"Now I know that to conquer fear I must always act without hesitation
 and the flutters in my heart will vanish. 
Now I know that action reduces the lion of terror to an ant of equanimity.

-Og Mandino, Greatest Salesman in the World

Merry Christmas to All

Water World

Water passed by, free. 
Peace and love flowing deeply.
Bluer than the sky.

Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear…"
-Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela passed away peacefully at the age of 95 today. A peacemaker, human rights activist, leader and Nobel laureate were a few of his many, many accomplishments he gave back to the people of this world. A man who will always be remembered.

Up-and-Coming Freehand Artist, Tyler Lamph, met up with Conforme Belle recently and shared with us his undeniable creative drawing talent.

We made our way to the third floor of a local building and simply said, "Do what you do." He then became super focused and entered the creative zone. We watched in awe as he produced an amazing piece of artwork right before our eyes. His dark and twisted figures slowly started to rise off the paper of his notepad and began to take life! The long eery fingers of the large figure started to take shape and proved to be something you'd come across in a terrible nightmare. The evil grin…

See for yourself and watch as a plain white piece of paper is transformed into a haunting and amazing work of art.

Containing over 970+ still shots! Can

 you count them all? ;D

Decided to post a squirrel that befriended us recently in Zion National Park recently. Well it actually was more interested in the Pop Tarts we had in our bags. He bit through the bag and crawled in to get some snacky snacks! He then posed for us as a token of our offering to him. ;D 

Here's another one of him getting super up close and personal-

You move through life and carry momentum.
Sometimes a little bit. 
Sometimes a lot more than you had planned. 

Zion National Park, Utah

It’s believable.
That beauty exists. 
That it can be found.
 That it surrounds.

  I’d believe. 

What would it take to make the others believe?

The crashing of the waves and the breeze off the ocean pushes the mind towards a hypnotic and peaceful setting. It’s extremely difficult to emulate or experience anything else quite like the ocean’s sensation. 

It’s also not surprising that around 2.2 billion people live within miles of an ocean.

"Sometimes beauty just happens. Right there, right now. It’s sometimes so subtle and quiet that you must stop to recognize it. I feel most people blaze through life and simply fail to 'see' or 'feel' beauty. It’s happening all around, be in tune with the the world and it’s beauty."

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

"When I’m ready to make a photograph, 
I think I quite obviously see in my minds eye something that is not literally there in the true meaning of the word.
 I’m interested in something which is built up from within, 
Rather than just extracted from without."
