  • Nurturing the Creative Self

    Jeremy black and white in down light twisted torsoToday I am back to shooting on The Naked Man Project.  I have a young man I meet last week coming in and I am very excited to be working with him.  I desperately need a strong connection to an exploration of my own self expression today.  I had a brutal week that has wreaked havoc on all elements of my being: physical, mental, and emotional.  I am like a wounded soul that is crying out in the darkness.  Thursday last I began to get sick with sinus congestion.  Everything I tried all my regular remedies and nothing seem to work.  It got worse and I was completely miserable forcing me to take several days off.  Finally about mid-week as it began to subside and I returned to work and I was driving home I hit a deer full on going about 65  to 70 on the interstate,   devastating my car, setting off the airbags, and smashing my face.  I then spent the next couple of days dazed, unable to focus and concentrate, suspended, drifting in a state of oblivion.  I need something to ground me.  This is the first morning I have felt normal.  It feels odd to be so out of touch with myself for so long.  It was serendipitous that I happen to have this photo shoot scheduled for this afternoon, right when I need it the most.  I have not shot for this project in some time and I awake this morning excited to return to it.  I’ve had so many thoughts and ideas floating in my head that I have needed to explore and express.  I realize connecting to others on this level has such a profound impact on my emotional well being.  My expression through creation is nurturing and comforting.   It connects me to a deeper side of myself.  Somehow in the studio I am able to release all that self-doubt, fear, and anxiety.
