The first photo entry for my weekly Self Portrait Journal. A 52-week glimpse into the attributes of James Olmos.
Week One – Vulnerable
I am fragile. Yet, within fragility I am strong. As I continue to express myself through songwriting, photography, painting and poetry . . . I offer myself up for criticism and judgment. I also open myself to empowerment. For there is strength and beauty found in abandonment when you release your passions in silent surrender.
Am I hiding behind this door or am I opening the door? Do you have eyes to see beyond the shadows behind me? Are you curious or do you even care about the passions beyond the threshold?
I do not want to be held captive by my fears. I choose to open the door. I know I will be broken . . . I know I will heal.
i love you.
