What a Christmas from family and more family.. you.

Thanks so much everyone, for supporting my uploads.. I am so excited and earlier emailed the woman who wanted my work in her shop.…

To top this off I came to my door and found a lovely book by a fav authour and twas given to me by Michelle, my brothers partner and him. Goodness, I was missing them this morning and try not to dwell on ‘I don’t have’ (family close) but for some reason it was heavy on my heart today. I cried, indeed I did and wrote them my thanks. I also received from same family, MICHELE …. who is on RB but her focus is in the managing and overseeing large websites..EMAGINE What a generous woman and in this last trip I told my brother again and again, how much I love her and both of them as Soulmates of which I am sure they are.

Michelle purchased.. and really for me t

LINAJI’S HOMEPAGE

Yes I used flash a bit to send the eye to the Galleries, and I feel it works to provide the continuity I desire for my series work and my work in places like Kauai and my Sailing Race Work to be seen correctly

This week I will be uploading alot of Kauai shots as I will be asking my client to choose from the choices in my Kauai Gallery
or as she was interested in my sailing work, The Sailing Gallery

Please excuse the amount of uploads as I so love your comments but I know it can be irritating to see so much at once, I need to finish this for my client .

Funny, I have a website but it

This month Solo is recognizing some of the wonderful galleries created by it’s own members.

Somba Galleries is for me quite special to visit as I am always amazed with my Co-Creators over at HomePage and how each of us has a way of seeing the world through ART.

Right now the gallery highlighted is ArtLacoque – Language of Hands

Ruth has such an incredible spirit towards other artists as her journey with Bernards work continues to amaze all of us. Take a trip to see an incredible collection and interpretation of art that will give your eyes and heart a most satisfying respite and view into our community of artistic talent here at Red Bubble.

Got some positive signals...

I don’t always talk about my private sales, but when something special happens
I feel to share.
First I want you to know I will be on Sunday all morning.. so I can see what you have been doing and do a BUBBLE DAY!!!!
.
I have a client that bought a 30 × 40 Canvas of a boat image yesterday, It is not a usual race image it is infact a boat he no longer owns.
He told me this image meant so much to him as if I knew it was his last few races and this he sold this boat White Dove and bought a much smaller boat recently.
The image is this one: Masts Away

I feel such appreciation: not only does he love this image, I am blessed with a printer that is so exquisite I never have to worry about the final product.
But it does not end here,,, this is what made me feel like sharing, his wife, (this is the s

Breaking the Rainbow.

Waking up to a heavy work week but I kinda look forward to it!!
A big dinner for the Commodores and the change of guard at the club.
.
I want to say also that Rosa Cobos
gifted me with an amazing work of art and also for me it is more the understanding of what lay so profoundly in Rosa’s heart. Rainbow Set Free blows my mind. You see I am an abstract artist and solid conceptual art seems to ‘fly’ right by me for now. I am amazed at all of you who paint the pictures of concept through images…
Please take a view at her works, and besides her kind words regarding me, note the rest of her observations on life and living, I just found this absolutely breathtaking and profound.

Have a wonderful week, Of course I will be checking in but very little action. hehehe

What's Going On? ...Over- whelment, that's what.

I want you all to know something from my past today. I was a little girl for about 50 years of my life. that was just a few years ago then a transformation of Love happened.
I found parts of me I thought missing.
Then here came this world of RB and you.
.
This past week seems surreal to me. I have had 2 poems written about my work,
the amazing poet and photographer rj heller aka Rick transported me to the moments on the ship and the life of a sailor. I felt more for my own work through his eyes reading then understanding more the sailor mind, what it FEELS like to sail and be part of the machine that takes one to wherever one is going. Thank you so much Rick.
Here is the first stanza of REACH

ropes squeal with excitement, shroud bends, twists
white sails, starched hard and lean, grimace.

holy COSOMS! OCTOBER 2010…

This is one of my most recent layout creations that I simply loved doing and I discovered a few artists I have not know about before so congrats to all of them!

I am going to be on RB very sporadic this next few weeks as I have some work that requires me to focus so I must debubblize and that for me is tough.

Today I willl be on to comment and ohhh and ahhhhhh!!
.
I had a most wonderful experience I want to share with meeting and spending the day with Elizabeth Bravo a few weeks ago in San Francisco. In going through some things I kept this kinda on the low. Elizabeth is one amazing woman, she is respectful and loving in regards to ones feelings and requests and she brightens up ones day with interest and abandon in conversation and photography.
Her signature digita

Blown Away

Ok.. I am in such a better space today, I have gone to the chiro, got massaged, bubbled, and last night and today paid attention to how much I love to do my work at ‘work’ and as an artist.
.
I posted A Day At the Beach and just sold 4 cards and one poster.. my first!
I have to say it does look good as a poster and so I am going back into my work and see what I should turn on as a poster. I do not know who bought these but I am most appreciative of their support. I hope they love this work of art.
.
I think when I wake up and feel good and find ways to give myself a break from whatever went off yesterday and start fresh, I have more of a chance for success.

The Universe listens and it is given, all’s I have to do is get outta the way and have FUN!

Just looking at perhaps why one day works and…

Much To Do about Everything

Slowly I clean like a spring fling, and get behind because I am working alot. But. Work is good. So here I am, right where I am……

Today I was blessed with a layout I have been trying to get published for well close to a year. Tendrils of green growth and lackadaisical peas that smile. This feels close to how my soul works..

I remember...

When this movie came out….
and this music dug deep…

The last scene of her drowning.. I was on the floor of my living room.. pounding my fist… sobbing.. sobbing.. how could this ever be?

and Oh this music …

Of course I bought 3 songs in itunes on this michael nyman

Now I feel The Pain...

I heard this song and I felt such a surge of longing and also I felt love.…

[Video]

Then I wrote this in response to this feeling I got listening to this amazing music.
.
Here; Feel Me

you know my tears are still fresh..
as you sleep “here feel the hole”?
now passes the years of wondering why
you are the other part of soul

signs follow now as I remain in solitude
but my feelings never lie
and with them I feel the pain of wondering
about the you of I.

from the sinking weight of open tears
our lovers open veins
missing parts this grand design
a zelots missing chains

tis common to feel hearts open wounds
will someday find a way
out of loneliness and discontent
this paradox of pain

signs follow now as I remain in solitude
but my feelings never lie
and with them I feel the pain of wondering
about the you of

Quickie... heheheh

OUt all day and just want to thank those leaving music.. I am so chuffed.. I want more!! today I am determined to finish cleaning my office/living room and am listening to music now through my new speakers I got at a place someone here turned me onto.. called

Change yourself in the way you want everyone else to change

Write a love letter to your evil twin during a lunar eclipse
Fool the tricky red beasts guarding the Wheels of Time

Unusual Titles

Due to the limit in tags.. and I am not upset however, Daisy came up with a way to add more search options.. in the title
here is her journal
My titles now on will hold this:
my name
colors
textures if any
My tags will hold 10 categories on the subject matter as I feel that is enough
I do like to add color finds however. When I first came to RB as a buyer
not knowing much I searched by color!! I remember
and my name as I was givin a little coaching last night needs to be a tag. I did not know this.
Ok..

Gift of a Icon...

I wanted to make it official and Thank the Talented Holly who has taken on an amazing project here at RB.
this is my portrait done by Holly I am now using for my icon

In her own words

I intended that linaji would be the last portrait in the first anniversary project, but of course, there are more friends we met and many more to do

I love this story, Holly got to RB and became more connected to others that inspire her.

Holly I did crop this a bit and made it more like I see me, but I do love your wrork and feel so honored to be part of your project!! xoxox

I no longer worry bout how late I am in giving back a reply, but I do want you to know I love to reply. I always take it as an opportunity to connect with you and to go and see what is up in your neck of the woods and sometimes when I reply now on a comment I did not see that may even be over a month old, I have come to treasure those times because it is as if I needed to see that comment more on the day of discovery later on than on the days following the initial upload.

Daddy came around every once in awhile
But momma, she was there all the time
And summertime in Compton
Was not like TV
But we were right there
Where we needed to be
And the Thurmond boys
On peach street
With only their dad
So proud of themselves
And that old Pontiac they had
And miss brooks her bible
And her three little boys
At the double rock
Baptist church
Makin’ a joyful noise

Well there’s more than
One way home
Ain’t no right way
Ain’t no wrong
And whatever road you
Might be on
You find your own way
‘Cause there’s more than

CONGRATS TO ALL THE AMAZING ARTISTS

Speaking of Artists.. you all really helped me out yesterday, your comments on my journal were so loving and uplifting. I have read them over a few times and appreciate the knowledge and understanding my fellow Co-Creators have when dealing with the negatives in life.

Just an FYI on an art piece that I created while in this mood of feeling uneasy around people that did not feel so honest. I spent the morning working on a piece called
BLOOD RED MOON
The poem and the work itself was cathartic in that I poured myself sometimes in tears into the creation of both. This journal will explain .…

UNSETTLING

Yesterday was a tough day for me. I had an incident at work that really made it hard for me to sleep and then with no sleep eveything else feels so out of place. Distorted and a bit blown up.
I was doing my WED thing for the racers at the club. Normally I don’t stay late, I cook and leave but this day the person who helps me was on vacation so I stayed though to the evening. I had a wonderful boy help me out of collage and he and I as I seem to do with yourng people, got along with loads of conversation ranging from sailing to psychology, his major in college.
I was having fun. Than he wanted to see my art work so I took him to see it and was gone for a small portion of time. I left my cash box out and did not think to take it. When I returned all these people were in the space w…

A Meditation and Psychotherapy Story

Two friends met at a cafe one day and began to talk over tea. They told each other of the dissatisfaction in their lives, how life was not what either had expected, how despite their best efforts, they seldom woke up happy in the morning, how they did not want to feel this way for the rest of their lives.
One said things were so bad he was thinking about going to see a psychotherapist; the other said things were so bad he was thinking of taking up meditation; perhaps he’d even enter monastic life. They wished each other well and did not see one another for 10 years.
Then they happened to meet each other again in the same cafe, and once again they sat down over tea. The one asked the other, “So, how are you? What have you been doing?”
The first said, “Well, I did go into therapy. I discovere…

What Works AND ... put a Mustache on it!

I feel life from all angles today. Open up RB and see the beauty to behold of ones fellow Artists. Hear a soothing voice that says; not to worry for the circle of creativity is best allowed to slump. It is a sign of the rise again, my friend said. (ahh as I feel relief). Than a niece calls. And when I sounded worried about something she said, (something that I normally never do) she calms me by saying in a beautiful voice, “Auntie L, all is well I swear”.…

I thought my day could not get any better when I came up for air after beginning a huge over hall of my living space. Which as you all know rearranging can feel incredible in and of itself.
I Open RB.. am sweating slightly and hunger begins… I see a bubble mail from my dearest friend, mentor and fellow traveler on this never endi

A Video That Brings Me The Answers I Already KNow.

OMG… I have been waiting for this lovely message. I know for some this will not resonate, but for others that desire an answer to why why why this oil spill, I come to my teachings in the Law of Attraction and the fact that there is no death.…

The important parts for me in this message is thinking my happiness and my well being relies on ‘them’ or the powers that be.
Also I feel these amazing mammals have a way of communicating telepathically, I know this as when I lived in Alaska and kayaked with the whales, I heard them talk to me and I felt so blessed to be part of creation. I never believed this until it happened.
I was in tears with this as it feels and resonates to the place I want my attention to focus on. When I focus on the hopelessness, I don’t feel very good.

Can I get a HALLELUJAH????!!!

I FEEL BLESSED… I cried for my inner teen this morning, held her and felt her pain.…

So interesting to remember my big fat black hole that seemed only relieved by using substances. And that my friends is the only reason I used, I felt betta.

….. Then as I was mopping my kitchen floor cause last night I was too tired after working 12 straight hours to finish cleaning, I cried like a baby, and sobbed and felt the pain and the longing to have my youth back with this new found love I have for me given to that messed up girl.

“Is it too late?” I said to me, “to be that girl again and feel this love I now have found?”

I squeezed the tears from my eyes by closing them and holding my mop in the middle of the kitchen I saw me then, I saw me as I feel now whole and happy. We and she took each othe

TRY AGAIN: WISDOM AND A PUNCH LINE

One day a good man took a gift…

Music poured from his tears as

He realized he had done a good thing.

What he did not know at that moment

of receiving

were the other’s agenda notes buried

deep inside.

No,

At that moment

He felt like heaven had been gifted him

He Reveled in his good fortune.

His future looked bright.
.

_Do you think the moral of this story is not to

accept gifts and be forewarned that inside each good

Graceful gesture the possibility of evil lay?_

.

How unfair it would be to live by this fear:

When good came your way and you felt

Its various forms of bliss, stop and then say No,

the possibility of evil may proceed, thus stifling that moment of joy

.
This man chose to feel and believe that all things are

Possible to ‘them that believe’

Belief is just a thought that is thought

From Esther and Me


WHY?
by EstherJohnson

Below a poem inspired from Esther’s work, by Linaji

Do we forget who in our land we decimated before us? Now at the hands of hell
we reap what blood we sewed on our occupied territories..
We are not without sin.

  • Keep Forgetting…*

Here I am made up of water and land
my bones creak a bit
but that is what happens when I keep draining
my self-respect away,

I stand naked in tears of my own doing
and ground my fears into China

I don’t know what to do as I am being
raped and pillaged
My connection to ‘Her’ feels fragile

But she is stronger than me,
She will cradle me as I fall pray to
easy living with disregard for my true nature

Who are ‘they’?
But me
if I do nothing
to ask this to stop.
Who am I fooling?
Who am I hurting?
I lay here in the sludge and the muck and say
“Why are you no

more solutions and yes.. the conspiracy

First a Quote by Dr. Martin Luther King:
Martin Luther King Jr. alluded to in his Nobel speech:…

“I refuse to accept the idea that man is mere flotsam and jetsam in the river of life, unable to influence the unfolding events which surround him. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.”

here is the theory:
(not a theory to me, it is the same logic we go to war for companies like Halliburton so they can destroy, clean up., occupy, and keep building in places they are in cahoots with in the first place)
here is the article I think is full of logic

here is another solution:
[Video]

FYI:
No joke: Goldman Sachs shorted Gulf of Mexico

It turns out that Goldman

solutions not being used

here are some solutions in helping with the oil spill
why are they not being used?

and

and

they are still using horrible chemicals

I do believe once again as the EPA blocks these solutions that there is a
conspiracy to deplete the spirit of the US for reasons that are heavy in my heart.
I won’t focus on this.
Today I am writing and calling the Gulf Coast area and asking why they are not
getting the attention of the White House, I have also written the White House and i am calling them in reference to these solutions

Sometimes I just do not really get it… the horror of mankind…

Looks like the Universe LIstens...

I am not home and I can access RB. (I am at a friends house doing back taxes and just got a gargantuan refund from 2008!)…

Looks like the Universe Listens. I have been asking that I find a way to get things done, to write again and complete my website. I have been feeling better, but was so bummed when each and every time I was on my computer in this last week and tried to access RB, NO GO .
What to do? My IP will be hearing an earful tomorrow but in the meantime since last I was on RB I have been offered a freelance position doing some design work and photoshop work. The company who I am working for is my web design group so I foresee the completion of my website.
Work at the Club?
I served 130 people last night and it was so successful that I feel my appreciation for my job as well

Freaked Out!

Yesterday as I tried to get on to see the results and be part of the Congrat crew for the winners of this months SoJie Awards

I found I could not access RB at all.. Not yesterday.. nor night nor late night!!m OMg
wow that was a trip and now that I am working today and finally have access I will have to catch up later this week on not only this wonderful event, but on all you’s goodies.
.
I hope you had a wonderful yesterday and today too!!
Yikes!

Just got through reading an exquisite writing and viewing incredible art from our John Fish

Friends on the Bubble...

I never tire of loving you all. I guess when I came to RB my bubble was finally burst and I leaned how to love coming and going.
I feel like this place has taught me to feel the amazment of friendship. Don’t have to be a daily thing, a weekly thing or even a monthly thing.. but when I reconnect to my buddies,,, Oh it feels like heaven.…

Here is one of them… She found the love of her life on RB and she and he are really leading a magical existence with pancakes for breakfast and hot passionate love in the afternoon..(ok.. I don’t know if that is true or not but I image it to be so..teeheee)

STORY TIME ROMANCE ... a new conversation in Peach

a story about changing my story:
I have felt this way and with enough moments behind me and ahead
I do believe my lover is here and now.
I feel him breathing down my neck…
hey.. stop that! teeheee..…

To you sweetheart:

I was just thinking:

I felt pretty rotten when I felt like a bad apple or at least I felt like I attracted alot of
bad apples.

Now?

I feel like a peach.

The juice is sweeter but I remember how hard it was to forget I wasn’t an apple anymore.

Appledome felt familiar yes,
and to tell you the truth, as I have told so many of my girlfriends recently;
I think I reveled in knowing just what was gonna happen in the end.
No, not the kind of relishing in your face reveling, but the kind that allowed me to feel like;
there was no chances left, that the world was the way the world was

Perpepual War

I got home from a photo shoot today…went out at 6:30 am.. feel pretty exhausted cause I worked for a straight 12 hours as I normally do on Fridays.
.
Maybe this is a time (after doing creative endeavors and then feeling exhausted) when I feel a bit political and am drawn toward watching a documentaries, this time round; from the year 2007 called The American Ruling Class . Which as the movie progresses round I hear a line and remember something and do an internet mini research.
Good Ole’ George Orwell 1984 and his notion of Perpetual War

Got me to surf more and I came upon this article I like recently written by David A Love: A State of Perpetual War

Then I found another completely interesting article on a site I like called Soda Head; and the article is called: On

Don’t we all? I could not seem to post him as a full on work but I loved him no less.

He is here with me today to witness my deep appreciation for the bounty that has happened in the last 3 weeks.
Wow and such bounty it is. This is Lips, say hello Lips, “hello and I am beautiful” …
Oh Wow I so agree!! Does’nt he look like he is singing that line out loud? Just how beautiful he is indeed!

Too Personal Now... But Wow!

FYI… I just went through something I have been putting off for over 1.5 years. Even for me it is too personal to talk about right now but let me say this. My biggest fears are only in my head. When I stepped into the problem with my heart and mind willing to listen for answers.. my god you guys.. I feel like a lead weight of a gazillion lbs. is lifted and I am more productive than I have ever been.
.
I am constantly amazed at how important it is to allow for all that I am hearing and desiring to come into action in what ever form it takes to get me going!! lolol.
And do you know how the action began? I was up against the wall as it were; again it is my head/mind wall that put me there. I felt I had no other choice but to do and act NOW, as I had been in, well lets use the word ‘den…

Time Out...

Afterall, I don’t mind doing a little garage sale outside my own back door, but going to a local swap meet??? I had my reservations, as I had never experienced this before.…

OMG… I had so much fun! I was next to a man who bought all my Ganesh’s stuffies (stuffed anmimals) that I did not know if I would ever sell but bought them in India cause they are so dang cute.

New Ideas born on RB

There has been a soaring in my heart and a rattle in my hum….

Inside Solo, by F.A. Moore has come out with an incredible idea for those of us that have a duo nature in art and passion… This is new to the magazine world and could very well affect how magazines are sold.
It is a brilliant idea and I thank F.A. Moore for welcome innovation and execution in her layout and content work. All birthed here at RB!!! Kuddos Frannie I am flying high!

She is like me kiddo.. I adore her.

Scarlett Moon was one of the first people I met here on the bubble two years ago. She is lots and lots younger than me.. but what is it about this generation???? they screw up and do the feeling things I did back at that age (boys, drinking, boys, party,, boys) and then 2 years later.. they are amazing artists and may I kinda quote her… if she don’t mind.. she said to me… and I am paraphrasing:
‘Oh I have left all that teen angst behind and now am focused on my art and my own life.’
How the…
I see this everywhere around me. So many of the young people I meet seem to allow life to work for them.. so much sooner. It took me till last week!! lolol Just kidding, but a very long time.
I love to see the evolution of my life and dare I say of our species..forgive me Moon
aka Rebecca, from England,…

I said twice and twice it is...

first: MUSIC

Then…… Relax and take up whatever mode equals that of putting ones feet up and enjoying their fav bevie…

FOR YOU?
maybe a ‘tini’ of some sort?
.
Then… Smile and if you have not dropped into say hello and let me know what you like about my work or what is up with YOURS.S…. well.. COME BY!!

Tis me last official day of Gallery Fun.. and I can’t believe I am off today!

Come to Linaji’s Solo Exhibition

“I Can’t wait.. I can’t wait”..

I do so hope I made this kinda fun as I am a bit dingy today.. So much thanks..

The widescreen images are a challenge. We need high res pieces and the images have to be able to stretch to the wide screen application…
So I worked for a few hours on this one.
This felt right and I am in awe of these dynamic artists, such a pleasure to create this layout.
Some new ones that you may enjoy adding to your watchlist.. all of them are on mine!

Wow look what happens with a little focus!! lolol xoxo

New HP.. happy dance

Feb 27th 2010 RED BUBBLE HOME PAGE FEAURE

Just saw that the Feb 25th Home Page was part of my investigating all the newbie art here at HP… emphasis on the new Artist that have joined in 2010…

Here is my original HP which I really love but for some reason images had to be swapped out. Be aware that some portraits cannot be featured because of the new format. This is not true for all but as we progress over at the HP we will come to know what works.. and use the images that work!!

SOME AMAZING NEW ARTISTS … and a couple from 2009 and 1 b4


We are all getting used to this new system. I am still having a ball discovering new artists..
and Promoting all the ones who have been here forever!!! Yahhhh!!!
.
Have a lovely evening.

Red Bubble Does It Again...

The last two weeks I have been struggling. No I won’t go into the reasons why as to tell you the truth the reasons are not clear. I know the symptoms however, I close off phones and isolate, I shut down I can hardly come here to comment and to answer you in anyway seems impossible. I had one good day when i got outside myself and thanked everyone here for my two years at RB. Oh my goodness that felt so good.
Day before yesterday I said …"Ok Universe, I have just about had it with all of this crap and I need your help! It seemed like the next minuet I got an email from a client who needed some help. Getting out of self and into action surely is a ‘cure’ for what ails this woman.…

I woke up to more kindness and what seemed like hands held out to me; scuffed knee on the ground taking a pat

HOME PAGE ... A SPECIAL PART OF THIS CELEBRATION!

Wow talk about Synchronicity! Over at the HomePage forum we got to choose a Home Page and include one of our own Pieces as part of the layout……

Wow like christmas ..
I enjoyed choosing this layout and called it:

“Dimensions of LIfe, a Full Rich Story” …. (thanks Red for giving me part of the title!)

What artistry to surround my work with as I had such an incredible experience choosing these wondrous images! Part of my joy in being part of this experience is finding out new artists and finding old gems I have always loved and try to get them on the homepage. So much Talent here… kinda boggles the mind… my watchlist is out of control!
.
Thank you all who are a part of my Journal of Appreciation as I am enjoying going to each of you and remembering when we met and including some of what you

Interesting Side Note.

Last night I posted my first total story of me and my husband’s life and his very untimely death in India. Meditation . In two days it will be ‘our day’ or the day that we got married.
I have another story I have not revised yet but plan to include in my book, about how I found RB and my Art out of a deep depression back in 2008.…

What I find interesting as I posted late last night was the fact that the day I allowed a voice to tell me to; instead of deleting RB mailers from my email (I had looked into RB for art on my walls in the office of which business I no longer had due to a disagreement with a good friend who became my partner and later sued me for all of the business that I let it go of as she had more invested than I did) to take a deeper look at what the site was all about.

Back In Business...

My Camera has been gone since November..
Here is the story.
I bought it on line and I went out shooting in the bay all last summer.. my last shoot I was in a very small boat and the water got on my camera..
Ok.. then the motor for the Auto Focus went out..
OK I thought… I bought extended warranty
Called the warranty company.
Out of business.. I paid 200 for the extended warranty.
Ok. mad
Called the on line camera company out of New Jersey.. well.. on and on it went till I resolved to send my camera to Florida.. where I had to pay 1/2 the repair bill
OK.. send they say:
“No prob miss.. we will have it back to you before Christmas”..
Send camera
CAmera back 2nd week of Feb.
Moral to the Story:
I will only buy camera’s locally and at a camera business that has been in business forever!
Also getting a c…

Dear Mr. President

I just wrote this to the White House….
Will they come get me cause I mentioned Aliens?…

Dear Mr. President:

Here is my message.. we dont’ believe you as you support a system based on fear and you lie to yourself if you think you are separate from us .. all the speeches in the world can’t cover up the banking coop (corporate)..it is such an obvious horrible happening.. all of you sans a few good senators know how this government is going/has gone. ugly.
But you know what? We will learn that freedom does not reside in YOU>> it is in the expansion of all that we are becoming.
As are you.
I am tired of thinking I can fight against. If you have talked with the aliens they will tell you it is your tyranny that will/are creating more evolved Beings.. your shackles will show us what we are capabl

New Habit... I longed for sleep

This Law of Attraction work sometimes results in me finally listening to a voice that has suggested something for almost 2 years. Tee hee.. Why did it take so long to hear? Cause for the last two years my vibration has not been in a place to receive all that I desire. I fine tune my vibes by paying attention to how I ‘feel’ and when I realize it is up to me to choose my thoughts so that I can feel better, the rest follows, abundance appears, security seems to prevail, health improves and speaking of health:
I have several desires concerning my health and well being and one of them is to get a real good nights sleep. I have heard many times that having a television on or a computer on in the same room as one is sleeping in is well.. here is some info NOT GOOD FOR FULL ON SLEEP. I have t…

From Dune: Fear, The Mind Killer

My Brother Paul Reynolds got this from a friend in the email who was kinda swayed by this letter. It had his friend thinking life was lacking these days and perhaps we should be forewarned. Here is the letter to my brothers friend and Pauls answer to his friend what he thought of the letter and then what his friend said back to him .…

The email from (named changed) Ivan: btw.. just skim through this piece as you get the picture of what this person is sending out to many people and their friends are sending

APPRECIATION TO MY FELLOW ARTISTS

I won’t make this long… here is the story in the last 1/2 hour
.
I worked all day on several shots for a client. I knew he would like this shot
HOMEWARD BOUND

but not the surreal effect I gave it.
So I did something I have never really done and created a new sky and took out the sun
the problem was the refection in the water screamed.. WAIT I NEED A SUN!!
So I posted without a sun and the gracious and lovely Olga Van Dijk said.. Hey were is the sun?? lolol.. actually she was so sweet and cool I am exaggerating.
Anyway I put the sun in and she also advised me to make some shadow adjustments and the finished product was this:
SMOKIN J TO GLORY

THE MORAL TO THIS STORY?
He chose this piece for framing and also told me he was going to make tee’s for his crew.
Great!
And he said .. “you know Linaji, one…

I so ... heART you guys..

I have so much to do today..but I have read everyones comments on my stuff and for some reason I feel like crying I am so happy.. don’t know why and yes.. I am a bit on the side of ‘crying happy tears is fun’ genre.. teehe.. I am working on my web site and trying to find a bio thing.. to give the web creators..
I don’t wanna say.;..
Ohhh LInaji has been this or that..
like someone elese is saying these things..
What do you think?
Do you like it when a person on a website or here talks like someone else is saying this is what you are all about?
I don’t know why I feel so negative about that approach.. is that a way to look more professional?
any way.. your thoughts always give me juice to create a passage to my own answers…
we are Co Creators here and I again want to tell you I love you..
and Thank…

PART 2 SPLENDIFORIOUS LIFE OF LIVING SOLO

I have taken some time this afternoon to read though the amazing Ezing Inside Solo created and run by F.A.Moore .
Incredible what Fran has done since I have known her this past year.
It feels like Sunday and the New York Times.. Goodness the writing is stimulating, informative and the layout past excellent. It helps of course to have such fabulous artists like Mark Wellman who was selected to give a “Solo Exhibition” this week from her RB group Solo Exhibition where it all begins and a place to start if you have a desire to keep tabs on great fellow artists and garner an opportunity to show or be published!!…

What I want to talk about here is the opportunity one can take advantage of by using this fabulous spread to market themselves to Gallery owners and Magazines you may want to send you
