Only in great darkness can we see the light.
Especially in times of conflict, we start to question everything big and small.
Sometimes the clouds have the answers or inspirations we seek.

Decided to try my go at some video shooting a few weekends ago. The weather was overcast, cold, and less than ideal for stunning photo shots.
Despite all of that, I decided to see if I could catch anything that caught my creative eye. I did find a lovely place to shoot and it started snowing just as I was setting up. Normally, I don’t like to fly in the snow for safety reasons, but the area was clear and safe.
I was really pleased with the final edit from this little adventure. This video clip is a good reminder for me that even in the darkest of days, if our minds are open and our hearts are centered, we can still find beauty to enjoy and share.
Hope Everyone Is Having A GREAT WEEK!
More snow here today...
Take care 🐼😊👍✌️
It's been really cold and dreary here in Michigan as of late.
The weather inspired and helped release my suppressed nostalgic 90s flannel wearing sweater grunge rooted vibes. 😆
This flight and music mix is a tribute to on of my favorite bands from that period.
I want to send a special shoutout to all my Pantastic PandaPals !!
Special thanks to everyone old and new that have visited Pandemedium!

Wanted to try and create a something darker this month since Halloween will be here before we know it. I have to admit old cemeteries are quite fascinating to me. Walking the grounds springs forth a multitude of a variety feelings. Of course sadness is the most common, but also happiness.
Here is a stream of consciousness from my experience:
Dark, peace, rest, lovers, friends, warriors, sleeping, loss, grieving, empty, lingering, lost, pain, anger, sadness, good memories, moments in time, flickering, dust, earth, wind, memorial, rise, fall, leaves, rebirth.
Enjoy everyone 🐼

Really enjoyed my last adventure in Northern Michigan. This is one of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen in awhile. Higgins Lake is located in Roscommon, Michigan. It is one of my most favorite places to visit. The people are so very friendly, polite, and will talk to complete strangers like friends. Sometimes it is difficult for me to engage in these conversations initially as this just doesn't happen in the city. When I do force myself to suppress my city instincts in an effort to make small talk with the locals, I am always glad that I did.
Sometimes the most simple conversations are the most rewarding. It reminds me what it means to be human being. That we are all connected in this crazy amazing world. With the leaps we make in technology, it might be good for us to remember to make an effort to skip that ATM machine, put down that tablet, phone, and go outside of our comfort zones to engage others in conversation like my Northern friends do. It just make someone else's day a bit brighter. Everyone have a great week. ✌️🐼❤️
