This week I am kicking off a girl-power theme. I’m a tad bit tired of being the “strong woman behind the successful man”. Do individuals know how insulting that may be to say to a woman who is successful in her own right? The grand Lauren Bacall, who sadly just passed away, taught many a men how to whistle.
As I hiked a nature reserve in an area two hours away from Melbourne, Australia I clicked away on my camera. I was surrounded by large looming trees. I was deep within the forest. That was how I have been feeling for a long time lately. There comes a point where you trek and hike and you know there must be an end to the trail. Do I start a new trail? Do I go off the trail? Start my own trail? Stay for another loop on the same trail? It is all a trial of will, stamina and self-belief.
I know I want my voice to reverberate and have a long-lasting echo in the forest. I’d like to climb those looming trees that stand upright in the shadows.
I want to capture that silhouette and dance with it.
