What You Ache For

As I move forward with another year I would like to keep this quote in mind that I came across recently. 

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living,
I want to know what you ache for.

I want to know if you are willing to risk looking like a fool
for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and truly
like the company you keep in the empty moments of life.
Life ain't always easy as we all surely know by now. The best I can do is stay strong, keep my passions in the forefront of my mind and take no prisoners, as my dad so often reminds me. I can't please everyone and at the end of the day all that matters is that I'm at peace with myself. I made these images recently as I was going through all of my photos from the past year. It's crazy how much my overlaid images have changed and stayed the same since I first started doing them last summer. I can only gleam with anticipation where my work will be a year from now.
