I come back to my neglected blog. I miss blogging. Blogging gets my imagination churning and helps me stay motivated to write and make art. When I am actively blogging, I'm always learning something new. I get to see the world through a camera lens. It raises my awareness of all the beautiful moments in a day. And even if no one reads these words, I still get a thrill when I click "publish" and send a post out into the universe with the hope that it could mean something to someone.
So, as cheesy as this may sound, I'm blogging again with the purpose of recording my creative journey. I don't know where it will take me at the moment, but I am so excited to get started!

(Share six-year-old self-portrait.)
In 2006, I was a first year at Randolph-Macon Woman's College. I distinctly remember having absolutely no idea what was going on. Ever. Vandalize what historical hitching post? Wear which colors? Decorate whose door? It was such a strange and wonderful place.
I was really happy to discover, as I reviewed some of my old photos last night, that I took a series of pictures of myself around campus; a practice I didn't really continue as an upper class woman. The series primarily features me looking passive and silly.
Does anyone else have artsy photos of themselves featuring architecture?

And, of course, I am obsessed with Zooey’s hair. She has been cultivating her darling look with her flowing locks for years. One day I hope to achieve the perfect bang… As Zooey has done.
This article made me giggle: Indie Girls Deconstructed.

(Your 5 senses right now.)
(Sight) Catching up on this week's RE-RECs on HitRECord. Miss Aimeecanto has some really beautiful records to share. Plus, it's super adorable when she says butthole. If you are not familiar with HitRECord, check it out because it's amazing.
(Sound) Listening to the Gramercy Riffs: Oh Linda! It warms my heart that this band got it's name from the 1979 cult classic The Warriors. All the best music comes from Canada and CBC Radio 3.
(Smell) Lighting Sunrise incense for inspiration.
(Taste) Drinking ginseng tea. I think everything tastes better out of my Little Red Riding Hood Teapot.
(Touch) Feeling the rhythm of journaling with a fountain pen. There is something very different about the texture of the words, almost like painting.
