I like this picture, because it plays with perception and permanence. It's ephemeral, yet it lasts. What is the foreground? What is a reflection? I like its depth and its not-quite-clearness. It also represents how I feel right now. In a transitional space. Not quite here or there. No quite grounded. To borrow a phrase from a friend, I'm working on establishing my "new normal."
This transition has been both harder and easier than I imagined, both extremes in ways that I did not anticipate. It's taken longer to reground myself. I'm grieving the losses from this move. Yet it's been shockingly easy to adjust to the back-to-the-office routine. Life without a car has been no trouble (even fun!).
It's a big mish-mash of stuff. I ask myself: What is the foreground? What is a reflection? I try to mine this depth and see into the not-quite-clearness.
