Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the black bird.

“One reason that people have artist’s block is that they do not respect the law of dormancy in nature. Trees don’t produce fruit all year long, constantly. They have a point where they go dormant. And when you are in a dormant period creatively, if you can arrange your life to do the technical tasks that don’t take creativity, you are essentially preparing for the spring when it will all blossom again.”

—   Marshall Vandruff, one of the best teachers I have ever had, on artist’s block. Said during a webinar done on Visualarium to advertise his upcoming online course on animal anatomy (source links to webinar)  (via pale-afternoon)

the months go by so fast when you budget. i’m always like, “ok, i can spend this much until next week.” and before i know it, it’s 2 paychecks/4 weeks later. kind of scary

So yeah, this news is about 7hrs old, but I created a portfolio for my photog stuff. Will shoot for coffee. And money. 

New Camera

My new Olympus OM-D E-M1 came in today! 

I’m excited to start shooting with it. It’s such a huge difference compared to my Sony NEX-3. Sometimes I’m surprised at the things that camera was able to shoot. It’s really, really solid for beginners.

Can’t wait to see what the E-M1 has to offer.

A lot of green and blue hues in my life lately!

dream log

i dreamed we were in a world where children were suddenly separated from their parents. this included my sister and me. we lost our parents. people were being killed left and right for no reason.

we found ourselves with an underground group who could track down missing people. they let us monitor the screens. there were satellite trackings of people all over the world. we found 2 dots with our parents’ names on it. we zoomed in. the names were with 2 other dots in a moving car.

they were safe! we sighed with relief. the car slowed down. the 4 dots moved out of the car. it looked like our parents’ names were being carried by the other 2 dots. 

oh no, they must be hurt! it turns out we’re also able to zoom in to see that actual faces. so we zoomed. the dot attached to my mom’s name was in an urn about 3 feet tall… that’s how i knew she was dead. she was inside there. cremated maybe, i don’t know. we switched to our dad’s name. same thing. the people were lugging their urns…

i screamed. as i screamed, i suddenly saw dead people lying all around me. they were lying face up, but they screamed with me. they screamed until their bodies convulsed and their hands were ripping and clawing at the ground. black ooze gushed out from under the soil.

ughhhh. so glad i woke up.
