What is that restlessness that lies deep within our souls?

No matter where we are in life, I think we all feel it – we feel that burn deep within, that wildfire that is impossible to put out.  We get caught up in our daily routines and it flickers, it fades, but then? Out of nowhere, the slightest breeze feeds it new life and it grows, it spreads, it takes over our consciousness.  It manifests itself in different ways for everyone – for some, it pours out of the soul in the form of a painting, in watercolors splashed across canvas.  For others, it comes out as words, sentences that burn up the pages of a journal.  And for others still, it comes as a need to wander, to run – to chase after that glowing ember on the horizon.  Don’t give up the chase, for it’s this never-ending hunt that drives us through the most memorable moments of our lives.  Feed your inner wildfire, let it burn and light your way.

where can i find the jewelry shown in these pictures?? the turquoise bracelet in particular :)

Hypnotica Vintage -July 21, 2014, 11:33AM

Ally- there is a lot of vintage Navajo and Zuni made jewelry on Ebay and Etsy. It really pays to read some books or at least internet articles about it before buying though- quality really varies and there are a lot of fakes out there.

Sara -July 21, 2014, 3:09PM

Oh wow – gorgeous photos and just absolutely phenomenal writing. This really hit me!

On pic 21, the lovely sweater coat the model is wearing with colbolt blue in it, is that a FP item? If so, can you tell me what it’s called and price and availability? Thank you!

Ally, here is a vintage bracelet that looks identical on Ebay. I was just browsing and came across it.
I hate when FP puts beautiful pieces in their photos that they don’t sell themselves, I wish they would at least cite the designer or where it was from. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Native-American-Navajo-Pawn-Turquoise-Petit-Point-Sterling-Silver-Bracelet-Cuff/380952690986?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D23929%26meid%3D8480879145230240641%26pid%3D100005%26prg%3D10200%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D301247101327&rt=nc

such a wonderfully free spirited post, it hits the sweet spot…..since I’m a fire sign I have a affinity for fire: candles, campfires, passion, action….I even have a collection of well worn, well loved cowboy boots…

The western black & white boots posted here on the log by Julie- wondering what company they are and where can I purchase a pair? They are not a free people boot I’ve found out. Please email and let me know ASAP. Thank you!
