inspired by the words of Ronan Harris

‘These are not words, they’re only feelings.
There are no sounds that you can hear.
There is no form that you can touch.
There are no colours for you to see.

The only sound is a distant thunder.
A tempest rages so far away from me.
I walked for miles and I started running
towards the sound and storm where you might find me.

And I ran until I had the feeling
that the Tempest I had heard surrounded me.
Here my heart still so filled with loving
cried out and told of wonders that I feel.

Here my heart is so filled with loving.

And I tell myself, I keep repeating
that your ways are bringing you to me.
And I tell myself, I keep repeating
that your ways are bringing you to me.

And I tell myself, I keep repeating
that your ways are bringing you to me,
that I will find my true salvation,
that these ways of mine are bringing you to me.

Because here my heart so filled with loving
crying out the wonders that I feel.
Here I will find my true salvation
and my ways are bringing you to me

And I tell myself, I keep repeating
that your ways are bringing you to me’

I am a self taught photographer and everything artist. For me this is meditation and medication!
I want to invade your mind or strike a cord in your heart with what I do. I do this for ME and those I love.

    Powerful, visceral and strangely provocative. The more disturbing elements give this image a great edge! Love the emotional and visceral textures. Well done, beautiful muse! XO
