“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” – C.S. Lewis
Last night I viewed my previous image via my cellphone, and I felt a little knot in my stomach. It barelyresembled the piece that I had looked at on my computer.
I can’t be certain, but I’m thinking that creating images that reflect our mood for the moment might be a bit risky. 😉
Anyway, I wanted to counteract that crazy color scheme this morning… with something simple, calm and serene. A dreamy view of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Monica Pier.
Also… about the going back to school…
I don’t want to get ahead of myself (yet again), but I can tell you that when I decided that it was something I wanted to do, I had NO question about it. It was like one of those Aha moments, when you just KNOW that it’s the right place, and the right time.
Truth be told, I have a little vision in my head that is sticking with me… and I need to learn a few skills that will help me to help others. Doesn’t everyone want to make the world a better place? So… learning a little more about writing, and graphic design for print, fits perfectly into the mix and will help me bring my plans to fruition.
That’s about all for now. Have a beautiful, blessed day!! Love you all!!

I am checking another item off of the 55 things list; took a photo underneath a pier. In all honesty, it may very well be the first time that I even stoodunder a pier! That I can remember, anyway. We did lots of family outings at this beach when I was a kid, so it’s pretty hard to say.
What’s funny is that I took quite a few shots, but the lighting is terribleunder there! This was the best I could find, but the only thing that was a little “off” about it was that it captured my friend taking her photo, too! I thought about cropping it, but it just didn’t seem right. Plus her being there is what makes it so special! A special memory indeed! So… this image is very personal to me. 🙂
Good times and crazy friends make the best memories.
There were too many straight lines for my taste, so I did a little distortion and made the colors more vibrant. I actually like this one very much.
Anyway, I’m going to slow down on the edits now. Do you know that I was looking at my numbers and in January I did 98 posts! That’s an average of 3.16 a day! No wonder I was feeling like I was in high gear!
