The Courtesan

I've been having such vivid, lovely dreams at night here recently and I'm kind of amazed at how that's been helping me to sleep better. I guess that if I thought a bit longer on the subject, it probably makes more sense that if one is having a wonderful dream, then one wishes to stay asleep as long as possible.

I did a short set of photos to help try to capture one of these dreams - I tried to fill them with as much emotion as I could and I really do hope it comes across. I'm not a professional model or photographer by any stretch of the imagination. Rather, an amateur with a lot of spare time, a meager point-and-shoot camera and very limited photo-editing skills. And lucid dreams to use as inspiration.

If you care to take a look, the photos can be viewed here. I'm always looking to improve my skills, so please feel free to give me some (constructive) criticism!

Here I am and there You are

I'm feeling a bit galvanized, so here I am. Going to have a fresh go at doing the things that I love and sharing them with you.

For those of you that don't know me, you can expect to see a healthy smattering of sewing, costuming, drawing, random videos, food, music, and adventure. Just a big mess o' stuff!

Cheery-bye 'til next time!
