This is beautiful.
 
Created by mixed media artist Anila Quayyum Agha, this elaborately carved cube with an embedded light source projects a dazzling pattern of shadows onto the surrounding gallery walls. Titled Intersections, the installation is made from large panels of laser-cut wood meant to emulate the geometrical patters found in Islamic sacred spaces.

I adore this shot by +Kalebra Kelby .  It leaves me wanting to hear that gorgeous instrument played.
 
The lovely bits...

Shot with my trusty iPhone.

These three little stinkers are all mine.  I love them so much it is just about as ridiculous as they are. :D

Introduction

Random facts about me in the obligatory no-particular-order-of-importance.  It's more than an intro but if it doesn't scare you away then you have great fortitude. :D

1) I'm a dork.  After years of therapy (not really) and angst (only in high school) I now proudly own this fact.  I even bought the T-shirt....okay, I don't have the T-shirt but I'm seriously considering it.

2) I speak Mandarin Chinese.  Relatively fluently, although my accent when I speak it can only be described as rusty. Very rusty.

3) My family is the center of my world.

4) I tend to try and run before I know how to walk, but I keep at it, so eventually I stop making stupid mistakes (most of the time).

5) I love to read and wish I had more time for it.  I love soccer, skiing, backpacking and crafting (and a million other things).

6) I  consider my hair to be a toy.  It changes color frequently.

7) I love to dance!  But I stink at it so I save it for home where my awkwardness is only embarrassing to my girls--or will be when they are old enough to realize Mama isn't cool.

8 ) I am loyal.  To a fault.  This is something that has cut deeply both ways over the years but I guess it goes with the territory.

9) My favorite flowers are orchids. Any and all varieties.  I also really adore lilies, irises, roses, and clematis.

10) I am *not* a morning person.  I am very much a night owl.

11) I served 10 years in the Army.

12) I need a little bit of quiet, by myself "me time" each day to recharge, find inspiration, and stay sane.

13) I have a goal to get more pictures taken with me *in* them and with my family instead of always being only behind the camera.

14) I love watching Ninja Warrior.

15) I detest being called Missy.  I much prefer Mel.

16) I have a serious smiley face emoticon addiction (and I overuse parentheses).
