In this very intriguing “study,” a few women were asked what they thought they looked like. The rest is just amazing:

… I stepped in, to wonderland.
Appealing to the Dreamer that lives within us, this show has every fantasy and fable element and character incorporated into it (one of the qualities I found intriguing – to see how they could possibly interlace all of those stories, set in different times and places), from Snow White to Frankenstein to Alice in Wonderland.

I just read an article by Deepak Chopra about inspiring your brain. It’s nothing we aren’t already aware of, so may it serve as a reminder to keep our minds out of the gutter and to offer it much-needed inspiration and “health:”
“Take care of stress. Avoid dulling routine. Do something creative every day. Read poetry, spiritual material or anything else that makes you feel uplifted. Take time to be in nature. Bond with another person who is heartwarming. Pay attention to being happy. Make sure you take time every day by yourself to relax, meditate and self-reflect. Deal with negative emotions like anger and anxiety. Focus on activity that makes you feel fulfilled. Give of yourself. Follow a personal vision. Attach yourself to a cause that is bigger than you are. Take the risk to love and be loved.”

Recently (and finally), I watched the award-winning documentary March of the Penguins.
It blew my mind.
Since I was young and in grade school, I have had this great appreciation for these mini tux’d up waddlers.. It may have started in 3rd grade when we read this book Mr. Popper’s Penguins and afterwards had a short assignment to write a letter to Mr. Popper(for one reason or another). To our surprise, we received responses! Mine included kind words and most exciting, a promise of a pet penguin! Oh, I was super excited as you can imagine –a penguin! Of course, had I not been a believer as I was at that impressionable age, I would have realized that the letters of response were most likely written by students in a higher grade than ours, also as an assignment. Well, I waited eagerly, for a penguin that would never come. As I “grew up” however, I realized the reality behind it all (after all, a pet penguin, in FL?… lol), but my fascination for these creatures did not dwindle.
After watching this documentary, my fascination is once again renewed. Not only is it remarkable that these animals can withstand the outrageously frigid temperatures of the Antarctic, but their entire existence goes toward finding true love (this movie covers only 1 year in their life). The majority of their lives involve traveling hundreds of miles (20 days straight!) through an environment where no other sustainable life exists, finding a mate, and taking care of one another together, separately. Finding one another through a sea of thousands of seemingly identical faces, they use sound to locate their spouse (and later their chick). That’s just the beginning though, and I could carry on but won’t. What I admire most? Their tenacity, dedication, and devotion to their other half through this entire process -it is something truly spectacular: the love of a penguin : )

We are driven by self-interest, it’s necessary to survive. But we need wise self-interest that is generous and co-operative, taking others’ interests into account. Co-operation comes from friendship, friendship comes from trust, and trust comes from kind-heartedness. Once you have a genuine sense of concern for others, there’s no room for cheating, bullying or exploitation.

So my good friend Melanie does this really awesome thing with her art. She first began doodling around with some images and has most recently mushroomed into her very own card business on Etsy.com. Now alongside her job, she is doing something she really enjoys : ) Very excited for her, and it couldn’t have happened to a better person! I got one of her very first originals in the mail for my birthday, and loved it.. then was randomly surprised with another when she created the official ones! I would love to share her talent with everyone:We have such fun when we hang out, as evidenced by the image of us in this post (this was us celebrating her birthday, 8o’s style!), and I’m very fortunate to be able to call her a good friend. If you need a card, I encourage you to visit her store on etsy.com – she has great cards for any occasion, you can also contact her if you may have a special request, they ship quickly and are packaged quite handsomely. Thank you for your support, and feel free to share with friends! : )

So often it is easy to see things from one perspective: our own.
From a different angle, we unveil a whole new aspect; Bo has no idea he has complete heterochromia, he can only see the world in the way he was given: through his own eyes. As a more aware observer, the world should be viewed in more than one aspect than simply our own, and we should always embrace (even if we do not necessarily accept) a different perspective.
PS: my computer is down for the count; as I look into a new one, I will post more once I have it.. Hopefully by week’s end I will be back up and running (can’t wait!) Thanks for your patience, sorry for the absence : )
