Christmas Mini sessions are SOLD OUT!
But.. I've been watching the weather and decided to go ahead with November 18th Family Mini sessions!
I only have 4 spots available!! This is it! I won't have anymore sessions for the rest of the year.
Location is in Willow Park and this cute family photo was taken there tonight.
This is Betty Reid Soskin, she is 97 years old and she is the oldest US Park Service Ranger at the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond, California. She was one of the exceptional women who won the Glamour Woman of the Year Award. What a story this woman has to tell. #glamourwoty #glamourmagazine #whatanight #bettyreidsoskin
Beautiful Anna. Power-woman, goddess, bride, step-mother, wife. 🖤

my flight was delayed 4 hours and @united
only gave me enough food vouchers for a free quarter pounder 🙃
I’ve decided to switch projects. I don’t feel like it’s the right time for the project I have been working on for #nanowrimo
. Every time I work on it, I feel as though everything is being forced.
I’m going back to working on the fantasy podcast.
It will basically be an audiobook told in 20 minute segments.
I’m 25k words into that one and excited to get back to work on it.
I am glad I started on the other story, however. It showed me that I really do want to be working on this podcast and getting it out there. I still will be posting under #nanowrimo2018
because I may just make the podcast into a novel as well (with some bonus goodies of course).
Happy writing friends!

Mehnat ki gathri me kuch umeede band laaya hu,
Taumar jo ghabrate rahe un hoslo ko bulaya hu,
Suna hai Bombai me baarishe bht hoti hai,
Muthi me sapno ke beej liye mai bhi yaha aaya hu.
Writing is a deeply personal process. With each word that gets secured in place, your thoughts, ideas, and perspectives become exposed to the world. While it is liberating, it also feels like part of yourself suddenly exists outside of your body, where it’s no longer protected from ridicule and judgement.
I recently came across a social media post with very familiar words. I read them carefully and my stomach twisted in knots as I realized they were mine. Further exploring this person's account, I discovered that several of the posts contained my original writing, which this person was claiming as their own to thousands of followers. It didn’t take long to find the original authors of all the posts, bringing to light that the entire account had been plagiarized.
Plagiarism is theft. While it may seem like just a caption, there is so much more than meets the eye. It’s flattering to have your work appreciated and shared by others, but before using another persons’s words, please ask permission and give credit where it is due. No matter how talented you perceive yourself to be, I guarantee that if you put your mind to it, you too have something interesting and beautiful to say. To all the writers, photographers, artists, and innovators out there, keep on creating with fervent originality. I appreciate you.

Tied the knot in a beautiful garden ceremony (with just myself, the gorgeous Karen Seitter @theseitterwoodhouse
and the reception clerk baring witness to their love)...oh, and the fine young man featured in the middle ~ who as we were signing and they were sipping champagne said he would like to give a speech. He toasted his father and new beautiful step-mother, wishing them a lifetime of love and happiness and telling them how happy he was for them to have found each other 💕. What a kid.
Big love Mr & Mrs V.

Blessed am I to work with such gorgeous and crazy-talented women ✨😘.
for LFAFE...different inking, music is "Double Dare" by Bauhaus (I like them a lot.) The first clip is the prototype for that damned Masat, the ancient Ipirian sea monster that is a constant reminder that Sky Empire isn't as absolute in it's power as the Sky dynasty might like to believe. Second is of Doctor Gishkim holding his daughter at the start of the empire's fall. Last is the failed #inkwash
of Empress Lil and Dagan's father. No matter how many times I tried to draw/ink her something went wrong. Not that I'm superstitious or anything... (Wrong order eh...you know what I mean 😑)
Recently when re-reading #womenwhorunwiththewolves
I got reminded of "descansos- the moments which mark all the small deaths in a woman's life
So, I took a pen and paper and did my own timeline of descansos from ideas, projects, places, people, friendships, relationships, jobs, identity, self-lovr and so much more
What it thought me is the importance of grieving those moments which have shaped our present and using that grief as a container
🍂through which we can release what no longer serves us
🍂through which we can celebrate our past, people and experiences which shaped it and have informed the present we are living right now
🍂a container for meeting our most honest selves
It can be a hard container to carry. Sometimes, depending on the loss it can be a container we always have by our side but when we stop and honor the deaths in our life we begin to understand the amazing, beautiful, overflowing births of life in our life
Try it for yourself, turn to page 396 in the above mentioned book and make your own timeline. Would love to hear how it went for you. .

was founded by a friendship forged in wine, coffee, sarcasm and GIFs, we share a wine review every #thirstythursday
. Give BODDHI a follow and don’t miss out on some awesome wines just in time for the holidays. Here is this week’s 🍷 review:
”Flux, Acha and Collide are like my 3-man wolf-pack. You know you’re in for a treat when you drink any of @markheroldwines
, but little did I know that treat was going to be so freakin’ delicious as this 2014 Flux Lake County Syrah. It’s dark, full-bodied and intense. The cork (complete with crystallized sediment) can literally tint your hands a deep purple. Heavy cherry on the nose, oaky-tannins and a dry finish make this wine one of my new favs.”
One of your friends might make it to to the Supreme Court as a judge. #payperfault

These past two months Ive been feeling gloomy so much so I stopped writing & dyed my hair dark to match my mood. Why do I need to talk about cancer, having a child with a chronic disease, advocate for a cure & fundraising for both for all kinds of nonprofits benefiting both...I just wanted to be light & easy & skip through life like some people do. But maybe I was never meant to be that person....maybe I was meant to keep talking & writing about things that make people cry, connect or just look at things in a different light. Maybe by writing about these things, I am light & easy because I am helping others with my own experiences❤💙❤ #whenigrowup #iwanttochangetheworld #lifelonglearner #isthismymidlifecrisis #needahaircoloristasap #writerforlife #storyteller #whattheworldneedsnow #islovesweetlove
Three colors that remind me of my WIP. Yellow, blue, purple.
No explanation allowed! Have a good evening everyone.
That feeling you get when you're paying bills and forget that your FIFTH paycheck--that mid-month bonus 💰-- just landed in your account for simply getting people healthy hair products to solve their hair issues! 💆🙆. You know why I tell you this? Because I know I'm not the only one wanting/needing more money. I also know for sure that if I can do this, you can too. 🤗
You may or may not be aware, but you CAN make extra money from home, even part time. I do, and I'd be happy to share how, just message me. 📩
Meet Mayor Candy 🍬
(More info about him soon...)
