Jon Rafman, Keith Haring Theatre, 2013.
If Famous Artist Chose Interior Design Instead of Fine Art 
What an interesting concept! How cool would it to be to walk into this theatre. I love the look of ceiling-to-floor art. I think someone should run with the idea... I know I'd be there.

Musings: (Cont)

Don't let the situations that we build up in our minds become bigger than what they are. We all have problems. That's not to be debated, however, we often magnify them to ridiculous dimensions because they are ours, when in reality there are people that would kill to have the small nuisances that we allow to cause us so much stress. Listening in on strangers, and even friends, grievances remind me every day how small the major stressors in my life truly are. 

That may not be very comforting because we are living our lives... the problems that we come across and have to deal with every day we do have to eventually confront. I'm not saying to downplay your issues just because others have it worse; I'm just asking that you try to change the way you confront your problems. It's all about perspective. Try to find the light in the dark.. the good in the bad. The end result is almost always strength gained, and you can never have too much of that.

Musings: 1/28/2014

If your surroundings don't reflect where you want to be in life, change them.
Don't rush anything. Not a thing.
Change your paradigm, change your life.
With our many resources one should never be bored. If you're bored it says a lot about you.
Go learn something.
I love grand over the top gestures.
But I've learned that they are better done in moderation.
You have to learn how to identify win/ win vs. win/ lose situations.
Your energy is undeniable. Harness it. Allow it to flourish.
I try to be more cognizant of the music I listen to these days.. It has a stronger effect on your thought process than you'd think.
Moderation; avoidance of extremes or excesses.
Dogs really are man's best friend.
Everyone deserves a day to themselves. Take the time to reconnect with you.
My body yearns for the beach. Open water. A light breeze.
Behavior studies.

( SIDE NOTE: Beer flavored jelly beans just in time for the Super Bowl. )

Behind the Scenes: A Hair Story in America

Shoot with @Rouge_Jungle. I'll post the pictures as soon as I get my hands on them. I was once again reminded that I'm entirely too awkward and silly (and short!) to ever take the whole modeling thing seriously, but it was fun!

Good times with good people.

Declutter your Brain/ Awareness Practice

Just write/ type for 5 minutes..

no stopping.
you'll be surprised where your mind wanders
forgo proper sentences, punctuation, spelling, etc.

this isn't about that.
everything that's on your mind just let it loose..

Get in my closet!

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

People will put you on this pedestal of being perfect, and then get mad when you don't live up to who they built you up to be. 
A fall from grace, of which you had no place? 
A little askew in a fantasy that's straight laced.

( SIDE NOTE: Sometimes I feel like I try so hard to understand the misunderstood only to have myself looked over. 'Tis life I suppose. )
So tonight I started laying out my vision board. I decided to just focus on the current year instead of the vision for my life as it just seems clearer at the moment. The purpose of a vision board, for those who aren't sure, is to help identify and give clarity to your vision, keep your focus on what you want and to reinforce your daily affirmations. This is just a sneak peak of the beginning of mine.. I still have a long way to go before it accurately reflects all that I want to materialize out of this year. I encourage you all to try it. Flipping through old magazines took me back to high school when I used to cover my composition notebooks with a collage of cutouts... and seeing the words/ things you're drawn to when creating this project is very telling in so many ways.  I'll post the final project when it's complete.
I know I know... you want my shirt. 

I imagine that it will get easier to compose these lists with each passing day..

I made jerk chicken wings last night at midnight.
They were delish.
Stumbled upon this cool post on, check it out here. I'm going to try to start taking the time to put effort into the little things this year, like writing thank you notes, that make a big impact.

 First meal of the new year.
Happy New Year!

( SIDE NOTE: This was us. New Years + A house gathering with friends is way more fun than the club. I see this becoming a "thing" for me. Thanks Ash for having me! :) )
