Great TED Talk - Ron Finley~

I really liked what Ron has to say in his TED Talk. Watch this is you have a few minutes.  Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where "the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys."

Daily thoughts 9/1/2015

With my Birthday coming up on the 12th I am thinking and reflecting on all the positive and a little of the negative to learn from my mistakes this 28th year of life. As I transition into my 29th year I am really excited to be growing a lot as a person and spiritually I am opening some doors that I did not know how to previously even approach. As I gain confidence and insight into who I am as a person I feel so much more powerful and feel an unstoppable power rumbling inside of me. As I was waking up about 6am this morning I was feeling earths vibrations and getting recharged so to speak while clearing this dark black negative energy and replacing it with universal light to expand me to be me and exude my light and love to all others on this planet. It was a great morning and plan to do more of this work this late afternoon. Peace to all!

My Gratefulness today on 8/31/2015 at 9AM

8/31/2015  - Today I am grateful for waking up and feeling my stomach in pain and was still full from last night. As I purged my thoughts, stress and leftover food I came through a moment of clarity and felt restless and empty and just happy with feeling empty to look at that moment and realize this is my starting point today. At this point in time I can choose to go Up or go Down with my thoughts, emotions, problems or successes. Where do I want to go today? Who do I want to be today? Who cares!!!! I am Michael James and I can do anything I want in my life. I make the choices that affect me and my movements. If I fall then I have learned from the best place to fall and look up and ask who can I go up from here? If I have success I feel that and understand how I attracted this into my life. For today I am me. I am grateful to be me and to be breathing and thinking. Love yourself love your life.

My LOVE of taking photos!

I generally try and get out 3-5 times a month and take the Canon DSLR and go out and explore, play, get lost what have you and get as lost in nature as I can. Took this last year while climbing around in Mt. Baker's Backcountry!
