broken heart

broken heartIn response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Broken.”

I don’t like people just showing up at my house. Did I mention that?
I live in my own world now, and it takes me more than a few minutes to be ready to see another human beings.
I get in the zone after I check WordPress site in the morning. Once I get inspiration, I am engrossed in my writing or/and artwork.

Today, I spent all day working on my “Broken” photo challenge project. I started to think about it last night. I did some researches, and lots of images and words have been swirling inside my head. I haven’t brushed my teeth or taken a shower yet. My girl dog had to paw me to remind me that she needed to go outside to pee. I just heated up and ate a sausage a few minutes ago because I was starving.

After all this, I am heartbroken at the result. None of the images came out the way I wanted.

Why do I do it if I am not good at it? Because I have to.
It’s like that scene in the movie ” Frida,” when Frida asked Diego what he thought of her painting, he replied,
“What do you care about my opinion? If you’re a real painter, you’ll paint because you can’t live without painting. You’ll paint till you die.”
I don’t know if I will do this till I die, but I know, right now, I have to do this. I can’t explain why or what for. I am just thankful that I ever get to do it.

So, you are stuck with my odd and amateurish works for a while. And, please don’t break my heart by not calling first when you visit me.

  1. Your photos here are very nice Nelkumi-san, but I enjoyed your writing even more. Thank you again for sharing. My dog also has tp remind me to let him out to pee sometimes when I’m engrossed im something. They’re so nice, our dogs, reminding us to let them out instead of just peeing inside the house.

  2. I agree with snowsomewhere – the pictures are very interesting, I’m not sure what emotion they are stirring in me… anger? disappointment?… maybe – your words on the other hand make me smile. Thank you for sharing 🙂 PS – I loved the movie about Frida, such a great artist and a tragic life.

  3. This is such an interesting post. I can identify wholly with the ‘surprise’ knock at the door. I am fortunate to be living in a new community where folks do not often just show up.
