In Inspiration

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”
Masaru Emoto, Secret Life of Water

A photography practice is a lot like a lotus flower, growing out of a muddy mess, blooming in the darkest of nights, and then withstanding its surroundings resilient and strong while maintaining it’s amazing beauty. Your work is beautiful my friends. Allow it to grow, messy and free, in any way that it can.

“Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.
Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty. Be that lotus flower always. Do not allow any negativity or ugliness in your surroundings destroy your confidence, affect your growth, or make you question your self-worth.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun

Wishing you a March filled with strength and beauty!
