Thoughts for you...

"The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death — however mutable man may be able to make them — our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light." Stanley Kubrick

Art for you...



 




 




The work of Ditte Haarlov Johnsen is courageous and overwhelming (in both efforts and subjects). Simply put, powerful images and powerful people.

If I were a...

1. Hell yea I would get these shoes I have been eyeing for about a year!
2. And this pretty dress.
3. Then head over to Hollywood Forever Cemetery to watch this flick (my all time favorite...as a 16 year old ;)
4. And dream away the night, heading back here to look at the stars.

Typography of tears...

How often do you cry?  I aways think of crying as both a terrible and terrific thing about being human. Photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher photographer over 100 tears wondering if tears of joy, tears of pain, tears of sadness  emulate different patterns of this human expression.

What makes a good life...

eudaimonia: a life of activity governed by reason

Humans, me, spend SO much time thinking about how to be happy.  We read self-help books, we change jobs, we move across the country, we lose or gain weight, we drink wine, we take walks, we think and think and think about how to get to that place.  At times, it seems almost as though we have lost the ability to actually be happy within the "search."

A great read on the subject here.

Some things and things...

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” Yoko Ono

I really believe this.  In reflection can dreams feel as tangible as memories.  So if you fly to Fiji on a kitty cat in your dreams, maybe, somewhere you really have.  X
Here is to a wonderful weekend of dreams and realities and love and space.  In the meantime...

I think this weekend might call for my favorite summer, be bad cocktail.  Maybe I will try this one! via .

Oops no she didn't.  Oops, yes I did.

I have a ridiculous amazing amount of dried chamomile that good friends brought for me from Israel.  It's too hot to drink and I can;t seem to get on top of making Iced Tea, so I think I've got just the idea! Cold chamomile compress anyone?



I love Elizabeth Moss and I love films with subtle atmospheric terror. I want to see this!

LISTEN!  I am not a huge GP fan.  The things she says and posts kill me a little inside.  And her total public unawareness of her privilege yikes.  I thought people paid publicists to take care of that kinda of stuff! Anyway I DO love the recipes in her cookbook.  And this one... I just love making a huge batch and eating all week.


Speaking of beautiful terror.  I love the work of Ana Teresa Barboza.

Finally, this weeks report on how the earth, moon, sun and tides
affect your day.

Words for you...

180 is something someone told me a long time ago
when I was learning the truth
still learning
when I did not know circles could not hold the night
and gravity could not breath in the sea

it was a sharp thing, a line not a curve in a subject failed 

I am always turning 180 to find myself
and I  look everywhere
and I am not
and I am
with every loss less of myself

I have learned that circles contain everything in fact
every drop of water, every piece of love
even the night with my eyes made in the shape make a beautiful whole

and gravity
I am not sure
I have learned anything
because I can breath in the sea 
under the water I can choose to breath into oblivion
peaceful finding where the holes of my heart - those pieces - have been missing
with that love

and I understand nothing now or then not later.

Art for you...






 I just LOVE these image, lingering with haunting mystery and overwhelmed with beauty.

Floating in pools on a Monday...

It's Monday.  And though we are all "back" to our computers and or job, it is still important to dream. Close your eyes and where else would you be?  Could you be?  Today I dream of simply floating in a pool and staring up ant the sky and trees.  One of the simpler pleasures in life.

Though these pools might not be simple to get to, they are simple in that they are natural and given to us from sweet mother earth.

words for you...

Why does the water lust for the shoreline
a violent soft love
deep & timeless as a universe
I can understand so little
no end
comprehend no beginning
all is beyond my capacity
of all I have learned to learn
only
we go on, each of us,
as fierce as the last and neighboring wave
our passions hold the height of surf
of dreams extend into the risk of our abilities
knowing, unknowing - all of this will diverge into an infinite flatness
part of a scape we cannot see 

do you exist while I am not with you?

This momentum of time, the womb of connectivity
only to be brawn back into the lust of return.

Words for you...

Close your eyes and see the spotted sky 
and know that your breath is not in your
mouth, but in your head, find something
in the knowledge this is possible, know 
this, and know that that which keeps you
afloat can also crush you & your mind's 
breath - but only for a moment. You can
equip yourself, you can not let fear be 
your frequent guest...
with your eyes closed focus on the 
mind breath.

Images for you...

My goodness I am IN LOVE with the work of Amy Finkelstein.  Like melting memories, cities or bodies.... or are they forming?

 "...Photographs now seem as abundant as words, taken in as a grammar or code. My work has become a sort of code, or formal system in my mind: reducing infinite subject-hood to simple planes of matter to be photographed and perceived. I am intrigued by the impulse to comprehend and read this language, and am informed by the context and image body we bring with us to any one photographic object or lens based gesture. Considering all we bring, I tend to eliminate much, reducing the photogenic possibilities down to a blank sheet of drafting film, ink, and a discipline with analog photography. From this place of uncertainty comes some sort of measurable mark. The camera takes it, and we take the image. For my thinking, the process is no longer about specific idea or creative gesture, but about certain distances of form and media yielding to potential."

Warmth for you...

I really love my job.  I get to share moments with people at they are most happiest, most loved, most giving love, most beautiful, most honest, most vulnerable.  This morning I had the privilege to shoot an elopement at City Hall and it was just perfectly lovely.

Anyway, have the most perfect weekend.  I am looking forward to the snow, inside looking out.
Please warm your heart with the most perfect ad in history...

Singer Mara Carlyle, song "Pianni"

Inspiration for you...

"PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO PURSUE THEIR MOST IMPORTANT DREAMS, BECAUSE THEY FEEL THAT THEY DON’T DESERVE THEM, OR THAT THEY’LL BE UNABLE TO ACHIEVE THEM. WE, THEIR HEARTS, BECOME FEARFUL JUST THINKING OF LOVED ONES WHO GO AWAY FOREVER, OR OF MOMENTS THAT COULD OF BEEN GOOD BUT WEREN’T, OR OF TREASURES THAT MIGHT OF BEEN FOUND BUT WERE FOREVER HIDDEN IN THE SANDS. BECAUSE, WHEN THESE THINGS HAPPEN, WE SUFFER TERRIBLY. 
SO, WE, THEIR HEARTS, SPEAK MORE AND MORE SOFTLY. WE NEVER STOP SPEAKING OUT, BUT WE BEGIN TO HOPE THAT OUR WORDS WON’T BE HEARD: WE DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO SUFFER BECAUSE THEY DON’T FOLLOW THEIR HEARTS." PAULO COELHO

Fashion for you


In the meantime an interesting piece on how a little something has been lost for all in today's world of over saturated fashion photography.

Oh hello again...

























via 

It's been oh so long.  I recently looked back at the work I did with LowtideHIGHTIDE and felt I missed myself. As if I was an outsider looking in, or I was not myself.  A teacher once told me about writing, write it for you, if you are interested in what you write have faith others will be.

It seems in order to be inspired sometimes we have to act, we have to find the inspirations - they do not move by our eyes and whiplash us into creativity. We have to sit and think within our thoughts.  The days can pass over us so smoothly, and like a rock to water, we can become soft to it's time and lie there forever until we are a tiny speck of sand. The same particle, but smaller, beaten down by our own choices.

But I choose to reactivate into the world and again sit with my thought.  Here is where visions and beauty are birthed.

Words for you...


“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be a long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.” 
- Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
