This Week’s Theme: Black and White
When I went to grad school orientation, we did a little activity. In order to get to know each other better, the instructor would read out a descriptor, and anyone who felt it fit them would stand up. It was simple when she read “stand if you have a cat” or “stand if you have any siblings.” But then came a tough one.
“Stand if you’re an artist.”
I gulped and felt the question hang in the air. The silence asked me “well, are you an artist, or aren’t you?” I waited (for what felt like 20 minutes) and then I stood up. Another woman stood up after me, and we smiled at each other, knowing that asking an artist if they’re an artist is not a simple question.
“Why are you artists?” The instructor asked.
This is a bit how I feel about linking up with a photographer. But the linkup hostesses are so kind, welcoming, and assuring that even people like me, who like to photograph my friends in scarves that I’ve made, can link up. I hope you join.
If you were asked if you were an artist, would you stand up?
(don’t worry, I won’t ask you why)
