Happy Spring! I know, it snowed here yesterday, but whatever. The sun is out, and the pollen is trying to kill my face. Sounds like Spring to me! Sunday I got to visit one of my favorite places, Phipps Conservatory, and play with my camera a bit. It was 82 degrees that day... (WTF April?!) I'm still playing with the photos, but here's my favorite so far.

I really wish all of nature didn't try to explode my head, I'd really like to be one of those people who keeps a beautiful garden with all kinds of flowers... maybe colorscape the whole yard... but nope. I should pretty much view spring from inside a bubble, camera lens pointing out, Benadryl on standby.

This morning I doubled yoga classes and completed my 30 day Challenge... all 30 classes, done!
I work well with deadlines. Give me one, and that's exactly when I'll finish, no sooner, but I'll get there.
I think this has been an incredibly valuable month for me. I'm still processing a lot of things, and I'm struggling with even more, but I've learned about myself and what I'm capable of, and that's something I need to hold on to. Because I can actually accomplish things, if I put all my energies and focus into them, and I can feel good about meeting goals, even smallish personal ones.

That's exactly what my head has felt like it's going to do since Monday. I'm pretty sure it's going to drive me over the damn edge.

But I WILL finish Challenge. Two classes in the morning... bring it.

Play Time

Basically all I want to do lately (besides all the damn yoga) is play with my phone. Specifically the camera and editing functions. Which is making me want to go out and play with my big camera, which is making me want to buy new lenses so I can make play time even better. I am addicted to beautiful pictures.

I didn't make these original images, but I took the pictures and played with the editing.

I'm getting my spring creative itch. Hopefully this year it leads to something productive!

Why Am I So Cold?

This is both a literal and metaphorical question.

Also, today was one of my least favorite days, but Team Neurosis passed our audit with a 92. Go Crazies!

And now I'm going to bed, since I need to triple yoga again tomorrow to catch back up. This week's been a bitch.

Tuesday Thoughts

The loss of anonymity is a terrible thing.

The loss of innocence can happen at any age.

Understanding your personality type can change your life.

Yes, you are crazy. But you're behaving in exactly the crazy way people would expect if they understood your personality.

You are not special.

You are better than you think.

Sometimes being selfish is the only thing that will keep you from losing yourself.
