Bucket List #6

With all this crazy talk of the rapture today ~ it really just leads me to think of things I want to make an effort to do and see in this lifetime {however long it lasts}, and a visit to India is one of those things. I want to ride a painted elephant, visit the Taj Mahal and get exotic henna tattoos! Looks like fun huh!

take me with you when you go . . .

Dreaming of colorful adventures on this sleepy gray Saturday morning . . .

Living in color

Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions. ~ Pablo Picasso
With summer around the corner, I find myself craving color. Summer is the happiest time of year for me. I love the sunshine and warm days, and my emotional state becomes lighter and more carefree. I want to surround myself in bright bold colors and dream of far away exotic lands I might travel to!

emotional jellyfish

When someone upsets you, you can chose to go on the defense and construct a wall to block out the emotional situation or, you can choose to be like a jellyfish ~ free-floating. You allow the emotional situation to surround you. You simply accept what the other person says, all the while taking in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water or the spirit that the words are said in.

You aren’t mortally wounded by what the other person says or does, it passes right through you. However you are not in denial either, you have clarity, presence of mind and focus. This is what it means to be an emotional jellyfish.

bugle beads

I picked up this silence & noise skirt at Urban Outfitters a couple years ago, and fell in love the bugle beaded scalloped fringe, but never really had the right top to wear with it . . . until I came across this beaded vintage blouse - no tags to identify where it came from, but now I have a top ~ fitting ~ of this super cool skirt, no?!
