The theme this month for The Creativity Project is {Body Parts & Age}.

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

~Kevyn Aucoin

 

Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It’s the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, ‘This is me, and I’m interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.’

Ashton Kutcher

 

A lot of people resist transition and therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are. Embrace the change, no matter what it is; once you do, you can learn about the new world you’re in and take advantage of it.

Nikki Giovanni

 

Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self-actualization.
Bo BennettI think this theme came at a perfect time in my life.

    there is such softness in human touch…such beauty in nature…that when the two of them meet it’s almost impossible to ignore the feeling it creates in ones spirit…your images captures this essence brilliantly.

    the serenity of the ghost-like portrait…the calm of the beauty shots…i am love with the feelings this post has given to me, dear sharon xoReplyCancel

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

My most favorite season.

Always.

I’ve always said if I ever moved out of New Jersey I would still want to live in a place where you experience all 4 seasons.

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
― Lauren DeStefano
