Remembering Moments – Cannon Beach, Oregon

30 Jul

I took these with my iPhone then edited in VSCO Cam (also available for android users).  In the silhouette photos I learned that I couldn’t click at the moment my 12-year-old dancer jumped.  When I did that, I ended up missing her jumps since they happened pretty fast.  Instead, I clicked just a second before and that did it!  It’s all about timing.  It would have been easier if I had the DSLR with me but I didn’t bring it.  The family was trying to travel light since this was a road trip in the Camry.

The Blue City – Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India

29 Jul

Time flies. And so do I – all over India. This past weekend was dedicated to Amritsar – known for its Golden Temple and the Wagah Border. The upcoming weekend will be spent in Varanasi – apparently one of the craziest places on earth. However, two weekends ago I was in Jodhpur – the Blue City. Here it is;

Vintage Furniture – Seattle, Washington

28 Jul

I want to tell you a quick love story.

It all started while my man and I were wandering through a new-to-me Goodwill last weekend. I spotted the beautiful, golden mid-century desk from across the room. As I walked quickly towards it, I noticed its slender legs and wonderfully sized drawers.

The decision to purchase was only slightly difficult as I had had a long, moving-furniture kind of week. Thursday and Friday evening had been spent loading in my lovely, new white couch and loading out my huge, dark couch to its new home. I was a bit tired of loading furniture like I was in the process of moving. There was lots to consider. However, for over a year I have been using a pop up table as a desk and a mid-century desk would fit wonderfully in my 1962 apartment. The finish needed a bit of love, but when I saw the price of only $15, it didn’t take long for me to realize that it was meant to be. I took it home and loaded it immediately on to my porch in order to sand it down.

As I was unscrewing the handles from the face of the drawers, I noticed something I had not seen before. A key! A beautiful key with a heart-shaped center had been carefully hidden, screwed in on the back of a handle. Somebody had obviously cherished whatever the key belonged to enough to hide it so well.

Musical Pleasure – Helanada

25 Jul

Soul Food

Music can lift you up, bring you down or set you cruising.

Music has been with us since time immemorial, it can be used to promote rest and relaxation, motivate us to get up and dance or play. Good music also takes the drudgery out of work.

Abstract external stimuli, like music or art, can often trigger heightened pleasure responses in people, even though they can’t be thought of as vital for survival or the result of conditioned reinforcement. They are perceived as being rewarding rather than actually having a direct or chemical influence.

Music can give intense pleasure by delivering chemical rewards in the brain that are equal to the joy of good food or even sex, and now scientists think they may have identified the part of the brain where this pleasure starts. Brain scans have shown a direct relationship between activity in people’s nucleus accumbens and how much they were willing to pay for a song.

In light of Robert Sapolsky’s work, it may well be that music acts as a catalyst that allows dopamine to actually do it’s job as the pleasure in music is in the listening.

Warmth of the Locals – Siem Reap, Cambodia

24 Jul

Seeing the locals warmly smile to us, with the beautiful backdrop of the fields of rural Siem Reap, made the quad ride (and waking up early!) all worth it. :)
