“She paints her face to hide a face
Her eyes are deep water.
It is not for geisha to want, it is not for geisha to feel.
Geisha is an artist of a floating world.
She dances, she sings, she entertains you, whatever you want.
The rest is shadows, the rest is secrets.”

“But hearts don’t have locks, she said.
Some do, he replied. There are people who give away the key to theirs for safekeeping. Others are mistrustful and give out several keys just in case. Then there are those who have misplaced them but never cared to look.
What about your heart, she asked.
He smiled.
Your words are the key to mine, he replied.
Never forget your words.”

{ Show them what you’re for }

So build yourself as beautiful as you want your world to be.
Wrap yourself in light then give yourself away with your heart,
your brush,
your march,
your art,
your poetry,
your play.
And for every day you paint the war,
take a week and paint the beauty, the color, the shape of the landscape you’re marching towards.
Everyone knows what you’re against;
Show them what you’re for.
~ Andrea Gibson

Hey hey everybodyyyyy… I’m back!  It’s been a crazy month.  Post-holiday stress, playing catch up, real life, bad weather, illness, birthdays and a trip to the windy city…. But I’m determined to get back to the picture-taking that I love.  It’s always hard to decide what to show off.  There definitely isn’t enough time in my days to style and snap pics of all the gorgeous stuff on the grid that I get my hands on.  *le sigh* I shall give it the old college try though.

Got a little Shiny Shabby, a little Liaison Collaborative, throw in some Uber, and even Gen-Neutral for a look that has me feeling the need to go back on vacation this time to someplace warmer.  South of the border.  Dirty streets.  Colorful old buildings.  Lots of sun.  And even more alcohol.   It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!  Cheers!

{ And all the beauty I have ever dreamed is right here in front of me }

Steal my breath away
‘Cause I’m so moved by you
Deeper than I ever thought
Was possible, was possible, it’s everything, oh

Difference between me and you
It’s all in where your heart lies
And every day’s another chance
So let’s get it right

I am you
You are me
We are one
Take me in your arms
And flow through me
I’ll flow through you

WheatField_FINAL

Did you lose yourself out there
Did you lose faith and give up
Don’t turn away and hide yourself
‘Cause there’s a friend to make along the way

We are the heartbeat and our souls speak
And all the beauty I have ever dreamed
Is right here in front of me, oh
Is right here in front of me, oh
