So, anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a huge music junkie. I listen to just about everything and have some interesting favorites. Hip Hop music rules the world, but there’s room for others. Passenger makes some of my favorite music, and “Walk In The Rain” is one of my favorite songs. I remember being super down years ago and looking for music to match that mood (anyone else do that?). When I first started shooting I was in a very low place and this song pulled out deep emotions in me and drove me to create. To this day, the song holds extremely significant meaning to me and drives me to create, and create passionately. Rainy days, though symbolic of many difficult things, have a powerful and special place in my life. Rather than being low and upset on rainy days, I feel introspective and creative. The smell of rain, the sound of rain, the feel of rain.. it reminds me of where I’ve come from. It reminds me that there’s always something to learn. There’s something incredible about the rain that causes us to reflect on life and what’s happening around us and in us. That’s symbolic of life... on sunny days, we’re often blind to the difficulties and stresses of life(that’s not a bad thing, it’s needed and good at many times), but rainy days cause us to think a little deeper. Sunny days, when life’s going good, you know? Rainy days, when life’s challenging us, you know? We need both, and we’re going to experience both. No doubt about that. I’m appreciative of the sunny days, don’t get me wrong, but the rainy days taught, and still teach me about who I am. The rainy days forced me to create. The rainy days make me look deep inside, forcing me to see what I can do to improve and be better. The rainy days help me to enjoy the sunny days. I have to be really honest though, I don’t loathe the rainy days anymore, I actually welcome them... Realizing on the other side of them, a better and stronger me awaits. Hope y’all can catch my thoughts.. Much love & respect.
