Self Portrait #499

I take many self-portraits. My favorite photographer asked me what I was trying to capture here.

What was I trying to capture?

What did I capture?

In this particular moment I had no where to be, no emails to response to, no disputes to settle, no brainstorming sessions- nothing.

I’m thankful for the responsibilities that I have chosen to take on but damn, it feels good to put it on pause for a moment.

I was remembering to just be. The sunshine was out and the breeze was blowing. Freshly washed and styled hair and my makeup free face amplified deep feelings of clear headedness or the clarity of mind I felt… feel.

Clarity – my favorite kind of charity. *Laughs

The abstract pattern the shadows casted on the wall made me think of my own journey. I am identifying and breaking my own patterns of darkness in efforts to make space and further open my heart to the light, creating my own abstracted pattern of varying hues of internal illumination. They need each other, the rays of light and darkness, for contrast and interest.

It’s my responsibility to manage my inner light and I do, with the help of earthly and heavenly guidance. ( Thank y’all kindly. *smiles wide)

What was I trying to capture here?

What did I capture here?

I captured my wholeness in every sense of the verb.

Writer’s Note: I wrote example sentences to each meaning of the word capture- it felt divine and maybe I’ll circle back and share another time. O and yes- Happy Valentine’s Day mothacluckas.



Vision

Bravely and butt nekkid from the balcony of their airBandB she shouted, “I am a sensual woman!!”

Her king laughed as he watched in admiration from his perch on their borrowed bamboo bed.

His queen turned to him and they shared a smile as she Bankhead bounced in slow-mo.

Writer’s note: Yes. Nekkid.


Ain’t no princesses here

Once upon a timeless time three queens came together.  They had random adventures, deep conversations, and occasionally twerked to popular music in the privacy of their own homes.

They wiped each others tears, gave long hugs, and laughed until they couldn’t breathe.

You see when queens come together and remember to AUTHENTICALLY  love on one another the whole kingdom vibrates higher.

*Ain’t no gossip.

Ain’t no fakery.

Ain’t no lies.

Ain’t no cat fights.

Ain’t no subtweets.

Ain’t no bullshit.

Once upon a timeless time three queens came together because the truth is queens NEED each other.
