I am in an artistic rut... I feel like being creative, like taking photos and painting but I am working so much that I am using my free time as recovery time instead of creative time. This is going to change. I am going to be posting a minimum of five times this May.
I am excited to challenge myself to take advantage of my creative energy that has been going to the wayside.

5 and a half years ago I took this photo. A funny, spontaneous moment with my boisterous dad on an average afternoon walk with my family. When he passed away a few months later those silly moments all but disappeared. I lost my father and my family lost its joie de vivre. He brought humour and laughter into every situation, encounter and disagreement and when he died so did the corny jokes. I thought that this lightheartedness might be gone forever but as the grief begins to fade I am able to see him and his spirited pursuit of happiness all around me. I recently tok a trip to Tofino with my sister and mother where we went on a walk along the beach which turned into a puddle splashing good time. It was nice to see that despite the adversity we have faced as a family these happy, hilarious moments are still possible. He will live on as long as we continue to embrace life with the same sense of merriment.

This is a very old photo from my time in South Africa. I love how the palm tree tattoo on the surfer dude feels very "hawaii". When really this photo was taken thousands of kilometres away from that world. I guess it reminds that the island lifestyle can be embodied anywhere.

The next week I will be in Maui which I am super stoked about. Though it might seem like an odd time for a trip to the islands it is usually pretty brisk in June in Vancouver so it will be a nice change to have those hot summer days and nights.

Walking down the beach last weekend I just happened to look down before stepping on this amazing starfish. When I thought about it I had never seen one that wasn't broken etc. Its nice when things can pop up and surprise you at any moment.

After a long break due to being way too busy with work, school and life I am back at it!
It feels so good to be be creative again. This burst of creative energy has had me taking more photos and even thinking of getting back into painting! In the coming weeks Im going to be posting some random photos from over the last couple of months which will hopefully make up for me being AWOL.
