looks at projects of manual labor and whines for help? God I hope not. But I don't know. AdRi's simple statement, her reminder, awakened the woman inside of me. (And no, I didn't spell that womyn, thank you.) It shook me. Now? I'm all about the work. The camping. The garden. The canning. The picking. The harvesting. The work. The creating. The running my own business. We can do this.
And it's the same with blogging. I feel like I've gone soft. Too much mindless surfing. Twittering. Scanning. Reaction and trigger pulling. Not enough life, and simple reflection of life. Not enough carrying my camera with me and just capturing.
So this week is all about the photos. And connections. Is it possible to connect across the world through photography? I believe there is. And we'll find out here on this blog, as a reflection of life, of my imagination, of my world. I am a strong, capable woman. I can do this.
