I've been "practicing" photography for about seven years now. When you find what you are passionate about, it is amazing how you grow without ever realizing that it's even happening. It becomes like breathing, and if you take it away... the life goes out of you. I never can explain to someone who isn't artistically inclined, how it is possible to actually hear an image in your head, but I do. I try my best to translate that here, but I think it really is just one of those things you have to feel with your own heart. I imagine this is why the movie August Rush is such a favorite with me. They did an amazing job encompassing art, film, two totally different kinds of music, story, emotion, and heart all into a very enjoyable two hour time frame. I mourn when the music is lost and I rejoice, when it is found again. It resonates way down deep inside of me in all the most important places. And Something Inside... keeps driving me on.
