I took this last Monday off from work, a sort of mental health day I would call it. I cleaned the house, worked on some art projects, listened to records, and made this delicious meal. It is always sort of a wake up call for me when I have a day off just to be home by myself. I realize quite strongly that I spend most of my life doing something that I don't love.
I love my job, as a job, but not as a way to live my life. If that makes any sense? It doesn't make me feel the way I do after a photo shoot, after I finish a craft project, or after I have time to make a healthy meal. It just doesn't give me that same spark that doing things with my hands gives me. To make something out of nothing, that is what really brings me joy.
So, I had sort of a bitter sweet day off trying to appreciate every inch of my lovely life and also trying to be honest with myself about where I hope I can be in the future. Where is that? Home, I want to be home and make everything in my life out of nothing! Food, clothing, accessories, relationships, so on and so on...
For these photos I experimented with using low light settings and I just love how all the vegetables pop! Almost like the vitality and nutrition is seeping out of them.
