No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

What I Forgot

"You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new." - Brian Tracy

What I forgot to write about yesterday was I went walking by myself. I did ask Michael twice if he wanted to go but the man was sleeping soundly. I gave a thought of staying in bed as well but I felt that little tingle to get up anyway. So, I went walking by myself.

The only difference with going by myself and walking with Michael is that Michael is out there to work the body, get that cardio-vascular going. I don't have a problem with this because I need this too. That said I still like going by myself so I can catch photographs.

Here are some photos from yesterday:

Queen Anne's Lace 8 24 2012

This flower in my Neighborhood Flower set appears to me to be in the family of the Queen Anne's Lace category. I knew of them when I lived in Maine. I loved the name and I loved the flowers. I don't remember them having any fragrance. They seemed like delicate and lacy flowers. One flower with some greenery in a small vase made for a lovely decoration.

Neighborhood flowers 1 8 24 12

I was actually going for the mailboxes above these flowers when I saw this shot. Then realizing the flowers were better looking than the mailboxes. I know they are in the lily family. I liked the use of the broken terra cotta pots as a type of fence around the growing area.

Yellow Flutes 8 20 2012

I brought this photo back because the lady of the house was out watering her potted plants and I wanted to ask her about these flowers. It was an interesting conversation because she didn't speak English and I don't speak much Spanish. I did a lot of pointing and smiling to let her know I liked her flowers. She did say muchos gracias which is thanks so much in English and I replied de nada which is you are welcome in Spanish. If nothing else, we were both smiling and I felt very good about daring to talk to a stranger.

Another one of my fascinations is gateways or doorways. Here are two I found on my walk:

Doorway 2 8 24 2012

I was actually looking at the doorway but then I realized this scrub oak was framing the doorway. This appears very mystical to me.

Doorway 3 8 24 12

This garage door is not phenomenal but something about it caught my eye. I think it is because of the color or maybe the gate along one side and the fox tail plants on the other side.

Sometimes I don't know why I take the shots I do. It must be like shopping, I think something is great in the store but when I arrive home, I wonder, "What was I thinking?" This maybe one of those photos, it looked great at the time and now I am scratching my head.

Something Fun for a Saturday

Do you remember who you were in a past life? If you don't care, pass on by.

Here is a site that may help you to remember:

Past Life Analysis

This is what it told me:

"I don't know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation. You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Germany around the year 1775. Your profession was that of a sailor or shoemaker.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:

Inquisitive, inventive, you liked to get to the very bottom of things and to rummage in books. You have a talent for drama, a natural born actor.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:

The world is full of ill and lonely people. You should help those, who are less fortunate than you are.

Well ain't that something?
