Shades of Gray [photoblog]

This blog was originally posted on MySpace.

Today I have a couple black and white shots for ya. A recent picture (of Jasmine, my pug) and one I took a long time ago (Ice skaters). Jasmine shows strong focus and Skate Love shows blur. I took it a long time ago and it is one of my favorite shots. The blur was intended. I really like how both of these turned out. I decided to put these together because of the strong contrasts in focus.

Would love to know what you think.

~*~ Free Hugs!!! Right this way!!!! ~*~

This blog was originally posted on MySpace.

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. This is a short blog but please read it and made sure to watch the video

I was flipping thru the channels today and I came across Oprah. I was drawn to it in a way. I don’t usually watch Oprah, but there was a video playing that caught my eye.
This video made me cry. I don’t think there is anytime in my life when a hug wasn’t warranted. When a hug didn’t make me feel better, or make me smile. Hugs are an amazing gift that we can give each other any time. Please hug those that you love as soon as you can, and often… and next time you see me… I would love a free hug. Even if we don’t know each other.

Here is the video:

Please let me know what you thought of this. I wonder if I am the only one who was so amazingly impacted by this video.

Does this happen to you?

This blog was originally posted on MySpace.

I am so sick of weird junk emails… do you get these?

I get this email today, i posted it below. You don’t have to read the whole thing cause its a mind sore.

Hmmm, I need more cables! I’m going to tell all. “Can you get me some books for the girls? You know what I mean, right? I can’t begin to explain how it feels to run the race. So now you want to see my form, do you? I’m no longer travelling through the world, but living in it. A miniature quilt was an excellent place to put them. Will I use lick lick for the “Toy, stuffed” or make a new toy? Even the ones that are clearly more girl-centric, but I started collecting years before Everett was conceived. But hopefully some of you will read this, or see us on the BBC, and be inspired to make a change yourselves. Most importantly, just how tiny was that miniature quilt?

I’ve never noticed their knitting and crocheting section, so maybe it’s new. Since his sister lives only a few blocks away, we see her and her various projects a lot.
There’s kitty coming in the window, right over the pinwheel blankie Larissa made for Truman. It’s a nice way to transition into whatever plans I have for the evening.
“See, he isn’t afraid to walk! What could be better?
I’ve been riding a lot thanks to the low car diet my family is still on, and Saturday night was no exception. I really love what I did here, it’s a riff on black and white, formal dress and casualness, domesticity and art and technology. I designed and helped my mom sew all the bridesmaids dresses, in a variety of gorgeous reds and pinks and oranges. Either way the crowd was cheery and knitting lots of socks, just as Larissa hoped.
What could be better?
The way the strips feel, heavy and soft against my legs when I knit them, turning from knit to purl, right side to wrong side, is a heady experience. Most importantly, just how tiny was that miniature quilt?
That’s one of the things Cafe au Play means to me. What’s more, as I was getting my entries together to head to meet Larissa, Everett came running. I’ve never noticed their knitting and crocheting section, so maybe it’s new.
” Actually, that last one made me laugh. She wrote about it here . I thought it might be entertaining to take you through the way I’ve reacted to this whole-cloth life change.
Not only is Licklick made imperfectly, but the very moment I completed him, Truman dunked him in the wading pool. Children under two travel free “on their parents’ laps” but the conductor had given us two seats without me even asking. The night before the fair entries were due, I invited Larissa over to craft together, enlisting my husband to remove the children for the evening.
There’s Truman stuffing his face with brownies.


~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Ok I am guessing you didn’t read that whole thing cause jesus what a messsss! But do you get these emails? Of course I know its probably a virus attachment or whatever, but how freaking weird is this crap!?!?! Do you get these? I get so many of them and they are starting to drive me crazy. And what is up with that attachment? TUNA??? weeeeeeeeeird!

I was talking about the president you dirty people. I see these catchy subjects seem to be a good grabber for ya’ll. This is actually a pimp for someone. It is a very short poem so just hush and read it.

I recently received a blog invite from kelly. I went to his page to check him out and came across one of the most amazing poems I have ever read. I want you to read it too. The link to the blog is… Oprah 2008?.

I don’t feel comfortable copying and pasting this so please use the link. Let me know what you think of it. I wonder if anyone had the same thoughts as me. So please share.

Smoochies,

Well I am going to try desperately to get some sleep. Going on 4 or 5 days without any sleep. Wait… what is today? I actually have no idea when I slept last. Can insomnia cause death? They should call it insainia instead. Seems more fitting. Don’t you think?


well…. Have a great day!!


Smoochies!
