back in january i had a photo in the visual art exchange's first exhibit of the year. called "the road show", it featured works about life on the road -- road signs, maps, cars, roads, or road trip sights. i had shot mine through a rain-spattered car window on a road trip from philly to raleigh.
artists were allowed to submit up to two pieces in any media, and then the juror, meg rader of the uber-classy mahler gallery, selected which submissions would be exhibited. i was highly honored to have my submission included in the show and awarded an honorable mention. the awesomeness of the occasion was palpable.
here's my photo all framed and hanging on the gallery wall:
and here's the original photo:

my dad sent me this quote a while ago, and i find myself returning to it time and time again.
"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day." -- Rainer Maria Rilke
