LOVE and JOY playing together :)

I had such fun taking jumping photos with the lovely Wendy Williams-Watt yesterday. I was excited to come across her fun big white Love Balls while working on the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo mural. I looked down the alleyway and saw several love balls rolling down the street. I knew we had to meet. I ran down the street to connect. Happy to have Wendy jumping for joy with the Big Love Balls :)

Wonderful things happen in the world when love and joy collide… stay tuned, I feel a fun collaboration starting to brew.

Spread love around the world with www.bigloveball.com

I was feeling like creating some photos and had no one lined up to shoot the other day, so I started looking for somewhere to do some selfie jumping photos and came across these power lines in a clearing in North Vancouver. Sometimes the least likely places provide an interesting backdrop… so I did a series of selfie jumping photos here. Fun!

Enjoy your day today.. get out and play!

you are always making up the future as you go…

“Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out. You’re curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because you’re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.” – Randall Munroe

the value of experiencing and enjoying the journey…

“…it’s amazing that the words “happy” or “happiness” or “joy” are not included in the definition of the word “success.” Unfortunately, our conventional definition of success is simply achieving the goal. Not enough emphasis is placed on the value of experiencing and enjoying the journey, building character, and learning life lessons along the way.” – Steve Rizzo See more at: http://success.com/article/why-we-need-to-redefine-success#sthash.1evJBbAm.dpuf
