When is somebody going to understand


the love I hold inside?

Who will experience it?

In the end

we all want to stay warm.

This picture got me thinking about humans in general. We get so caught up in money, status, material things, that we forget about being human. Take away the money and stuff and what are we left with? We are left with who we are; our personalities and our basic needs: food, water, shelter, warmth.

I think it'd be a grand idea to be put out of my normal life- to experience what it's like to have those 4 basic elements of survival as things I worry about. Yes, it would be difficult. I would probably whine a lot without my pillow, my car and my lack of deodorant. Just surviving. Think of it.

I think the first night, maybe two, would be an adventure! I could go without food for a couple of days, find water in drinking fountains, use my arm as a pillow, whatev. I would like to take advantage of peoples' hospitality and ask if they have room for me for the night, a spare apple, a toothbrush. Can you imagine it?

Imagine that, every day. The adventure begins to fade as survival takes its toll. We're not meant to simply survive. We're meant to serve those who simply survive. What have you done?

Some dance to remember, some dance to forget.

Some dance for the fun of it. I dance for all three.
There's something magical in the body's movement. Something that expresses that which we cannot put into words.
We leap with bliss, break it down with ferocity, turn slowly with sorrow. The body can tell it all.

I've been reading


the Old Testament lately
and man,
God has fury. You don't want to cross Him.

I love Him. : )

Gah!


Poor body girl. What, is her head in a plastic bag, or does she enjoy the taste and smell of sand?
May I repeat...Gah!

There are times

when you just want to get away. Take a few days for yourself.

I miss Guatemala.

Beauty from pain.


It amazes me, the things that some people do.
This foot corset is beautiful, but get real, how do you wear shoes comfortably?

Why shouldn't we


make everything more exciting?

It's easy

to change the way you look at yourself.
Easy to shatter your self-esteem.
Easy to let others get to you and bring to down.

It's easy to give up, to give in-
It's easy to let the media sink in.
It's too easy to feel you're just one among many
It's too easy to wish you had plenty.

It's hard to get real-
to know how you feel.
It's hard to try-
stop accepting and question why.

It's hard to tell
about the time you fell.
It's hard to put it on the table-
you fear you'll fall, unstable.

It's right to accept yourself.
It's right to strive for your best as well!
It's right to put away expectations
It's right to be emancipated.

Live it. Love it.
You're not alone.

Romans 12:2 (New International Version)

2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

We don't always know



which way is up.

How do we correct the next generation?









...show them life isn't always easy.

Somehow


they missed the irony.

I guess


even trees must get cold sometimes.

Watermelon

never looked so sexy.

Why not



find something to smile at?

Selfless.




People do what they can with what they have. Even if they don't have it.
Let's give it. Beat them to the punch.

Yeah.


Just pretend they aren't there.
It's not like they're human or anything.

What do you see?


1. She gives up; life's not worth it.
2. She's tired.
3. She loves the world so much she can't help but express it.

Shine.


Shine your light and let the whole world see.

Wow.

That's intense.

Sometimes


you have to soak it all in. Don't analyze it.
