Today I got the idea to invite blonde girls to model for my upcoming Anastasia piece. Well the idea came first to invite the girl I saw on the green way, within a few minutes Anna, a friend of a friend, sent me a message on Facebook. Why she was as good a candidate as any! So I invited her and she was ecstatic about it! So I will work out some design elements and we'll see where this goes. I will still see if I can invite the other girl since she is local. Plus it is a challenge and I like that. :)
Here's the initial sketches I came up with today for the piece. She will have plenty of flexibility with it. I want her to have fun with it and enjoy the photo shoot.
Do you know that it wasn't until I'd sat down and drawn up some conceptual work for this piece and then began to write Anna that I made the connection of the similarity of their names? Anna and Anastasia. Coincidence? Haha! I am uber excited at the idea that this will work out! I'm totally grateful that she was even willing to pose for it. Truly!
I caught 43 a few times today and got a picture of 5:43pm just now.
Today I went to the green-way in hopes that I would pass that girl I saw last time. When I got to the green-way there was a great big stork, at least I think that's what it is, standing large and tall right at the edge of the lake. Man that's a big bird! I was wondering what they symbolize in Japanese folklore. I think I will look it up. I've never seen a stork just stand there like that before.
Okay so apparently it is a crane, and it symbolizes Eternal Youth. It is a very good omen! If it is a Stork then it means Everlasting Peace. Hey I'll take either one. :) Another description I found for crane was "The Crane is associated with long life, health, happiness, wisdom and good luck."
And here are some of the 43s and 11:11s I got with my camera today.
So my brain is telling me "Go to sleeeeep go to sleep go to sleep nooowwwww...." So I have decided that I will go to sleep now. I was going to come up with a final note for the day but my brain is about ready to shut off on me. I will intend tonight to receive visions of what direction to take things. Continuously learning and growing. Not getting stuck on any one point. Integrating and grounding the lessons as they arrive to my awareness through action and allowing more to flow in. The consistent theme is self knowledge, Spiritual liberation and self empowerment. In a word, Awakening.
All things creative.
