This is my first article, and I thought I would start by saying that it feels really nice to finally have a voice, and not just a series of photos which best describe me but don't say a lot about who I am or what I feel.

I have spent a long time on this site, scrolling through thousands of pictures, finding ones which speak to me and deciding where they best belong. The process is chaotic, especially when I don't know what exactly I'm looking for, or how to describe it -- but I always have an idea of how it's supposed to feel when you look at all the images as part of a whole idea. That's really important to me.

I guess I use them to make sense of the world, and how I'm feeling, and I find some kind of peace in seeing it projected to me on a screen. The images find me searching for meaning, and something to relate to.

I'm a recluse at best, and sometimes, images are nicer than words, especially when I feel like I have nothing to say, and a new, easier way of telling everyone how I feel or who I am has been a refreshing experience. I am happy in the way that I am, and I am comfortable enough to say I feel wholesome in how I interact with the world around me-- which is at an arm's length.

You can call me your local, friendly wholesome loner.
