What October 2015 Looked Like

So, I cheated.

This sweet little corner of the internet that I call my own is usually reserved for strictly words, because pictures take too much time and editing and feel like work, where as words usually flow through me like a freshly opened mild sauce packet on a hot Cheesy Gordita Crunch or like a billowing unicorn mane in the breeze or even like a rushing, raging river that you definitely struggled to ford in the popular computer game,  Oregon Trail. What I mean to say is: writing is kinda my thing.

Anyway: I cheated.

Writer’s block has been taking over my 5’3 3/4″ (to be exact) frame like a plague lately, and I can’t seem to finish a sentence without my brain trailing off in 8 different directions, so rather than chastise my lack of words, I just channeled my millennial nature and decided to say “Why use words when you could use video?”

So, here’s the last month-ish of my life, written through an iPhone lens. It’s certainly not going to win any Oscars, but sometimes you just need a new creative outlet when your usual go-to is shaky or running low or just not flowin’.
