My friend passed away.
He was a beautiful man who encouraged others in thier purpose.
He had such an incredible breadth of interests, I loved it when he popped round the house and we sat chatting politics.
I loved collaborating with him on projects, and I loved his laugh.
He was a together man, not because he always had it together, but because he drew people together to enjoy community and fun.
He was always so understanding and gave me space to be flexible when I needed it.
He passed away on a run from a heartattack far to early. Such a shock, such a loss.
But this has reminded me how very important it is to live life now.
So... Here I am in Edinburgh to watch people perform poetry because if I don't do it now I could easily miss the opportunity. Also if I don't allow myself to live with the fullness of life, which is so easy to do for a mirrad of reasons, then I will miss out on contentment and the joy that my friend was such a wonderful example.
Like him, I want to always keep challenging myself, pushing myself because I want to feel alive! #memory#inlovingmemory#inspiration#inspirationalquotes#quote#liveon#livenow#livewithjoy#contented#challenge#inspirationalpeople#justdoit#dowhatyoulove#dontholdback#lovedeeply#livefree

Фотосесія для більшості людей це подія на яку треба наважитися, зібратися і дотриматися ще купи умов, дуже часто надуманих.. 😅🤪🤦🏻♀️ Ось схудну, ось відрощу волосся, ось куплю машину, ось куплю квартиру, ось дитина підросте і т.д. Нам завжди здається що ми не достатньо легкі на підйом, не достатньо привабливi, не достатньо забезпеченi.. І ось колись пiзнiше прийде той самий ідеальний час для зйомки.. Ми так рідко буваємо задоволені собою тут і зараз.. Звичайно ж немає межі досконалості.. Aле саме фотографії здатні нам нагадати, якими ми були в той чи інший момент свого життя.. I можливо не такими досконалими, як хотілося б, але точно такими, якими вже не будемо ніколи.. Не чекайте приводу і кращого часу.. Не відмовляйте собі в фото.. Фотографуйтесь різними! І можливо дещо не досконалими, але справжнiми!!! ❤️❤️❤️
WOW, Google just sent me this email! This was not a goal of mine. I enjoy taking pictures and posting them to Google maps. I started posting photos and doing reviews on Google Maps to help others look for businesses the way I look for businesses online. I never thought this would happen. 😀
🚨PLEASE HELP! 🚨
This painting is a recreation of a photo that was all over the news in mid-July and is an issue I think seriously needs to be addressed. The painting depicts a Mother Killer whale who, for several days, carried around the corpse of her dead baby as a sign of her grief and mourning. The Orca/Killer Whale species living in the Pacific Ocean are seriously at risk, not only are they already endangered, but they’re fertility levels are falling every year as their infant mortality is on the rise. There are three main reasons for this; 1. The availability of their life-sustaining food, Pacific Salmon, is overfished and becoming endangered, which clearly leads to deaths in healthy adults and also prevents the healthy growth of infants who share their mother’s nutrient via milk. 2. Vessels/crafts of business out sightseeing, especially in the attempt to see Orca’s cause stress, accidents, and separation of pods and lastly but not less importantly 3. Their home, our oceans, are filled with high levels of toxins (e.g. PCB, PBDE, and DDT) which are all stored in the whale’s body not to mention the garbage and fossil fuels, from oil spills that they ingest daily. .
Orcas are one of the numerous intelligent animals’ species who share this planet with us. We must take care of each other and protect and preserve this planet if we want to survive and live happily. .
