Me-Flection Day #1: Put Yourself on the Map

The Challenge: Create a self-portrait on a map illustrating a time you felt "lost".

Here is my result:

"The Sky-Seeker"

I chose to integrate the outline of the map on the horizon.  For me this symbolizes the searching of the cosmos, the connection with the sky as a road map, the searching of the stars for direction.

This photo reminds me of myself lost in the wilderness of this wild, technologically-crazed world...searching for peace...searching for my Cherokee ancestry.  Searching for stillness enough to look inward.

  1. as part aztec heritage and lineage, i too search for the soul and spirit of the truth in all that is...in the chaos, in the beauty mine eyes behold in every waking and dreaming moment. i stand before the omnipresent soul of life wandering in its abode wishing and hoping it too recognizes my presence. love is its breath

    gracias for sharing, mi amiga
