B’day

8 01 2012

I woke up this morning to the news of Beyonces B’Day , in this case of course I mean birth day. Her daughter Blue Ivy Carter has arrived! I would like to congratulate both her and Jay-Z. Beyonce is one of my favorite artists and this news makes me smile, it also got me thinking about birth.. and rebirth. So I went off in search of it in the only place I was sure it would be, in nature. I went to my local park, armed with my camera to take some pics and get some air. On the way I found a small fruit tree and some wild mushrooms growing in the middle of the street. The fact that everything else around looked so dreary and they were still growing through was very beautiful. Walking around the park I  found so many things starting to grow, new life everywhere, and also things dying off or hibernating. Its hard to believe sometimes that I miss the beauty just behind my house because I am too busy noticing what is ugly about it which is why Ive included my last photo, it shows a rather ordinary scene yet for some reason I couldn’t stop looking at the picture. I thought I would share some of my pictures with you all : )

The beginning…

7 01 2012

So I feel that since this is in fact my first post I should probably explain my intentions… although justify them I will not. It has become clear to me that what is of the highest importance in life is simply to enjoy the moment. Living in London and managing the daily stresses of life sometimes means that I get tunnel vision and do not see that really there is an opportunity for happiness at every turn. So while strolling around Islington with a friend we came up on a shop called  Lie down i think i love you  and so the concept for this blog was born. The idea of surrendering felt like such a relief to me. I decided to seize and document the beautiful and inspiring things in my life and let them in. So I will simply be sharing day by day, week by week, month by month, the things that enrich my life. Hopefully they will be things that can be shared and enjoyed by you, the readers and you can, metaphorically speaking lie down and let me love you ….

Where it all began....
