Don't live in fear, it's all here and now baby.


It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been busy with life, given that it is the usual excuse for an absence this long from interneting er blogging... Anyway it's not like anyone read this on a daily basis haha. I'm starting this again just as a simple diary. Although, I'd have to warn you, it could get ugly like Livejournal. Just kidding, hell no! 

It can be a little hard holding onto serveral thoughts, feelings, rationalizations, inspirations, and creative ideas, so I'll use this social media platform as a mental storage unit. I'll let you read the insanity. (It's probably not that insane, just so you know).

Cloudy skies, sunny, 60 degree weather, what more could you want out of today? 
Everyone is in their element of happiness and drinking their heart out like there is no tomorrow I bet.
It is nice to see that it was a great day in Detroit and even here where I live, honestly, everyone was out and about. Even pirates were out. (St. Patrick's day parade)

Yet for some of us, either worked all day, stayed in, or partially stayed inside like me. Today was just a day to cleanse and rid unnecessary worries out of my head. With more time on my hands, my mind tends to wander into the deep forbidden forest of neural pathways into the unconscious's scary down there.   It's like evil dwarfs munching on bunnies down there...what? Nevermind.

I'm almost free from it. All my troubles will slowly fade away thanks to Eckhart Tolle, the author of "The Power of Now."  Also, big thanks to my good friend Ally for sending me the audio book.
I've realized how easy it is to stop wandering and just be present in my body. 
I'm allowing myself to be free from it and just doing what I want to do now. 
Worrying makes no sense, but it's only natural. 
Worrying too much isn't, and tends to rapidly spread like a disease. 

I have everything I want,
I like where I am, and I'm happy.

Serge Lutens

Serge Luten was a make up artist, stylist, and photographer.  School bored him and he spent his time performing make overs on his friends and then taking a photo of them with a kodak instamatic.

"Fantastical in extreme, they have the surreal spirit of Salvador Dali's fashion work. He advocates that women should develop their own creative effects with make-up, whether they want to look natural or artificial."

He is truly inspiring me to go put on make up right now!

Frank Horvat
