My Button Collection


By Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.


But of course.

 Crystal Opal Looks Like a Handheld Aquarium by Inna Gem

Crystals and gems are revered and collected for their physical beauty and monetary value and this Opal Butte crystal with contra luz color is no exception. The stunning gemstone, like many opals, features a varied spectrum of colors, but what separates it from the others is its spectacular visual effect. It looks like an underwater view of the ocean floor as light shines through it. There’s a surreal quality about the gemstone that looks like a pocket-sized aquarium

So that’s my advice to you:
Find something to be obsessed with and then obsess over it.
Don’t compete.
Find something that’s uniquely yours.
Be busy.
Seek and find a way to do what it is you want to do
Identify what that thing is and do it; don’t stand around too long having conversations about it.
Do it, refine it, do it more; don’t talk or think yourself out of doing it.
Say yes to almost everything.
Try new things.
Don’t be afraid to fail and don’t be afraid to work hard.
Do your pictures, don’t try to do somebody else’s pictures.
Don’t get lost inside your head and don’t worry about what camera you’re using.
Take photos of everything.
Be very open to the idea of chance and surprise.
