“Letting go 

doesn't mean that you don't 

care about someone anymore. 

It's just realizing that the only person 

you really have control over 

is yourself.” 

― Deborah Reber

sometimes the quotes i add are
related to the photo, or the feel
of the photo, and sometimes, they're
just simple reminders to myself
about life. 

and just maybe, you need the same 
reminders that i do :)

Against the Wall

“When the world is at your back, 

and your heart is at your feet...

the best way to go on is to just "be".” 

― Jennifer Megan Varnadore

... put on a pair of 

fishnet stockings 

and find your 

inner sexiness!

Nia Vardalos

sometimes, a simple picture from

behind can be so hot!

Tired Days

Yes, i know,
it's been hit and miss
with my photos lately.

With everything going on
it seems exhausting just thinking
about hauling out the camera,
let alone try and be creative with

Some days, it seems as if
i am Indiana Jones in his
movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark"
Imagine the scene where he's
running down a tunnel, and a
huge rolling rock is thundering
its way after him.....
Yep.  That's how it feels.

(peek-a-boo from Sadie!)

“I'm smiled out, talked out, quipped out, 

socialized so far from any being, 

I need the weight of mortal silences to get realized back into myself.”

The theme of the day was "Hand(s)" -
to make a photo using hands in a
creative way.

The Beatles' sang:
'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.'
First single.
Fucking brilliant.
Perhaps the most fucking
brilliant song ever written.
Because they nailed it.
That's what everyone wants.
Not 24/7 hot wet sex.
Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years.
Not a Porsche...
or a million-dollar crib.
They wanna hold your hand.
 -David Levithan,
        Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

In the end, I think that's what we all want,
that special someone who is there,
just to hold our hand.
Now that is Love.

There is nothing ugly;

I never saw an ugly thing

in my life:

for let the form of an object

be what it may, --

light, shade, and perspective

will always make it beautiful.

-John Constable

i am always fascinated by light,
how will it play across my skin?
what shadows will be cast upon me?
i prefer sunlight to artificial
especially early morning
and late afternoon

Other Self

“Perhaps we shall learn, 

as we pass through this age, 

that the 'other self" 

is more powerful 

than the physical self 

we see when we look into a mirror.” 

― Napoleon Hill

how often we judge our self, 
our worth, by what we see
in the mirror.  all of us are 
so much more than that.....
so much more.

“It's not worth our while 
to let our imperfections disturb us always.” 
― Henry David Thoreau

yes, i am fiddling around
yet again
with some of the options
i'm still learning to use.

as i write this, it is Friday night
and one more work day to go.
Happy weekend to YOU!

Hot Body

ok, i admit
its a cheesy title!

i've been hitting
the gym this week
as i started my own
30-day plan --

my goal:  10k+ steps a day

i play "mind games"
in order to keep me going:

""can't start dinner preparations until you hit the 10k mark! ""

If you're hungry -- you hurry up and walk the dog! hahahaha

Run Free

“Maybe some women 

aren't meant to be tamed. 

Maybe they just need 

to run free 

until they find someone 

just as wild to run with them.

-Carrie Bradshaw” 



you just need

a cloudy day......

“When thunderstorms roll in,

you make a choice to either

succumb with tears to the gloomy downpour

or smile and look for rainbows.”

― Richelle E. Goodrich

i feel like i've had a tough go of things

for the past month of so.

i was without my cell phone, as it was either

lost or stolen, and i wasn't sure which.

it seems as if every day there was something

to batter me down --

but i am a fighter

and *knock on wood* if feels as if things are

finally becoming better again :)

Three Lives

.... and maybe we're not moving after all!
It will be up to someone else, not me,
if this blog disappears, it WILL be posted
on Wordpress ..... but this venue has worked
so well for me over the years.....
and new tricks are hard for this old dog to learn!

“All human beings have three lives: public, private, and secret.”

― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

when you think about it, it sure seems true

so many of us have sides that we never let

certain people see.  take me, for instance,

i have a “work” me, and “family” me, and

then this me …. a little outrageous, daring

and yes, secretive.

About a year ago, someone at work

was saying good morning to me —

“Good Morning, Gal !”

*gulp*  was my secret out???

If so, he never said another word about it.
