With You

I want to walk on a sandy beach
feeling the cool seabreeze
as it caresses my body
with the rays of the sunshine
warming me…

I want to sit on a magnificent rock
at the peak of the highest mountain
underneath the tallest forest tree’s
with a cold crisp blanket of snow
covering everything around me…

I want to dance
in the darkest desert night
under the light of the moon
and stars twilight; naked,
to the most beautiful
love songs written…

But none of these would
fulfill me unless…
I shared them

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.

    Wow Anthea! No matter how good you are in picture taking, this is sheer luck or you’d need a camera with at least 3-4 frames per second to get this.
    This shot is worth of a painting based on it, you may have got the idea already.

    And don’t think I did not notice the title, but I have to “chew” on it.

    Well This is SUPERB – that’s all I can say
    Joie de vivre – it expresses every type of freedom I love to see in a visual – hte sun catching the female’s arched body – a stunner – the male and female energies – so happy and wild – love it!
    absolutely fantastic shot!

  • Suzanne thank you for your wonderful reading and words in response to Joie de Vivre. Yes I loved the exuberance of the male and female energies expressed by the models so free and joyful.
