You can’t appreciate your own world without the company of people you love.

A tribute to the humans I love, have loved, will love. The number is small but meaningful. 

Existing in a world of social media, nonstop news coverage and a near dependence on smart phones blinds me often from what is most valuable. How grateful I am to take a step away from all of that and consider what fuels the good days. I think I may have the answer–or something close at least.

We Watched Beauty and the Beast the Night Before I Wrote This

Disney archetypes.

The day before we left for our grand adventure into the untamed wilderness of Western Colorado, we spent the evening with my cousin and her young daughter. This new relative of mine was a cute and babbling mini human with a language only really understood by her mother and us after a few enthusiastic repetitions of the phrase. 

Her blue eyes reflected an intelligence that lied just beyond her grasp. The freedom to truly express that intelligence was still getting hooked up in her mind.

One thing she knew how to communicate was the need for a nightly edition of her family’s movie night. Always a Disney film, the four of us settled in to the couch to watch this evening’s chosen flick: Beauty and The Beast.

A call to the wild.

I reached it. The point of no return. My dependency on the goings-on behind my phone screen reached levels I’m embarrassed to admit to. Hours of precious time were instead wasted for the short-term pleasures that existed online.

This day was long awaited; the one that would take me away from this dual-life of mine. I would instead force myself to live off the grid and devote the time spent there to expanding my craft and my creativity. I feel the long bouts of meditative driving, sweeping views of majestic earth and the quiet solitude with every evening will do me good.

For Charlotte.

We sometimes think life comes easy. We construct a fabulous vision in our minds for what our future will look like. The details, from the grandest to the most minute, can sweep us away into a fantasy and the time spent pouring ourselves into that will inevitably convince us of its authenticity.

Life doesn’t work like that, though, does it.

I don’t think I am yet at the point where I create content that appeals to the masses but in this moment I don’t really care all that much.

Writing is still something I do for fun and the mentality shift from fun to hustle is a slow but steady transition. Anyways, I asked for recommendations for what I should write on in future posts on this blog and was given many to choose from. I thank the participants for easing this process, truly.

This post is derived from my own appreciation of the female form. As a woman myself, I know it well enough from my vantage point. Even so, the woman is a mystery to me and the privilege I have to dive deep into the psyches of so many brings forth a rather expansive and colorful perspective on the femme persona. 

I once wrote online for fun. The community I wrote with still consists largely of people I consider friends. Consider these next few paragraphs an homage to those times when we were writing sultry fiction back and forth to one another. For any other wandering eye, enjoy. What follows is a blend of both my appreciations into one thing.
