All three of these photos were taken on the same night. We had a night out without the kids. My very good friend Anna invited us to a party at her house. She has a huge upstairs that is completely open, has fancy lights, a bar and for the evening a beer pong table. Good times! 308 is under the awesome blue and purple lights. 309 was after some kind of drink. The little umbrella ended up in my hair. That is her cool shower curtain behind me. 310 is Anna and I after a few drinks. We have been friends since community college, which was… mumble, cough (15)… years ago. (Good lord where has time gone?) She is one of those friends that no matter how many months or years may pass without seeing each other we can pick up right where we left off.  To me that is what a soul mate is. A soul mate isn’t just one person who you have a lover/marriage relationship with, but many souls whom we spend many lives with through the eons. It’s easy to tell which people hold these souls, because you are drawn to them. Once a dialogue is started it feels like you already know them, because you do. No matter the passage of time you will always be welcome to each other because you are connected. That’s what a soul mate is to me. And yes I believe in reincarnation. Well this blog about my photos turned into something completely different. There’s nothing wrong with that. 🙂

A mere pause from thinking!”

“Drink, and dance and laugh and lie,
Love the reeling midnight through,
For tomorrow we shall die!
(But, alas, we never do.)”
~Dorothy Parker

Wow, this quote was chosen a looong time ago, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t fit the contents of this blog. 🙂

Three more random shots. 299 is of a necklace my Mom got for me for Christmas. It is a tree with a disk that has my daughter’s name on it. I need to get one made with my son’s name too. That way both my children will be close to my heart. I won’t mention the major cleavage going on. 300 was taken on another walk. I like how the shot is just my leg, makes it a bit abstract. Plus that crazy, dark shadow jutting out is pretty neat. 301 is a very similar shot to one I took at the beginning of the series with my actual camera. I like the original one better.

I was alone at night, maybe my husband had fallen asleep, maybe it was the night he had CQ duty. There was left over sparkling wine in the fridge from New Year’s Eve. I poured myself a glass, sat down in front of this thing and took some shots using available light. I like this shot. I like the red colors, the bubbles in the bubbly, the composition. I also enjoyed the drink.
