bringing in the new year with photographs

happy new year bulb followers!

reynolds & i celebrated the new year with photographs.
although that's pretty much how we celebrate everything!

the topic was "fluid".
i didn't really write anything to accompany my image.
i think it is because every time i hear the word
i am brought back to my early days as an archivist.
my first assignment was to scan and retouch transparencies
of andres serrano photographs... the body fluids series is beautiful,
but the subject matter is a bit disturbing!
i feel like that memory might have blocked my writing this week.

don't worry.
craig reynolds still has something to say...

I like how people try to control things. It makes me laugh. Like water. No matter how many dams they put up, eventually water will go where it wants to go. Where it needs to go. Trying to impart any type of rigid rules into it is asking for trouble. Water is mean to flow. Instead of trying to control it, why don't we work with it. I try to live my life that way, flowing with what comes. I learned a long time ago that when I go against that principal, eventually my life will go right where it needs to go. So at any time, I'm exactly where I'm suppose to be.
