And the Ship has Sailed…

First, I have to start by saying that I am super happy that my little adventure has officially begun. It’s been quite fun.

I came home Friday evening after work and did my very own photo shoot. It all started because I remembered that back in highschool I had this journal that I took every where with me. I had collaged it inside and out, glued random objects in it, and wrote with all inhibitions to the side. I had glued a picture of this African American chick who had been rotoscoped on the cover. I loved the idea of being that girl. She wore a smile on her face, her hair was a fro, and she just seemed to be happy and independent. As I graced the pages of my old journal, I realized the determination I had once had to be on my own.

Looking back now, all I can do is smile. And say, Wow. I have become the person that I had dreamt of being. Granted a few mishaps along the way and I don’t live in some huge city but the old me would be proud. So, I took it upon myself to make my first official self portrait.

Then… Yesterday morning I awoke with a dream in mind. I had been running around my old back yard and felt something stuck to the bottom of my foot. I sat down in the green plush grass and took off my shoe and sock. For some reason, a yellow daisy was growing from the bottom of my foot. Confused and startled, I quickly ripped it from the sole of my foot, only to say that we should have taken a picture of it first. So, here’s to my first water coloring. Most definitely not Van Gogh or anything.

The process its self was liberating. It was not just the meaning behind it, but the ability to bring it to fruition. It could be ten times better, different, or whatever. But I did it. I think it turned out quite well.

(Dreaming about a foot indicates your point of view, or the progress you are making as you pursue life’s journey. A dream of a yellow flower, daisy, is an expression of pleasant thoughts and emotions. It is a sign that the highest form of happiness will come your way.)

I hope you all dream of feet&flowers…
