I’ve Got The Month Of May

I was going to go with N’SYNC, but I chose to do it old school and go with The Temptations, plus I thought it was best suited seeing that I literally do have the month of May so it works out! I seriously cannot believe that we have just arrived at the end of April, I do got have to say though, I do appreciate how the months are taking their time to arrive, at least that’s how I personally feel, can’t really speak for everyone else, but I like to think that each month so far has stayed a while, in a sense of they haven’t over stayed, but have just been enjoying themselves for the time they were here for, it’s nice, but that’s just how I have been looking at it, might be weird to say, who knows!

Now although May is set to arrive in a couple of hours, we still have to spend one more day with April and really let her know that she did alright, sure we probably had our up’s and downs, but I got to say that I have a soft spot for April, I mean she gave us a beautiful Super Moon the other night, so gorgeous it was, I didn’t get a photo on the day of it, but I did get one where it was big and bright before the actual Pink Super Moon, I did see it glow though! April for me, has it’s mixed feelings, I do like it, but it also makes me go “oh gosh” that’s only because it’s quite a special and important month to me in many different ways, but yeah April and I see eye to eye and at times don’t, but I still like to acknowledge it as well!

When it came to the month of April, I won’t say it was bad, but it definitely had it’s frustrating and non favorite moments we’ll say, but all that aside, it wasn’t a terrible month, I’m going to choose to take the positives of this soon ending month that is April and I’m going to hope and count on this month that will soon be called May and just trust that all is well with it, because to be honest…..I’m slight wary on it, you might be thinking why!? I have my reasons, but I have a lot of hope that it will be fine, because I’m going to do my damn best to make sure that it is! Just like April, May and I have our moments, but it’s still the month that I have a soft spot for, can’t really tell you how it’s going to be this month, to be fair we all won’t really know how it will be…..guess we’ll find out once we’ve entered it and sat with it for a while, but until then, we’ll wish April a safe and well trip and welcome May once she’s all set!

Here’s a few photo’s I’ve taken throughout the month of April and just some personal favorites of mine ^_^ a bit crazy knowing this is the last blog post of the ending month, hope you like the photos I’ve shared, I’ve been kind into taking pictures of things that inspire me lately, not as much, but somewhat!

Portals With Feelings Of Connection…

Happy Saturday to you all, it feels a little odd, yet not that odd to be writing again on here, I kinda feels like I haven’t left, but I know that it’s been a bit of a while since i’ve been here as well, now the title of this post might be a little weird to most of you, but it’s based around some dreams I had and these dreams are a little hard to not only explain, but to look towards the meaning of as well, believe me I tried to looking them up, but I could never figure out how to word them so what’s the next best thing!?

I write about them!! I won’t go into the fullness of the dream, mainly because I don’t quite remember everything from it, but for the parts I do remember, i’m going to try and share them in the best way that I can. We’ll start with the portal part of the title, it’s a little weird so we’ll get that out the way first…..part of me thinks that it came off of inspiration from a show that i’ve gotten into, that show being Once Upon A Time!! In case some of you know the show and haven’t gotten around to watch it, I will not spoil, there will be non of that here…for those that don’t know about it, the show is based off fairytale stories turned into Disney movies,

with a good amount of twists added, along with a few tales from nursery rhymes as well! It’s a pretty good show, on the second season of it now, but that aside….I feel my dream, that part of the dream, came from the show….I guess there’s small spoilers, a portal is involved at least in the last episode that I watched, but that’s all I will say, in case some of you are interested in checking it out! I’m not sure why I had a dream where a portal was in it, but who said dreams were easy to figure out!? In the dream the portal was made of water and it was like there was a hole within the ground, but at an angle it was the weirdest thing!!

In this part of the dream I was going into this portal I guess to get someone….but what was odd with this portal is that it didn’t really take long to get to wherever I was going, it was literally like a step in, kinda like a door, you go in and there you are, also this portal was outside within nature, now in this moment i’ve gone into this water portal and it’s lend me to a new part of the dream and this part of the dream, I see a gate and on the other side of the gate was a man and a little boy, the person I was with trying for us to not be seen just yet, at least that’s the feeling I get from this dream, we’re not in a place out of the ordinary, we’re actually in like a park area or I guess you can say more like an open field park type area with a wooden treehouse near ones that you build it was like a balcony…

I also feel there was a lake on the other side, further away, overhead, I was also talking to somebody and then out of nowhere a dog shows up, a big brown dog barking with it’s paw on the wooden railing like part of this treehouse and his leg paws standing, this dog later jumped off it, it wasn’t all that high don’t worry then it came towards me and the person still barking, but I felt calm with it, it never attacked us though it just barked and then out of nowhere this older guy shows up, trying to get the dog to bark more as if he wanted the dog to do something, after a while awhile the dog came closer me and I gave it a pet and then it was calm and for some reason the guy looked a bit upset about that, it was weird…..but that’s that part of my dream

The other part which won’t be as long comes more from different things and is more feeling based than anything, I saw myself painting like first person, so here’s the painting, I see the painting, kind of thing…and it was like the closer I got to painting more i’d get this feeling of where things started to make sense, like when you’re actually getting something and this isn’t the first time it’s happened, i’ve been having these kind of dreams where this feeling has been coming quite often lately to me, i’ve also had this happen with me playing one of my favorite games within my dreams, as i’m planning what I have in mind to do with it in my dream,

That feeling of “i’m getting it” comes back, I don’t know how to explain it other than everything feels like it’s piecing together and connecting in the way it’s supposed to and that is what I mean with the other part of the title, i’m not really sure why, but i’ve been having these feelings and weird dreams for some time now and I find myself trying to understand it, by going back into those dreams and seeing what else I can see to help me get it better, but maybe it’s for a reason that I shouldn’t question and that will soon later make sense!!

P.S. I also got to have a conversation with one of my favorite musicians, which was awesome….I just wish I could remember these conversation, that I have with the people I talked to in these weird dreams, it might help a bit….

Closely Looking…..

Have you ever looked at a tree closely!? No I don’t mean up close and personal, but more while taking in the scenery around you, but keep your focus on something specific for a good while. To explain it, I like to go in the backyard and sit there for a while, either that or i’ll somewhat pace back and fourth, while doing one of those things, i’ll have my focus on the birds if I see any, sometimes squirrels and most times i’m looking up at the trees,

Yesterday though, I found myself in admiration with the way the trees were, while really glancing at them, I came to the realization that if you look at it long enough, they sorta look like roots…..yes I know trees have roots that they plant themselves in the ground with, but what I mean is that when there’s very little leaves on them, they look roots touching the sky and then I thought about how sometimes brain activity looks like that, scientifically speaking in a way I guess, kinda…..not actually really sure, I know what I mean i’m just not sure if it’s making sense coming out, but we’ll move on….

Lightning when it’s flashing in the sky during a thunderstorm can also look like it actually, which I find interesting, they’re all like root like, as weird as all this may sound…..long story short, I found it fascinating knowing that if you look at a tree that doesn’t have a lot of leaves to it long enough……..it becomes something different and sometimes it’ll remind you of things,

Whether they make sense or not, I also thought with the leaves, on certain parts of the tree, looked kinda like a paint brush, then again that might’ve just been me, I realize this post might look like a scratch on the head,

but the whole point of it, well that I was trying to make I think was that sometimes if you look closely at something, it can give you something interesting and maybe have you look at it a little different to how you might’ve normally seen it before or it might just have you admiring it, giving you a sense of appreciation for it, just a little more deeply…..

This Was Meant To Be An Album Review Post…..But Now It’s Something Else….

Okay so as i’m writing this, it’s the first of April, speaking of first let me just say, I kinda can’t believe it’s April already, just a couple months ago, like the beginning of this year, it felt like it was slowly going, but the fact that we’re now in the 4th month of 2020…..is a little insane!! Now even though we’re in the fourth month of this year, it doesn’t mean that it hasn’t took it’s time arriving, I think each month so far has had their fair share of importance,

Meaning I wouldn’t quite say the months have zoomed by like they usually do, which I guess is pretty good so to say, yeah this year so far hasn’t really been all that great with everything going on now, but still……let’s just try and keep as positive as we can though, it’s can be a little hard in these times, I know, but if we can spread a little light in someway, then it won’t be so bad right!? As you can tell from the title, we’re going to try or shall I say were going to try and review/share some thoughts on one of my favorite bands the Jonas Brothers and their latest album Happiness Begins

Now I have yet to really sit and listen to this album, I was meant to listen to it earlier and get my thoughts going on it, but I ended up doing something else that I wasn’t expecting, but on a good note, I made something that i’m pretty happy with, now I know it’s not the best photo, but i’m pretty happy with this little decorative branch tree, there was a lot of trees and vines removed from my backyard…..now you might be wondering why I made this well, it wasn’t planned, I was just going for my usual trip to the backyard to sit and get some air and when I got there, it was everywhere

Kinda got emotional, not sure why, I think it was the fact that i’ve been going there for a while now, it’s the only place I go when I need to think or just want to sit for a while and the trees are always there and to see it without anything really, I didn’t like it, also there’s a log that i’ve been using as a stand for my camera when i’m recording and that was also gone for a moment, I found it and did my best to hide it away where only I know where it is, so hopefully that doesn’t get touched again!!

Also don’t mind the blinds, especially that one sticking out, other than that, I really like this, there’s some pebbles inside the vase that I cleaned out when I was outside and then Lysol’d when I got inside, the pebbles are there to keep the branch tree steady, these pebbles I had for a long time, I still got more in case you’re wondering, you probably weren’t though……

I knew they’d come in handy eventually, there’s also something else in the vase keeping the decorative branch tree up, but uhhh it’s a secret…….alright it’s a bag of coins, happy!! IMPROVISATION GOTTA LOVE IT!!! As for the album review that will be set for tomorrow, I want to do it a certain way,

but I kinda don’t have the energy to do it the way I want right now, I probably shouldn’t have stayed outside so long…….in my backyard, not near people just to make that clear, I was trying to do something,

What you see in the photo, however I had a completely different thing in mind to what I ended up going with instead, I gotta say though, my original idea probably wouldn’t have fit anyway, due to not really having space for it, but hey this one works too, I just picked a few branches that I felt would fit and tied a rubber band to it, it’s doing it’s job well i’d say!!

I’m going to have to change the title to this post now, by the time you read this the title will be changed to something else, it was just going to be the album review as the title, luckily the planned post doesn’t need to be up until the end of the week, at least that’s how I set it anyway in my journal, but tomorrow definitely we’ll be taking a look at the Jonas Brothers and their latest album Happiness Begins…….still excited and I can’t wait!!

Woodland Mountains (June 7th, 2019)

Deep in the Woodland Mountains, exploration awaits with a special tree at hand, you might think magic is within it, but that is not the case, what is with it though is quite a discovery you’ll have to unlock to find out, how exactly!? Well that is up to you to unfold…..maybe you’ll unlock it with some kind of riddle to solve or maybe a special hunt for something perhaps!?

Each unlocking of the tree different, but all will lead to the same discovery, what kind of discovery you might ask!? Whatever discovery you want it to be, one thing you must keep in mind when unlocking this special tree though is to not expect it to be a great discovery, it might be, but it could also be something completely different to what you think it is…..remember each unlocking of the tree different, but each unlocking the same.

You’ll come across many other things as you explore, you’ll hear the sounds of the crystal clear rivers, approach some of the most cleverest and adorable woodland creatures while all becoming speechless at the sight and height of the earthy green mountains that you’ll ever see, be wary however as there may be some dangers lurking…..exploration awaits, good luck!!

Rose Garden (June 1, 2019)

Whenever I read the word Rose Garden, one thing comes to mind…..the song Rose Garden by Nick Jonas and the Administration, as you may probably guess it’s one of my favorite songs, I used to listen to it a lot when I was younger, although I haven’t heard it in a very long time, I still remember all the lyrics til this day, it’s a really good song………

Nick Jonas knows how to write good music, with songs like this, he takes you on a bit of a walk as he tells you a story with his lyrics, this song in particular though, it was the song that actually inspired this creation here.

I don’t really know what to say about this one, I know I like it, but that’s all i’m able to say on it, also the blue background was actually a different color at first, I was trying to choose a color that I felt went well with everything which is why I ended up changing it to the blue you see now.

Give a listen to the inspiration behind this creation here, it’s pretty old, but it’s still good too: Rose Garden By Nick Jonas & The Administration

Garden….(May 26, 2019)

I was inspired to create something, using the the word Garden, from a song I heard, it’s actually one of my all time favorite songs and it’s by an artist that i’ve mentioned before, two days ago actually…….

The artist’s name is Scott James, you might’ve heard me speak of him before with my last post where I shared my other creation themed on the word River, which is actually another song of his, Scott’s not very well known,

However he’s very talented, his music is quite unique, he always goes for a mellow calming type of music style, although he’s been coming up with different sounds for his music for a while now, i’m not used to, but i’d be lying if I said they weren’t interesting and that I didn’t like it.

He still has a bit of his original sound tangled along within the new sound he’s working with, which is good, because I really do appreciate his mellow approaches with some of his songs, they let you wander off a while when you listen to them and sometimes you need that……

Garden though, is one of those songs that you can’t help, but take in as it’s playing, it’s also pretty relaxing which is good because who doesn’t like to relax right!? Now with this creation, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, I just had the word Garden in mind and I knew I wanted to make something with it, but I just didn’t know how i’d make it……

As you can see, it’s just a small and simple little Garden, it’s got a few birds, some flowers, some critters and a little tree to it, nothing too big, but it holds up pretty nicely i’d say…….

Here’s the song that inspired this creation: Garden by Scott James

Elements: Earth (Part 3)

Where we get sunsets, sunrises and all the best of the sky……my favorite is the night sky though, I find it to be the most fascinating!! You got the stars, the moon and just the wonders of the night…..but with the day however, you get to see the greenery of the Earth and the way it goes well the sky……

You get to really take it in you know!? Then we have the rivers which combine themselves with waterfalls that flow so calmly, but roughly too, we get beautiful stones from them, as well as the caves, those are the special ones……there’s forests, unique places, unknown places, you name it!!

Most importantly though, we have the Earth’s grounds……it’s where we explored, wandered and built the things that we have now, there’s a lot of history and a whole lot of story telling with the Earth, there’s a story within every bit of it, a lot of what we know and a lot of what we don’t……..

That’s what makes it lovely and interesting though, not only is the Earth a place, but I gotta say it’s probably one of the best elements that we have, don’t you think!?

If I Was A Painter…..

Let’s do something different today…….let’s pretend we’re painters, if you were a painter what would you paint!?…….if I were to tell you what i’d paint, i’d just say that at the moment I don’t know, right now, i’m just looking at a blank canvas trying to figure that out myself………

If I had to describe what i’d want it to look like though, I don’t know, I’d probably want it to have a calm feeling of someplace that calls to me, i’d probably would use greens, maybe some blues, browns, you know colors that feel nice and calm…….

I’d want it to have a special kind of feeling, that’s slightly hard to imagine, but is also very easy to feel, something that when you think about it, it brings the biggest smile to your face and makes you happy to be there……

You know like you’re right where you should be……I want it to be a place that isn’t too hot, but where it isn’t that cold either, a place that has just the right amount of both cold and hot……..i’d love for it to rain, not too much of course, but just enough you know, wouldn’t want it to be too big of a place, but I wouldn’t want it to be too small either.

I’d like it to be a place that makes you go, this feels right and it feels good……..i’d love for there to be cafes, but i’d also love for there to be a lot of nature around, it would be nice if it had an old timey (if that’s a word) feel too it, enough where it just feels good to be around.

Have it where it has a rustic, but slightly modern look to it, not too modern though, more like an old town where you can feel the story behind it, as well as feel yourself connecting to it……….some type of village of some sort, you know!?

I don’t know, I guess if I had to paint something, i’d want it to have those kind of descriptions to it, you know a place that feels right, the moment you’re in it…….that’s a portrait i’d hang up on my wall and look at a lot.

How about you guys, what would you paint, if you were a painter!?

Change (Oct 12, 2018)

Journal Entry (Oct 12,2018)

Change is a very big thing, it can also be a very scary thing as well, we all fear a little change sometimes, especially when it’s something new that we’re still getting use to. Some of us embrace change though, while others kinda get a little anxious when it comes to the thought of it, we get so overwhelmed sometimes that we think we should just settle for what we know and for me i’m starting to realize that we shouldn’t do that, we all need a little change, be it in our environment, the way we live and even in the way we think and how we see ourselves. We get so use to being a certain way that because we’ve been that way for so long, we have it in our minds that we don’t need to change.Β 

Sometimes though we do, because in the end we know that it’s gonna make us better people and help us grow as a person, it’s okay to be scared because it means that we care, sure when it comes to change we may not know what exactly it will bring us, but maybe that’s for a reason……maybe we aren’t meant to know, maybe we’re just meant to accept it and embrace it, instead of trying to always fight to stop it from happening. We should all want to change a little, especially when we know deep down we need it, because maybe the old way isn’t working, maybe it’s time for us to kick ourselves in the backside and tell ourselves to shape up and to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and just accept that no matter what we do, something is bound to change and we can either embrace it or let it push us so hard that it makes us breakdown more often then we may like.Β 

We all fear change, but we really shouldn’t, because change is apart of life, it helps us move forward, it helps us see things from a different perspective and it lets us see things we’ve never seen before. Change helps show us what it is we’re capable of, whether we see it in ourselves in the beginning or we have others try and show us, so we can discover it along the way, no matter how we may perceive change, it’s gonna happen and it’s on us to really embrace it and see what that change has in store for us or we can just let it intimidate us and risk missing out on something amazing.

Who knows it might be something we really need, but we wouldn’t know because we’re always running away from it, because we’re scared of what might happen. Instead of us always worrying about the what if’s, why don’t we just try looking more on the side of why not and let’s see what this could be, will we be scared!? yeah we’ll probably be terrified, but that still shouldn’t stop us from seeing what is out there for us, we should always welcome change no matter what it is, eventually no matter what the change is like, it’s always gonna end up having a silver lining somewhere, we just have to learn to always see the best in everything.
