With what words do I give you a glimpse of myself? I am at a loss, sitting here, staring at emptiness, wondering how to fill it with truthful words.
I do not know how to begin to unravel, to probe, to discover myself. I am a tangle of love, of confusion, of faith and of musing.
Meaningless phrases and hidden truths, all of them aside, who am I?
I am a photographer, a writer, a violinist, a dreamer, a singer, a dancer, a reader, a scholar. These words do not make up my being, they are merely things I do.
But what words ever could? I have an affinity for words, but I couldn’t sum up my being even if I memorized every word in my thick cobalt dictionary. Words are beautiful, but incapable of capturing a soul, a spirit, a personality.
Beauty entrances me, it fills me with energy, bubbling from an eternal spring.
What is beauty? It is a rainbow on a clear night, it is the tinkling laugh of a newborn, it is the essence of music, it is the thrill of words. Beauty is life. Life is beauty. The two are interchangeable, knotted together, intertwined and related forever.
I am dedicated to beauty. I am committed to life.
But beauty needs a Designer, and life needs a meaning. God is embedded in my bones, woven through my spirit, supporting my soul. I can never run away from Him, for He is in me. He knows me, much better than I myself do.
