Face to Face. In a Dry and Waterless Place.

I've finally had the time this week to process the images from our holiday out on long island last month. They are all part of a new project that I'm working on that I might be talking about here in the future.

In the meantime, I'm so inspired after going to the U2 concert at Giants Stadium last night. It was a total nightmare getting there and getting home but the incredible performance by the band more than made up for it. I've never been to a higher energy show in my life. And, it's amazing when you go to to a show and you know every single word in every single song. Try to imagine what it sounds like to hear 80,000 people sing the words to "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" - I have the goosebumps right now just thinking about it. They also played The Unforgettable Fire - my all-time favorite U2 song and probably one of my top 3 favorite songs of all time. When they played it I was back in my old room on my bed just daydreaming and listening to the CD on my little stereo. Their music inspires me so much.

If you've been reading this blog for a while, or even if you're new to it you might have noticed that I am constantly moved and inspired by the ocean. To me it's a living, breathing organism. It is moody and volatile...one minute it is calm, the next it is raging mad. I can sit and stare at it for hours. I love the greens, blues and browns contrasted against the steely grays and stark whites. Sometimes I feel like the moods of the ocean reflect my own. The sounds are like lullabies to me.

These were all taken within a few days of each other at the beach. We're going back there this weekend...I wonder what I will find.

Today's Soundtrack:
U2 - The Unforgettable Fire
