Let Everything happen to you

August 20th, 2014 · La Vida

everything
 
 
 
Go to the Limits of Your Longing
“God speaks to each of us as he makes us,
then walks with us silently out of the night.These are the words we dimly hear:You, sent out beyond your recall,
go to the limits of your longing.
Embody me.Flare up like a flame
and make big shadows I can move in.Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
Don’t let yourself lose me.

Nearby is the country they call life.
You will know it by its seriousness.

Give me your hand.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Let it find you

August 20th, 2014 · La Vida

Lost
by David Wagoner, from Collected Poems 1956-1976

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. you must let it find you.

 Inspiring Notes, I’ve taken from the internet, namely J.Peterman critics!

“If you haven’t read it before … you need to.

His book is packed with exceptional storytelling and a very
insightful look into the life of this unusual garment globetrotter.

It all started with an ankle-length duster – a long, simple riding
coat that John Peterman purchased during a trip to Wyoming. “I wore
that coat and people wanted to buy it off my back,” said Peterman.

As he took his initial purchase and turned it into a mail order
company, he found his flair for writing and eye for unusual items was
drawing in people who were looking for something out of the ordinary.

The first full year selling J. Peterman Dusters he sold $580,000
worth that year. That led to the J. Peterman shirt … which was
another great seller … which led to another … and another.

John Peterman would travel the world looking for unusual items that
people normally wouldn’t be able to find, or had romance and stories
built right into them.

And he succeeded.

===========================
The catalog that started a cult …
===========================

As you may know, his catalog, the Owner’s Manual, was a masterpiece

… Using hand-drawn sketches rather than photographs.

… Using long copy to romance the reader, rather than short,
typical, catalog copy.

The J. Peterman Owner’s Manual was the secret (and sacred) tool that
like-minded people would cherish and read out loud amongst their
closest friends on the inside.

It was an odd shape as well … 5 ½ by 10 ½ inches.

The catalog itself became a thing of legend and celebrities quickly
became devoted fans and buyers.”

Travel is about story. Adventure. Heroes. Villains. Secrets. People in between. And most importantly treasure, whatever that means for that trip. This report is that.

Travel is about education. Small local hotels. Off-the-beaten-path restaurants and shopping. Bespoke routes. Real contact information. Real people. Real places. This report is that.

Travel is about maps and photos. Interesting data points. Focused. Not Fancy. Henry Miller said, “One’s destination is never place, but a new way of seeing things.” This report is that.” [Read more →]

Let yourself Be.

August 2nd, 2014 · La Vida

How

Did the rose

Ever open its heart

And give to this world

All its

Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light

Against its

Being,

Otherwise,

We all remain

Too

Frightened.

Let it Rip!

July 29th, 2014 · La Vida

J.Peterman and the writers and artists you employ, you have pushed my imagination to new heights! Thank you!!
WSK3660-PURP-W-LINE1

Dancing with him on the beach.
Away from the man-made lights. Away from the Shangri-La. Away from the rugby team’s Cibi war dance (although he liked that a lot).
 Ocean waves fill your ears. He has you close.
The night sky is alive with celestial lights. You’ve heard about it. You came here to see it. The dancing makes it even easier to see.
The mysterious glow of Magellanic Clouds and silver star clusters capture your eyes as he watches you.
He will say, “I never knew you could dance… like that.”
 
 

frenchflowerdressIsn’t it romantic?  Yes.

The French love their gardens, their roses, their microscopic bits of good weather, their little sandwiches presented on massive Georgian silver trays, and their outdoors among the beautiful, fresh women.

This flower dress, with its unique feminine tie on the back of your waist, is for every garden party, afternoon wedding, quiet coronation, little picnic, éclairs at Coquelin Aîné, and celebrations at Le Baratin.

Because the air is green, because we are still young (meaning alive), because of this floating flower design, the breathable cotton and silk blend fabric, and the feminine crochet trim, you should wear this when you want romance without pretense, without headlines.

ontheroadAnd just got back tonight.  Got a one way Ticket to Dallas to be with Scott. And then we road-tripped it back through Houston, San Antonio, Marfa, El Paso, Santa Fe, Taos and finally Denver. Wheeew.  And Amazing.  Lots to reflect on.  Hoping my creativity has been jumpstarted a bit!  Feeling full of Love.  That is a good fricken feeling!
