"A man's true delight is to do the things he was made for."
I took an East Indian dance class today. Fluid arms, sharp steps with the legs and feet, slight/controlled movements of the torso, very particularized positions with the hands and fingers, and specific eye movements to go along with the steps. Really interesting stuff, but anyway.
After taking the class, I felt the best I've felt in quite awhile. Motivated and content and whole and such. I say this as a dancer who has neglected my greatest passion for the past year of my life. It was a completely different feeling of happiness from, say, a good and supposedly happy weekend spent with friends. Just goes to show that when we don't do the things in life that we are meant for, we can (and probably will!) get stuck in a rut of unhappiness and negativity. Perhaps without even realizing it.

"Exploring and exposing young photographic ingenuity. We want to celebrate the creativity and originality shared by our peers and those we admire, still in the earliest stages of their photographic lives."
This is a great resource of young photographers around the world. All the photographers featured on their website are between fourteen and nineteen years old. They've got some really good fresh talent up there and is definitely worth checking out. Look out for photo zines and books they are releasing, as well as a group exhibition in London I am excited to be a part of. Fourteen-Nineteen is run by two talented young photographers Lewis Chaplin and Alex F. Webb.
