All I needed was the last thing I wanted
To sit alone in a room and say it all out loud
Every moment, every second, every trespass
Every awful thing, every broken dream
Asking Alexandria – Alone In A Room
It’s been 450 days since I last sat down to do this. That is one hell of a long time. In the interest of honesty I never thought I would post another blog. Not today, not tomorrow, not next year. I was, in my mind, content with where I had left things. Of course over time that changed. I missed the creativity, the creation of the scene, taking the shot, working it up, and ultimately it going live. Now here I am again.
This time it -will- be different. This time it’s me doing it solely for me. It’s not going to be a job, it’s not an I have to do this thing. It is 100% an I want to do this thing. Granted it didn’t start out as a have to thing last time, but I’m not letting it this time. A lot has changed in those 450 days. Most of which I’m going to choose not to talk about. Just know that I went away to deal with life, and I have.
Things change and that is one inevitable in this world of ours. It’s unavoidable and out of our control. You can fight it, sometimes you win, other times you don’t. The key is what do you do in those times where you don’t? If you’re like me then you remove yourself from whatever those things might be. It’s my way of dealing with it. I disconnect from it, and take a long hard look at what happened versus what I wanted to happen.
I ended up going very simple with this first shot back. The lyrics to Asking Alexandria’s Alone In A Room fit where I was. By myself figuring out what my next steps were. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would but I did what I had to. There isn’t a ton of new in the this one. Though I did update to a newer Bento head from CATWA. Stanley fit my aesthetic much better than my previous one. I also grabbed a more up to date skin for it from Clef de Peau. They were becoming my go to brand for skins before my hiatus and that hasn’t changed now that I’m here again.
I ended up tweaking the pose ever so slightly, but RK Poses are always top notch for me. The idea of the “shhh” pose came into focus late one night because of my quietness in coming back. I didn’t plan on it so rather then make a huge deal of it, I pretty much told no one. I don’t know how long it will last, but I look forward to whatever may come. I’ve missed all of you. Let’s have some fun.
