I sometimes work so hard on trying to be innovative in music that I get so distracted from genre, but I can't write music without knowing a form, so its just- mad sometimes.

Today I am listening to Laura Marling's "I speak Because I Can" and reminding myself of how important folk music though I should have to. Marling represents a really effortless approach to how folk should be crafted, as difficult to be imagined otherwise; a new age of folk music that doesn't- honestly- "require" being a crossover sort of act, which is not necessarily, or by any means wrong, but it is comforting for music as such to be accepted as exactly what it stands as. As well as to know accessibility does not require a level of immediate understanding, for- complexity of emotion and sophisticated elements have always fostered greatness.

In retrospect, although I hadn't spent enough time with this record in 2010, it's my #1 from the start of a decade.

And so, there will always be an evident hope for greatness in music, and I'm grateful for that.

At times, it may best to return to what you know and to build off of that. I still always think back to shooting with Reva this day and actually making the photographs how I intended them.

It's been a long time since I've really thought a photograph through as much as I used to, and I intend to go back to that practice. I hope to find myself back into a momentum in order to start feeling proud and/or open to showing photographs, and so I am relieved and really just happy to be starting this more regularly as I have before, and in all achieving a point of consistency that I hope to follow.

Maybe I just need to call Reva again.

But still very excited for an outing with Madeline, someone I have wanted to photograph for a while now.

Lenae Day/Ledaenay, a freezing cold Bellingham afternoon.

I need to get my camera cleaned, and this is my last roll of Fujipro for a while, unless I can find any of the 160NS.
