Consumption Overcome

To avoid the fires of her past she retreated to a watery haven. She waited there and whenever she saw a threat she would sing a stringy note, turning herself into the threatening thing. They would come to her, hypnotized, but she was not what they had expected: they were all left consumed.

Then one day, she saw someone different, so she sang something different. Rather than getting caught in the song trap, he came to her and saw who she was. He took her to shore. No longer did she have to tread water and no longer did she have to fear fire.

She could be, finally.

In summation without the muddle of metaphor, she loved him and he loved her. It was plain and simple, and what she had been waiting for, to get out of that water.

To have the feeling of completion without consuming or being consumed.


Thank you, D Atwood Photography.

I think you have to surrender yourself to your art. Let it take you away. Let it do with you what it will. Try things that feel weird like laying in a bathtub full of water with all your clothes on because once you start trusting your instincts, that’s when your art starts to take off. To run away with you. It forgets your reservations and your insecurities and in the process you start to a little bit, too.

It’s difficult because it’s uncomfortable and emotional, but it’s really the only way.

Thank you, once again, D Atwood Photography.
