To kick off my visual travel journal I felt it would be right to start with a self-portrait. I tried to come up with some words that best described my life. The immediate terms that came to mind were: colorful, exciting, fast-paced, slightly chaotic, dreamy, and whimsical. Whatever it is I’m doing – mommy chores and travel alike – I’m always dreaming of far off places, and thus it was only fitting for me to find an image with my suitcase in hand.
All I can hear is one little sound while I’m daydreaming, twirling, and spinning around. Voices of far off places summon me near, I respond inquisitively with impulse and cheer. So many cultures and sights to be seen, capture the moments, savor and glean. Life is what I make of it, or at least they say, well I’m creating mine in my very own way. Not a moment to waste, on negativity or glower, I choose to shine bright, like yellow on a sunflower. Find me on a mountain peak or over a glacier, adventure is what moves me, in every flavor. So I’m packing my bags yet another time, running out the door on the drop of a dime. Volcanoes and wildlife and jungles you say? Count me in, I’ll be there, I can’t wait another day! I’ll sing it from the rooftop in my loudest voice, I do what I love because happiness is my choice.
What are some words you would use to describe yourself? How would you translate these words visually?
