I think mirrors are the perfect symbol for the mind. It's all an illusion, a reflection of the world but it can be warped by a number of things. It encapsulates you for a moment but it's not a perfect reflection. It gives a perspective but if I look at myself from one angle for too long it can become tiring and draining. I need to step back from it. I tend to ignore mirrors or glance and move along but I can't ignore my mind.
I'm doing a lot of thinking about the lack of time for creativity in my life and how that has affected my mood overall. I have a roll in my film camera that's half used, sometimes I think 36 frames is too much. 24 seems more manageable to me. I don't want to waste shots just to complete a roll since film is expensive to buy and develop but that's just part of the process to grow and learn as an artist. Gotta make mistakes. I might try out some 35mm colour film. I need to purchase more instant film as well. I recently saw a post on a beautiful mess about collage/scrapbooking and it reminded me of how much I want to start doing that. I collage digitally (rarely nowadays) but would also like to physically create little art books or scrapbooks of collages. I want as many creative outlets as possible.
