Another metaphor. Honestly, when I created this, I didn't realize how much is would reflect the coming years. Packing my bags and moving to the edge of "tornado alley."

The hardest part of this one was the lighting and shadows. I think I did a fair job.

Another photo manip. Though I used the model that I often use for Sara, this is not a Relativity picture. However, after I created it, I do think it could apply in many ways to the character, so I'm going to add it to the group, too. But, again, this is meant as a general piece.

This is imagery I’ve been thinking of for a long time. More or less, this is a metaphor for life. Life is not easy. As much as we would like to have life give us the good things with little effort, the truth of the matter is “no pain, no gain.” No one wants to walk the road filled with trials and tribulations, but it’s often necessary. And quite frankly, even when you try to walk to easy roads, the tornados come, anyway. Best to be prepared for it. Of course, I post this during one of my pessimistic moods where I’m like “why bother?” LOL! My subconscious trying to tell me something, I suppose.
