The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible. ~Vladimir Nabakov

Open doors to 2013

Goodbye last year and hello a new one.  It's actually quite refreshing to start a new year.  I love new beginnings.  2012 was very good to us, as we are humble people absorbing appreciation in everything life offers.  The simplicity in having mainly our good health and a solid roof over our heads, food on the table is more then plenty to be grateful for.  Our holiday festivities were simply amazing and to have the family over for our traditional meal was such a blessing and I loved having all of my family under the same roof.  

The future holds an open door to all possibilities, new adventures that will come this year filled with so many wonderful things to look forward to.  With last year's so many inquiries to photograph weddings, I've finally decided that this is the year I will branch out in this direction.

As the end of the last years' month peeled the layers to my creative painting area of life, I find myself drawn to doing more of this in the near future.  I also have a commission artwork to paint a large 4 foot x 6 foot canvas and I am very excited to paint this piece.  I find it fascinating that the power of "the secret" plays such a huge role in my life.... and as I learn daily by trial and error to grasp this way of living, I learn so much in the progress.

Few of my New Year's resolutions are to yell less, listen better, paint more, gamble less (all facets of life), drink less alcohol (lol), drink more water, create peace and zen in our home and get my body toned!  There...  I think considering all, it's very doable.

My photography has taken a new direction into areas that were not even tapped into less then a year ago.  With two companies already freelancing me to photograph their finished projects, I am very excited to continue this path with endless possibilities.  I truly open the doors to 2013 and welcome all it has to offer.

May the New Year 2013 be wonderfully prosperous to you all and may you find yourself on a joyful journey of enlightenment.

Love and Peace to all,

A beautiful mind

One of the most powerful quotes I have ever read thus far.  It's so perfect.  This woman had one beautiful mind. Words of a true artist.

"The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this:  A human creature born abnormally, inhumanely sensitive.  To them... a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death.  Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create -- so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, their very breath is cut off...  They must create, must pour out creation.  By some strange, unknown, inward urgency they are not really alive unless they are creating."   - Pearl S. Buck -

Wish upon a STAR

Another year has passed and one of my favourite gift exchange has taken place.  Oh I just love this special time of the year for so many deeper reasons then gift giving, but I have to admit I look forward to this so much!  A friendship tradition takes place of exchanging a gift that keeps on giving.  My girl friend and I exchange our Christmas stars filled with goodies.  The trick is to get creative, fill the star with about 20 bucks of interesting things we each like, while the space is pretty limited.  The memories build, the laughter sure was intoxicating and the moments are so precious and priceless.  I was not going to have any photos posted of me as I was very casual with no make up and a mental patient looking type headband with a big button on top, what I thought covered my bad hair day!  lmao!   She insisted we have a photo together so it had to happen. :)  Thanks so much for being part of my life.

Love you girlfriend.  ♥
