At this time, I ponder exactly that... "Thanks Giving". What exactly is it that I am thankful for? Let me start by thanking you, my gracious readers for taking this time. I'd also like to thank my supportive friends and especially all the Goddesses... my clients who have graced my studio and been my muse, for you are my inspiration. In these times it seems that most people are focusing on what they do not have. Thanksgiving is an opportunity to remind us of what we do have. Most of us live in a state of wanting. Wanting this or that - living in a state of dissatisfaction with our selves. I have so many women call and inquire about boudoir shoots... or participating in pin-up classes, but take months if not years to call me back. They "just want to lose that extra ten pounds". Yes, dissatisfaction with the way they are, right here... right now. This is why I have chosen Eileen as my Goddess of the Month for November. Eileen has participated in two of my pin-up classes and has a 3rd scheduled for March of next year. What I appreciate about her is her joy for life and her acceptance of herself as she is. Eileen: "I see myself as cute, cuddly, curvaceous and comfortable in my own skin. It's been a journey to get there, but you have to be grateful for what you have. There's terrible discrimination that exists in the world, people judge you for what you are on the outside, people need to take the opportunity to look deeper within each other. In my photo-shoot I was not guarded at all... it was all me, so there can be no wrong. This experience was freeing and exhilarating and empowering, I felt invincible! A smile makes everybody beautiful!"
