It's Friday...already. Oh my.... I sure wish you could stop by and sit on the front porch... We could sip tea or diet coke...you could tell me your story.... I could tell you my 'story' of the past few weeks...and you could share some wise words.... and it would feel so much better.
But I am trusting all is as it should be...this too shall pass...... and everything will be okay.
Let's dive into another 5 Fact Friday... A California Dreaming eDition.... I'm linking up over at Reflection of You.... Every Friday in August ROY is hosting a little 5 Fact link up. Please join us!! The more the merrier!
And before I dive in.... Just a Reminder, Behind the Scenes starts on Tuesday! Are you in? Click HERE for more info.
Fact #1: I often sit in the sun....close my eyes and go back to October 2011... Camp Shutter Sisters. California Dreamin'.... So good! Life changing..... truly.... life changing...
Fact #2: California feels like home to me. I can't really explain it...it just does. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.... In fact, one dear reader, Earl.... understands exactly how i feel about it...it was his home for many years..... Today I'm waving to Earl... He's a regular TT'er. Earl's been a little under the weather. I hope you are doing okay Earl!! I'm sending you healing thoughts and prayers. This Big Sur photos for you, Earl!
Fact #3: At Camp we had this awesome lab space.... It was so much fun... People gathered, visited, edited their images... printed tons of photos... the energy was magical. So good! I can't wait to do it all over again this October in Palm Springs.
Fact #4: Xanthe and I will be landing in Los Angeles a few days before Oasis starts.... We'd love to plan a little gathering....(possibly on October 18th or 19th) If this interests you, please feel free to fill out this form and we will update you with any news....
Fact #5: I never thought I needed real-life creative connections.... I thought my online creative friends were more than enough. I called myself a loner.... quite happy in my own company.....Camp made me realize how awesome it can be to spend time with people who really get 'it'. It's incredibly powerful....Life changing.... As much as I still LOVE my alone time... I now crave need time with other creatives... It's funny how thingschange when we are open to the possibilities.
How 'bout you? Do you have real-life creative connections? People who get it, get you? If not do you ever wish you did? Perhaps you're just like I was... quite happy on your own? I'd love to hear how you feel about this..... Do tell....
