The rhythm of his breath as he slept always calmed her...

I know I've been remiss in my blogging for quite a while, but I'm going to try to do better. It's beginning to be more necessary for me to be able to express myself in words and in images. This is an image I took last fall during my annual trip to New Mexico. It's one of my favorite mannequins. I have a new VERY favorite mannequin that my partner, R, gave me for Christmas. Her name is Siri. I'll be posting images of her here too soon. If anyone is following these posts, please send me a message and let me know you're out there! It will give me incentive to write more often if I know someone is out there.

Live it

Live it, originally uploaded by artouttamymind.

I may finally be beginning to believe that my story matters. That I others and to myself...That things manifest themselves just when we're ready for them. That magic lives all around us if we'll just open our eyes to it.

When I concentrate on it, I can see magic in my life. When I don't let the world work on me, when I stop and breathe and let myself be still, I can see the many wonderful things that have been dreams quietly coming true. Especially this past year.

Now I know the wonder that can happen when you open yourself to life without restrictions. I see possibilities all around me. And I feel love surrounding me because I finally learned to open myself and let myself be seen, cracks and all.

This is your year.

Laugh from your soul.

Dream even BIGGER.

Live in the moment.

Stop comparing to others.

Be joyous in yourself.

Strive for contentment.

Add memories, not things.

Give with no expectations.

Find beauty in simplicity.

This is your year. Live it.
