"The important thing is to feel your music, really feel it and believe it." --Ray Charles

A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of listening to, Aaron, a street musician in downtown Riverside. As he sang one of his original songs, I was moved not only by his lyrics, but also by his undeniable passion for music.

If you're interested, friend me on Facebook, Julie Minten (Author), I've posted a black and white version of the first shot in my slideshow.

Mornings that start off cloudy and dark are a welcomed change of pace, in a state known for continual sunshine. Better yet, was the sound of rain that followed. #photography #photographylovers #stillphotography #girlwithacamera #goodmorningpost #igdaily #iloverainydays #cloudymorning #picoftheday #photogram #nikond3400 #goodstarttotheday #mondaymorning

"Life is too short, and I'm Italian. I'd much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0."
--Sophia Bush, actress

Gotta admire a girl who isn't afraid to live her life the way SHE wants to.

Doesn't every teenager dream of becoming a rockstar? Okay, maybe that was just me. I wanted to be part Pat Benatar with a little Joan Jett mixed in for fun.
If public singing didn't freak me out so much (and if I had a decent singing voice) I'd try Karaoke and "Cruisin" would be my song choice... "Let the music take your mind...
Ooh just relax and you will find...
You're goona fly away, glad you're going my way...
I love it when we're Cruisin together..." What would your song choice be?
Have a fantastic weekend!!

Sometimes, the path we thought would bring us joy and contentment, ends up being the wrong one for us. Pride and ego, won't allow us to stop, even though the universe sends us several obvious signs. Eventually, even the strongest of us tire and give in. We are left feeling exhausted, disappointed, hurt, and maybe even a little angry. Just remember this: You hold the key and the roadmap to your future. All you have to do is make the choice to turn around and begin again.

On December 22, 2016 a lifetime goal of mine became real. Here I am, almost seven months later, and I'm still a little stunned when I think about it. My life is the same. I still make dinner, grumble about the laundry and reluctantly clean my house. Now, however, that negative voice that used to say, "I could never do that", knows better than to tell me I can't. Thanks to all those who have supported me, either by purchasing my book or leaving encouraging words.

So, when your adult daughter decides to act as your personal chaffuer, you don't argue. Instead, you enjoy the view.

"I like trains. I like their rhythm, and I like the freedom of being suspended between two places, all anxieties of purpose taken care of; for this moment I know where I'm going." --Anna Funder
