Took a break from posting yesterday in honor of a wonderful woman. This woman is the inspiration behind why I do this blog. To carry her message…be kind, be wonderful, be generous. It is indeed what Jodi has always done.
I know there are many people like her in the world. And I feel quite honored and lucky to have known such a wonderous human being. Yesterday was her birthday.
I often think back to wishing I could have been there more for her or just simply spent more time. Time. It’s something so vast…yet so precious. In all that we try to strive through to get through life, it really is important to take time. Time to just close your eyes under the sun, time to look at the big blue ocean, time to listen to your kids stories, time to hold hands with the one you love, time to remember those that have taken a journey before you, and that you hope to one day meet up again with them….in heaven, in paradise…in that place where you will rekindle with those you once thought lost. They are not lost, as long as they are remembered.
I remember you Jodi. As do many others. The pain of losing you will hopefully be overtaken by all the memories we have shared with you.
Dear Jodi……there are many of us that look forward to meeting you again when our time travels down that journey…but until then I know you are with me…you are with your family…you are with your friends…forever and always. Love you!
Finding the time to write and create can be hard. But what I have learned it to simply go with the ebb and flow of it all. Try to when I can, and move on if I can’t. Keep a notebook handy to write down ideas and really take a good clear look at them to generate some inspiration. Inspiration…….for inspiration I often look to nature…sometimes in the form of a walk or breathing in some fresh air. How do find time and inspiration for your creative endeavors?
I like to consider myself a bit of both, but more on the right… or…alot more on the right! It’s a wonderful depiction really…simple and vivid. I more or less depends on the situation in determining which side of the brain I will use.
I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.
I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I want to be.
What side are you on? Are you a little of each? Do tell!
So lately I’ve been quite the Anglophile, watching Downton Abby and Sherlock…love Masterpiece Theater, so I can’t help but think that I wrote this pretending to have an English accent. Feel free to use the accent of your choice when reading things…it’s rather fun!
Such a tiny sweet little baby. Even now, you have a sensitive caring way about you. Sometimes things tend to set you off emotionally to where you take it to heart. That is who you are Tamra. But you are also coming into your own, learning from the things you see and do; adding strength to your mind and taking chances more often than not. Your imagination flows so keep that going for as long as you can! I miss these quiet simple moments.
You will be missed but always cherished for your wonderful spirit, the way you spread your happiness and for your endless love of your family.
Masi, please look over your family from above and give them peace. Love you
Even if just to pose in Savasana…
