"If you are working on a project and photographers discourage you by saying “it has been done before” ignore them. Nobody has done it like you before."

This morning I’m sitting outside my local Starbucks enjoying a coffee looking at the newly listed on deviantArt. I click through on a low key lit nude of a woman. The photographer has quite a few in their gallery. They are all tastefully done and very beautiful, showcasing the aesthetic and genius that is the human body. I hear a “*harrumph* you gotta be kidding me” to my left. I turn to see a woman looking at me scornfully. She notices I’m looking at her and felt compelled to share “Don’t you have any morals? You just think its okay to look at such filth in a public place?!”(ironically I’m cleaning up the language) At this point I decide I’m not going to attempt to explain the difference between art nude and pornography.” Ma’am how about you stick to what is on your own smart phone screen and spare me from your sensibilities?”

I hate it when I dream about the mundane. I mean the really mundane. The day to day minutiae like using the bathroom or doing laundry. Then again I guess I should be grateful my day to day is so mundane. I could dream about hunger, pain or fear only to wake up to realize that is my day to day.
