Lovely image. One of my favorites. What's it say to you? Well Tyler Shields says glitter is something you can't rid of once it's there... So I think that statement says a lot. Yeah Mr. Shields captures brilliant images. And I can't say I wouldn't be a photographer still without being able to witness his dedication to the craft. It's inspiring to see the evolution. 

I almost met him once at the first LA gallery. 10 feet away wanting my poster signed like I was 18 instead of 30. But he left abruptly. Being awkward, socially weird, I cried and left. I was told to return as it was only a bathroom break. I cried and drove home from LA anyway. 

Because I really wanted my poster signed it is one of the last times I have regretted anything in my life. I doubt the artist would ever be afraid to ask for anything as he did not ask when it came to getting his career. From then on I swore to find a way to live as authentically as I could... Being true to myself and not worrying about anyone else's perception!

“If someone says something unkind about you, live so no one will believe it.” – Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama is also another person that makes me want to live more authentically. I look to his writings and words for the questions, answers and guidance when there are none for me to seek out. I delight in the joy of the world and others in it. The simple things. 

Please be well and be kind to each other. Love yourselves. The more you love yourself the less likely you will be to lash out and harm others. Try to be the most authentic kind of person you can be so you don't regret anything someday.

Enjoy life, love & breathing!

Kisses, m.
