Day 295 by ErinBird Day 295 by ErinBird
Name: Leaves ~ 295.366

"People are like leaves: at some point in our life we all change ."

I'm very proud to say I made this quote up haha ! Anyway , it's true , we all change at some point . Whether it's from a break up , or a death of someone close , or graduating or whatever . There will be a point when you'll view your life different and change yourself a bit . I wanted the tips of my fingers in this shot as it added to the 'people' / human element in the quote . Plus , I said I'm trying to find more ways on writing quotes .. so ta-da !

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

Better than me: I'd have just written 'Help. I'm a leaf!' on it. Good work.

Metaphorically speaking, that is.
Like, in that our knowledge and experiences and things provide bedding for the growth of future generations.
No in a "we all rot down into the earth" way.

OK, maybe I said that mostly for poetic and dramatic effect :bulletblack: Or maybe my perennial alienation feelings are flaring up? :bulletblack: It does seem that the heartwood has stayed pretty much the same, even when they've taken a flamethrower to my leaves :bulletblack: But then again, I have been twisted by more elaborate and meaningful sadnesses...

We might all change but we originally remain the same leaf.

Great quote though, I'm just pessimistic haha.

There's research that says, we ,rewrite' ourselves everyday ... this whole ,i'm like this' .. ,now I'm more like this' thing is just our image of identity that makes us more secure.
But actually we change every single day.

Ah that's true , but sometimes there are big events in our lives and we actually realise that we change . But yes it's true we do change every day .

I always tried so ,collect' the different memories that somehow seemed important to me- and thus keep my picture of what I call ,myself' (I must admit I'm kind of chaotic sometimes :) )
But what's very true: Some big events open a completely new perspective on the things- whe thought, we'd understand.

I do the same - collect little items or bits and bobs that changed me . I still have a cinema ticket from the night my boyfriend first told me he loves me haha

I like how the background gives it a melancholic tone. And don't you feel like, as you are searching for new ways to make your art, you're improving as an artist? :)

One can look at it this way. But maybe the most important thing is that one keeps creating and everybody's having a good time. :)
