I have been listening to an amazing, out of this world band (Blue October) with moving and emotional lyrics. We all have things in our past that we attempt or want to forget or pretend never happened. That normally never works but we still attempt to ignore something and bury it thinking it won’t keep popping up time and again. Most people don’t understand that unless you honestly deal with something then it will never go away and some things are hard to just “deal” with, it takes months, years or a lifetime to work through something, especially if it was something you never asked for or expected to happen.
The world is filled with believers who fail to believe,
Forgetting to forgive those who have hurt them,
Getting lost in the doubts and fears,
Of all the things that they worry can never be.
So what is it you are saying or what is it that you want to say? It is like a post I did a while back asking “what is it you really want?” In order to succeed, you first must decide what is it that you really want before you can pursue it with all you have inside of you. If you fail to see what it is you want, then you fail to get it. That is a pretty simple concept right? It is the same if you are not sure what it is you want to say.
Life can’t be the way I see it,
When I turn on the TV screen,
All of the hate and murder,
The things that drive the good away,
It leaves us all empty and wanting more,
Is this the world we live in today?
Do you ever just think, what’s the point? Why am I writing this? Who if anyone is reading? Why do they read? In the long run will anything that I write or say make a difference or even matter beyond the typing and posting? I am not sure that we can even answer it. Were the greats that way because they wrote thinking I am Shakespeare or Poe and my words will live on forever and be studied and analyzed? Do you know that you will matter to history when you are living or are you just living and hoping in the end that is what will happen?
I have been looking and editing my photographs more lately. I set up a Fine Art America site even to promote and try and sell couple of my prints. You can find the link here for my Fine Art America site. I also started a Flickr just to promote my images more. I guess like anything else, you just sort of have to get yourself out there and see what kind of interest you can draw. I feel like I have many different talents and abilities and I am just now trying to see what it all can get me.
So I have been working a bit lately on my photos and I have seen different options around the web. I found a site, follow the link here: Fine Art America Site to my current site. I have uploaded a few of my photos and put them for sale. If you would like any images that I have on this site on there for sale, let me know and I can upload them.
Here are only a few of the ones I have:
I only have a few of them now, but more to come for sure. I hope that y’all enjoy what you see. Always looking for new opportunities and ways to share my art and passion. Thanks all!

No Poetry and no WordPress Makes Michael Do Other Things (What I've been up to lately).
Getting inspired? What are the things that guide you? Where does your creation come from? It seems like a common and almost simple question, but really the things that make us tick or cause us to create are what makes us the individuals we are. It may not matter what that is, but that we allow whatever it is to inspire us.
