Capturing my days through the lens

Photography will be my focus.  Each day I will take a few photos that capture my day.  New York City has many photo worthy moments everywhere and these three photos from my morning in the urban jungle are prime examples.

Blogging is like...

This blog is like my life, a huge potpourris mixture of different things.   The mix is so very different that there is no distinct idea or smell or concentration of anything.  I need to find a focus.  I need to find a focus in my life and for this blog.  So, today is my day to think about a focus for this blog. 

11 ideas I have are:
  1. Photography
  2. Weight management
  3. The Bronx
  4. New York City
  5. Shopping
  6. Pets; no dogs
  7. Movies
  8. Poetry
  9. Books
  10. My bucket list
  11. My journey to California
I'll decide my focus for this blog tomorrow.  I like to give myself deadlines and goals, so tomorrow will me my topic deciding day.

What makes me smile and warms my heart?

What makes me smile and warms my heart?
  • Talking to a friend that truly cares about you for countless hours.
  • Having my dog push his head against my arm because he wants my love.
  • Smelling the mix of foods from the potpourri of people living in my neighborhood.
  • Feeling the sun on my skin and the breeze on my face.
  • Dreaming big and moving to accomplish those dreams.
  • The sounds and smell of the rain.
  • Success in every size.
  • A warm hug.
  • A soft kiss.
  • Strong eyes.
  • A clever book.
  • Bright colors on a white canvas.
  • A beautiful picture.
  • The sounds of the ocean.

I like to read my horoscope each day to give my life some perspective which helps me motivate and give myself direction.  The last line of my horoscope today read, "Success is all about understanding exactly how much you've actually accomplished."  I was amazed at how intuitive the writer of this horoscope was.  I read the line about three times, each time thinking about my life's successes thus far and I understood fully the direction I need to take in my life.  Our lives are made up of our experiences and I need to experience everything I can dream up.
