Long Time No See

Hello WordPress World!

I haven’t posted a damn thing since August and now it’s… what… wait… January? Ok yeah it really is January, phew! Since my last post I have completed my student teaching, graduated from college with a BA in Fine Arts with a side of Cum Laude, applied for my teaching license, applying for jobs and should be substituting as early as next week! As you can see I have been uber busy. I would like to pick this up again as it helps my soul.

I still need to finish blogging about my 365 project; even though that seems like a life time ago. I would love to write more movie reviews. I have had the urge to write some poetry again lately. I suppose we will see where my mind wanders.

In the mean time check out my Instagram for lots of lovely photos from my life and surroundings.

Hope this new year finds you all happy and healthy!


These three are once again a random bunch. I like 317. I enjoy the diptych and I like that I put these vertically instead of horizontal. These photos aren’t so great on there own, but together they make something interesting. I love sepia too. 318 is a terrible photo, but it was a terrible hair day, as the wonderful quote suggests. 319 was taken while traveling somewhere in the car. Not sure where we were going, but I like this simple photo. I like the black and white, the detail of the jean texture and that little corner of coat sticking into the frame with it’s shiny silver snap. Sometimes simple is so nice.

Two totally random and unrelated photos right next to each other? Why not put them in a blog together. What the heck? I think I must have been at my lowest weight ever when I took 315. My jaw has never looked like that and has never again, sadly. This photo was taken in my old studio, shortly before we were being evicted. They closed the building to renovate it and everyone lost their spaces. No matter, it was time to move on. It’s a pretty craptacular photo, but it records one of the last times I was there. 316, on the other hand, I really like that one. Not sure what made me pose like that. I used an app on my phone to add the effects. I had been listening to Jerry Cantrell religiously and that lyric seemed to fit nicely. I really do feel that way. Like my body isn’t quite capable of all the amazing things my mind, heart and soul are screaming at me to do.

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.

Another group of random photos. 286: Winter time! The first ice of the season. 287: Sleep, I am one of those people that needs a decent amount of sleep to make it through the day, 7-8 hours at least! 288: I love this shot! I like the contrast, composition and how my hair looks. 289: I really like this one as well. Perhaps because it was winter this one turned out looking like ice.

Three more very random shots. 281 I was sitting at my dinning room table very bored. 282: sitting on the couch relaxing. Sometimes my hair will make a large tangled looking curl and that is what I was photographing. I like that shot. I find it to be interesting. 283: just a random close-up. For some reason this one reminds me of a fish bowl. Perhaps it’s the curve of my glasses or face, but I seem to be inside a fish bowl.

“Consciousness: that annoying time between naps.” ~Author Unknown


“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” ~Confucius

Both of these are pretty random. The first one was in my studio at the Petersburg Regional Art Center. I was trying to get myself and the cool tin ceiling in the shot. It’s not ideal, but I guess it works. That building is closed now and being remodeled, I guess it won’t have those cool tiles anymore. It was taken with my friend’s Nikon D40. The second one was with the crappy cell phone. I was still living at my folks’ house and I was laying on the bottom bunk, trying to sleep. Love how I have purple shirts on in both of these, I do like purple. Neither one of these are particularly good, but they serve their purpose.

Random Thoughts I

My contacts are so dry they are sucking my soul out of my eyes. It is frigidly cold, my feet are like ice cubes. Floor with no carpet is no fun in the winter time. Thoughts are overflowing. So many terrible things going on in the world. At times it seems meaningless. So many secrets to this world; to life. It saddens me to know that we will never know any of them. Do we overcomplicate things with too much thought? I want to create and create and create. I want to be able to make anything and everything. Life is so short I will only accomplish a fraction of a fraction. What will I leave behind? Will I be remembered for anything or at all? My DNA has been passed on. D N A. The accumulation of all your ancestors past. One strand to the next. Each generation doubles. 2 parents=4 grandparents=8 great grandparents=16 great-great grandparents=32 great-great-great grandparents=64 great-great-great-great grandparents to the beginning of human history. Stretching out like an enormous web through space and time. Each of us a vessel of our history. A river of blood flowing through time.
