Technology Free Active Days

Lazy days are active days.
I remember playing outside on a bike,  on a swing, and under a large shade tree. This is how we spent our free time before we became so engrossed in technology and in our busy lives. Remember the fun of recreation. It was also good for our health because we were very active outside. We now need to balance our technologically enhanced lives with more active lives that include outdoor activities.

Bewitched Ladies

Ray Charles Mural

Ray Charles Mural
Yesterday Was Ray Charles' Birthday! His likeness was captured beautifully in a graffiti mural. I love art in all forms and the artist,  MTO, is truly talented. He did an incredible job capturing Ray Charles, his joy and his energy.

Talented Soul Singer and Musician Laura Izibor

 Talented Soul Singer and Musician Laura Izibor 
The talented Laura Izibor showed up in my dreams about three weeks ago and I finally did a search for her and I was surprised to find out that this was her. I had already reblogged this picture, on Tumblr, because it was a beautiful composition and artful. She is as beautiful as she is talented.

Black Retro Swimsuit

Marvelous Retro Swimsuit
This black, halter swimsuit is retro and fabulous. The fit is extremely flattering and it appears to have built-in support. The swimsuit is cut low on the thigh like a short. Everything about it is right for the fuller figure.

Live, Work, Create.

I love this sign and I wish that I had this on
my wall to remind me to do this everyday!

Sweets, Sweets, and more Sweets!

These Clever Black Tie Treats are strawberries dipped in white and dark chocolate and then smartly decorated to complete the look.

This picture of reaching hands is a powerful piece of art that reminds me of the inscription on the Statue of Liberty about huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
