a little for today

LOL! This is a snapshot from a silent movie I watched for film class.
Found it ticklishly humourous. 

It's been a while since I've written a real post, well, I'm not sure about you, but I do feel like it has been a while. Especially a written one. With real thoughts and inspiration.

I guess that I wouldn't really say that I've been busy? But I think I have been a little taken over by life's pace... and I think I'm losing track of where I actually want to go. I have also perhaps been just flowing along with what comes and while it might seem alright now, I have suspicions that I wouldn't perform as well as I actually really want to if I don't do something to change it now. 

Anyway, I found a little something, and I thought that it would be nice to share it here. 
If it can inspire you even as much as it can for me, I would say that I'm just glad to have been able to share. :)
