Time Away


I often sit and wish that I could be a kite up in the sky,
and ride upon the breeze
and go whichever way I chanced to blow.

if only i could escape the pangs of leaving

Those Last Few Steps You Take Alone


'Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask.
Everything you want also wants you.
But you have to take action to get it. '

In A Short Span Of Time


all's dissolving into cinders,
billowing over what remains.
nearing a complete disappearance,
by seeking the apex of self.
this journey begins august 2nd,
a time to be carried off to the windy city.
where i'll nurture my soul and regain self.
the next leg will begin on september 25.
i will hop the atlantic and transfer till I reach my final destination of
San Sebastian, Spain.
it's there i will stay and work as an au pair till december 20th.

i don't know where my life is headed,
but i fully believe that these drastic string of events
have some how been cosmically induced.

let the adventure begin...

Ace



I soaked up every single minute and basked in the desert heat
with friends on our one night-getaway to
palm springs.

so good.

Mantra


The Pendulum Will Swing.

The Reflection of You


before my eyes, it was you;
and you, and me, and you.
remember those very moments?
us then,
lost not in the past, nor future.

now, frozen eyes
from a living past.

Note To Self

(jaques henri lartigue)


hard times ain't gonna rule my mind no more
-
you must dance your way through life
-
don't look back, keep moving forward
-
no matter what, celebrate everyday

'Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.'

Edgar Degas - Self Portrait 1895

Morning Oddity

As I've mentioned in previous posts...
Every morning, immediately after waking, I start singing a single song that my dreamy subconscious left behind. (or humming)
*Every single morning* The spectrum is endless.
This morning it was :

Bit of the Day


lil'flower extraordinaire,
picked from the patch.
view from the old grape garden
of the mission playhouse in alhambra, ca.

gazing up at the groin vaults,
admiring the embellished arris of the playhouse.

And here, the beautiful historic landmark in Alhambra;
The Mission of San Gabriel - circa 1800.
(mind you, it's been restored/rebuilt several times due to many sever earthquakes)

One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things. ' - Henry Miller

Just to Imagine


Okay, so I'm sure you've had your No Reservations Fix this evening?
Yes, it feels good to have Tony back.

Then, I fell right into a new series
Dance the World.
given, the intro is awful and at times the host is a wee bit much
but come on,
I'm Hooked!
reason: multiple dreams of mine smooched into one big ball
of thrilling envy.
(along with several other Travel Channel shows!)

Nonetheless, it's worth a try?

Roam a Cold Highway


'What else should our lives be but a continual series of beginnings, of painful settings out into the unknown, pushing off from the edges of consciousness into the mystery of what we have not yet become, except in dreams that blow in from out there bearing the fragrance of islands we have not yet sighted in our waking hours, as in voyaging sometimes the first blossoming branches of our next landfall come bumping against the keel, even in the dark, whole days before the real land rises to meet us.' - David Malouf -

Lu On Canvas


Past to Present, We have the Stars.

Elements


'When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.' - John Muir

This very idea pretty much encapsulates my focal point in meditation.
We are but a particle of dust within our galaxy...
even further, a single galaxy among hundreds of billions of others in the
Universe.

Put's things into perspective, No?

What Was

Boating Party by Gustave Caillebotte


I romanticize, what was...

places, times, faces, and tales.
