Cleopatra and running

Today was a good day. More and more I feel like someone BIG definitely has my back in the universe. I’ve got new client meetings, personal photo projects planned, I feel great and every day I learn something new. I’ve started reading the book Cleopatra a life by Stacy Schiff (I have a fascination with women in history) and as it turns out the majority of the accounts we have heard about her were based in fiction. People that were alive centuries after she was around created her history. I actually find it interesting that the ‘history’ we have known of her all these years is mostly based on a bunch of stories some people made up years after her death. 


I read a lot, not as much as I used to, but I’m getting back there. Now-a-days I read mostly articles to do with photography on the net, but I’m pushing to have more face time with actual books. I’ve even gone as far as to create an Amazon wish list just for books. So far, I’ve read two books on the list. One I couldn’t make it through but I have a valid reason. It was a very high level self help book written by a psychologist. Let’s just say I could hardly understand what she was talking about and I think I even started to feel a little crappy about myself. Yah, that one is on a time out! Cleopatra is the one I’m reading now. Hopefully it won’t be as hard to get through. I think next in line for me will be Beauty and Sadness. I have a long list of photography books to make my way through as well, but that is for another post. 

I learned a very interesting thing today too via Google. I’m quite possibly allergic to running. It even has a name: Exercise-induced anaphylaxis. Apparently I need a prescription if I want to get and stay fit that way. LOL, how strange!

Happy weekend!

Peace and love everytime
