"I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet" -Jack London

I saw this quote and I ABSOLUTELY love it. It is perfect. 

What are you afraid to say?

I got asked this and it really got me thinking. It kind of puts things in perspective. So think it through, maybe it will do the same for you...

The Princess and the Frog

I love that they are bringing back the old hand-drawn animation!!! This looks too cute.

Sad Times

From Lisa Maria Presley's Blog:

He Knew.

Years ago Michael and I were having a deep conversation about life in general.

I can’t recall the exact subject matter but he may have been questioning me about the circumstances of my Fathers Death.

At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, “I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did.”

I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that.

14 years later I am sitting here watching on the news an ambulance leaves the driveway of his home, the big gates, the crowds outside the gates, the coverage, the crowds outside the hospital, the Cause of death and what may have led up to it and the memory of this conversation hit me, as did the unstoppable tears.

A predicted ending by him, by loved ones and by me, but what I didn’t predict was how much it was going to hurt when it finally happened.

The person I failed to help is being transferred right now to the LA County Coroners office for his Autopsy.

All of my indifference and detachment that I worked so hard to achieve over the years has just gone into the bowels of hell and right now I am gutted.

I am going to say now what I have never said before because I want the truth out there for once.

Our relationship was not “a sham” as is being reported in the press. It was an unusual relationship yes, where two unusual people who did not live or know a “Normal life” found a connection, perhaps with some suspect timing on his part. Nonetheless, I do believe he loved me as much as he could love anyone and I loved him very much.

I wanted to “save him” I wanted to save him from the inevitable which is what has just happened.

His family and his loved ones also wanted to save him from this as well but didn’t know how and this was 14 years ago. We all worried that this would be the outcome then.

At that time, In trying to save him, I almost lost myself.

He was an incredibly dynamic force and power that was not to be underestimated.

When he used it for something good, It was the best and when he used it for something bad, It was really, REALLY bad.

Mediocrity was not a concept that would even for a second enter Michael Jackson’s being or actions.

I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him.

I was in over my head while trying.

I had my children to care for, I had to make a decision.

The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow.

After the Divorce, I spent a few years obsessing about him and what I could have done different, in regret.

Then I spent some angry years at the whole situation.

At some point, I truly became Indifferent, until now.

As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play The exact Scenario I saw happen on August 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (A sight I never wanted to see again) just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted.

Any ill experience or words I have felt towards him in the past has just died inside of me along with him.

He was an amazing person and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years that we had together.

I desperately hope that he can be relieved from his pain, pressure and turmoil now.

He deserves to be free from all of that and I hope he is in a better place or will be.

I also hope that anyone else who feels they have failed to help him can be set free because he hopefully finally is.

The World is in shock but somehow he knew exactly how his fate would be played out some day more than anyone else knew, and he was right.

I really needed to say this right now, thanks for listening.

The Time Traveler's Wife

My favorite book.

There are so many reasons why this is my favorite. I doubt the movie will fully live up to the world my imagination has created, but I'm completely happy with the cast (probably because Rachel McAdams is my favorite actress; side note: Johnny Depp is of course my favorite actor). I am currently re-reading this book, so I will blog about it with more depth soon, but if you haven't read it, please do.

Alice in Wonderland!!

Johnny Depp is The Mad Hatter — FIRST PICTURE!anne hathaway white queen first picture 02

I'm pretty excited about this. It is going to be crazy but wonderful.

My Dream Discovered

In 2004 Johnny Depp bought a Caribbean island for $3.6 million.The Caribbean hideaway lies in the protected Exuma Land And Sea Park and is accessible only by seaplane, boat or helicopter. In addition to some of the world's most beautiful reefs, the island also boasts six white sand beaches, a private harbour and a palm-tree-fringed lagoon. 

This is my DREAM! Think of how much money people spend on houses, and to think, they could have their own island! If ever win the lottery, I must buy an island.

Dawson's Creek

Been watching Dawson's Creek lately and Pacey is by far my favorite. Somehow he was always viewed as the goof on the show, and yet he was the deepest and the most insightful. 


Too bad I can't justify one of these. Any ideas on how I could? They are wonderful...

Glowing Waters

This a photo was taken in New Zealand. The mineral-rich water actually glows. These small bodies of water are referred to as the "Emerald Lakes", which exist amidst the volcanic grounds. These can be found on Mount Tongariro. Apparently this was Mordor's "Mount Doom" in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The top photo reminded me of an experience that I had. This photo is of the "Grotta Azzurra", which in English simply means "Blue Cove". I was told that one of the James Bond movies was filmed here. When I visited Capri, Italy, I actually swam in this cave. The locals that I followed in said that there is a bacteria that lives in the water within the cave that causes it to glow. This picture hardly does it justice. The cave is pitch black inside aside from the hole in which you enter. The water is the most florescent, vibrant, neon blue, that you have ever seen. I had to enter by grabbing a chain, lifting my legs, and shimmying my way into the hole. I remember being surrounded by jellyfish, they were incredibly gorgeous and graceful. The man that was acting as my guide promised they wouldn't hurt me if I simply kept pushing the water away from me. Unfortunately, I was not able to take my camera with me inside the cave, but I am pretty sure that the image of it will remain ingrained in my head for quite some time. I remember thinking that this wasn't the brightest idea, being that I was surrounded by jellyfish, had no idea where the hospital was, and was completely trusting a stranger to keep me safe. Turned out to be one of the best, awe-striking experiences of my life.

It's Pink

This is an albino dolphin that is actually pink! How crazy is that?

So sweet

Here comes the rain...

I absolutely love walking in the rain. Not that I love to show up to a meeting looking like a drowned rat, but more often than not, I will opt to not use my umbrella. There something exhilarating and revitalizing about the rain. Wakes me up. Helps me to feel. I truly love it.

He's Just Not That Into You

Apparently this is the time for chick flicks...another movie I want to see, or maybe I need to see...ha!

Confessions of a Shopaholic

I am pretty excited about this movie. Mostly because I think Isla Fisher is brilliant. Also, because I might have a slight shopping problem myself...

New Alternatives

I love this new concoction of sterling silver and 18kt gold coined "Ippolita Rose". It is said that it looks good on all skin types. Cool alternative to the traditional if you ask me.

One of my new favorite songs. I love the score. This single song evokes so many different emotions, it is truly amazing.

Living Walls

Patrick Blanc, Le Mur Vegetal, Vertical Garden, Musée du quai Branly, Quai Branly Museum, Living Wall, Jean Nouvel, Paris, France, Green Wall Living Architecture

We saw this leaving Paris and had no idea what it was. It is actually a wall of a museum, the Musee du quai Branly, to be exact. This struck me as fascinating and I thought I would share!

Next Stop

Those who know me, know that I am constantly planning future travels. I have just added this location to my list. While it might not be the very next trip, I hope it will be soon!
