In this post I’m catching up on the Weekly Photo Challenge, which I missed last week because of some lack of photographic inspiration and emotional turmoils… Anyway, I’m fine today 🙂 So here we go!
Weekly Photo Challenge: Close
As you have seen in my previous post, I’ve been drawing lately, and because I don’t have any photos inspired by ‘close’ – or if I do I don’t want to post them I guess because of some kind of reason my conscience has… – I’m going to show you my latest and completed drawing:
How can this relate to ‘close’?
Well first of all, obviously this is a close-up drawing of my face (lol! in my own drawing style) showing my main inner demon: shyness. It can be an asset of course because when one is shy, one tends to be careful about what should be said or done… but being too shy – like me – is deadly harmful.
Sometimes I’m way too shy and this causes walls to be built up around me. And it’s hard to let anyone in…
Insecurity problems? Maybe, I don’t know.
It is said that it has to have bloomed from something that happened in childhood… but I just can’t remember anything that could have make it that way…
Anyway, although I sometimes find myself unable to fit in because of the walls and I’m thus frustrated as I can’t get any closer or let anyone get closer (yes they are in italics because that’s how I related the drawing to the theme of ‘close’), I fight everyday. I try to break through the walls every time I can, and everyday I get a little closer to overcoming this harmful shyness of mine 🙂
And today I took some bricks out of the walls because today I did something that requires much courage and give up shyness. ^^ And I feel so happy! So relieved!
Now, some more bricks to go…
Weekly Photo Challenge: Create
Drawing unleashes creativity… as much as writing!
♥ I love black pencils ♥
Splashes of colours! Painting – canvas or nails – is a great source of creativity!
And because we’re talking of creativity here, I’d like to share with you a little piece of fiction, which is the sequel of Your Eyes… And Mine and again inspired by this week’s Picture it & Write hosted by Ermilia’s Blog:
The cold breeze wash out my face with droplets of salty water as I stood on the deck of the ship that would lead me to my European vacation spots. I was thrilled to discover more about my continent: admire Paris, wonder in Italy…
My black cat, Shadow, purred and curled itself around my ankle.
I didn’t want to be reminded of this, but yes, this trip didn’t have the sole purpose of discovering new lands, but it was a way to escape my current life which is buzzing with torment thanks to my never-stop-working mind.
I longed to escape from my mundane life for some time. I longed to escape from this dark-haired guy, Caleb.
Since the day our eyes met, I found myself unable not to think of him. Despite myself, I was in love with him.
But our love was impossible. A few days ago, the play of our drama club was performed. The adventure was over. Thus, I might not see him again. Soon, the holidays would end and I would have to get back to college.
And bye bye gorgeous Caleb with the dark mysterious eyes…
I. Had. To. Stop. It.
As I watched the silent waves of the sea being hit by the ship, I thought of my peaceful life, being hit by love at first sight. And I stared as the now agitated waves, boiling with anger, trying to get away from the boat as quickly as possible and head for the beach miles away, wondering if I would be able to reach the beach myself…
Or will he haunt me as long as I live?
An Evil Nymph.
