Sometimes, life gets so busy that we lose focus on the things that are important to us the most. We stress all day about work, money, bills, expectations, deadlines; never taking a moment to pause and breathe. We start drowning in an ocean of murky waters, struggling to focus on where we are going.

It's times like this I find myself sitting and staring off into space with nothing in my head but white noise. Then after a while I am able to grab hold of one thought, and begin smoothing out the convolutions in my my mind until I can eventually rest... Hoping that tomorrow, I will find focus.

Favourite Things Friday - From C

today Im swept up in this romance.
When with you im invincible, protected by your smell, when I think of not being the one who kisses you, I think of a living hell. For as long as I can remember, ive always been afraid, but once ive held you in my sleep, the dreams go on for days. Ive looked at our reflection baby, I cant believe what I see. A girl so truly beautiful is standing there with me. Ive gazed into your eyes, as you looked into mine, its purity in its finest form, ive lost my grasp of time. I only have a small regret... that whats locked up in my mind. Are the most amazing photographs where I document our lives. Eternity is forever, but id wait forever more, because im no longer just waiting, for that thing worth waiting for.

I love being a hopeless romantic.

Foals. There is simply no possible way they could be cuter.

Just when I was about to implode under pre-Christmas stress, I sat down on a stormy morning and began a new album instead. Because, you know, I'm responsible and focused like that.

There is nothing quite like the simple, yet wonderful, 50mm lens.

fun with a 50

i am loving my 50mm lens at the moment, we are slowly developing a relationship based on mutual respect and admiration.

I have discovered that shots are taking more planning in order to get the focus point correct but some of my "mis-shots" have actually turned out ok.

this is a little taster from some park action I enjoyed last nite with my family.

~Friday Fave on a Saturday~ with Lola

I was a busy little bee yesterday, celebrating International Day of People with Disability,
and was far to exhausted to blog last nite.

These are some pics from the table sponsored by the Grafton Regional Art Gallery, Rose Marin - Public Programs and Education Officer had prepared some awesome interactive activities centred around the recent JADA Exhibition at the gallery, I really enjoyed participating in the art activities alongsinde my dear friend Felicity and watching the enjoyment that the PWD had playing with "super-pencils", the feeling tubs, the make your own book project and the caption page.
My "Super-Pencil" Meditation Drawing"

So my friday favorite was seeing my local community intergrating and participating and celebrating out differences, recognising that we all have disabilities but we also have abilities and this is what we should be focused on.

I love watching the baby birds at our nearest waterhole. So fluffy and curious, and unbearably cute.

Favourite Things Friday - From C

Another friday before you know it! and again its time for favourite things friday. With Christmas looming today was Tree day in the house of Courtney. With two little kids wanting to do tree like it was the best thing on earth, and at that age, it doesnt really get much better than Tree decorating. After a few breakages a few tears, and alot of tinsel on the floor, my favourite thing was sitting on the couch relaxing, and watching to lights twinkle. There is something truly magical about fairy lights. Anything can happen during your day when fairy lights are involved.

put my feet up, sip my tea, and crochet a blanket for a tent of love.
cant get much more favourite than that.

enjoy your friday evening
