Sometimes I’m energetic, full of color and life, feeling crazy…

Other days I want to lay still, relax, read a book and be lazy.

I learned how to do these orbs in Photoshop via Leya (HERE) and I just can’t get over how beautiful her orbs are (Ha-ha that sounds funny). Anyway, I’ve seen several other bloggers doing the same, and all of the results are just stunning.

I don’t know if it’s just my current mood or what, but the orbs I tried with flowers weren’t doing it for me. So… I made one using an image of street art that I had. The second one (lazy) is basically the orb original, and I think it looks more soothing and laid back.

The first one (crazy) is the result of an effect in Smartphoto Editor. I love that it’s “almost” like stained glass, but it’s not. It looks like it would break if you dropped it. When looking at it I felt myself feeling lighter, which made me think of energy.

I mentioned before that when I set an agenda for myself, I tend to get rebellious. I’ve been wanting to write the next part of my short story, but I haven’t had it in me. I thought the orbs might be a good way to get me out of my writing rut. We’ll see tomorrow.

That’s about all. I hope you like my moody orbs. A big thank you to Leya for showing us how to make these!

Until later,

Peace & Love!

It’s a Magical Day

Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny. C. S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe


Magical is my mood for tomorrow. I’ve already decided that.

I caught a few minutes of a show my mom was watching… and a teacher was telling his student that her imagination was magical. I think I must have seen the best part of the program. I realized that I’ve been leaning too far toward the serious side—so I’m going to let my imagination run wild.

I also realized something. Since I came to believe, my imagination has grown tremendously. Sometimes I see my circumstances in the shape of a cartoon. I’m serious! Little animated analogies run through my head, and I’m hoping to use that as a tool in my writing soon.
