Lately I've been thinking about the power of the written word, the power of images. The effect we have on each other, good or bad. We can feel when someone is angry with us, we really can feel it. It hurts us. We can also feel when we are loved.
We are more connected to each other, I believe, than we can begin to understand. It may even be possible that we can heal each other with our thoughts.
By chance, Pearl just happened to write something tonight that was exactly what I was thinking, that I was about to post about. It was in relation to Roz: "I do hope all our kind thoughts can sent positive energy to Roz and that she is back on her feet as soon as possible." And that's why I brought her hyacinths: they had no scent, but they will, in a day or so, and I was hoping that the scent would somehow help the healing process.
That's why I'm doing this post now: I want to send some positiveness Shini's way.
The thing about Shini is, she is one of the most creative, imaginative, talented people I know. She styles herself as if she were a three dimensional painting, or a composer, or a brilliant chef: she takes ingredients and whips them around and just gets the balances and proportions so right, even tho if you analyse it intellectually, it shouldn't work. When I saw her that day, what I got at first was an overall impression, and it was only as I started shooting that I realised for example, that she'd paired one top over another dress.. the sum of the parts becomes greater than the parts.
While I was going through these images of Shini the other night we were also emailing, and I realised she's going through a challenging time. I'm posting these now as a way of sending special rogue magic fairy dust good luck superhero powers. Let's see, in a week or so, if it works.
