Mon. random muse linkup.

Hello all. I decided to grab a Monday link up today.  
Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
1. Happy Presidents Day
I hope that everyone has a day filled with love. In honor of it being president's day I'll share a quote that I found because I can't pick a favorite president out of the entire group.

 You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
Abraham Lincoln

2. Running through the streets of Japan
I used what I wrote today as my motivation to run this afternoon. I seriously almost didn't go run but then I thought, how bad would that be to write an entire thing about being motivated and then just be a lazy bum. The run ended up being really good and exactly what I needed. Normally people on the streets out here seriously get in your way...the best part is when they notice they are in your way they just stop dead in their tracks making the situation even more frustrating. You know those situations when you walk face to face with someone and you both are like "up up *goes left *goes right*goes left8 &^%$@! nothing stopped me and the entire run went smooth and DUN DUN DUN...I enjoyed it.

3. In the midst of tears...I find
The song who you are by Jessie J. She sang it in the subway in New York; if you Google it make sure you watch this version. When I first looked at it I was like woo this is about to be dumb BUT then by the end I was almost in tears. Probably because I've been down in the dumps with emotions. I listened to her lyrics and the parts, it's okay not to be okay, dreaming is believing and tears don't mean your losing...I feel so silly  but I was moved by this. Did I mention how powerful her voice is? Talk about diva potential.
4. Products of the love child
In case you didn't know I call my camera my love child. She's been treating me very well lately. I got a Facebook page started up for all of my stuff recently. I'm going to hold off on the website because I haven't done any shoots with people recently. I will probably do that once I get back in the states. Here's my link though: If you get the chance any "likes" to this page would be appreciated a lot. I need some support.

There isn't much else on my mind right now that I can write about. I do have an urge to grab a Diet Coke and graze on Etsy or Ebay. I'm sad so I need to buy something (I have retail therapy issues but hey, the first step to solving an issue is admitting you have it *insert winky*) I really hope that everyone has a great day. I've noticed lots of people stopping by the blog lately and it's really making me spirits dance. Good morning and Good night from Japan and me.
