As I thought through this week’s theme, I couldn’t help but think about the topic metaphorically. I kept thinking about things held back or put away. I kept thinking about all the images I have held back because they weren’t technically strong enough, color corrected well enough, generally good enough. Images I’ve kept “on the shelf”. Images that sit on my hard drive. Images like this one:
I also took this line of thinking one step further to think about other things I am keeping “on the shelf”. The things I am telling myself I’m too busy, tired, overwhelmed to pursue. The dreams that whisper to my heart – the ones I am too afraid to acknowledge. Set aside some time this week to think about it. What’s on your shelf?
