Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” — Coco Channel
How big is your freedom these days? Do you say what you want to say? Or do you self-censor because maybe it’s not politically correct or it may offend in some way? Do you think we are more free or less free to say what we really want to say?
In writing, and photography, and art in general do you create what’s in your soul or what you think people want to hear, read, see, or purchase?
I have made a decision in my life and in my art. I’m going to say what I mean to say. I just am. People came to this great country so they could carve out their own destiny and control their own life and be who they were born to be, not who those in power say they ought to be.
I see in this world a great need for those in power to CONTROL those of us who choose not to be. I don’t need it. I don’t want it. I just want my freedom to be me.
What does freedom mean to you? Is it a big idea bigger than all of us? Or is it an attribute to be handed out to us incrementally by those who claim they know what’s best for us?
Would love to know your thoughts on FREEDOM in art, in your choices, in your faith, in your life, and where you live.
Say what you want to say. Be who you truly are–the destiny God set upon you before you were here. Be free to create something beautiful and true today.
Freedom! Cherish it always!
“The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.” Gloria Steinem
