It beats the alternative.

I convinced myself to get off my posterior and go outside today. Even though I’m not feeling that great I figured a little warm sun on my face would make me feel better than lying in my bed playing Bubble Mania on my phone. And I was right.

I went to second dock, or middle dock, whatever you want to call it. I’ve pretty much worn the place out now in regards to photos, I need a new place to shoot. I think I’ve got everything I can get there now. Here’s what I found…

Shower, minus the meteors.

Song of the night: Yer not the Ocean-The Tragically Hip.

Tonight there’s supposed to be an Orionoid meteor shower on the go, and there probably is up there somewhere, I just didn’t see it. I left my apartment totally excited to get a few photos only to discover it was pouring down rain. Major, major rainfall. I was a little disappointed, but I didn’t want to come home empty handed so here you go.

Inclined

Inclined*

Practice being normal –

I make no sound.

Lying in silence,

the world is not real, really.

Listen for a whisper.

Drip;

tick-tock;

drip.

Practice being extraordinary,

I make all the sounds.

Bells and whistles.

Chapstick and flats.

Lipstick and heels.

Baby, we are still young.

We look like ourselves,

just like everyone else.

In danger of being on fire.

We melt inside our clothes.

Practice being normal;

in numbness,

surreal.

Grey and Orange

Everything I learned in school goes out the window when it comes to creating a headline. Grey and Orange just happen to be my current favorite colors.

Wicked good songs that I’m currently obsessed with:

Now that I’ve got that outta the way, here’s a few images from this weekend. I never really did much except relax, which was great because I worked through last weekend. You know what I noticed? sleep is so much more enjoyable with a comforter, haha. I always had a quilt on my bed but I switched over to a comforter last week and I sleep so much better. Cozy, like sleepin’ amongst the clouds.

Anyway, here’s some photos, I won’t keep you much longer.

Thankful.

If I were to sit here and list everything that I was thankful for in my life it would take me a really long time. Perhaps that’s it though, people don’t take the time to appreciate things. I’ll start an un-justified list, meaning I’ll just say simply what it is and not explain it.

Mom and Dad.
My best friends.
Having a roof over my head.
My health.
Clean air.
Food.
The night sky.
Sound mind.
The internet.

Haha. There’s obviously so much more to this list, I didn’t want to go into specifics or get too materialistic. But I am thankful for all of those things, and I’m thankful for them every single day & not just the second Monday in October.

In other news, I spent my weekend filming the Trapline Marathon for work. What a rush that was! I was so impressed by all the runners, especially two in particular. There was an 8 yo running with who I can only assume to be his dad, he ran the 10k and killed it! And then there was Michal Kapral, the ‘joggler’. He holds the Guinness World Record title for fastest marathon while juggling three balls. That was a sight to see!

My morning on Sunday started at 6 a.m. and lasted until about 2. And then from 6 to 9 at night. After that was all over, I felt I really needed to wind down so my friend Doug and I took a drive to the dock and C-Side and guess what I got? Obviously some night photos. Here they are.
