Get back to passion.

Word of the day: laissez-faire.

I think that from now on, I will include a "word of the day" in my posts. Being that the entire foundation of my writing this blog, and you reading it is words, we might as well learn new ones together. Laissez-faire means non-interference. I hope you feel as enlightened as I do. That dramatic closing sentence made me laugh.

I want to spend my spare time learning to cook. Going grocery shopping at least once a week, spending on average $35.00, has made me want to explore all of the exciting new foods. Lately I feel like I eat like a rabbit...or a mouse more appropriately since my diet includes plenty of cheese. Cooking is a great skill to possess. Like so many things in the world, you can mix, match, and create so many new things when cooking. I will add that to my list of things to do.

More than ever, I want to formally learn dance. Dance is a natural talent I possess, so I only feel it is right to expand the gift I've been given. Come January 24th, I will be in Anaheim, California auditioning to dance professionally for Disney. I will do my best at this audition. Come this February, I will be auditioning, once again for Disney, only this time the resort is not so close. I won't disclose the details as of now, but I would never pass a chance for such an opportunity. This time in my life is a time to get back to passion.

For anyone who thinks that the people of Los Angeles are sharks, I disagree. There are some great people out here. A friend I met the other day has reached out and taken it upon herself to show me that LA is a great place to be. This Sunday she is taking me to a museum. I'm really excited and will definitely be sharing photos with you. I appreciate her reaching out and look forward to the outing. Click on the link to preview where I will be going.

This Sunday's destination.

Now throughout my life, I've always relied on symbolism for entertainment. My new found love of photo sharing, mixed with my old time enjoyment of symbolism have brought me to share this picture with you.



Here is my over-analytical review of this photo. Flowers are known to be beautiful. When we think of flowers, we think of fields; bouquets; of bunches. In the world, we all stand as individuals. We, as a society, have managed to conquer so much as a population. This picture should remind us all that we all hold beauty of our own individually. Just as this flower stands out, beautifully, and alone, we all can stand out and radiate beauty. I hope to never lose myself, no matter where I choose to stand out.

It really is fun to cook. Two people can make the same thing with same ingredients and yet it will taste completely different. Its also nice to know you are still going after your dreams.

Stay passionate, and never stop in the pursuit of your dreams. I salute you sir.

Forget about dancing, focus solely on cooking so when I come visit you you'll be able to make wonderful food. ;-)
