Wow.

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 11, 2014, 10:00 AM
Gallery | Watch Me | Note Me | Facebook

I am both surprised and touched by the messages I received after I decided to close down my Facebook and DeviantArt account as well as my other social media accounts.

I hadn't realized so many of you came to my page for inspiration and hope. Some of your messages made me tear up, some made me laugh, others just left me speechless.

All the time I was sharing myself, to grow from critique and to better understand myself. I enjoyed looking at the sort of work my followers made, and seeing what their lives were like, and seeing what they found beautiful or eventful or just wanted to share because they could.

After reading all of the messages, I've decided to keep my DeviantArt account active. I will still be deleting my Facebook though.

Thank you everyone, and I guess this journey is still going.

You've convinced me.

<3

You are to photography what Amelia Earhart is to flight. We are greatly inspired by your photography, and your writings! And your loss...though legendary...would be devastating. DON'T YOU GO FUKKEN LEAVING US IN YOUR FIRST WORLD FLIGHT!!!

That being said, I (we?) shall do my part to let you know more often how much your work inspires me.

Carry on! (please!)

I can't believe I'm saying this; "When I was a kid" - We did all that you mentioned by going out the front door and physically interacting with other people. I can't help but wonder how differently your generation will evolve having inserted electronic devices between themselves and the rest of the world.

I'm out in the real world too, but there's a far deeper level of connection when it comes to art. Also, it's hard to connect with the world when you have no money for travel, so this is the next best thing to understanding people in different countries. :)
