aftermath


Stand, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

wow...a year...one year..i remember last year like it was yesterday on Thanksgiving..usually i can't remember the previous years festivities, but I think this year was so drastically different that it was easy..different in so many ways..all of this is good, some of it means missing my family, but for the most part, this day was a perfectly divine and peaceful one and full of new family and persons that are amazing to be with. I am a lucky man for sure. I have had some time away from this blog (ha...like two days or something, but it seems like a long time...) I find myself so connected with my writing and thoughts that it is hard to contain them..I am working on my book each day and it is opening doors that are scary to walk through and thoughts that are sometimes not comfortable, but the process is like a blog on crack...and i like that...it forces you to have some direction, but also to let things go and really trust the process and not rely on the end product. I do not know how long it will be, how many pictures, or if it will be good...i do know that by doing it, i am freeing my inner thoughts on a new level...i have a huge respect for writers who actually tell a story and for writers who have the courage to write at all...and for all those that have come before me and paved the way with bravery and courage to write...(Swirly gets special props on this one!!) All of this..the pieces of the puzzle, the challenge, the journey..it is what delights me and scares the crap out of me...so there. I had to write today because i missed it....

Love and Understanding.

I have a very sure feeling that your "blog on crack" is going to be absolutely stunning. I am sure everyone who knows you feels this way and knows this. You are so brave.... XOXOXO

It is a good sign if it is at least a little bit scary. :)

You go Justin, I think letting lose and feeling vunerable is the mark of an artist. It doesn't mean we have to be vunerable, it doesn't mean weakness, but the opposite, that you are strong enough to be true, strong enough to walk the edge.

The very things that 'scare the crap out of you' will probably be the very things that 'birth a book out of you.'
