As I was writing in my journal this morning, I began to think about how I miss shooting street photography, something I regularly did before the pandemic. Like many things that enter my mind these days, I started working on a poem and art based on how I love watching people and how they interact in their bubbles of space. There is so much beauty and mystery in their movements and expressions. I pull from my mental toolbox and Theory of Mind to ascertain their thoughts and feelings.
Oh, the joy of early Saturday morning coffee and working on side projects, our little labors of passion and love. Many have written about the importance of having a side project from both a personal and professional perspective. I call them little experiments, a little of this, and a little of that in a never-ending pursuit of personal growth and development.
