Heh, a moment before this refreshed the number there was 29,990. Where did 89 people go in one refresh? Is it because I was Heather today? ;-)

The past few weeks I've been trying to take a different approach to my life. Realizing that I'm not going to be able to tackle everything in a single day or effort, I've just been trying to remind myself to simply "be better". Each day. With everything that I do. It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the possibilities and all the things that you think you should do or need to do. So, I'm starting small. With little decisions that are all backed by the thought of "be better". It's been a productive few weeks. I'm enjoying the things I've been able to introduce into my life and the little victories I've had. While there hasn't been any radical transformation, I think I'm in the process of creating better habits for myself. Which is kind of what I'm after. :-) 

I heard this song at some point in the past few weeks as all of this has been going through my head. These particular lines seemed to hit home for me. 
 
I didn't know I was broken
Till I wanted to change
I wanna get better
Better, better, better
I wanna get better

Bleachers - I Wanna Get Better (Lyric Video)

Exercise is supposed to make you feel good, they said. I was starting to agree. Until today when I might have gone a little overboard. Now everything hurts... But that means it's working, right? Oh, and I want salt. Apparently that has something to do with electrolytes. But seriously, I could drink pickle juice right now that's how much salt I want. Heh

Okay, I'll shut up now. Oh, this was from yesterday when it was almost warm. Apparently it might snow again this week.

Two self portraits in one week. I can't even remember the last time I did this... if ever. heh.

Anyway, here's one for #lyricallyinspired  

Hey heart on the road again
Moving on forward
Sticks and stones won't break our bones
We're in a car on the highway
It's a magical feeling that no one's got a hold
You're a catalyst to your happiness you know
This is your heart it's alive
It's pumping blood
And it's your heart it's alive 
It's pumping blood 
And the whole wide world is whistling
And it's whistling

NONONO - Pumpin Blood (Official Video)

When I think back on a lot of years that have passed, I realize that I don't remember too much. Not in the way of the details, anyway. While the details of situations have always been fuzzy, the memory of rooms, roads, intersections, and a variety of random places have always been strong. There are a set of recurring images that always seem to pop up in my thoughts - seemingly randomly and unrelated to whatever I'm thinking about. In ways, it sometimes feels like I'm haunted by images, good or bad. For some time now, I've thought about photographing some of these "places" that always come back to me in a fleeting flash. A visual trip down memory lane, if you will. This is one of those places. The reason this place sticks in my memory is a bit more obvious than a lot of the other things I'm talking about. So, I figured it was a good place to start.

I lived in an apartment down the street from this park for quite a few years of my childhood. This pavilion sits in the middle of the park nestled between trails and trees. It's been repainted and repaired since I was a kid and looks slightly different than I remembered. While this basically looks like any pavilion in any park in any place, this one has seen some interesting things. 

As I'm sitting here writing this, I'm debating if I actually want to tell you what I found here one day or if I should just leave it with telling you I found something that people just shouldn't find in a park pavilion. At the end of the day, I'm not sure it really matters what I found. Just that I came across something that has apparently stuck with me over the years.

Some other times, you have to remember to breathe. Seriously. Sometimes I forget. ;-)

It's been a long time since I've taken a self portrait. Not sure why exactly - just haven't had the urge, I guess. Winter is hard for me - I tend to shut off and hibernate a bit. The things that I enjoy doing become difficult, if not impossible to do. Okay, maybe not impossible... but significantly less pleasant.  Stupid cold. Anyway, anytime I lie on my stomach on my bed like this, it reminds me of being a daydreaming teenager. Not a bad thing I suppose. ;-) 

Hope you kids are having a great Sunday. :-)

I don't care if I'm being irrationally optimistic about the end of winter. It's close enough for me. ;-)

It just occurred to me that in the past two weeks I've been in Seattle, DC, and now almost NYC. I'm now realizing that my life seems much more interesting than it actually is. ;-)
