2012 Through My Looking Glass – 24 December 2012

2012 was a pretty dry year for the looking glass. I am not sure why, I guess things wax and wane. Gave me time to focus elsewhere. Be that as it may. It was a fun year. Full of awesomness and fun. I love every year, I don’t wait for a new one to start something. I never say next year will be better. Today is my day. I am wrapping up a few highlights on this site, my personal be Awesome site and even updating Kelso’s highlights of his adventures. It is quite something to keep track of 3 blogs. This year saw Miss Josephine go into hiding because it was just too much to keep track of. Maybe she will fit into my own personal space and join the awesome revolution.  Who knows.

03 Jan 2012 – I got another Tattoo. Light.. Love.. Clarity. This is a personal one for me. My name means White Light and Clarity. I didn’t think it reasonable to tattoo white onto my skin, so I added Love, something I think is awesome. And everyone should tap into it.

15 Jan 2012MY TECHNOLOGY FAILED. My External drive fell on the floor. I was gutted. Years of stuff – gone. But it is almost a year later and I have survived. I don’t feel a sense of loss to be honest.

Muti Culture - 18 February 2012-4303 March 2012My journey to find my Mojo began. Losing inspiration is a horrible thing, but finding it makes it worth while. The images in background are mine. They were part of an exhibition. Some motivation. 🙂

Randomness

06 March 2012 I confessed my Love for Jozi – I love the inner city. It has a vibe like no other. Its a love hate relationship for many. It can be smoggy and dirty, but at the same time a hub of pure awesome.

Arts on Main - 04 March 2012-2006 March 2012 – On My quest to find my Mojo, I thought about learning something new. A new Photoshop technique with i think it very cool. End product … see blow.

Arts on Main - 04 March 2012-3011 March 2012 – To find one’s inner awesome and Mojo, One should photograph things they love. I gave it a go. I lost my way and I got cracking on the coffee, on the loves of my life and everything i fancy in the universe. Coffee and my son. Rockstars in the world I live in.

22 March 2012 – A pretty significant time for me. my FIRST TRIP TO CAPE TOWN!! It was a week end of Splendour with George. I loved it so much. I have been twice since then for work and I cannot wait to go back now that I know how to get onto the highway from the air port.

I had so much fun one day. Why look like an ostrich, head down, butt up when you can just use live view.
