But, there are stages in which we must request solitude. Solitude from the everyday undertakings of misfortunate fortunes we can sometimes breathe without.
We are miraculously forced to feel as if we need to be in, in order to be whole, when solitary is where we can finally hear our thoughts speak free and our soul's seek reach.

Muspiration: Lupe Fiasco "Blur My Hands"
Since moving to Los Angeles Ive been in a bit of a creative blockade. I haven't been shooing as much as Id like or creating randomly like I used to and I cant blame anyone but myself. Yes there are circumstances in life that cause your creativity to become a bit stale or unexciting, but it is a must you remain on track. Today, clouds, fog and no sun, I feel like a new person. I feel like I am capable and being capable is all that matters. I used to feel like I couldn't be great and it wasn't because I couldn't be, it was because I let life's uncontrollable circumstances make me feel like such. I used to write in my journal every night explaining to God and myself how incapable I was and I really focused on the negative aspects of life. Even now I am a new resident of a city I don't really know much about, I have to be out of my current place in two weeks, Im only working part time, my car is home and it cost a bit to get it to me, I don't know where Ill be living in two weeks, nor if I have the money to do so. However, the shit feels great. My life is awesome in so many more ways than what I just listed. My goal in life is to create emotional content for people to look at. And its as simple as that.
I hope you choose to do the same!
Oh these are photos I took back in Philadelphia before I left with my great friend Zamani Feelings and artist Noel. It was her energy in these photos that motivated this post.
There is this thing given to us that we will not always know what to do with. There are those who take full advantage of it and those who choose to watch it wither. Some fight and die for what is given and others will never have to lift a finger nor comprehend the concept of struggle. Though these factors of the past and unknown will never be understood, it is our duty to do the best that we can with what we have. Our God has chosen us for reasons we only dream of, not knowing whats concluded.
Whilom I stepped in to a fortune unknown. I was blindly guided to a highs highest height. I was told by the unknown that there was no destination. That if I could only just feel my way through the groundless footsteps of my stride that I would no longer worry. It was mentioned by repetition and never feared by precaution as I was cautioned to never be cautious. A day like todays rains only guided me further as it only blurred what was right in front of me and never what I couldn't see. Which already was. There were no roads, no miscellaneous prints of mystery to show the slights bit of possibility. On the way I was tamed timeless by the beautified obscurities that would secure who I was and never when. It happened......
