"Feast" Your Eyes

There's nothing quite like the feeling of art.
and being artistic.
I love photography, oils, acrylics, calligraphy and so much more.
but ESPECIALLY photography.
this little photo was part of a friendship shoot that I did over Thanksgiving break.
beautiful.
"You don't take a photograph, you make it."

Re-Record.

There is something inside each of us, calling us by name.
It's a voice that wants to be heard.
Some say it's a conscience, while others refer to it as our inner person or child.

I think this voice inside my head is an opera singer. And a loud one.
Everything I do or say seems to have consequences that I can never forget.
Constantly, the screeching voice is reminding me of my past mistakes.

What an annoying way to live.
So I have decided to sing over the noise and to re-record.
But this time, it's a smooth, silky, deep man voice.

He's singing to me that it's going to be alright.
That it is not the end.
This time around, my voice is strong and only positive.

This re-recorded voice is calming.
Is peaceful.
Is wonderful.

I think it's time to play this new tune. And never, ever stop.

Update On Life

There has been soooo much going on.
This is my fabulous, wonderful and fantastic mentor group.
I honestly have no idea where I would be without them.
Also, ^ is HILARIOUS.
This is my BFFFFFFFFF Shreya.
And yes, we can do the double downward dog together in yoga class.
These sweetie pies are why I keep going.
Life is so, so good.

Letting GO.

my wings spread out
for i am about to fly
when suddenly a breeze rushes 
past me.

stopping me.
holding me back from all I ever wanted
why is it so hard to let go?
to leave it behind

i fight the feelings
hoping IT WILL GET BETTER.
forget the memories
forget the emotions
forget the hurt

expand your desires
and
just
let
go.

Poetry?

"an attempt":

through years of memories
we jump through the hoops
constantly wondering if we're on the same track
the road divides
we walk alone
this time, only thoughts are on our sides

"come. back. to. me."
that is all I ask.
fly home to my home once more
lets pick up where the pieces fell
and forget the dark and sleepless nights
lets rewrite what was written
so that midnight can roam free
again.

i wash my face with the coldest ice.
wishing i had warmth
tears start to fall
but i slap them away, not tonight
not at all

this is an attempt to convey
to express with deep regret
that if i had to do it all over again,

nothing would be changed.

Mariama Kallon

You never know where your inspiration will come from.
or when you will feel the spirit..
This movie I was shown by my newest roomie, Suze.
And it is inspirational!

A convert to the church during a civil war in Sierra Leone, Africa
this lady has gone through so much, seen so much and has performed so much faith.
It's a short film that I suggest to everyone!
Feel the Lords love for his people through her sweet testimony.

Also, I keep seeing this photo everywhere. 
And I relate.

Two Cats Walk Around The Block...

"We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence."
-Joseph Roux
"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand."
-Henri Nouwen

"Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend."
-Plautus 
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."
-Albert Schweitzer

Sunrise

Every morning while I walk to work, millions of thoughts and details are rushing around in my head.
But right when I look up and see the beautiful sunrise, everything feels right with the world.
Things will work out.
My life is good.




And I am grateful God made sunrises.

New Perspective

I'll be the first to admit that I get stuck in ruts,
times where nothing goes right.
And then there are times when someone will say something,
you'll hear something,
you'll see something.
And your perspective will entirely change.
I am grateful for the gospel in my life,
I am blessed.

Where has time gone?!
I love her laugh.
I love her happy demeanor.
I love her facial expressions.
I love how she can do anything she puts her mind to.
I love that she understands me in a way that no one else can.
I love that she always brightens my day and can make me laugh.
(pig tied to a tire...)
I love her beautiful face and GREAT personality.
I love the adventures we go on.
I love how she is genuine and herself in any circumstance.
I love how thoughtful she is of others.
I love how loyal she is.
I love how much she cares for her family and friends.
(aka me.)
I love how she is such a positive, uplifting spirit that God sent to this earth.
I love her.
