The great escape

Zibska004

Lately I find the time involved from taking the picture to processing it to the completion of getting it posted like a little escape for me. I get lost in my own little world when I’m in the throes of it.

While I love music and revel in the sounds and the soothing it can sometimes provide to my restless wandering mind and spirit I find myself quite often with the volume on mute.  There is something peaceful and tranquil being in complete silence.  Maybe I hear my thoughts more clearly without the constant chatter in the background.  It’s a little like meditation perhaps.

In any case I enjoy these moments of relaxation.

Today I am showing some awesome pieces from Zibska.  Her work is awesome and you should go check her store out if you’re not familiar with it. I love that she allows you to be as creative as your imagination allows.  I’m wearing the Sunniva headpiece and collar that is currently available at Tres Chic until June 10th.  You can grab this in a full color change set that has 20 colors for the main and accent pieces or in the five single colors sets available at the event.

Zibska is also participating in the SCALA & Windlight Magazine Achromatic avant garde event in celebration of Windlight Magazine’s 1 year anniversary with three new releases.  I’m wearing the bodysuit from the Gong outfit and then using pieces that goes with the Lyrica outfit as part of the scene.  The event will start on June 4th and run through June 18th.

Let me fall

I’m a big fan of Cirque du Soleil and have had an opportunity to see many of its shows here in America.  It’s just fascinating to watch the dynamic acrobatics that are a part of each show.  Everything… the lighting, costumes and the music just has a creative energy that I absolutely love.

That is where my inspiration came from when I was going through some of the items from Zibska and the aerial silks by Distorted Dreams.

Good things always take time to blossom

“But he who dares not grasp the thorn, should never crave the rose.”

FF 0062

The Rose

Have you ever loved a rose, and watched her slowly bloom;
and as her petals would unfold, you grew drunk on her perfume.

Have you ever seen her dance, her leaves all wet with dew;
and quivered with a new romance–the wind, he loved her too.

Have you ever longed for her, on nights that go on and on;
for now, her face is all a blur, like a memory kept too long.

Have you ever loved a rose, and bled against her thorns;
and swear each night to let her go, then love her more by dawn.

Heavy On My Heart

Angel 0173

I often take pictures for my own amusement and this is one I took a few days ago from some of the items from the epiphany event. Sometimes pictures are an expression of what I may be feeling or thinking or often just an inspiration that arises from whatever I have put together.  This was just an inspiration as I wanted something different than other pictures I’ve taken using wings. Though it’s eerie how it serves a purpose today to express my emotions in this case when my heart feels heavy over someone that I care about.

It’s a blessing and a curse to be quite sensitive sometimes, especially when I am extremely connected with someone as it means that I have a keen awareness to their moods without even having to be told.

I just feel it.

This was my original take and the rest was done using pic-monkey.

I love this song and it touches a little of what I am feeling.

In remembrance

Zibska 001

I took this picture days ago and not knowing from day to day how I am going to feel I wasn’t sure if I would get around to posting it.  One moment I feel better and the next I’m shivering and having fever and a pounding headache the next.

In any case, what I feel is nothing compared to those who are affected by the tragedy in Belgium and my heart goes out in thoughts and prayers.
