The Pink Moment what it is to me

I've been done with my Sept page since the day after posting the post about what I like and dislike about the page. I just haven't photographed it yet.

I started my Oct page a few days ago, I'm beading very abstractly (for me) and I waffle between liking it and not liking it. It's moving along very quickly because I'm filling with #8 beads which really take up alot of room.

For the last 5 yrs I've traveled up to Ojai to attend the Yoga Crib. My fabulous friend Heidi opens her house to me and allows me to stay with her. So October to me means spending a long weekend doing yoga with some of my favorite yoga teachers, having dedicated time with Heidi and getting the total Ojai experience thru her eyes. It's rare that I have total downtime with no responsibilities and Ojai (and Heidi) give me that experience. No kids, no husband, no doggies, no work. The pink moment is the exact color of my experience there. It glows, it's the color of love, ease, femininity and relaxation.

The reference photos I've used is this one which gave me the idea of having a green foreground. That pic is taken from the top of a small hill called Meditation Mount and you drive up thru an avocado grove.

And this one here which shows you the very pink moment.

Like I said, very abstract as compared to the actual pics.
