{animal messengers : the centipede}

5 Apr

i found this little guy {or gal? … are they asexual?!} in my tiny house the other day… and i think it’s so cool i was able to kind of capture the little legs!!!

i may have been a little freaked out at first, but that’s what you get when you live in the mountains – you have to learn to share your space with all of nature, as you are on her turf.  when i looked up what this creature “represented” {according to some}, i read terms like psychic revelations, ability to survive stress, and this : “it is a wonder that something so small can humble even the largest and most threatening of creatures and people.” which clearly made me feel so good and comforted – cuz i am small, myself – but only physically 😉

i happily scooped him up onto a piece of paper and released him outside… but not before snapping a couple quick fotos.  little bugger is FAST, too!  i could only fire off two shots before he creeped down into a crevasse and scurried away…

apparently some centipedes are poisonous?!  {yikes!} but not here in colorado, from what i’ve been told and read. i am thankful for my little gift of a centipede messenger.  at the time i didn’t think much of it, but after reading about the energy this creature carries, i feel super blessed to have had it cross my path…

…to capture the beautiful things that happen in your life…

and may i add – THANK GOODNESS that i have the capability to take pictures of life’s – shall we say – “precious moments” 😉

{animal energy}

26 Oct

animals {and all of nature} can teach us so much about awareness.  they can teach us about patience, presence, process, and perfect magic.

animals behave from instinct, not from thought.  i find it comforting when an animal crosses my path.  i feel their energy offers us much insight into a greater cosmic awareness.

so, here are a few friends i made recently :

this was the “little caterpillar that could” – i watched him patiently inch across the street just in time before a big truck came rolling through…

this dog followed me all the way into town one day… and right after i took this foto, i looked up and a huge raven flew over my head.  {talk about magic!}

lots of cattle surround these hills and they have so much room to play! Continue reading

hey everyone, happy sunday.  and happy first day of autumn!!

fallbearmountain-9

this is my favey-fav season, and not just because i was born in it 😉  but i do tend to thrive in autumn… i love the colours of course, and the calming down from summer, snuggling and cozying in and slowing down… i just love all that autumn brings along with it.

i’m just relaxing and enjoying my half-caff americano* and was thinking about how many blogs i want to catch up on.

*{that reminds me of this funny thing that happened and i took a foto of it}

my life has shifted so drastically in the month of september, that i just haven’t had time to keep up with the blog like i wanted to.  plus – a huge rebirthing is in order here at foodandfoto.com.  on a personal level, i have grown and “re-birthed” on my own so much, that it’s only fitting the blog shifts along with me.  i’m not exactly sure what that will look like yet, but do stay tuned – some big changes are on the way!

17 May

i’ve decided to start something new – a “feature” on my blog.  i’m going to call it “messages from manhattan” and it will showcase fotos of various sayings or quotes or the like that i noticed and fotographed all over the city during the time i lived there…

here’s one of my all time favs :

New York City

wake up!  and have a great weekend.
