Because there’s no real easy way to do this publicly: I love Nas. Always have, always will. Whenever I am having a bad day, I listen to some Nas. His music always seems to lift my spirits. There’s no real rhyme or reason to it. I grew up in Brooklyn listening to him. He might even be my first real crush. So, today, Nas is my inspiration. I can sit here and quote a million of his lyrics and one will be better than the next, so you should just listen to some of his stuff, sit back and relax. Nas can do that for you. He makes me feel like I can accomplish anything.
And let’s see if he gives me a tinsy little interview about what inspires him…..
I believe that one should look at beautiful things, because the things we surround ourselves with become we are and we perceive ourselves to be. God has created this earth for us to enjoy and bask it’s beauty. I am a New Yorker and I for one, have never seen a beach like this up close and personal. That is not to say that I do not love my New York beaches. It is where I go to be calm and at peace. My favorite places in the world really. Yet, there is something about this photo, when I found it that just excited me from it’s sheer beauty and the mood it creates. Can’t you just see yourself there? Because I can. My Mother and I love to go to the beach, and one of my dreams is to take her to a beach like this. Have you ever seen a beach like this? Would you like to go?
Sometimes things seem hopeless. There seems to be no way to make it in the world in this day and age. The celebrity culture turns people over at an alarming rate. How can we make it in a world that is now spinning faster than ever and with an attention span shorter than ever? I am trying to figure this out as I go too. I am hoping to break the vicious cycle. Remember to stay at your dreams and believe in yourself. The universe will conspire to help you. The possibility of what you want in life will help you get through the days until you actually achieve it.
How do we deal with love? What do you do if your partner seems to be doing inconsiderate things to you all the time but says that you are just misunderstanding of the situation at hand? Do you forgive again and again and hope for better or do you end the relationship that means so much to you? I don’t know the answer to these questions. I was wondering what everyone’s thoughts on the subject are. Please share! We need one another’s help! Have you ever been in love and went through bad times with someone that only led to good?
I know that I may be getting a little bit ahead of myself here, but we’ve already officially been in winter for over a month now. It’s about 55 degrees today! And it feels oddly like a Spring Day. I even hear some birds singing as I write this! I just can’t wait. Can you? What’s your favorite Spring Thing?
I have always loved reading about Native Americans. Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by them and wanted to grow up to be a Native American. Children!
I always have this quote in my mind, from Crowfoot, “What is life, is it the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breathe of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset”.
Whenever I am at odds with myself, with life, I think about this often. I want to try and enjoy my life. I want people in my life that care about me. That want to be next to me all the time, before it is too late. What are the things you want in life? Are you able to stay happy while you are trying to obtain them? What are your secrets?
It was one of those days. Rainy, dreary, the works. But I could not help but think that this too serves it’s purpose. That the earth needs the rain, that we need cloudy days in order to really appreciate the sun filled ones. It was hard for me to concentrate today, yet I made it through the day. I remember being a small girl, loving to read on rainy days. I hope you too can find meaning and powerful, motivating memories in gloomy days. Because this too shall pass.

A moon that is almost full, cast her satiny glow on all that lies in the darkness below
Wood smoke is wafting through the air caressing all the senses, like pleasant memories
We are reminded of all the beauties that surround us, and all that we have to be thankful for
In awe and admiration we with grateful hearts, give thanks for all that we have been given
I took this photo in the summer of 2010 on a Brooklyn beach (AKA The Borough By The Sea). It is one of my favorite photos ever! My Mom and I spent the entire day on the beach, it was hot and amazing. We took the photo past 7, I believe, the tide had receded considerably, which made it seem that you could just walk into and keep walking forever into the ocean; and the evening had begun to spread out against the sky. The atmosphere was very relaxed and peaceful. I cherish this photo because it puts me right back in that place, in that mood and feeling. I can hear the ocean, the children playing, smell the saltwater and seaweed. Do you enjoy the beach as much as I do? Which beaches are your favorite? Send me your beach photos and I will post them as inspirations (with your credit, of course)!
