Black Live Matter Protest – Manchester,CT

In black lives matter, community, Manchester, personal, Photography, Uncategorized on June 6, 2020 at 5:33 PM

Some photos of the Black Lives Matter protest in Manchester, CT today.  It was a peaceful and beautiful event with inspiring speakers of all ages. I’ve been thinking about ways I can continue to use my voice to be an ally – and I know that art of any kind is a powerful medium to communicate through. If I can use photography to help give anyone a voice who wants to also be an ally to the black community, and create positive change – please reach out to me and we’ll figure out a way to stand together. I’ve been musing an idea for an art project on my own – but I’d like to hear what’s needed rather than just what I think might be a good idea.

I’m still here . . .

A quick hello to let you know I’m still here and can’t wait to work with you again . . .

 

Two quick ways you can use reflex points at home to help manage anxiety. Let me know how they work for you.

Keeping Quiet

Self-care for me today meant … walking in the woods, taking pictures, saying hello to strangers and  their playful puppies and … reading poetry. What did it look like for you?

 

                                                       

Keeping Quiet

by Pablo Neruda

“Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still
for once on the face of the earth,
let’s not speak in any language;
let’s stop for a second,
and not move our arms so much.

It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines;
we would all be together
in a sudden strangeness.

Fishermen in the cold sea
would not harm whales
and the man gathering salt
would not look at his hurt hands.

Those who prepare green wars,
wars with gas, wars with fire,
victories with no survivors,
would put on clean clothes
and walk about with their brothers
in the shade, doing nothing.

What I want should not be confused
with total inactivity.

Life is what it is about…

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with
death.

Now I’ll count up to twelve
and you keep quiet and I will go.”

End of the day
in a place I only had
a few moments in.
Excited because the light was pretty.
Anxious because I was with 
three people and two dogs
who are not photographers
or artists – who were being patient but also,
wanted to move along.
They don’t know how quickly
the light changes
or how long it’s been
since I’ve felt inspired
to capture something.
This is making many photos quickly …
rather than going slowly, looking at
angles and perspectives, or
waiting to feel moved
by the subject.
Just hoping one will turn out OK.
