love on my mind.

future engagement ring, personified. for as long as i can remember i have not bought the hype involving diamonds acting as the representation of true love. love and diamonds are just a simple example of the most successful and nefarious marketing campaign of all time. boring in their commonality and the means of how most are extracted is stomach churning. but oh how the world turns, now we have access to conflict free diamonds and tons of independent jewelers and artisans to construct an ideal testament to love manifested in a ring. my man i hope you are reading, go to these three sites and make our dreams come true. as an aries i am apparently meant to wear diamonds on the left side of my body for luck. ha. the gods smile on me.

I like elephants A LOT. Always have. When you do a little new age level research about animal meaning; it doesn't matter if you consult western, eastern or "observe in nature"  sources, the song remains the same!
Elephants rep responsibility... HARD.  They take great care of their family, peeps and children and are serious when it comes to sensitivity. Walking and talking Ralph Tresvant followers.  Some also believe they bring wealth and good luck. Does responsible behavior lead to wealth and good luck? I am not sure, but I do know where you can find this elephant necklace on sale! HERE!

somehow it all feels like it's slipping away.....

 Who remembers the quote from my "post title?" ?????????????????????????????????????????????
It's totally from Dirty Dancing!!!!!!!
Max Kellerman feels like it is all slipping away.... I have been feeling way TOO  close to this sentiment and I am concerned about whether this photo is how I am going to end up. Something has got to give! This is cry for help.

unified field.

it has been a long time.....needed to think about what i want to say and express. want to be deliberate and specific and of course....unified. so the only thing to say and post next is.

One of the primary responsibilities of art is to reflect the world we live in. There should always be diversity in the perspective, and not all films should be born from the same studios or say the same thing in the same way.  Whether we consider ourselves artists or not we all want to be listened to and hopefully understood, whether it is by few or many. I think art should be something we are puzzled by, excited by, challenged, in some way reactive to, even ambivalent.

So here is an offering.

heroes and broken traditions.....

Birthdays have always felt like New Year's to me. Much more than January 1st... Reflection boo is what it "tis" about...So last year two of my friends got me an "astrological chart" that when next Wednesday hits I still have not seen.. Upon reflection, maybe they can get their money back and get me this instead...
get it here clowns!
I would get it myself BUT here is where the broken tradition is coming to play. I am used to receiving a tax return and with said return I buy a humble birthday present for self and store the rest for rainy days. This year the Feds are playing me H-A-R-D. Those suckas claim my unemployed/underemployed self owe them some dough lo. Unless you are setting up a personal workstation for me at the Franklin Mint it ain't happening. 

I want to end this post on a happy note. So without further adieu, Heroes.

Sometimes something or someone comes along and reminds you of the person that you had intended to be, the way you imagined you were going to live your life.... A hero. The man on the right is a HERO. I thought one day my little sister and I would produce these kind of shirts and live the dream. I am grateful that this man has put me back on the yellow brick road.

Life as you know it is about the change in a magnificent way. Uranus, the planet of sudden revolution, innovation, and sometimes chaos, will enter your first house of identity today and remain there until 2019. During the next several years you'll undergo a radical shift in personal development. Your appearance and tastes might change, and your relationships will become more focused on supporting your need for individuation. You'll be ready for something different.

maybe i just need sequin shorts....

spring must be coming...

As the title of this post suggests spring must be coming, because lately I am inspired by EVERYTHING. maybe it is because we are solidly in my birthday month :) or maybe it is because I am making movies.. but Magic is all around. What I really need though is a new scent, like need, must have, pant, pant, pant...

I think this is my future.... come to me L'artisan Chasse aux Papillions....

what do you want for your birthday?

jigga, jigga, jigga.....

too much?

It takes a VERY special person to pull the above looks off. Sentimentality can lead one to questionable fashion choices: exhibit A - I have a thing for pandas and elephants, Exhibit B- the brown bear version reminds me of my first friend and travel companion "Snuggle."

world peace

Meet my future wardrobe. A gift from the gods after reading about porn and society this morning.
A case for hobbies may have been a better title for this post, because I want to make a case for hobbies. After reading the article discussing 13 year old girls uploading suggestive images of themselves to FB,  in order to get a "protective reaction/proof that their boyfriend loves them response;" made me think of a male friend of mine telling another mutual female friend of ours that she "needed a hobby." He said this after patiently listening to her obsess unrepentantly about her dating life. "Yeah.... she needs a hobby." So do the DUDES that followed the 13 year old girl article, please insert hobby here, because they would rather watch porn than have sex with flesh and blood humans. No judgment, because I think I would rather get it in with these clothes.... Cheers to hobbies :)

I'm sorry Brandon i try to resist, but I can't... it's cinematic and that's my jam! Riccardo, I want to go to there!

in the words of molli.. "your new one act..."

If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you’ve done and whoever you were and throw them away. What are we, anyway? Most of what we think we are is just a collection of likes and dislikes, habits, patterns. At the core of what we are is our values, and what decisions and actions we make reflect those values. That is why it’s hard doing interviews and being visible: As you are growing and changing, the more the outside world tries to reinforce an image of you that it thinks you are, the harder it is to continue to be an artist, which is why a lot of times, artists have to go, “Bye. I have to go. I’m going crazy and I’m getting out of here.” And they go and hibernate somewhere. Maybe later they re-emerge a little differently.

the opening ceremony post that will never be

so.... even though i won the contest and did a week's worth of photos for OC, they are not going to run my blog post, because the color way i selected is being discontinued. which truth be told i am kind of happy about, because i was originally going to go for bright yellow, but it was unavailable at the time. so i went with the green with red accents and i just saw the yellow version on the 11 year old character in Somewhere. I am slowly but surely trying to become more of a woman so maybe i made the mature color decision :)

 ariel and i blissed out from intention filled jewelry...

my "sag" fjall craves the same food as me!
