There is this great song by Colin Hay called, “Waiting for my Real Life to Begin”, and I had it stuck in my head all day. Do you ever have songs just plant themselves in your brain for no good reason and then continue to stay upfront, yelling their music and lyrics at you? Well that happened to me so instead of fighting it, I made this picture out of it.
I was at a sim called Mother Road which is a perfect roadside location for photographs. If you pay 100L, you can join the group to rezz stuff there. today though, I just wanted to do a couple of photos without props.
I was also thinking about the fact that my life is about to change again. The university Semester officially starts again tomorrow and in a strange way, as I sit here and write this, I feel like I am waiting for THAT real life to begin. I love studying. I love research. I like talking about art with like minded people and as much as it can be hard to hear, I even love the critique of the work I do for my study. I feel like when it is all combined, it makes me a better artist.
While it has been lovely indeed to have a few months off, to do family things and work on the exhibition and get through Christmas and New Year, it always feels like a period of resting and waiting. Or rather in my case, avoiding the resting and overloading with many things in order to avoid that feeling of waiting…but still feeling it as an undercurrent anyway.
So, that brings me back to my photo and the feeling I get when I look at it and the song that runs through my head whenever I see it…Waiting for my real life to begin…
