Do. or do not. There is no try ~ Yoda

I have started a Personal Manifesto.  I should say I have started writing my Personal Manifesto.  How freeing it is.  I have topics – I’m sure they are simple topics.  However, I am making it so that I could add as I learn and live.

Writing this has been so freeing.
  It’s something that I wanted to do before.  I never really knew what a manifesto is.  One day the thought came to me.  I had to look it up because I had never heard of it other than it coming to me in my head.  There is a lot of information and suggestions on the web.  I chose to print that information out, but I haven’t read it yet.  I wanted to create it on my own with my own ideas and philosophies.  Well the ball is definitely rolling. It’s taking me a minute to finish it, but I don’t really think it ever gets finished.  Always polishing and fine tuning.  It does set me in a motion on a path.  Path to where – I don’t know.  I just like expressing and living to certain levels.  Although, I’m not stuck at just what I say I live with the guidelines know that things will change.  Rolling with the flow of life.

I was stimulated to really get it down on paper by meeting a wonderful person, a man that is so awesome!
  I was on one of my trips.  He stood out from all the rest of the people I met.  He and I connected immediately.  His words, thoughts, views and freedom of life really turned me on.  He’s kind and honest.  Too bad he’s emotionally unavailable at this time.  However, who really is emotionally available!!!  I have found a friend for life.  We know each others thoughts and actions before we do it and sometimes predict it.  The people around us thought hmmm what’s up with these two?  Actually nothing just a connection of the spirits and energy.  Nothing like having a Super Hero in your life.

He noticed my fears.
  Uuugh.  He didn’t want to rescue me – boy am I glad.  He supported me and encouraged me to let them go.  He didn’t make it a project.  I love that.  With his hands off approach I’m ready to take on the world (or so I think).  When I left he gave me a rose quartz – to further nurture my self love.  He also gave me a crystal, a Lemurian Seed Crystal.  The purpose of this crystal is to assist in remembering who we really are. I guess I got to stop sabotaging myself and let me out.  God help us all everyone!

One last thing.
  In the light of the quote by Yoda.  I am getting into photography.  Something that I have taken on as a hobby.  I really have taken it on as a hobby, however, I have no idea what to do with my expensive tool for my hobby.  I found a free on line photography class.  I love it.  I’m learning about exposure, fstopping and such.  It has been pretty cool.  I need to do a hell of a lot more work – I emphasize hobby again. 

In my attempts of capturing what I am trying to learn.
  I am learning how to take pictures with motion.  I know it’s not much but I will post a picture I took in practice. Yeah, this is it “water flowing from faucet.” I’m pretty proud of it.  However, I can do much better.  If you saw the other 35 pictures I took of the same thing, this was the best.  Bear with the amateur.
I think this is the right exposure
The exposure is to dark but I still like the picture
I’m done.

May the force be with you!
