I found these photos the other day while perusing my various file folders of photos….(ever notice how time really escapes when you get caught up in looking and managing pictures of your life?!!!) phew….it’s hard not to be overwhelmed by the process of it all…(but, happy to say I will not go into overwhelm mode…) My sister and I were talking this morning how easy it is to become distracted when you set out to do a specific task….My Yoga teacher has talked this week how Autumn (with her winds and leaves falling) brings such Vatta energy…(one of the 3 Auyervedic body types) this particular type pertains to “airy” and I made the connection that we are in the current sign of Libra which is an air sign…(both my moon and rising signs are in Libra) so there is a lot of airiness happening to me right now…….. the key is to ground down into the earth….(the way I do that is by wrapping my head and making a “to do” list)…..(so where was I ?)….oh yes…..photos
My Hairdresser gave me this “W” magazine and in it was a whole photo shoot called “Magical Thinking”….this is the opening photo….it really intrigued me on so many levels….. (something about that big moth on her lips)……..The idea that we can create magical thinking by just making a shift in our perception of both situations and the things that surround us….it requires a suspension of judgmental thinking…..on all levels….This is my husband and I (last year) dressed in costumes that I made back in the 90’s…..this is my inner self manifested to the outside….I am most comfortable when I am in the middle of being exactly who I am….(as we all are)….(and bless my husband for going along with the ride….)
I try to keep reminding myself when life seems so chaotic, (I am in the middle of vast amounts of “production” for the Fashion Designer I collaborate with) that to just stop and be still, breathe deeply, and plant your feet firmly on the ground….. (even if your head is in the clouds)…..is truly conducive to “Magical Thinking”…..
When I walked the dog the other day (our evening walk) I saw that the sun was starting to put on it’s daily show here at Asiloverde….the canopy catches the light just so… I ran back into the house and grabbed the camera……
This as we walked down the driveway at the beginning of our walk…..
and this….as we returned from our walk when the sun was lower….
and finally back to the front door, the sun had even more intensity …..
magical thinking….easy to do here at Asiloverde…..
