Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist
Those Shadowed Hands
Photo: I love the lines on the potter's wheel. As you add water to the clay they slowly inch away from the wet area and then fling off quickly when crossing into dry wheel space. It makes for this really neat organic architechture. In retrospect, I should have gotten pictures of that alone but I was distracted by the light and the hands.

I'm proud to say I predicted the light quality when we got to the Craftshop and request lady_fox use a particular wheel. Nearly every shot I took - about 400 - were keepers. I had to choose between slight shifts in framing or angle. I uploaded the best of various groups. It's really neat having that happen. I attribute some to a better camera with a VR lens.

But really? I'm just getting really good at this.

Last night was much needed relaxation. Fox and I ordered really terrible pizza with cheese in any crevice that could support it and watch season 2 of 30 Rock. Um.. wow, did the show really hit its stride in season 2. We nearly fell off the couch laughing.

I expect today to be frustrating but not nearly as tumultuous as yesterday was. I lost control at work and emoted far more than I would have liked. Plus, other non-work issues are feeling better today. And I slept really, really well last night.

I dreamed that everyone needed to borrow my shoes because I'm the only person they knew with water-proofing on the soles.

I also dreamed... well. They were hot and I believe one of them will play out tonight, actually.
  • I'm rather liking the regularity erotic dreams I've been having.
  • And I totally dreamed about my internet girlfriend last night. :) Hi nightlikeariver!
  • Neko Case will sing me through the day.
  • One of my team members was an actor before his current TS role. I saw him on Desperate Housewives this weekend. Weird.
  • Do these entries ever end when I think they will initially? Always a list of things with me.

  • Your result for The Chakra Test...

    The Sensuous One

    You have scored 100% Desire - Your dominant Chakra is the "Sacral (Spleen) or Orange Chakra"

    The "Sacral (Spleen) or Orange Chakra" is where energy for one's sexuality and feelings originates from. It is located at the spleen (and genitals). This is the chakra which is most developed in you at this time.

    The Sacral chakra is about feeling and sexuality. When it is open your feelings flow freely, and are expressed without you being over-emotional. You are open to intimacy and you can be passionate and lively. You have no problems dealing with your sexuality.

    Depending on your percentage score, there is always more room for development. When this chakra is under-active you may become stiff and unemotional. You may even develop a poker-like face, as a defence mechanism, to stop others from knowing what you are feeling. If the chakra becomes over-active, you may become overly, emotionally attached to people and sexually active.

    What is most important is to find balance amongst all 7 chakras. Have a look at what percentages you scored on the others and work to increase their power and balance with each other.

    Root Chakra: 47% Passion, Sacral(Spleen) Chakra: 100% Desire, Solar Plexus (Navel) Chakra: 88% Purpose, Heart Chakra: 100% Balance, Throat Chakra: 89% Expression, Third Eye Chakra: 0% Imagination and Crown Chakra: 100% Spirituality!

    "Sacral Chakra" Key Words: Feelings, Emotions, Intimacy, Procreation, Polarity, Sensuality, Confidence, Sociability, Freedom, Movement

    "Sacral Chakra"Attributes: Color - Orange: Sense - Taste: Element - Water: Seat - Creativity

    If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback!

I remember a polka-dot dress flying off a balcony after we went dancing.

It's SO satisfying, isn't it, when you cross the line between choosing between the "bad photos" and the "in-focus, good-exposure photos" to choosing between the ones you just like better.

Congratulations :-)

Danke. I've had a number of shoots like that lately, this one was just impressive given the number of photos taken.

Oh I see, dumping me tonight to have sexy time with someone else!

Season 2 of 30 rock was FUCKING AWESOME. Season 3 is pretty damn good so far too. : D

I MAY be dumping you for work. I have cracked some whips and we'll see? :/ I would entirely prefer West Wing with you over working late.

I Like you! I even know what we're getting you for your birthday (woo, teasing) and it doesn't involve a slap in the face! yay!
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: February 18th, 2009 06:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Whatever, you love meetings and deadlines and staying late. Workaholic! You're addicted to workahol!

Brian says he told you what he's getting me, the bastard. He specifically does that to drive me crazy. : P I'm trying to convince myself it's a Wii fit so I'll have an answer and stop wondering (but I can't tell him that because he says if I decide I'm SURE it's any one thing he'll take it back. EVIL. HE IS EVIL).

Maybe I like slaps in the face! Maybe that is disappointing!

B-rye's gift for you is pretty awesome too. I think it is more awesome than a slap to the face.
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: February 18th, 2009 06:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Must be exceedingly awesome then, everybody loves a good slap to the face.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: February 18th, 2009 07:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
I dare to venture that it's even better than TWO slaps to the face!
