enjoying the View

from my kitchen window..
from my bedroom window..
this is my new view where I am moving to - I see myself gazing at the distance and just letting my thoughts run wild... reflecting on the past, present and future... it feels good to find a new sense of belonging.
this is now HOME

When I decided to get these tattoos in 1994 I knew I wanted the Symmetry - in my mind it portrays a sense of balance - I did not make an impulse decision on a whim to get a tattoo just for the sake of it. I went to Amsterdam with intent of getting a black ink only tattoo that would be timeless in appearance and that would work well on the shoulder blade and that could easily be mirror imaged for placement on my other shoulder blade.

2010 you cannot stop me if you tried

2009 had its ups and downs - its challenges, rewards, disappointments, moments of great joy and immense despair, there was anxiety and expectations, love and blessings, realizations and fear...

so for 2010 I am open - ready for the new challenges life throws my way and I will not allow anyone to hold me back, so don't even try because you might get hurt.

I draw my strength from my boys - Phoenix who is my POWERHOUSE and Zane who is our absolute perfect SUNSHINE - they make me happy and I love them both to pieces.

2010 is looking pretty bright - we're leaving the gloomy remnants of 2009 behind - waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay behind - we're letting the good energy in.

I hope you are all as lucky as me xoxo Lydia
