My decision 

You’re the judge

As I smile

You’ll hold the grudge


Just do you.

Today: I finalized an all-encompassing  34 stanza poem that explains it all. Such an uplifting feeling.


 
Today: What a time to be in DC.
Singing, chanting USA, hundreds of people draped in flags, girls on men’s shoulders, climbing trees and light posts, standing atop cars, drinking straight from handles of vodka- yelling and chanting into news cameras who eagerly record the utter wildness.
I was surprised to be walked into by Geraldo Rivera - who could miss that mustache. Was it necessary that he be there at 2am? I don’t think so.
Watching the drunken excitement of hundreds of people my age, it was tempting to be swept up in the celebrations. my sobering moment was seeing the older generations who were quiet bystanders watching the young people dance, sing and drink. I couldn’t take part in the celebrations… though Patriotism I understand.
Ironically, the day before President Obama made the announcement, I was at a small bar in Downtown DC. There my friend Elizabeth and I met an attractive young man who had a huge spirit. He was in a wheelchair, having stepped on a land-mine in Afghanistan. We listened to him for about 45 mins- and all that he had to say. The major point that he wanted everyone to know… is that there IS a war out there, and people die everyday… but for what. 
I was 11 years old when 9/11 happened. Though half of my life has been infiltrated with the words “terrorism,” “Bin Laden,” and “war on terror,” I think the death of Bin Laden is more symbolic than anything.

Today: Happy Earth Day everyone! Be kind- rewind the effects of climate change!
…Or at least remember to turn out your lights when you leave the room today.

Today: Don’t overlook the sandstorm, by focusing on grains of sand.

Kolmanskop is a ghost town in southern Namibia, a few kilometres inland from the port of Lüderitz. In 1908, Lüderitz was plunged into diamond fever and people rushed into the Namib desert hoping to make an easy fortune. Within two years, a town, complete with a casino, school, hospital and exclusive residential buildings, was established in the barren sandy desert.
But shortly after the drop in diamond sales after the First World War, the beginning of the end started. During the 1950’s the town was deserted and the dunes began to reclaim what was always theirs.

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide.
