More than Meets the Eye

17180-The-Eyes-Are-Useless-When-The-Mind-Is-BlindSometimes it seems I gain a good deal of wisdom in one day. My eyes are open, words spoken to me have deeper meaning, and my heart is able to understand more; at least for a moment.

Normally, I let happenings breeze past me as an observer, but recently I have started to pick up on what I like to call clues, nudges, and I’m learning to follow my gut (at least I’d like to think so). Sometimes it’s hard to take that gut feeling for the intuition I know it is because I want to think facts through with my convoluted mind. It is difficult to accept that I am supposed to do what feels good. I convince myself it should be more complicated than that.

Well, tomorrow it’s on! I will consciously move through my day not only with open eyes but also an unburdened mind. I am convinced it is the only way to truly experience life. Lets make it a great week tomorrow ladies and gents! Stay true to your inner self and open your heart to receive what is already yours.

A Moment of Silence

A Moment of Silence

“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night.” ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

It’s been a while since my last post. This past year was a difficult one. My grandmother was diagnosed with acute leukemia and ultimately passed away almost a month ago. I miss her so much but will ALWAYS keep her in my heart. I am hoping that this space serves as one of my creative outlets during this healing process. stay tuned and thank you for taking the time to check out my space.

Tame Impala | Fox Theatre Oakland, CA

I bought my tickets for the Tame Impala concert a few months ago after being exposed to the band by my DJ friend. I instantly loved the sounds produced by this band. Elephant, gives me flashbacks to younger days when I’d become hypnotized watching the imagery displayed on the screen while watching Disney’s Dumbo. Lines upon lines of elephants marching and dancing  to a base heavy, repetitious beat.

Watching Tame Impala play live last night was euphoric to say the least. The lighting was on point and the projectors seemed to be synced to the output of one of the guitarist thus making sound come to life. The concert ended and we all left, concert T-shirts in hand, all smiles and satisfied with our experience. The Fox Theatre delivered once again an event worth noting.

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”

— Audrey Hepburn
