    Solitude

    Solitude is pleasant. Loneliness is not. ~ Anna Neagle Solitude, and knowing the difference between solitude and loneliness is the key to enjoying being alone with yourself.  However, being comfortable with yourself is the key to feeling good in your own skin.  Finding that balance is more difficult for some, but worth the work.  Solitude can be therapy and embracing it can eviscerate loneliness. It is good to know the difference but neither feeling is good or bad.  It is how you feel.  Of course, the ultimate goal is to feel good about yourself and comfortable in your own skin.  You learn to embrace the rolls.  You appreciate the scars because…

    Middle Section

    I have made no secret that I am not a fan of my middle section.  The rolls when I am naked and trying to hide them with clothes and the side view… all of it.  I had always wanted that flat gorgeous stomach with a belly ring that dangled and drew the eyes to my middle section.  Also, I always said that I would wait until I lost “all the weight” and get my navel pierced.  For my entire life, I always set my goals based on my weight. One summer at the beach, my daughter wanted a new piercing.  We headed out to our safe place for piercing and tattoos in…

    Creativity

    In order to be open to creativity, one must have the capacity for constructive use of solitude. One must overcome the fear of being alone.      Rollo May This quote rings very true to me for several reasons.  I have a strange perspective on my own creativity.  At times, I feel like it flows from me like a river.  Other times, it is non-existent.  I know this is true for most people and we, as creatives take what we can get when we can get it. February Photofest 2019 has raised up an old love of mine for photography. For as long as I can remember, I have loved taking pictures.…

    Comfy socks

    Coming in just under the wire with this one.   It has been a crazy day today.  I remember a lot of talk about comfy socks so I picked this picture to share.  I truly love hanging out at home naked.  If I can’t be naked, I’m usually bundled up in sweat pants and a hoodie.  But this week we were granted a reprieve from the cold weather for a day so I walked around in a top and socks.  It felt amazing!  I love my comfy socks, and love that they match my pajama top!  I have the pants too, but, who needs pants! I have been working hard…

    Today is My Birthday

    Today is my birthday.  I’ve never been a fan of being the center of attention.  I prefer to make others my focus.  Focus on me always made me anxious.  Which seems strange to me now as I am posting pictures of myself more than just naked.  Vulnerable, doubtful, scared, hesitant.  It still blows my mind.  These past days posting these photos has been a mix of emotions. Never did I ever think I would post pictures of myself to be viewed by anyone. Sending a picture to Sir made me nervous. This month, for this project, I have been naked in my back yard, and my daughter is taking photos…
