My bags are packed (mostly) my alarm clock set (checked twice already) and I’m ready to welcome in my time of surrender and trust. My camera sits here next to me, snug it’s bag, and I feel it is watching me woefully as it’s not coming along on this particular journey.
Deciding not to take my camera has actually been a very interesting test in surrendering. I feel my control issues arise in thoughts of ‘what ifs’ and ‘why nots’. My egoic voice keeps nudging me, and honestly sometimes gets close to winning. Luckily I have caught it in time and politely tell it ‘thank you now please go away’.
I taught my Art of Intuitive Photography class at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this afternoon, and I was reminded again of how hard I’ve worked to trust my intuition in my life and in my art form. I embrace this trip as an opportunity to live intuitively, and to live in the moment. I am now ready to travel, to trust, and to surrender.
