Black and White

Black and white pictureTo see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul.Andri Cauldwell

I am going to be away this week for work. My life will be lived out in colour as I take in all the new things and see the world through my other eyes. I will leave part of me behind, keep it hidden and protected as I wear my mask for others. I will tell my half truths, half of each story and half of each thought.  I will be the person others see. My life, usually balanced into carefully managed parts, will become about just the one. I will embrace being immersed in the colour, but the black and white will remain in my soul.

  1. Sometimes we have to keep one part of us hidden in order to do what we need to do, and then we can return to being the whole of ourselves. Lovely words and image 🙂

    • Yes that is very true. And I am finding it easier than last time. Not as warm in the NL as I thought though!

  2. I think we all get the half-truths bit. Living carefully compartmentalized takes energy and forethought, but it is worth it and it feels weird when we only have to focus on one. Enjoy that brief freedom.

    • You are the master of it I am sure. I am only playing for a short while which will make it much easier. But thank you ?

  3. Beautiful image! The soft focus is perfect.
    I hope your trip is/was good – I’m pretty sure the homecoming will be spectacular!
