Smash Palace – New Zealand What is this girl going to do when she’s driving 100 km down a country road at 8:30am and sees a sign pointing turn right now for ‘Vintage Car Museum’?

Morning in Fantasyland Today I was a canvas being painted over and over again. The motions were smooth and precise, a wonderful practiced rhythm with just the right amount of pressure.  The paints were silky at times, cool then warm, slightly scratchy then sticky. The smells were incredible; pleasantly floral, light and heavenly. I even once licked a slightly sweet honey from my lips. I encouraged myself to be present and in the moment. To allow complete relaxation while not falling…

The Dawning of Friendship – iPhone Photography Article

The Dawning of Friendship Good Morning Bay of IslandsWoke this morning much too early, 4:15am. The newly purchased air mattress lost enough air that my hip was getting sore.
