Now seed time and harvesttime is a principle in the bible, but has so many other aspects of our lives. The seeds we plant will grow and grow. The good and the bad. Now here’s another concept as an artist or for artists. You are very OPEN so you absorb your environment and the things going on around you conscious and unconsciously spoken. So be careful with allowing others negative images of your creations to make you doubt your gift. If you create a picture of a cow that dances and someone perceives the cow to be something other than what it is. Your ideal of creating the cow dancing is simply that. but someone in a position of power or authority that deems your cow bad can convince you that the cow is bad, then you doubt your art. Why did you see the art? Because you are open to the art. So remember if you have been given a gift to create, do just that, then let go. You don’t know why and you aren’t any of your creations, you are merely a vessel. Remember that. Recuerda tu regalo de Dios. Remember your gift from GOD. That;s it for now. Location scouting. GOD, Universe, Muses, thank you.
Thankful and grateful for it all. Stay tuned. For now. Winjoy the landscape photography. sunrise photos coming for the next few days or maybe not. Well enjoy your day. Peace.

Creative Ideas are with you always. So I went for a walk today to get rid of some frustration that I was feeling regarding things occurring that are out of hands. I decided that I was going to climb this hill. I had drunk some water earlier and I was relaxing but getting ready to do the deed. Lol. Fontana Hills Sky
The link above will take you to the picture. Let me see if I can figure out how to insert it here.
So as you can see. Ah, destiny to climb the mountain. Right. Well that’s what I thought to myself. It was so hard. There is a path that goes around the mountain but I didn’t start there. I started at the bottom of the face of the mountain. It was such good exercise but man it hurt. I had to stop at least 7 to 9 times, maybe even 10. It was a lot of rest because at some points there were only rocks and you had to low crawl to make it up some of the ridges. but it was good. As you get to the top there are rocks that are painted with various figures like star wars, alice in wonderland, and various other cartoons, lol. Here is one.
Whoever created this did an Awesome job and really took there time. But the paintings acted like land marks cuz like I said there is like 4 or 5 false/fake ridges before you reach the pinnacle of the mountain. One thing that was really weird/cool was at certain points on some ridges you could hear complete silence/stillness. It was so quiet I could hear my heartbeat. Yes, that quiet. So the experience was pretty cool in and of itself. I really liked it. And last but not least the grand finale. The top. Here are some pictures from the top.
As I walked and continued to walk it dawned on me(as it always does during exercise) no one was with me. I was all alone. It was scary but thrilling at the same time, but more scary. I have heard countless stories of people getting bit by snakes and mountain lion scares but another part of me wanted to climb the mountain in spite of all those obstacles or perceived difficulties. What I realize a lot of time is fear or the things that are stopping us are in our head. But my persistent effort in spite of the fear, little step, by little step, We get there. Not as fast as some others or as fast as we would like but we get there. Another thing in todays age of hyper connectivity if a lot of people aren’t cheering you on or championing your idea then your a loser/nobody. But I realized that’s not true. Who makes the determination what is great to a person’s sense of accomplishment and what is not. A five year old learning how to ride a bike doesn’t compare themselves to a tour de france racer. IF they were they would never get on the bike because that’s extremely self destructive. So where does creativity come from? anywhere. But when you creating or trying things out if you only have an audience of 10 or 12. Be grateful for even that. Which is also my way of saying Thank You to anyone and everyone who follows me and likes my instagram pics as I take this journey and reads this blog from time to time. Climbing the hill reminded me that the route to your goal is long and laborious, but with determination and will power you can get there.
