What to say? What to talk about? Well that is the point for me lately–I have been quiet. Maybe I should only be verbally quiet and not so much “off the social networking map” quiet. Maybe I should imagine that I am in Tuscany, enjoying some of the best Gelato I could possibly ever taste…or sit here and continue to enjoy my quiet life. 🙂 No complaints here, just thankful. Lately I have been so busy working on different things and getting my ducks in a row, that I am grateful to have a weekend that my calendar does not have anything marked on it. I love what I do and do not get my wrong, I have no complaints–I just need sleep. No I mean like 12 hours sleep. Yes I can sleep for 12+ hours!!! I know it is crazy! 😉 I had the opportunity to work with the wonderful and talented Janet Manuel last weekend and it was a delightful time. I love meeting and working with new and talented individuals; especially when I learn something new.
So since I have been quiet, I will share a few photos from the beach. I feel it is a great way to end September. I had a wonderful time in Florida a few weeks ago and got the opportunity to just enjoy life behind my lens. From meeting random strangers, making new friends and spending time with old friends, I had a magnificent time relaxing.
Then I fell in love with this Fleur-di-Lis tattoo. Yes I am partial considering my brand but I love the detail and the shadowing. The Lotus flower tattoo is beautiful, bright and colorful as well. You are WAY braver than I will ever be when it comes to needles, tattoos and tattoos that take that long Erica!
The Dalai Lama once said, “Everyone wants happiness; nobody wants to suffer. Many problems around us are a mental projection of certain negative or unpleasant things. If we analyze our own mental attitude, we may find it quite unbearable. Therefore, a well-balanced mind is very useful and we should try and have a stable mental state.”
