“Welcome Beauty, banish fear.”

Posted by | Photos | No Comments

“But the woman came to them, She spoke softly, in whispers, but her voice carried across the mountain ranges like sleeping giants, the cities lit like fairies and the oceans-undulating mermaids. Her fingers were branches and her eyes were little blue planets, She said, You cannot hide forever, though you may try. I’ve seen you in the ocean, in the garden. I’ve seen the things you have sewn — curtains of dawn, twilight blankets and dresses for the sisters like a garden of stars. I have heard the stories you tell. You are the one who transforms, who creates. You will go out into the world and show others. They will feel less alone because of you, they will feel understood, unburdened by you, awakened by you, freed of guilt and shame and sorrow. But to share with them you must go out you must not hide, you must dance and it will be hard, you must face jealousy and sometimes rage and desire and love which can hurt most of all because of what can then be taken away.” @FrancescaLiaBlock

Mermaids are Real

You asked me who I thought I was before. I said maybe I was a fish because I love water and you said, you thought a mermaid, maybe.
If you were a mermaid, you said, if you were a mermaid, I was the sea.” Read More

“Sometimes you fall, spinning through space, grasping for the things that keep you on this earth. Sometimes you catch them. They can be the hands of the people you love. They can be your pets- pups with funny names, cats with ferocious old souls. The thing that keeps you here can be your art. It can be things you have collected and invested with a certain sense of meaning. A flowered, buckled treasure chest of secrets. Shoes that make you taller and, therefore, closer to the heavens. A suit that belonged to your fairy godmother. A dress that makes you feel a little like the Goddess herself.

Sometimes you keep falling; you don’t catch anything.

Sometimes you fall, spinning through space, grasping for the things that keep you here. Sometimes you catch them. Sometimes you don’t.

Sometimes they catch you.”ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Another Day in Paradise

You will hear thunder and remember me,
And think: she wanted storms. The rim
Of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson,
And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire.

A Dream Girl

*Carl Sandburg

You will come one day in a waver of love,
Tender as dew, impetuous as rain,
The tan of the sun will be on your skin,
The purr of the breeze in your murmuring speech,
You will pose with a hill-flower grace.

Hawaii through my eyes…

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

The fun part with a photograph is that it “always” tells us a story…

Once upon a time, on the north shore of Oahu…

Pearls can stimulate your femininity and help with self acceptance. They lift your spirits and make you feel calm and beautiful.

In the Native American Indian culture, feathers represented the power of the thunder gods, along with the power of air and wind.

TURQUOISE A truth stone, it symbolizes a time to be honest with yourself. Much will be gained when you become still, and see yourself as your truly are.
