You can’t put her in a cage and expect her song to be about you. – JM Storm
This is the third time I’ve posted an image of our old, vacant birdhouse. The very first time was in black and white.
I did the old “make it look like a painting” editing job again, and I think I figured out why I’m so stuck on that lately. I’ve never been able to draw or paint. I guess I like to do something to my images that gives them that artsy feel because it’s something that I can’t do by hand. That being said, isn’t technology just wonderful!
Anyway, I was outside and that same Japanese Maple tree (with the spider web), where the birdhouse hangs, was letting the sun shine through like a spotlight on that little, old, weathered home. So… I couldn’t resist.
The quote came up when I was looking up sayings about birdhouses. I guess it’s like a cage- in a sense. 😉
I actually really like the quote. No offense to all the happily married people out there, but for me personally it makes me appreciate my “singleness” and freedom. It took a lot of effort for me to refrain from dating because my old beliefs were that a man would “make me whole”. That’s before I found God, of course.
Anyway, now that I’ve got my new mindset in place, it’s so nice to be able to focus on my recovery, my walk with God, art, photography and writing. And no crazy love drama that I was so used to creating. It’s a new “ME” and I really like the way it feels!
That’s about all for now. Off to writing class…
Peace! Love you guys!
