Day 107 #isolationcreationpartdeux ⠀
Here we are. At the end of #IsolationCreationPartDeux as today France lifts the imposed restrictions and we may now move freely without attestations. I wondered when I began again if I could do it. I asked myself and you all, what will I photograph when the flowers are gone? How will I manage in the short winter’s daylight? The only way I could know these answers was by doing it, facing the fear of failure and challenging myself to look deeper at the invisible things trapped among the empty garden walls. Now we know, even on the darkest of winter days, there is always a little bit of light. Even without the flowers, there is always inspiration waiting to be seen. ⠀
We spent Halloween together, a presidential election, and Thanksgiving. We discovered falling leaves with Eloise and then wondered for weeks “where’d the leaves go?”. Edouard flew into our lives along with surprises like Tony’s roses and Marchesa gowns and all the while, I made something every day to share here with you. It got me through the hours and I hope, some of these images and some of these words did the same for you. ⠀
This finale feels different than the first time. The first one was so joyous, so freeing. It felt "over" and the landscape was ready to be seen again. This finale only feels like a pause, a short breather before we are back at it again. I wish I could say this is the end, but one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned from 2020 is you never really know if anything is certain. ⠀
The landscape rests and now I will too. Thank you for being here with me, thank you for the comments and support. THANK YOU above all for collecting my art and bringing it into your homes. Nothing gives me greater joy than to see a little slice of my world tucked safely away into yours. Thank you, thank you, thank you. ⠀
This final image is simple. After 107 days I could use a drink! (Recipe in stories)⠀
I hope everyone has a safe holiday season as we hold our breaths for spring.
