Loving Life. Living Love.
Salutations to all, whether friends or kin I am just tickled that you stopped by to read my electronic diary....Actually, I'm not sure my audience will consist of either of those two addressee's. Most of you actually may not know me. I've spent the majority of my life living a very low profile. Mainly in attics and basements. The occasional car trunk. The past several years wouldn't be quite what I would call glamorous, but I've always had a roof over my head and a place to call my own.
The thing is, I used to be content with my simple little homes. Darkness was often my only constant companion. I became quite accustomed to being not seen...or heard for that matter- part of the background's background so to speak.
But one day something happened. I don't quite know how to explain it, but it was as if a well that I thought was forever dry and without life, bubbled up inside me. I found myself bursting forth with a renewed vigor and excitement to see the world! I had always heard of colors and sights and sounds outside attic windows, but suddenly I had this unspeakable urge to wake up and find my own story. I was tired of imagining. Tired of dreaming.
So I took action. It's like this. I figure that even if I shoot for the moon and miss...at least I will land in the stars... even if I fail! I want to dance like no one is watching and seize the day, because You Only Live Once. These are just some of pieces of profound gold that I am just waiting to unleash to whomever will listen. Keeping quiet and secluded for long periods of time allows one to really ponder the mysteries of the universe. And boy have I got some real mind blowing knowledge bombs. So stay tuned for more of those free bees. In the mean time, enjoy these fantastic images from the amazing city of Rockford in November!!
Classic landmark!! I think this was just built in fact! There must not be a lot of people around because word hasn't gotten out that this beut of a sculpture is open for photographic business. Check out that color red! I could just eat it up! It's a fantastic reminder to each of us to stand up for what we believe in isn't it?
Ah yes! And look! Just a day into my new life and I am already finding friends! This young gal and her pup were just too for cute. She is a real firecracker of a gal though I tell you-wouldn't even scoot over to let us take a picture together. She has such a passion for life at such a young age. Children, you are the light of the future. We could all learn a lesson or two from beauties like you. Keep on reading girlfriend and shine bright like a diamond!
After a full day of excitement I have found that there is nothing I enjoy better than sitting down at the kitchen table with a mug piled high with honey milk and whip cream. Life is sweet but there's always room for it to be sweeter in my opinion!
With that said I will leave you all with a few of my new found favorite things!! Keep on going for those dreams! They are golden just like you friends!!
Favorite new artist: ENYA. She is fantastic and sounds like a heavenly angel! She also has a real variety to her musical skills and I find her to be TRES inspirational. (TRES is French for Very in case you guys didn't know).
Favorite new drink recipe: Honey Milk with Whip Cream:
Take one cup of milk and put it on the stove.
Then take 4 scoops of honey and mix it in.
Then heat it up until it's frothy.
Then put it in a festively fun mug and load it up to your hearts content with whipped cream.
Can't wait to share next week's adventures with you all!
Peace and Love and Your New Friend Forever Forever,
