What has been keeping you busy?

I found myself really overwhelmed with work for this seasons show, But I wanted to check in and see how all of you are doing? Have you taken my advice and built friendships amongst yourselves. I found a really beautiful card tonight that said
"for every star there is a person", when you look to the stars you share with someone you know a thing of beauty. What have you seen lately that has inspired you guys, I have some advice for you, I do this every day , make a note of something amazing you have never seen before and write it on the blog share one thing a day with all of us. Today, I saw NYC from the top of the mandarin oriental, central park is so beautiful from above and all the buildings old and new, brilliant!!!

Saw a film on the East river front last night on a screen run by solar power. Amazing that people can harness the Sun's power.. sitting by the river in the darkness and a nice walk home was wonderful.

I made friends with another girl named Theresa, who comments on your blog, via myspace. So we did take your advice, to answer your question. :D

The thing that I have recently seen that most inspired me is a flower that I found in the backyard of my old house. I took a picture of it, if you're interested:

I made friends with Jessiqua, [she commented above,] over myspace. :]

The most recent thing that I heard, [rather than saw, haha] that inspired me was the classical piece, 'Cello Sonata in G Minor,' composed by Bach. I heard it in a movie & I thought it was so beautiful... Just, amazing. I love classical music.

It's good to hear from you again, Malan. :D

I am getting ready to go back to school. I just got back from a wedding where I caught the bouquet... =)

Sadly I have not made any new friends. Packing is taking up my life. If anyone is interested, my email is

I yelled out "Snakes on a plane!" in the Palisades Mall and about ten people turned to me and yelled back "We've had it with these m'thaf'in snakes on this m'thaf'in plane!" Which was amazing. I realized that was probably the most uttered phrase in America this weekend.

Silly I know. But it gives me unity with the rest of the nation. Which rarely ever happens.

Oh and go see Little Miss Sunshine it's the most beautiful film, from head to toe everything is perfect.

I recently just saw the movie Memoirs of a Geisha, and even though it wasn't good with following the book it was such a beautiful movie. I mean you couldn't help but just immerse yourself in its beauty, with the cherry blossoms and silk kimonos. I've always had a soft spot for Japanese culture, so this movie really inspired me with its beauty. I hope to do some geshia paintings as a result from it.

Once, when I went to Saipan (near Japan), I saw the most amazing sunset. My room looked right over the ocean...Purples, reds, and teary yellows mixed in with the dark indigo colours of the sea, creating a vast expanse of colour...

From 1986-1999, I collected photos of sunsets taken with my two clunker cameras--a chunky old Mamiya 35 mm, and later a Minolta with a fab zoom lens.

I have two entire BOOKS filled with sunsets from my previous apartment where I lived on the 6th floor. I'd open up my window, flip up the screen and shoot for about 30 mins two or three times a week, even in winter.

It's no surprise people confuse colors and mismatch, God's palette is so much more vast.

Thank you for reminding me of this, Malan. Recently, I learned that one of my cousins, who is battling breast cancer, had taken a turn for the worse--it's been so depressing. But it's important to remember that each day is precious, and rather than worrying about the future, sometimes we need to live and love right now, in the moment.

This morning, I'm just thankful for music. One of my friends sent me his band's most recent CD--isn't it wonderful to just lose yourself in songs?

I've been to so many fabulous places that have taken my breath away. I love to travel. It opens so many doors for me and makes me see things that I never knew or opens up my mind to new possibilities.

I've gone accross the Golden Gate Bridge and visted Alcatraz in San Fran. I've seen Vegas all lit up at night and won 300 out of a slot machine and only played the slots once while there. (luck be a lady! lol) I love the energy of New York City its like no other. I saw some idiot bang on the Liberty Bell with a hammer and get arrested for it. (he just wanted to see what it would sound like). I've been to Ben and Jerrys factory tours in Vermont. (best place ever!!! esp the free ice cream, hehe) I stayed a weekened in the Magestic White Mountains of New Hampshire, seen all the crazy shoppers at Downtown Crossing in Boston, went up to the top of the Pirate Tower in Key West and saw the amazing view of the blue waters from up above and tasted the excentric cuban cuisine in Miami. Here in Maine I work at night so I always get the pleasure of driving to work watching the beautiful Maine sunsets. I also live on the coast and am spoild by 5 beaches and state parks. When I can I go for a walk to clear my head. I love the smell of the ocean and the soft sand between my toes. Today was a boring day for me. I'm off to work tonight and I had to serve jury duty this morning. ugh. But I'll keep you updated on things ;-) I hope things are going well for you and things are a lil' less stressful.

Ada-I'm soo sorry to hear about your cousin. I was dx'd with Breast Cancer 2 years ago this month. I can't say I know exactly what you are going thro, but I want you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and I will light a prayer candle for you and cousin tonight. If you need me for anything even just a shoulder to cry on please feel free to e-mail me!

Take Care All!
Your Brandy

Anything in nature inspires me, but I'd have to say anything having to do with the autumn inspires me the most.

Side Note: I am taking my fisrt EVER trip to Manhattan this weekend. Even though I know that the chances are slim to none, I am keeping my eyes wide open for some of my favorite PR guys.

Everytime I hold my daughter in my arms and look into those big, blue eyes my heart fills and I am inspired to be the best person I can for her.

She amazes me and Malan she is a diva! She goes nowhere without accessories...typically faux pearls, her cat frame sunglasses (with rhinestones) and a bracelets from India pushed up over her biceps. Oh to be 4 again.

I saw your final episode of PR. Something happened in your exit interview-- the shroud fell and I saw who you really were. I was inspired by that moment. Your willingness to be somber in that moment struck me deeply. Maybe someday when I am older and much more able, I shall go to New York and be wowed in person by the vision, spirit, and heart in your designs.
