So I've been married to my husband for almost three years now, and we've been together for nearly five. The life I had before is full of so many mostly bitter memories. Changing my facebook status, changing my profile picture, removing the former boyfriend as a friend. Those were the easy things to do right after the change in my life occurred.
What has been more difficult to figure out than I anticipated? My art. Every now and then I'll come back to a site like deviant art where my life was so tangled with former boyfriend's life that its hard even now to find the thread ends. Where do I draw the line between "picture of old boy friend" and "fantastic photo that I worked really hard to create the content for, and worked even harder on getting the actual shot"? I've done some cleaning up in my gallery today, and I think I've done a pretty good job of drawing that line, but there may be some more photos that disappear.
Some steampunk photos went out the window as well today, for similar reasons. Around the time old boyfriend and I split, I was coming to terms with the fact that many in the SP community had hurt me deeply. Seeing their faces again today just brings back those terrible memories.
Deviant art. You are a wonderful... terrible little time capsule. Today's clean out has been bitter sweet.
My gallery is a much better representation of my work now though!
