Time, Tides, and the Twitterati

#365SelfDiscovery

I had a whole night of dreams, it seems. Or maybe it was one long one, I’m not sure. I’ve got all these jumbled, disconnected, disjointed images floating around in my skull this morning, and I’m not getting them sorted out before they fade. Ah well. Some of them are quite pleasant, some more like memories, and some I can’t make heads or tails of. There were no nightmares I can remember.

I slept nearly through the night last night, though, so that was good. I only woke up once for about a half hour, then went back to sleep. That’s been pretty rare lately, so I’ll take it and hope it’s the start of a trend. Happy daylight savings time, by the way.

Time is a funny thing, and our perception of it is even stranger. People and things come and go in our lives, like the tide, but we’re always living right now. In some ways, it’s hard to believe it’s only been a few months since the end of last year, but in other ways, simultaneously, it’s hard to believe it’s been so long ago. They say that time heals all wounds. I’d argue that time doesn’t heal the wounds, just makes them easier to live with. …or maybe less difficult. That’s certainly true of my spinal injury from a decade ago. I don’t really hurt less, I’ve just learned to live with it. I work around it. I avoid doing the things, or doing the things the way, that aggravate the pain.

And that’s why I’ve mostly stuck to retweets and tweets about this project on Twitter. I miss my Tweeps, and I’ll be back. Just not yet.

 


 

To repeat the disclaimer, this is a project about re-discovery. It’s about remembering who I am, what I’m about, what I love and what I do not. Fair warning, this project will be posted here rather than at my SFW site because there will be nudity from time to time. Some of it will be of me, some not, some artistic and pretty to look at, some just raw.

I don’t intend to think of something every day and then shoot it, though I may do that sometimes, too. But sometimes I will just shoot, and then find something about myself in the frames and post about that thing, whatever it is.

All my #365SelfDiscovery posts will be filed here.
