What Do You Do With It All?

“When there's so much to say, but words get lost... When there's so much to do, but time vanishes into the distance... When emotions get bottled up and self doubt takes the wheel... I look to art. Creating is my security, my control. Capturing beauty makes my spirit beam with gratitude. An outlet to express myself, a way to release. A chance to share that experience with others. Thank you for letting me to share that with you.”

-Naté
