Week 6: a girl and her guitar

I'm taking a bit of a risk with this one. It's my favorite shot from the whole batch, but it's monochrome, and I don't usually go with monochrome in these projects. But still, I love it. And to appease the color-seeking minds, a similar version, in color, is in the comments. And as usual, one of the textures is Pareeeerica's and another one is mine. :)


I don't think it's a secret to anyone here, how much I love music. And if you had told me, when I was in college, that I would actually be studying music now, I'd laugh in your face. But life has a way of coming back and biting you in the ass, even with good things, so I have come to realize, lately, that I am incredibly lucky to do what I do now. I study in a school that is welcoming, warm, made incredible friends there and I'm now part of a choir that is made of pure brilliance. I'm taking guitar lessons and voice lessons and I'm getting there, I'm learning and I'm allowing music to be a part of my life.

I have also realized, these past few months, that I have this almost pathological need to express myself. Perhaps that's what makes me an (wannabe!) artist, but I can't just sit and think and listen and not say anything. I need to express myself somehow, that's how I survive. And I have been blessed with the means to do it, whether it's through photography, through writing, through painting or through music. I am unbelievably lucky.

I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful weekend, my darlings. :)
