Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Just like a lover I’m there

As I set out on my usual morning jaunt yesterday I was thinking about how we all change ever so slowly and come to except things because of repeated exposure. Just like wild animals become habituated to humans, we too become desensitised to life. Think about it. There are things that in the past you would never have excepted but because of circumstances and repeated exposure things change and you just except it.

It’s not always easy to live life with open eyes and a  fresh vision but it’s important if you are to stay true to yourself. I love my walks with camera in hand, eyes fresh, mind quieted, and ears open. I guess you could say nature is my perfect muse. I fall under her spell and just travel from place to place seeing, really seeing the world without judgement or a plan-I love that.

The story:
Softly she whispers,
as a sliver of light peeks through the trees, I’m there.
Blue so vivid that it hurts my eyes,
fills the space overhead, I’m there
She tickles my legs with a sway in the breeze, I’m there
A deep breath fills my chest,
as a sigh allows residual stress to escape, I’m there
I’m drifting and then falling hard,
under her spell and just like a lover, I’m there

Something in the air

Have you ever had a day when something felt different somehow. Not anything you can put your finger on- just a feeling.  A day when things seemed to fall into place as little bits of magic were wisping through the air.  This happened to me. It was almost as if everything I saw had something special to it. It was like looking through a magic telescope and seeing everything for the first time.

I’m not sure what it means or why these things happen but I had a day like that yesterday. The world just felt right and all my ideas clicked. It was a day when all the cosmic tumblers clicked into place and anything was possible. I felt it but I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I had to laugh when I pulled into Arbies for lunch feeling like my day couldn’t get any better and the girl on the talkie thing said, “would you like a free sweet tea with your order?”  “Mandarin orange please,” I said. It was the best damn tea I’ve ever tasted and not just because it was free.

You know it’s a good day when a happy accident like this happens and the results are purely magical. I took this image in a corner of a greenhouse I was visiting. I must have moved before the image was complete or maybe it was a little magic at play. Hmmmm, well anyway I’m so captivated by this image that I may have to sneak back to see if she’s for sale.

I love days like this- if only it were something I could bottle up and share with all of you. Now that would truly be magic!

BTW just in case your wondering…the weather in my fantasy land is beautiful.

I’m off to Cooly Gardens to do a photo shoot for the up-coming Mad Hatter Tea Party on June 27th at Vanessa’s place.
