What you saw when I modeled: Me fiercely posing on the sand. What the crew saw: Salt water in my eyes, nose and mouth!

It's as plain and simple as that. Legit. Stop complicating things people!

If only everyone realized this is what society has come to.
 
I found this article to be really apropos to my life in regard to a big decision we have made concerning our own lives, and how important supportive relationships are, especially right now.

I’m going home. Back to Arkansas after being away for well over a decade. I still can’t quite come to grips with this big, full circle move.

But my husband and I want our lives to be different...we want it to be more about our own supportive relationships with others and how we need to nurture them.

My dad had cataract surgery this week and as I was waiting for him in the waiting room, I was sitting next to a very nice gentleman. I dug around in my purse for my Kindle to help pass the time while Dad was in surgery and he was busy on his iPhone. He casually mentioned something about what we did before we had all of this technology and I quipped, ‘We talked to each to each other and got to know people around us.”

And we both promptly put away our gadgets and spent the next 30 minutes getting to know each other as we shared our stories.

I love how the computer and the associated technologies have opened up my life in so many ways. Via Facebook and G+, I have reconnected to some long-ago friends and I am grateful for the chance to casually reconnect with them online, but I want more Facetime with those that are important to me…I want long conversations over coffee or tea where I can read their expressions and we can dish about what’s important in our lives. I want a front porch with plenty of chairs so I can spend afternoons with friends and family talking instead of texting.

So, we are packing up our household, and leaving the Great Smokies at the end of this month. I’m excited and ready to hit the ground running, exploring our new home and revisiting some old stomping grounds, before there were iPhones and iPads, G+, Facebook and Twitter.

I feel so retro!

If you have a dream and you have a goal, and you knock on that front door and they won’t allow you in, go through the back door. If the back door is locked, go through the cellar. If that’s all boarded up, climb your butt through the window, but get in!

Strength is nothing more than how well you hide the pain.
