Some Spooky Art…

Listening now…

 

(Skip to  1:05 for song)

Hey friends! Sorry I have been a bit MIA lately…

If you have followed me for awhile, you know this blog goes through ebbs and flows often…

I start a new amazing career opportunity on November 6th and am very excited and feeling extremely blessed. It’s with a very well known company with values, morals, and a mission I really respect and stand behind.  The benefits are amazing, the office is stunning, and they are dog friendly. YUP.

It’s pretty normal for me to come back from not blogging after a month with a spooky post. However, it’s also Halloween! So….it’s perfect.

You know what’s also spooky, though?

 

Accepting less than you deserve

Selling yourself short and knowing you are capable of more than you are doing

But not even trying for fear of failure

Not letting yourself see the value of a good hard mistake

Comparing ourselves to others

Forgetting that we are one in a million

Not calling ourselves out when we need to

Misinterpreting other’s opinions of us for a solid definition of who we are

Swallowing that idea of us into our core being ; holding it there for way. too. long. 

Life tip

The only time it is every okay to wear someone else’s mask or personality is Halloween.

Hints of fall…

Listening now…

 

 

I see hints of fall all around me already.

Living on the mountain top you see the tippy tops of the trees changing very quickly.

August seems non existent and before you know it, the trees are almost all orange.

I am a local leaf peeper and on the way home this weekend I had mom pull over to get these photos with my camera! People probably think I am a tourist but that’s okay.

And every time we wonder
What we left back in your hearts
Could you see we’re dreaming
Though our minds just fall apart
But we will end up somehow
With a peaceful mind
And you are leading me now
To the site where I flew from you
When your pace just scared me blind
We will come back and joke of days
When I sold you to the unkind
We will end up somehow
With a peaceful mind
And you are leading me now

 

 

 

The art of love

Catch a boat to England, baby,
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone,
Wherever I’ve been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues run the game

Send out for whiskey, baby,
Send out for gin
Me and room service, honey
Me and room service, babe
Me and room service, whoa
We’re livin’ a life of sin

When I ain’t drinkin’, baby
You are on my mind
When I ain’t sleepin’, honey
When I ain’t sleepin’, momma
When I ain’t sleepin’, well
You know you’ll find me crying

Catch a boat to England, baby,
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone,
Wherever I’ve been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues run the game

Livin’ is a gamble, baby
Lovin’s much the same
Wherever I have played
Wherever I throw those dice
Wherever I have played
The blues run the game

Maybe when I’m older, baby
Someplace down the line
I’ll wake up older
So much older, momma
Wake up older
And I’ll just stop all my tryin’

Catch a boat to England, baby,
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone,
Wherever I’ve been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues are all the same

-Blues run the game by Jackson C. Frank

October is in the air!

Listening now…

 

It’s here! It’s here! My favorite month of the year. 

 

In October we, along with the trees, start a new beginning and a new end. Things slow down, we get ready to settle into nighttime earlier, and we rest. 

Did you know that when you see the brightest trees in the fall that that means they had a particularly harsh winter the year before? So the most beautifully colored trees have been through the hardest of times…. something to think about.

 

“October is about trees revealing colors they’ve hidden all year. People have Octobers as well.” -JM Storm

 

“I’m so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers.”- Anne of Green Gables

 

“Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter…”- Carol Bishop Hipps

 

“Listen!

The air is rising and the wind is wild with leaves,

we have had our summer evenings,

now for October Eves!” – Humbert Wolfe
