I must confess, I am "ochentera" to the bone, a real 80's kind of gal. My "go to" music when I am happy, sad or angry is always something from the decade of leg warmers and parachute pants. One of the finest bands OF ALL TIME (well, in my humble opinion) is "The Talking Heads". One song in particular comes to mind as I make my way through this crazy thing called life, a song that makes me feel at peace with the world and connected to the planet. "And She Was" was written by David Byrne about a chick he knew in high school who would go drop acid by the Yoo Hoo factory, but I always feel it is less about a drug trip and more about accepting and embracing and enjoying where we are in life and the simple moments of just "being".
I have been somewhat stifled the last few months, not making enough effort to embrace being single and the new life I have. One of the things that I must do is make this house MINE. It is time to take down the old photos and bring new energy to my daily environment, do a spring cleaning and maybe even bring in a shaman for a "limpieza". To that end I have been going through the last nine months of photos to select a few to print to create an environment that will allow me to feel like the girl in the song, happy with where I am, in a place where I can just "be".
And so I bring to you a picture post, if it was in a gallery the show would be called "And She Was", a selection of photos that make me happy that will soon be adorning my walls....
Happier still when I am having adventures with my boy
Connecting with culture and history, powerful moments
all the LIFE under that water
(He brings me more joy than anything on the planet)
