I viewed some pictures recently and determined that some pictures appear boring without a frame. Frames can add so much more character and attitude to a bland photo. A frame serves to accentuate without overpowering the desired effect of the photo, the same way than an accent alters the sound of a word.
In the same way there are things that shape and frame our being. Things that help define who and what we are
Things we say, do and represent are all a part of our personalities. Our convictions and what drives or motivates us.
How we respond to the external forces that we cannot control but all can manage. Our set of values and principles that we live by and follow. Our ego.
So what defines you?
What do you represent and are know for?
We must be mindful of our thoughts and actions because they indeed define us.
We must be mindful of the space we share with each other and how we respect the place and space we ( and others) live in because that defines us as well.
We must be sure to give back in our own small way because that also helps to define us.
Every thing we say, everything we do tells the world who we are and what we stand for.
Are you happy with the image that you put out there or are there a few opportunities you have ( we all have them) that we know we should start to change?
A picture is worth a thousand words but what of the frame?
What good is a pretty picture without a good frame?
What good are we without a strong foundation – terra firms on which to plant our feet on today’s shaky ground.
What frames you?
Noisy metal bullet
Not quite standing clear
Using novels as graves
Shutting out chaos
Mechanical voices announce
Stops I have previously had
Here I stand
Waiting in the cold
Anticipating your warm
More iron walls constrict
Fathom by fathom
Before giving birth to me
My head breaks open
Mimicking my heart
