"I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade" Hattie White

This morning I woke up with a anxiety and a creeping faint feeling. I have not felt that in a long time, I think I have been to busy lately to feel anything. The world I is changing so fast right now. White stupid men I trying to lead people in the wrong direction using fear and lies. I needed some inspiration to not fall in to that black hole of hopelessness. I needed to hear the voice of someone that can always sing away the darkness. I put on Freedom from the Lemonade album on and all of a sudden I was writing a list of what I can do to make a differens thinking that I can not just sit quietly to watch things crash and burn. Where do you go when you need to reload. When you need to get your strength back? I feel powerful when I have a pen in my hand or when I look trough the lins of my camera. When I hear or see someone using their creativity to make a difference I get my hope back.
