Without context, one image of one moment can tell many stories. This one for example, could tell one of isolation, loneliness, or abandonment. Or maybe the vulnerability of being out of one’s element and completely exposed. However since I was there, I can say this is a story of freedom and truly living life to the fullest. Hiking over jagged, skin piercing rocks swarming with crabs. Finding caves tucked underneath hillsides. Being swept in and out by the swelling currents. Breaking free to float in the soft, clear openness, unhinged from a single thought, worry, or responsibility.
As storytellers, making this choice is what it means to wield our powers to shape a message that can lift up the spirit or shut it down. Sometimes it’s easiest to pull our own story forward to make it official record, or gravitate to the one we believe will get the most attention and press the most buttons. But it’s more important than ever that we approach the medium with this consciousness, for we know very little the residual ripples produced by the works we create.
