Pix to Words ~ Volume I :: Harmony in Word and Form

Pix to Words Magazine ~ Volume I

I promised myself way back in 2015, “I’ll publish a book based on Pix To Words if I reach 500 followers by the end of the year.” I did, but I didn’t, so now I finally am. Motivated to provide something people could take home from my gallery exhibit, Harmony in Word and Form, now showing at Gallery Bistro, and also something to share a bit of the gallery experience with those who can’t possibly make it to the gallery, I present Pix to Words Magazine ~ Volume I. The magazine features most of the photographs, poetry and stories appearing in the gallery exhibit, with a couple additions thrown in.

Harmony in Word and Form: 2018 Gallery Exhibit featuring Pix to Words photographs, stories and poetry.

Harmony in Word and Form

I apologize, everyone, for being AWOL these past few weeks, and for not posting Pic and a Word Challenges. But I do have some exciting news.

All of my creative energy has been directed toward completing preparations to hang a gallery exhibit featuring photographs, stories and poems selected from Pix to Words. Very exciting! And a much larger task than I allowed myself to believe.

Lots of new stuff coming as a result. When things calm down after the opening (perhaps a bit during … stay tuned to the Facebook Pix to Words page if I can manage some live feed from the reception.)

Pic and a Word should return August 26th, the day after the Opening Reception.

Thanks for your patience!

And wish me luck. =)

Authentic

Quiet mind
Breathe

If nothing comes
Find a prompt
(Photographs usually work.)
Start again

Breathe
Quiet mind

Write what comes
Don’t argue with the words

It’s OK to not like what they say
Write them anyway

It’s OK to not have the right words

Write down the wrong words
The right ones can be found later

Wait or pause whenever it feels
Like the words aren’t coming… yet
Or the meaning isn’t right… yet
And the right way isn’t present… yet
