Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet. ~ Jeremy Bentham
Week Twelve – Athletic: StretchThe 12th photo entry for my weekly Self Portrait Journal. A 52 week glimpse into the attributes of James Olmos.
There’s a few sub attributes in my Athletic category. I thought it would be appropriate to begin with “Stretch”.
To lay our bodies close to the ground – upon the earth, cement, dirt, carpet or gym floor creates a connection to basics. We find ourselves humbled as we bow, bend and find belief in the basics of presence.
As for me, I find myself, eyes closed, breath calmed and concentration focused on the moment . . . the stretch.
Rant and Side Note:
This photo should post under my “humor” category” since it looks like I have midget legs! This is the result of my creative process as I learn how to enjoy the different pixel abusing techniques. Don’t judge – I’ll get there soon enough 🙂
Life isn’t about reaching goals it’s about finding peace during the journey. I put my shit out there whether it’s good or bad because I’m at peace with my creative moments. Let it all go and love yourself today.
