It's My Life.

Pretty much sums it up. Figuratively, anyway.

Dedicated to all the men in my life...

The Aviator

My computer is between two floor-to-ceiling windows. I never open the blinds. Mostly because I live my life in the dark hours. Right now though, it's that moment in the morning when the sun is moments from rising. It's dim outside, but the blackness of night has faded away leaving the world with that lovely blue tint. It's like looking through a photo filter. Nothing stirs in my world except for me and the chorus of birds outside that have just begun their morning song.

A few days ago I looked outside and noticed my dog was barking at the ground awkwardly. Just as I opened the door, to my horror, she grabbed the object of her interest in her teeth and flung it across the yard. A bird. It screamed. I screamed. We screamed. I raced over and shooed Violet into the house. I looked down at the frightened little aviator and my heart broke, because I knew...it was going to die. I scooped the little creature up into my hands and carried it out the gate, setting it beneath a tree where my dogs could no longer terrorize it. It saddened me that the bird was probably going to die there in the Texas heat, but I couldn't bear the thought of killing it myself. So I decided that nature would take it's course. I was comfortable with that.

Moments later, my friend Natalie arrives at my house. We chat and look stuff up online for a bit. She tries on some of my clothes for a party. After about an hour, she departs and I jump in the shower to ready myself for the party mentioned above.

I'm feelin' good and lookin' fine when Brooke and Tony arrive to pick me up for a night on the town. As we walk out to my driveway I see the little bird again. Only this time, it's a flattened smear on my driveway. Apparently, Natalie ran over it when she left my house.

I was sad, but also a bit relieved. At least it went quickly and did not have to suffer.

Natalie doesn't know.

Punk Sexy

Two months ago when I decided to get off my ass and take modeling "seriously", I had no idea if anyone would take notice. My worries quickly turned to dust as the offers started pouring in from photographers all over America. I'm not really into running myself all over the map, which is cool because I have gotten the opportunity to work with some respected, world-class photographers right here in Texas!

This past weekend I was lucky enough to be the featured model for the Houston Glamour Club run by kickass photographers BobbyG and Lee of FotoFusion. I had an amazing and educational experience working with the group and am considering participating in future meetups as...a Photographer!

That's right kids. I've picked up a lot of information being in front of the camera and I think I'd like to start seeing what it's like on the other side. Lord knows modeling can't go on forever. But I'm not sad, I'm excited that I may have figured out what I want to be when I grow up!
So, until next time...please enjoy these photos from the shoot.

*click on a photo and it gets all big. Magical, isn't it?*
