different march

ntc2ntc3ntc1

all is OK . worry no more . suddenly
. each beat is unique . felt in a different way .
step to the music you hear . whichever rhythm is part of you
freedom plays loudly . peace in the soft tones
marching at Emily's this afternoon

iike walking to the beat of your own drummer....and boy do i ever do that. it took me years to know that it's okay to not hear what the others are hearing....

I don't know how you put together these photos (photoshop) maybe but I am seriously digging the vibes coming off of them:)

ELK said...

yes kt I was just playing around with textures.. all the photos were so blurry but I liked them so why not take them in a different direction?... different drummer that am!!

Tracy said...

This is so timely, Elk, for this year more than every I'm trying to sing my own song... Figuratively speaking, of course... I don't even sing in the shower! ;o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

deb said...

oh, I'm pretty unique.
I hear different music all the time,
on different days.

wonderful

mrs mediocrity said...

the problem is, lately i can't hear the music. but i'll keep listening, it's there, somewhere...

Jamie said...

What a brilliant reminder that sometimes it is the differences in us that make the world better.

Kellee said...

Really lovely. Music seems dangerous to me, these days - I find myself stepping to the beat I want, rather than what I might hear.

MaggieGem said...

Sometimes you have to be really brave to march to the beat of a different drum... but usually it's so worth it!

Nice shots!

Heather said...

What a wonderful visual to go along with your words! March on dear friend!

"freedom plays loudly..."

...you shall be free indeed...

Nancy said...

I have a son who marches to his own beat and is constantly drumming--on any and every-thing. I thought of him instantly when I saw your photos. Waiting for Christ to set him free to do whatever it is he was put on this earth to do. And I know it will be beautiful.

Jewels said...

love the textures in these!

your treatment gave this a 50's feel ...

I'm here for the first time from Emily's. Loved these lines. I'm trying to learn to follow my own rhythm instead of trying to copy other people's songs.

Laura said...

These are so gorgeous! did I tell you that we have a little drummer boy in our house? He's quite the "march to a different beat" kind of guys.

Beautiful, ELK!

Brian Miller said...

nice...great pics...and finding that rhythm....

Jennifer @ Getting Down With Jesus said...

Fun photos. Cool ...

My husband has a drumset in the basement. My mama gave him drums for Christmas. It was at the top of his Christmas wish-list. Trouble is, he doesn't know how to play drums. At all. :-)

Love that . . . freedom rings loudly!

I like the textures.

beautiful poem, I looked at your etsy shop, your birds are adorable, wonderful creations.

Roban said...

Fitting in is overrated! ... love the photos, by the way. I've always loved drums and had my own set as a child. I've found that steering wheels work pretty well these days.

spread your wings said...

Carrie Burtt said...
