What’s your Southern Comfort?

No, not the alcohol… It’s the title of my favorite summer playlist. When it comes to summer, I’m a sucker for country songs about hot, sweaty nights, trucks, beer (even though I don’t partake), bodies of water, friends, fire, you name it! I’m kinda over the older songs like ‘She thinks my tractor’s sexy’, not that it’s a bad song but I’m trying to keep it more up to date. If any friends out there can make suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated. So here it is…

Also, over the weekend my boyfriend and I went camping over night to explore Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown, NH. Unfortunately it was only one night instead of two; not bring an air mattress was a huge mistake. We did take a couple hour hike down One Mile and Bear Brook Trails; Mocha (our puppy) was in absolute heaven. The one huge disappointment for me was that the little beach in the pet friendly camping area said no pets allowed! Hrmph!!!

I had fun though, and now I have made a new personal goal to go exploring as many state parks as I can- and to make it realistic I am not setting a time limit, but would like to get out more often. It’s so hard to find places that are pet friendly though.

Private Moon

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.” (Norman Vincent Peale or Les Brown??)

Leonid Tishkov has his own personal moon. He travels the world taking pictures of his moon in various places and settings. I believe that his work is supposed to tell a visual story or poem, of a man who fell in love with the moon “and stayed with her forever”. I love his creative process and his means of telling a story. How romanticized are some of his photos?
