Happy Rhythm Collaboration Christy Birmingham and Jolie Buchanan

Take me away to a place that hums with
The same confidence that streams through me, running
From my toes to my wavy hair. I am searching,
And the track is one that has a finish line, I know, yet
I am not close enough to see it.

Take care you, for you are on the same journey,
Only you are a few paces behind me and your mascara is
Streaming down your cheeks.
Take the time to reset and replay the song that moves
Your bones in a happy rhythm.

I will find that place to call home soon – I think the
Chimney there is full of calm and my feet are full of
The warmth I desire when I open that front door.
How is it that the sun is shining and
No one around me understands the questions I am asking?
I will get there soon, and so will your wet cheeks.

Cheers To Creating!

Project One Eighty on Aamora

Photographer Michael Van der Tol launched Project One-Eighty over at www.aamora.com. The project has the artist reviewing one of the pieces of work they have done and asks that the artist do a shift in perspective one-eighty degrees. I was lucky enough not to have to go back and do a re-shoot. As I shot the first capture below, the sound from the crowd sent chills down my arms and I immediately turned around and captured the second photo below. Great idea Michael.

My contribution to the one-eighty project is from a Farm Aid show.  I chose the first capture directly on the stage and the second capture one-eight to the crowd at that show, showing the subject in my first capture on the live view screen as well.
