Chaos


Life is naturally chaotic, but that is the appeal… there is nothing more fun that enjoying life at its best. I’m not saying I enjoy “Drama” or anything of the sort, I am simply stating that not all chaos is bad, and if you look at it for what it really is, it is quite a beautiful thing.

This piece of art hangs in my bedroom, the title is Sunrise over Beekman Place, it was originally done as a set piece for Mame (Black Rose Theatre 2008). I felt that I had put a piece of me into this, and I loved it, so after the run of the show, it made it’s way home with me and now adorns my bedroom…

Standing Tall


Throughout life we have to do things that we do not always want to do, but we must stop and remember the reasons why we do these things. Are they for the right reasons? I know that when we face some obstacles we tend to want to run, but we have to think about the others in our lives, and we have to stand up for those that are not able to run… we have to speak for the ones that are unable to speak for themselves. We have to look that fear dead in the eyes and go into it full blast to protect the ones we love… no matter what.

American Hope


For the past eight years the country of my birth has been in the deep darkness of a regime that has been unpopular and detrimental. The lies and hatred that the last eight years has spread throughout the nation like a cancer, and it has even spread into other countries. It would be conceited of me to think that America has a direct impact on every country, but I do know that every country impacts one another, we are all in this together… what happens to the U.S. will have a ripple affect, just as if what happens to France, Australia, India, Britain, etc will also have an equal effect on the rest of the world. Today History was made in my country, and our country is filled with hope for President Obama… a hope for change… a hope that he can lead us out of the darkness and into the light. I sincerely wish him the best, and I hope that he can lead with nobility and honor that our country has been lacking…

“The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep... But, America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there.”

~President Barack Obama

Mundane


When you look at something you never can quite see it, you must look beyond… look deep into it, only then do you see what it truly is. Most often as we go through our daily lives we glance at things but we never look, we never see the beauty that is inherit in the mundane, that is the downfall of the routine.

This is the main breakroom at my place of work… we have two smaller ones, but this is the larger one with all the goodies. I thought this shot was interesting, and I was the only one in the room at the time, and It just struck me as a beautiful moment.

All You Need....


Love is one of those emotions that defy all logic, it constantly provides you with surprises and supreme joy as you continue your journey to your destiny. I’m not necessarily talking about romantic love, love comes in many different forms… it could be the love from a friend or the love from a family member… Love helps us move forward, it gives us hope, and sometimes it seems that when we are running low, someone unexpected comes along and shows us that perhaps there is a little more than we expected.

“All you need is Love”~ John Lennon


About the Photo: This Statue was outside the front entrance to Northpark Mall in Ridgeland, Mississippi… I’ve been there a million times and never notice it, kinda shocked me.

Best Mate!

\

A friend once told me that once a mate, a mate forever. I believe that whole heartedly, friends are a rare commodity, and should be honored and cherished. I am very lucky for the friends that I do have in my life, and I know that friends do come into your life, and they do occasionally drift out… but they will always remain in your heart.

This same friend painted this Aboriginal art, it signifies her home country of Australia…

Do it...


The world is full of unknown adventures waiting to be had, and I am just waiting to get out and have them. Time for my first adventure is approaching fast, and I can hardly contain the excitement… Someday, I hope that people look back and say that they wish they could have seen just a few of the places that I have seen, and perhaps they will actually do it. I do not seek to inspire envy, because there is no reason why life can not be lived, it is meant to be lived. Most people look at life as going through each day as a task… I wake up and go to work, and that is it… No, there is a whole world out there, and if you do not at least try to see it and touch it… there is no point. Me, I want to touch it… and I think I will.

"Do it Now… There is only Now, Right Now” – George Balanchine

Photo: This is my friend Rand’s refrigerator, she has been many places and seen many things… I admire that quality in anyone…
