Stuff that catches my fancy and random, sorted thoughts from the inner scrambles of my mind.
What you may expect to find here are what I consider good taste and some of the best in photography, philosophy, humor, art, architecture, food, music, poetry, literature and dance. I hope you like some of the things I enjoy.
I like anything to do with good design such as interior design, architecture, photography, and art. I enjoy philosophy and psychology. I love to figure out what makes individuals tick. Music of most all types but particularly classical, world, pop, acoustic guitar is a big part of my life and add some dance to the music and my day is great! I like to write and occasionally I will write poetry and I really love to read it out loud and I even record it sometimes.
I'm a Myers-Briggs type ENFJ which means I love people and have a great interest in them.
I guess you could say I'm a humanities kind of person. :)

Hot Fashion Trend in 2012 - Color Blocking. It’s everywhere from clothing, shoes, fingernails, to interior designs.
Color blocking is fun and sure way to refresh your home and bring more energy and color to it. So how does it work? Pretty much the same as with your wardrobe. You study the color wheel and pick the colors that go well together. They contrast in a nice jazzy way with each other without going gray or looking too garish.
CAUTION: Just remember though, this is a fad or trend (here today and gone tomorrow). Make sure this is something you can live with for a while if your budget is tight and you can’t change it if you get tired of it or overwhelmed. Make sure the colors you chose are colors you are comfortable with. A pretty good test is to check out the colors of clothing you wear all the time and love. You can also use it on items easily and cheaply changed, such as painted walls.
The colors you choose for painting your walls using color blocking technique should be bold, bright and pleasant to the eye. The combination should also be easy on the eye but attract attention. Bright doesn’t have to be eye-watering but if color blocking with many different colors is too much for your eyes to handle you can always throw in neutrals. In fact that what you should do anyway, not to go insane from the range of different bold colors in your house.

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity, and change,” researcher-storyteller Brené Brown famously said. In her absolutely fantastic TED 2012 talk, a complement to her equally eloquent 2010 talk on vulnerability, she digs deep into the unspoken epidemic of shame and the spectrum of broken behavior it engenders.
Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection, is a must-read.
