Into da’ Zone

Into the Zone

Image

T here is a place where you can focus, where you can be effective, where you can make a solid connection to the best you have to offer. It is not a physical place, but rather a place that you can reach within yourself.

This Ya might think this place is an illusive place….but it auctually is an easy place to find, although many don’t feel comfortable there?…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is a way for you to block out the distractions, to give your full attention to the task at hand. There is a way for you to rise above the noise, confusion and superficial concerns that would otherwise hold you back.
*****************
Where is that place, what is that way? It is found by living true to your most deeply held purpose.
***************
It is reached by admitting and allowing the person you really are to drive your thoughts and actions. It is attained by honoring your most treasured dreams, by keeping them at the front of your mind, and by knowing that your life will make them real.
************
Remind yourself of who you are, of what you have to give, of the vision you can offer to life. See ur Vision like yvess rossy saw his. That Vision is the inspiration that leads to action to make the dream er vision a reality!:)That Vision that will put you into a zone where your thinking is clear and focused, and your actions bring the results you intend.
Whatever may be happening in the world around you, there is a way for you to get into a zone of positive purpose and heightened effectiveness.

Connect to the person you truly are, and you are there.
&
get urself into that zone where creativity mixes with expressionism…and a little fun….can even add a challenge to it too…whatever ya do make it fun!….by gettin into the zone:)…..
the zone of ur dreams…the zone of the dreams that can become truly a reality for ya:)….create from ur dream:)
~ so ~
believe and know ur thoughts are things
goin’ through ur body like sensations on waves…
splashin’ out the other side of expression…into a bit of realism….
and things one only dreamed possible:)…..
a h yes but to not be a dreamer fer me would not allow me to many times see the future that wasn’t …but will be the past after the creation from the expression of the dream has been so superbly done…
achieve ur dreams and visions as goals:)
beyond anything
is ur dreams desires….
&
with a little fortitude…the visions may become reality!..
so fly away into ur zone…..
if ya climb, climb ur way to the zone
if ya dive well
jest dive right in…if ya ride ride to it- if ya drive drive 2 it …any way ya do it!!!!
most importantly….Jest see the vision in the zone
and follow it with all ur hearts desire 🙂
and ya will become the future this zone of thought has to offer ya…
if ya get my drift…Believe it er Not!

~~~~~~~~~~~
well then ya could jest slip into the zone now couldn’t ya:)
thanks fer slippin’ by my Zoned out blog:)….
lol

Queensrÿche: Queen Of The Reich

Image

For she had really never given it a second thought she lewked in da’ mirror

QUARKSIRE’S QUEEN of the REICH !

🙂

It was then she realized, she was beautiful, and a Star.. more than an angel indeed….

a shining star that wanted to reach out and touch the werld she seen

…so became a story….The story of THE QUEEN of the REICH ! in Q’s Life !

A DREAM AND A HOPE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a dream an a hope was what waz
that shed recieve me in all the simplest of choices
shed choose to forgive & trust me
allow me to be her rock an her friend again;
was a hope a prayer an a dream – that now only seems lost in time
~~~~
when the angel closed her eyes-

oh what did she see? did she see me
that angel – eh? – will she be coming back again like the thunder chasing the wind

or dissapearing alike da’

lightning that jest fades away as a spark in the sky…..
~~~~~~
= Will my angel ever open up her eyes –

– will this feeling ever come back again –
i can feel my soul – now against the wind – as i fly ***courageously about!***
~~~~~~
if there was the Emergency of Now!?

well,,,, i am all alone….
there is no help to me…

not today…an
if she was thinkin i might get led astray,
what bout the wayz she was 2 me till today
i told her i loved her an my mind was true and sound-
now shes no where to be found..
I hear her voice when she said shed always be around
and now i wunder,
So? what made her lead herself astray?,

 leaving me with nothing…….without her……..
well i wunder is all i can do ,,what is to do …without her Once Again This Day in My Life!
couln’t keep it going to make us stronger

no she wouldnt let that be,

,,cuz she was always a wooried…
that i might get led astay…ya see!

~~~~~~~~~~~~.
So, in the end there she will be above the grave,, she so dug fer me….

An Jest a place fer me to lay me weeary ol; head

Queensrÿche – The Lady Wore Black

     For she had really never given it a second thought {being any sorta model that is} till one day she lewked in da’ mirror 🙂 It was then she realized, she was beautiful, and a Star.. a shining star that wanted to reach out and touch the werld she seen…so became a story.

The Story of Debra Lynn

Image

She had never thought she’d be any kinna star, cuz all along she was jest being the star she was this star inside….jest hopin’ to have found a way to come alive to her friends an her werld she so creates, at such an age, who doesn’t deserve but to realize and know…They are Tha Star! of their very own picture Show!

🙂

Image

🙂

…She played the part had fun doing it and in the end..she helped her star grow jest a bit brighter by opening her wingz to who she was.that day.a Lady Dressed i black !..Well, re-creationing the past is always a fun thing to do..especially if’n it can help another succeed in this thing called life.

Image

It all goes together hand in hand each successful step we take towards a future to be hold that is wundrous yes indeed…So. Point of is she stepped out one day, into the LIGHT got noticed and became the STAR! she knew she already was over night…this lady who wore black Debra Lynn;  Who in da’ end became a publicist a model an many other things as a result of the one day she went to a concert an wore black, took her mind her time her body and brought it to pen an paper for an article to make her first stash of cash and keep it goin’. for years and years traveling with the bands,etc etc, ABove shots are scans out of resolution so the originals can’t be stolen for commercial purposes…..Goes to show ya can be anything ya want to be, all ya have to do is get out there And DO IT!

Heres 2 lewkin @ YOU!

Queensrÿche – The Lady Wore Black
~~~~~~~~
On a lonely walk this morning
A light mist in the air
Dark clouds laughing at me in silence
Casting shadows through my hair
~~~~~~~~~~~
In the distance I saw a woman
Dressed in black with eyes of grey
She wore her pain like a shackled spirit
Eternal life was her debt to pay
~~~~~~~~~
The lady wore black
Its the sign of the prisoners lives
The lady wore black
See the years through the tears in her eyes
The lady wore black
Her mystic power calls to me
The lady wore black
Her love can set me free
~~~~~~~~~
The wind song whispered a warning
Telling me to beware
Of the quiet shadowed woman
And of the sadness I would share
~~~~~~~~~~~
We sat together for sometime together in silence
Never speaking in words
Of all her thoughts she spoke with her eyes
And I listened remembering all I heard
~~~~~~~~~~~
The lady wore black
Its the sign of the prisoners lives
The lady wore black
See the years through the tears in her eyes
The lady wore black
Her mystic power calls to me
The lady wore black
Her love can set me free
~~~~~~~~~
The words she spoke were of forgotten lives
And of all knowledge gained
Memories I had and didn’t know why
With a smile she explained
I should have listened to the winds cold warning
And walked the other way
I touched her soul and now I bear her sentence
But for her love I’ll gladly pay
~~~~~~~~~~~~
The lady wore black
Its the sign of the prisoners lives
The lady wore black
See the years through the tears in her eyes
The lady wore black
Her mystic power calls to me
The lady wore black
Her love can set me free
~~~~~~~~~~

Transcend the boundaries
To a place where darkened angels
Seemed lost and never found
Scream to see the light of
Forming figures fast behind you
Lay the past in the wind to spin
And your fate will sail beyond the open plains
Sail with angels onward
Live or die for the chosen one said
~~~~~~~~
when we are on the road to maddness…..

Queensrÿche: – Roads To Madness lyrics
Copyright by Geoff Tate; Queensrÿche:
**************************************************************
Most of this is memory now
Ive gone too far to turn back now
Im not quite what I thought I was but
Then again Im maybe more
The blood-words promised, Ive spoken
Releasing the names from the circle
Maybe I can leave here now and, o
Transcend the boundaries
~~~
For now Im standing here
Im awaiting this grand transition
The future is but past forgotten
On the road to madness
~~
Times measure rusts as it crawls
I see it’s face in the looking glass – stop
This screaming laughter hides, the pain of it’s reality
Black, the door was locked I opened
And now Ive paid that price ten-fold over
Knowledge – was it worth such torment, oh
To see the far side of shadow
~~~~
And still Im standing here
Im awaiting this grand transition
Im a fool in search of wisdom
And Im on the road to madness
Yes, Im on the road to madness
~~~~~
Im awaiting endlessly
Pounding rhythms echo me
Wont you take me somewhere far beyond the void
~~~~~~
And still Im standing here
Im awaiting this grand transition
Maybe one day, oh I’ll meet you, and well
Walk the roads to madness
Yes, were on the road to madness
~~~~~~~
Oh, I think they’ve come to take me
I hear the voice, but there’s no-one to see
I can’t scream, too late it’s time
~~~~~~~~
Stay on the course to pass
Youll never find the answer
To a place where darkened angels
Seemed lost and never found
Scream to see the light of
Forming figures fast behind you
Lay the past in the wind to spin
And your fate will sail beyond the open plains
Sail with angels onward
Live or die for the chosen one said
Saber sights cast a spell behind you
And they lock in all around
~~~~~~~~~
Free the scene insider
Never looking back to find why
Ride a course till the end of time
And you’ll stand atop the gate
Laying waste in a path recited
Fighting force wont avenge the guided black wing
Oh, electric might poses fright inside me
Seeing light at the end of sight reminds me
Ive passed away
~~~~~~

Jest whose eyes will i see if any,,,when that day finally comes for the weary Q? quark wunderz now …ah but now her newest of new mysteries , a new creation she prays for of and for thee i am what i am.no more.oh wel..man goeth to have fun.over an out……till da’ day it Happenz whenevr that is!

when i meet my maker ..if thast’ s the way it goes down when i finally go down…will be nice if sumday i can say, hey; il’ll let ya Know when i get there !

howbout that!?!

Quarked Anatomy ? whats dat?
Well More bout dat another time…We tried says Q 🙂

Ol skewl film New Skewl Techniques 🙂 An Article frum q aka mike on Subjektivity!

Where wrong is right and right is wrong.. 🙂
who says there aren’t beautiful people in mikeys werld well, well, is all i can say to them,
this shot is not photoshopped..an i personally think she is beautiful,,fun to photograph hair that Moves! also!.Anyhow is some asa 100 fuji offa the shelf years old. But werked jest fine, Shot with Minolta 28mm lens, and processed in rollers ya roll on the counter at home, with simple in the bag developing techniques, ya put the film in the bag, seperate from film container where it is dark in the bag, then put in canister, close roller canister, walla, then ya can take the bag off, lol… after that it is jest a simple process of putting in the film solutions necessary and transferring out solutions and rolling again and then washing etc etc..with black and white it takes one step in the bag an 3 steps auctually 4 in the can…..With color ya can do it in a 2 minute quick blix system offered by fuji is really kewl and quick in ur own home..or darkroom wherever ya have it. can be ur bathroom in the corner is that simple a program..Ultimately printing ur photo by using light through the negative onto a sheet of paper the size u choose, then ya can go digitally from there if u wish..Can shoot ur color negative onto paper using black and white technique and this is what ya end up with a color photo that got turnt black an white in the enlarger to paper stage and processing teck..So turn on da’.fan Q..whoo..hoo…

Image
Anyhow, These shots were shot onto glossy paper from a besseler enlarger old skewl;…nothing changed in the shot digitally…jest scanned from there for a copy to watermark…an date etc etc…..full resolution photos i don’t put on the net . I would prefer to show them or take them to trade shows etc etc… Jest the kind of guy i have become, I like playing with Big format printers, ! ie the hp650’s etc etc…Someday I’ll get back into my t-short and poster business i was in , with everything else, but i had gotten sidelined by a lady who took 5 years of my life to decide not to want to move to sunny southern Colorado from cold Canada,,,oh well…anyhow back to reality, is easy to do this kinna stuff at home still with ur 35mm and use the digital interface like i do,, i simply like the lewk of it better sumtimes, and well main reason why i use my manual old skel=wl minolta is i like to take lightning shots! when the storms come round here and catch em old skewl style where the “B” setting is used….Biggest problem i have from processing my own stuff at home is not being careful, it is easy to scratch ur negatives with a grain of sand if ya use a negative sponge to dry them with so ya dont get em spotted etc etc…ANyhow now i have digital i might try some photoshopping to some of my photos but if i do i’ll post the fact that it was photoshopped or somehow shaded er altered..Till next time happy shooting..Ur Subjekt..Whatevr er whomevr that might be….Am dom’t be ruthless an unkind as some i see , here there an about on da net, stay in gewd mind for another day – no matter how bad ya think it is it could be werse…believe me….ah but let me show er tell ya the wayzzz lol.& well whether doin it in da bag er doin it in da darkroom ,,,do it fer fun..is bout it to mikey!

here's to Lewkin @ you!         by; Quarksire
