The Art Of Being Series: Vertigo

“Talking, talking. Spinning a web of words, pale walls of dreams, between myself and all I see.” – John Gardner

I think, when the concept of ‘true colors’ was brought up for the Selfy Sunday Project, my first idea was to think about colors as emotion in a fine arts sense.  Colors are meant to evoke emotions, and in life – as an artist and human being, in general – I am made up of not just one feeling.

I wanted to express that in some way, and that is how this concept was born.  I am a myriad of emotions and feelings; that is why I used them all and titled this series The Art Of Being.

For this next installment of the series, I went with something that has become a part of my life, vertigo.  It started a few years ago, and can make me quite ill and miserable, but the one thing I refuse to let it do is own me.

If you have never experienced vertigo personally, I can only explain it as all the bad parts of being drunk; the floor doesn’t feel like it is below you and the room likes to wiggle and spin around you.

As I had a rather nasty bout this week, it seemed fitting to let me have it out in a more artistic and productive setting, rather than let it dictate things for me.

This week, I explore   #theartofbeing#livingwiththegoodandbad  and#emotionalintelligence.
