The Swift Travels of Wind-Blown Sails

I'm really taking my time with uploading pictures, but as a result I feel like I have so much to say when I do! I gave myself a little vacation, have been gone the last 5 days or so. I went to Arizona and hiked in the red was amazing. I also did a lecture in Palm Springs on my way back home (we drove with our kitties!). The lecture was super fun and I had the best time sharing my story. I love speaking in front of people (well, I guess I'd be nuts if I loved speaking to myself...)...I hope I can do more of it.

I wrote a blog about this picture, including a before/after, but in a was inspired by Jonathan Swift and his creation of Laputa from Gulliver's Travels. The idea was freshly sparked by Castle in the Sky, an anime that I watched recently. My dearest Sonalii Castillo modeled, who is the epitome of strength and beauty tied into one, so I was very excited to see her as this character.
