Hurt.


I know there will come a time when 
we leave this plane onto another.

 Until then, we have 2 pretend while putting off the pain.
May not be what we want but it's what we need for
sometimes the only way around it is 2 let love do it's work. 

It's been nearly 6 years since losing 
sister Vivian & here we are again 
with another shattering loss. 

My eldest sister "Jackie" battled cancer for several 
years & left us September 10, 2016.
She was known for being extra assertive yet kind. 
Silly but stern.... 
Guess you can say that she had the 
most perfect balance of everything.

Though she was unable fulfill her dream of establishing 
an inner city resource center, she was able 2 make 
a name for herself as a vocal leader for 
those who couldn't be heard.
It was pretty apparent who the 
hands down leader was over the years 
growing up in the Weddington home. 

We just knew it was gonna be alright cause 
she was always there.
(sigh!!)

....Now the time 2 fully stand on my own.



Rest in peace big sister.
We love you.



Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

RebelHeart.


Off again on another one of 
those random Tammy moments. 
This time we end up on a camping excursion 
with kayaks & all. 

Large bodies of water over 10 feet 
makes me nervous so keeping 
it on dry land is the very 
best option here...

besides, who else could shoot the video?
  (lol whatever).

Taking this trip was more so for 
Miss Tammy who needed some much 
needed time away from the noise. 

Funny 2 say, this particular spot is 
known for weekend parties, 
speed boats, beer & thangs so 
quiet was occasional. 



Regardless, it did the trick....

for now.




Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

NoWorry.

After picking up the new ride 
from the local dealership, 
we did the obvious...

Drive.
with the trusty Canon of course;)


That's right, straight through 
the streets of Portland.
No destination, just wherever 
the wind take us.
It's usually better that way.
Come 2 think of it, 
I don't think there's ever been a 
time when we followed 
a actual plan.
"Just wing it man."

Welcome 2 my world.

Oh yeah!




Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

RedBank.

I've never really had a chance 2 
appreciate the sights around 
the block so decided 2 stroll 
through the RedBank. 
 Since the day is nice why not enjoy it....right?

First off, made my way through 
the central gym then 
over 2 the local community center
& convience store where I've never laid a foot.
(no reason, just haven't.)


Seems pretty ordinary, 
nothing special but with the trusty Canon 
maybe...just maybe I could find a way 2 capture something kinda cool.

This is really a far, far cry from Chicago's
touch but no matter how common, 
bringing it all together 
seems worth the effort...
...besides, I "adapted" way 2 often as a shorty so this is nothing new;)

Sharing the perspective is what 
it's all about even here in this place we call 
REDBANK.




Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Double Secret Probation.

It's most fulfilling as an artist 2
create an image & brand from scratch.
Somehow, someway it takes on a life of it's own from top 2 bottom.

Ideal of perception is what it's all about
so why not make something worth perceiving.
Brand & all.
Recently I received an invitation 2 check out 
a local band practice 
& thought I'll bring along the trusty Canon...
(just in case I was inspired).


They call themselves 
Double Secret Probation 
& comes across as vintage 80's rock
with some front man action from 
Tom McPockets.

...thanks for the invite;)
Here's a brief run through of some creative 
direction after the experience. 
You gotta start somewhere, so why not here.

Point taken.


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)
