Well it’s official, my latest obsession is velvet. Can’t get enough of this luxe fabric. 

Be Childlike, Not Childish

Here’s a quote from a great little book that I return to every once in a while, Zen and the Art of Falling in Love:

My Daughter…

…had a bad day.

Pulling Things Back

I love the stacked rings look. I love the layered necklace look too.

You know I make my money from being a photographer right?

The Dalai Lama says the secret to true happiness is this: have a purpose, and serve others.

My Ass Is Twitching

In the movie “French Kiss” with Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline there’s these two scenes where they discuss the fact that he’s not a fan of people and not a very ‘happy’ person. Part of the reason is that he doesn’t express his feelings. Now I do express my feelings – just ask anyone.  I’m pretty open about how I feel at the moment and how I feel about a person. Which makes it easier for people to know where they stand with me, I’d like to think.

But I’m not an extrovert. So in a similar way to Kevin Kline I’m not a huge fan of people and not what you would classify as a ‘happy’ person. You know, cheerful, positive, energetic, bouncy….’happy.’ I’m sarcastic, acerbic, intelligent, quirky, with a dry wit. I’d like to think I’m kind, but I’m also awkward and aloof.  Hey, that’s me, what can you do?

This is all to say, that I’m going to be “One of those grumpy old [people] sitting in the back of the cafe going, *said in French accent* ‘My ass is twitching. You people make my ass twitch‘”

Watch the movie, you’ll get it.

Just Get a Backpack

Sarah Silverman shared some insight into being a grown woman.  One of those tidbits, was *I’m paraphrasing* that you don’t need a designer bag, “You put shit in it. Get a backpack.”

As much as I’ve tried to be cute with purses, I always carry a lot with me – camera, tripod, scripts, wallet, etc.etc. – and I think I’ve finally accepted the fact that I just need a backpack.  It’s better for my back, and leaves my hands free for all kinds of adventuring.
