Oh Hi there, I didn’t forget about you, beloved blog of mine. Ive just being hiding in a dark hole where no one can find me. I became a mole, and went underground for the remainder of winter. But I’ve come out of hiding…. sort of.
I guess I’ve been on hiatus. Haven’t really been out shooting like I should be. Things have changed around my house, BIG time.
Like this lovely edition.
This would be Cricket. My Eclectus.
I met him in a dream before I knew he existed. I’m not joking.
I’m not saying I’m psychic or anything, but sometimes things just …happen.
He has helped me heal this gaping hole in my heart.
He has been a great source of comfort for me, and I am thankful. Pets can do wonderful things for a broken heart. And hes done the trick. He adores being sprayed with a water bottle, and then blowdryed after. He stretches his wings out as the warm air blows over them, and he steals things out of my plate. He enjoys perching somewhere in my bathroom while I do whatever it is I’m doing in there. Parrots are a joy to have, and my family is quite blessed with this 9 month old bugger.
Now in the ways of shooting, Ive been staring at my Canon for what seems like two months. It’s been staring back, I promise. Telling me to take it and go outside, screaming “Jamie! Quit watching Desparate Housewives, put down that Kit Kat, and take me outside!”
My mother would be the first to tell you that I don’t listen worth a damn. But when your down in the dumps, well, your just down. And when you ain’t got no one to help you get out of the dirt, well, it takes a while to dust it off. I’ma dustin though! It takes time, one step at a time. Sometimes we need to learn to depend on ourselves, can’t always expect that someone will be there to help you get your footing. Trial and error. And have a little dash of faith, can’t go wrong. And this is something that at being 25 year old, married, and a mother of 3, I’m just learning!
That rap song… “go head, and dust ya shoulders off.”
This I took yesterday. I looked outside to find some flowers growing in my broken brick flowerbed. Sometimes in my own sadness, I forget to look around and see the beauty around me. This is something that I should always remember. I guess sadness has a way of making you blind to the positive.
I mean look at that flower. It’s drinkin up some sun. No worries there.
Its so simple. Why are things always so complicated? Maby things are just black and white, but we as complex and emotional human beings, have to complicate things. And I do enjoy flowers. Even if they don’t have a smell to them.
I also have some really awesome news!… and I really can’t say anything about it yet. Calm down calm down, don’t worry too much about it yet! It will come when it needs to.
Any way, I will be out shooting more! I have something to do tomorrow as a matter of fact! So there! See you round!
