Soul Food



When I meet people for the first time, I can do the small talk thing - only after years of learning this social skill. The reality is that I would much rather know what gets that person out of bed in the morning, what drives him or her (and I don't mean a car), her spiritual beliefs, political theories and all the things most people don't feel comfortable discussing with a total stranger. But these are things that I want to know about the person I'm talking to for the first or second time.

I will look at a troubled sky with the passing clouds, changing light and think that is what the soul looks like. What stirs the soul? It's said that music makes sounds that the soul cannot from the body as it is. What the heck is a soul anyway?

I like taking scenic photos and doing funky things with them in Photoshop. The photo you see above is one that I took at the shore while on a fishing boat this past summer. Certain images create an instant sense of peace for me. This is one of them.

Running away is a heavily underrated act of survival.

Soul is the very essence that we are as individuals. My consciousness with all my experiences from this life time and all the others. I may not remember other life times but I know that all the things I am didn't just start existing from this one life time. For me Soul food are our experiences, positive and negative and love is first on my list!

BTW, I love your blog!
