I love the ritual of putting make-up on. I find it meditative, peaceful. I connect to my inner self, which outwardly gets expressed through the face I choose to put on that day. I am not an artist by any means, although I do creatively express myself through clothing choice, the design of my home, and my grooming rituals. Life really is an art. -tM
A staircase reminds us how to treat one another. -tM
Water is one of my healing life lines. There is nothing that a shower cannot ease. The minute I close that door and turn on the faucets time stands still. The water can go in any direction, and it reminds me that so can I. -tM
The endless movement of limbs and dress; a way to make time stand still. -tM
A gentle and elegant photographer. These selected few photo’s are just the tip of the iceberg. -tM
The likeness of this young woman, is astonishingly similar to that of my cousin as a young teen. There was something so freeing about the 70’s. I have always loved the vibe.
Happy Sunday lounging everyone. -tM
The power of music made even more powerful with the encouragement of the high heel.
Fashion + Music = Confidence/Power squared. If there was ever reason to get on the dance floor and move this weekend, let this be it. -tM
I am in a contemplative, needing patience, nervous, yet quiet kind of mood this morning. I have been craving the private solitude of nature this past week. -tM
While in the presence of silence, what is elusive in life can become crystal clear. The search for truth is an onerous quest, and never simple. -tM
The beautiful colour and texture of these images and words add a richness to life, making it a work of art in and of itself. -tM

Sometimes this is how I feel. Knowing when to let go is important, even if you are left there standing alone. -tM
The golden hour. Everything is touched with magic. -tM
In the name of autumn and all things changing, stop for a moment, cease your work, and look around you.
Happy Equinox friends. -tM
Between the sky, and amidst the lights, I dream. -tM
Ummm, yes at any age, and at any stage. I don’t have celebrity crushes, with the exception of this one. Happy Monday! -tM
Gohar Dashti series “Home” is a compilation of photographs spotlighting the abandoned homes in her country of Iran. It’s a solemn view of post-war spaces. It is also a homage to the power of nature and the earths capacity to renew and bring life to where life has been deserted. -tM
Sometimes movement doesn’t require you to take large leaps of faith, or to forge ahead at full speed. Sometimes sitting in silence is movement, an inward progression.
Recently I have been practising patience and allowing the space for life to move around and through me. While practising patience I am also respectfully moving at the pace that feels right for me. Sometimes slowing down in life makes for more meaningful action. -tM
The beauty of real is becoming as illusive as the snow leopard.
I don't know any other way of being, nor do I care to participate in alternate realities. I have never done well in the world of schmooze, because if I don't like you, I simply stay away from you.
I have a hand full of friends that I can rely on who are authentic themselves. Hollywood used to be the only place where illusion was celebrated, now that smoke has filtered its way into every facet of our lives. How you present yourself and choose to be is a conscious choice, and ones own prerogative, however it's a tricky illusion, and takes a lot of work to keep up the mirage.
The older I get, the more I gravitate toward the truth, even if it hurts. Because it is only from truth that one can grow, and that to me is the beauty of real. -tM
