People call me Lizzie Bee

People call me Lizzie Bee. Southern California is where i call home and I have a family that I wouldn't trade for anything. Taken By A Good Man. Life is too short to not enjoy the beauty, comedy, sadness, love and righteousness that it holds. So here I share the things that mean something to me, in hopes they will mean something to you as well. Like OrangeSUnshine Blog on FACEBOOK for streaming updates:

Head Over Heels by Kevin Davies

Someone Once Said...

“There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

Happy Birthday

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."

The Longest Shadows Ever Cast

I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air
Then Labor day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin

This image was taken in winter time in a arid area of the Canadian Rockies. Temperatures where below -30 degrees Celsius yet because there was no snow fall the surface of the lake was uncovered allowing me to see and capture the bubbles (gas release from lake bed) that were trapped in the frozen waters.

I'm Mind Fucking You Right Now

The Tiny House Movement

I have had a fascination with tiny living lately. This is a great video on why someone would live in one of these homes and also day to day life in such a small place. Enjoy.



While waiting for the bus the other night in Cambridge, MA, there was a guy sitting on a black milk crate against the brick wall of a hair salon next to the bus stop overhang. He was a larger man, not obese in any way but built with large bones. He had a shaved head and wore dark clothes. He had these graffiti inspired illustrations tattooed on his legs and arms. He was sneaking sips from his Sam Adams that he was hiding in his black liquor store plastic bag. It was late on a Friday night and i was with a few friends coming home from 'Shakespeare in The Park' ready to have a few beers myself. I mindlessly said aloud, "this guy has the right idea." 
He noticed this and got my attention by asking me if i wanted a beer; "I have a 6 pack," he said after i denied his first request, "oh, no, you drink it."
I accepted his request at this time and my friend i was with (she is a very cautious, worrisome girl.. LOVE HER.) looked at me like i was out of my mind. She even whispered under her breath with a sincere concern, "Liz!!" with a wild fearful look on her face.
The man lent me his skateboard to sit on and i sat beside him against the brick wall and proceeded to sneak sips out of the bottle that i too, hid inside of the black bag. He had noticed some of my tattoos and we talked a little about the artwork. He asked me if i was an artist. I asked him if he was. He then showed me his sketchbook (i was impressed to say the least) and asked me to draw something in the pages. I proceeded to do so as he laughed and kept telling me that what i was creating looked like something out of Spongebob or some other kids cartoon. 
As we waited for the bus he continued to tell me more about himself, as well as i did to him in a proper Shakespearean tone and accent for i was still reveling in the epicness of 'All's Well That Ends Well.' 
He told me of his background in music and he even started freesetyling for me in an almost slam poetry fashion that was actually really good. His words had purpose behind them and they flowed freely from him with great intention. We talked for what seemed like an hours half, about life and our travels. 
His final note to me before he got up to board his bus was that life is defined by the beat of your heart. Music comes from the heart.. that 'thump thump' as he played a beat onto his knees and moved with the tones he was creating. He told me to always follow that beat and let it guide you. 
We exchanged information and both went on our way. For some reason this encounter greatly effected me. I wanted to share some of the artwork form his SITE. Very talented illustrator and graffiti artist that should be viewed with a fine art quality. Check it out.

Si brevis esse volo obscurus fio

I am in one of those moods again... So i put pen to paper and i wrote.. Life happens so fast, I often forget about where i have been and the things I've experienced and endured. I forget the originality and the strength and i try and create it new. What a waste of experience.

Thought: ((An apology is an empty gesture with no promise or intent to repair damage. Don't apologize unless you are truly sorry and have the desire and drive to right a wrong. Otherwise, if you apologize without any remorse or reasoning for why you should feel guilt, you will be constantly going against your word, which is really all you have. Even just saying the word "sorry" with no cause behind it is like throwing your very integrity out of a speeding car on an interstate overpass, from that moment on, what you apologized for will be a reflection of your character. Are you willing to uphold such a defining impression?))
 ::Just a thought. Delving deep into a shallow starting point.::


"I think it is brainless to assume that making changes to your window's view will give you a new perspective."
("So, then what's the problem if changing windows won't change your perspective.")

Well played good sir.


Obscure and Irrelevant

"I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies, for the hardest victory, is the victory over self." -Aristotle


On a final note: keep in mind that you need not share your feelings, you simply need to feel them.
