Inspirational sparks from Ghost of Love

I am starting a series that was inspired by the song Ghost of Love from David Lynch and the movie Inland Empire, It will include photos, self portraits, art, some work that is archived that fits, etc etc :) whooo, who knows, but I will label each piece Inland Empire inspiration so to be known and I cannot wait to see where it takes me. David sparks quite a bit of inspiration in general for me of course, but I have teamed up with my good friends Aaron Goss and Jen Ramage as well to see what we can make of it all. So periodically watch for the series. Here are just a few photos to start with and a first post (within this post) of a photo I took of birds crossing the sky with my shutter left open and having this project in mind as well.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

One by one
We force ourselves
Turn it on
It comes in waves

Try to find
Maybe this time
Don't turn your head
it's easy to forget how we were

Once inside
We've made it here
We struggle with the lights
They never go away

What have we learned
It's the same old things
That drive us here
And never go away
We are changed

Through the tides
Make your way
You'll find the time
A comfort inside

Here I wait
In the safe place
Where we were so many years ago
So many years ago

One by one
We close our eyes
And returned to that place
As a thousand nights go by

One by one
We close our eyes
And returned to that place
As a thousand nights went by
