…a mechanical wonder allowed me to see the sun rise for the first time in two hundred years. And what sunrises, seen as the human eye could never see them: silver at first, then, as the years progressed, in tones of purple, red, and my long lost blue.
-Louis, Interview with the Vampire
I’m not sure when i last witnessed a sunrise but that’s the quote that almost always comes to mind on the rate occasions I do. It’s funny how things come back to your memory…on Sunday I had to get up at 5:45 to get there fully made up by 8…only to have my hours cut at noon. Though I was upset about it…I wasn’t. I have been moving and doing stuff and traveling and working so much…I needed it. I got home took a photo of my makeup to do a post (probably won’t go up-photos look eesh) and then passed out to a Tim Burton marathon on abc family. I’m now paying for it because I’m wide awake at 2am and I didn’t take my makeup off prior to my nap…so I’m broken out and cranky. Sometimes pretty is ugly. This was one of those days.
But I needed that day.
I hope you all have a day like that and you enjoy the little things we often miss by being too busy…like an amazing sunrise.
Take time my lovelies…
