“Still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled— to cast aside the weight of facts and maybe even to float a little above this difficult world.” ― Mary Oliver

“As this life is not a gate, but the horse plunging through it.” ― Jane Hirshfield, Come, Thief

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.” ― Frida Kahlo I think this quote by Frida is as beautiful as her paintings. I certainly can relate to wanting the connection to others who see the world and life the way I do. In the past I tucked it away and let it knaw at me. Delving into Art has opened me up... As I get older, and hopefully wiser and more authentic...I let my weirdness fly. And then, I don't feel so alone. I believe every person has there own special strangeness. It's part of the soul. It comes out in moments of vulnerability, stillness and love. And laughter. All I know, is I feel it, its wild energy...and when it happens it is pretty special. And I don't feel so alone and strange anymore. Strange is the new normal! This is all just free floating thoughts on self-actualization on this beautiful autumn Sunday.

{Road Taken}

"Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don't want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you're doing here."-Eve Ensler

{Coming to Get Ya}

And I realize that no matter where I am, whether in a little room full of thought, or in this endless universe of stars and mountains, it’s all in my mind.” ― Jack Kerouac, Lonesome Traveler Fall is here and it makes me incredibly happy. The air is crisp and the bold colors that mark autumn's presence are everywhere. My eyes seem to be on fire. No doubt this blog will be contain an onslaught of fall's bliss. Today I got out right during the golden hour and snapped a few shots. As I sorted through them, this picture caught my eye. It symbolizes the entrance into a new season. Outstretched tree branches with sleeves of multicolors reach out, almost to say come with won't you... And of course the surprise bokeh left me camera geek alert giddy! It's time to pull out your scarfs and sweaters, eat them apples and look around to savor the transition to this new season!
