Where Are We? What The Hell?




Bath Finale

Originally uploaded by everythingsjustjake

The beginning lyrics from an Imogen Heap song. I had that as my status in Facebook, the first time I have done a facebook update in aeons. Immediately, I got messages of concern asking me what’s up? What’s up- Well, song lyrics that I like and that have SOME relevance to my life at the moment. No drama. Just: What the hell?

Although this self portrait was originally intended as just another shot for a 365 Self Portrait group I belong to, it speaks in other ways.
Where are we? What the hell?
Leaving an old year, entering a new one. I have asked the previous questions more times than I can count. [Well, not really. If I wasn’t so lazy, I would count.] For the first time in a long while, I know where I am. I know what the hell. It feels kinda good but I still proceed with an air of caution.
What felt really good was taking a bath (which I never do), immersing my head and blowing out all of the air I held in until nothing more came out. What a release!
I highly recommend it.

Where are you? What the hell?

  4. wtf is right!

    what is wrong with people – sometimes i think some folks would not know art if it bite them in the ass…

    i enjoyed that shot and the others – they show imagination – talent – humour! the fact that you are a hottie does not hurt either. 😉

    some people should get over their damn selves and maybe get a life…

    with regard to:

    “What felt really good was taking a bath (which I never do), immersing my head and blowing out all of the air I held in until nothing more came out. What a release! I highly recommend it.”

    perhaps if they would try it – they might like it – it is a release – a catharsis and that is needed by many.!

    okay i am off my soapbox now – sorry – sometimes things just piss me off…

    take care and be safe…palestar

  5. I’m right here! Sorry! Been busy! heh xoxo

  6. I love your insights Jake! I wish I were as sure of my path as you are!!! too many wtf moments in life!!!
