Rebellious Attitude…Artistic State of Mind

The Path’s Edge

I am considering this another attempt at a self portrait. I’m on this kick to take a picture of myself every day. It’s a self study kind of thing where I journal afterwards. It really works my creativity and I almost always walk away learning something new.

Today I learned one armed self portraits are hard.

After several attempts at trying different angles and lighting, I finally got a decent shot of my new triquetra tattoo. In case you don’t know, my family is very interested in our Celtic heritage.  Several of us have more than one tattoo that highlights our favorite ancient Celtic symbols in someway. The triquetra has significant meaning to me and for those of you who watch Charmed I did not intend for the this to represent the Power of Three from that show. Sorry.

Some sources say the triquetra (in latin:  tri=three and quetrus= corner) in its ancient form symbolizes a never ending knot or a path one may take in life that returns to it’s beginning. That is one of my reasons for choosing this symbol. Over twenty years ago I wanted to pursue photography as a career, but ended up taking a more “practical” approach to making a living. Today, my path has come full circle and I am pursuing that passion daily. Most days I am in awe when I see that Frayed Edge is taking on a path of its own. I can’t wait to see where it leads.
