Are you upset my little shadow? Have you been lying awake all night with no inner light to keep you company? Well, don’t worry my friend… I’m here. The flood waters will recede; the famine will end; the sun will shine tomorrow; and I will always be here to take care of you.
With the approach of another “Happy New Year”, some of us become once more aware of loneliness and time, two companions without whom no journey can yield us anything. And at the innermost core of all loneliness is a deep and powerful yearning for union with one’s lost self.
It is cruel, in many ways, that photograpny and music should be so beautiful. They both have the beauty of strength and freedom. But also the beauty of loneliness and pain; the beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love; and the cruel and everlasting beauty of nature and monotony.
From in between the notes and the pixels, I dedicate this image to all the lonely people in the world. Hope the new year brings us all back to reaching out not with our hands, but with our hearts (youtube clip below)
