Post Secrets

I am sitting at my best friend Ali's house, we were bored, and looking at some internet websites. She introduced me to a website titled The website consists of ordinary people, who write their secrets anonymously on postcards,and send them to the post-secret address. A few were extremely powerful and one actually put tears in my eyes. They post new secrets every Sunday. Check it out!

resort fashion

 2010's Resort Collections either consisted of busy prints that don't match. Or simple black and white silhouettes. I love both but, I have been drawn to simple black and white silhouettes. They are so effortlessly elegant this year.

Florence + The Machine - Dog Days Are Over (2010 Version)

stories of peoples lives through light


My best friend Jillian sent me the link to a photography website. Fumbling around I fell in love with these photographs. People are fascinating. There is no photograph I like more than a photograph of an interesting person. In my mind we are all interesting. My photography teacher once said, 
"that photography is a story told through light."
 Thanks Jillian for your infinite wisdom, and constantly sharing amazing art with me.

just me

"Some day I will have something important to say" said by me.

Visual Inspiration

Through the Wise Words of Dr Seuss

A person's a person, no matter how small
The more you read, the more things you'll know. The more you learn, the more places you will go.
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothings going to get better. It's not.
From there to here, here to there, funny things are everywhere!
 I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies! 
You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.

Think and wonder, wonder and think.

The storm starts, when the drops start dropping
When the drops stop dropping then the storm starts stopping.

This mess is too big and too deep and to tall. We can't clean it up! We can't clean it up at all! 
My alphabet starts with this letter called yuzz. It s the letter I use to spell yuzz a ma tuzz. You ll be sort of surprised what there is to be found once you go beyond Z and start poking around 
My uncle ordered popovers
from the restaurant's bill of fare.
And, when they were served,
he regarded them with a penetrating stare.
Then he spoke great words of wisdom
as he sat there on that chair:
"To eat these things," said my uncle,
"You must exercise great care.
You may swallow down what's solid,
but you must spit out the air!"
And as you partake of the world's bill of fare,
that's darned good advice to follow.
Do a lot of spitting out the hot air.
And be careful what you swallow. 

When he worked,he really worked. 
but when he played,he really PLAYED.
I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros - Home - Official Video

Everything about this video makes me smile

Jónsi - Boy Lilikoi

You know how sometimes a song can match your mood, a feeling, a moment in your life, and it will always be there. Many songs off the new jonsi album have decribed my summer so far. The new album by jonsi, former Sigor Ros member, is perfect the perfect summer album. I just got back from spending the day at my friends house near the beach, and this unoffical video seems almost to perfect.
