From May 21, 2009 to May 21, 2010 I will be participating in a challenge to take a photo every day for 365 days.
They say that "life is journey... enjoy the ride". I hope this project gives a good view of my ride this year...
Truth has power. And if we all gravitate toward similar ideas, maybe we do so because those ideas are true... written deep within us. And when we hear the truth, even if we don't understand it, we feel that truth resonate within us... vibrating with our unconscious wisdom. Perhaps the truth is not learned by us, but rather, the truth is re-called... re-membered... re-cognized.. as that which is already inside us.
This picture, of course doesn't capture the true amazing ring that was around the moon tonight... brought back the feeling tone of New Year's Eve in Joshua Tree... a similar moon greeted us that night as well. But a sight like this is ample evidence for the love beauty intelligence that IS this reality.
I'm going to be taking a lot of pictures of my school for the next week or so. We are working on doing a self study to attain WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) Accreditation. It's a pretty big deal and the photos are going to become part of the final product... it'll be fun!
There is an impulse within us all - a creative urge, a quest - that is compelled to manifest. We can absolutely trust and yield to it, and as we do so we will receive feedback from the universe in the form of guidance and inspiration about the purpose for which we were born.
Ok, so I'm sure that plenty of you know exactly what this is, and are not surprised by the sight of it. NOT ME!
I mean, I had heard of rose hips... but had no idea that they actually came from a rose bush and that it was a fruit! I was pretty excited when I saw this little guy after all our rain last week... I want to eat it, just to see what it tastes like, supposed to be really good for you.
I'll let you know.
Oh, didn't post yesterday because I had a WILD day. Took the photo, but no time to post. Now playing a little catch up!
Reconnected with two great people yesterday! Doug and Stacy were the first people we met in Ojai when we first moved here 5 years ago... we FINALLY got together with them last night for dinner. Good stories, big plans, and really enjoyed catching up!
The rain continues to fall. And I continue to love it! I'm shocked at myself really, I was so sick of clouds and rain, it's one of the main reasons I wanted to leave Michigan... but it's a welcome change of scene. The thunder today was soooooo nice and deep and rumbly.... The river behind the house is flowing like mad! I went out back briefly tonight and thought it was a big wind about to blow in my face from the sound of it, then I realized it was water flowing!!! Hope the weather breaks so I can go take some pics of it in the next couple days.
Had a fun morning watching Agape live streaming for the first time... ALMOST like being there. :)
Then it started to rain, so I did work on my BTSA (hell) I'm not going to explain it, it's a new teacher nightmare here in California (thanks so much G.W. Bush for passing NCLB). And then I allowed myself to get lost in what is fast becoming my TRUE passion... I started to make a website for my photography!
So, this is not so much a great picture (in fact it's terrible) as it is an amazing thing that we figured out today!
A co-worker of mine has been talking about how netflix has movies that you can watch instantly on your computer. Well, I got to thinking that why can't you just connect your computer to your TV and watch it on there, people have been doing that kind of thing forever, but I hadn't thought about it for a live-streaming deal...
Well, we got it all hooked up tonight! So we can pick a movie online, and watch it from the internet on the TV RIGHT NOW.
Cracklin' Rosie, get on board We're gonna ride till there ain't no more to go Taking it slow Lord, don't you know Have me a time with a poor man's lady Hitchin' on a twilight train Ain't nothing there that I care to take along Maybe a song To sing when I want Don't need to say please to no man for a happy tune
So, I hadn't had enough of the Agape experience yet, so I had to go to the service today. It was JAMMED! Such an amazing scene... so many bright and shining people there. The best was that they seated us meditation participants right up in the choir loft, and we got to be the "choir" for the songs that Rickie had written and taught us on the retreat... such a TREAT!
And to get to spend the afternoon with my great pal Renee was really sweet as well... woo hoo!
