This will be a quick post as I'm off to get ready for work in a minute here. However, in an effort to remain true to consistent blogging, here it is!
I heard a theory going around that people who made dream boards of their futures would more or less end up achieving their goals. Having a tangible target point brought their day to day into a new alignment with the big picture. SO, in light of that, I made collages of different goals and desires for decades in my life. I took pictures and now will share them! (They weren't glued down yet when the pictures were taken, so some of the cut outs are a bit crooked etc. The art is in the imperfection?)
40's and Beyond
Here's to the future!

"It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it."-Jacob Bronowski.
I've felt heavy lately. Being burdened with life and with school and with love and with angst -all that fun stuff- I've let my passions slide to the bottom of my priority list, yet again. So here I am. School is done and I'm making my efforts to reestablish balance.
Can I just start by blowing your mind? Please? Seriously...I gripped the edge of my chair when I saw this Pale Blue Dot. That's right. I made the font big so you'd have to want to read it.
And now that you've been flabbergasted into a state where both nothing and everything seems to be incredibly significant and insignificant in the grand scheme of things, allow me to share with you one of my newest favorite artists. William Fitzsimmons has something about his songs that make 3 or 4 minutes way too short.
A bit of a different pace but equally lovable: The Submarines.
For all the creative types (or those who haven't unleashed it yet), here is a TED Talk to connect with the process and the challenges of living a life of creation.
And to finish this post off with: a picture I adore. Something about how the woman is faceless makes it incredibly haunting. The lighting just adds to the very surreal feeling.
