Day 821 Last of The “Safer is S.E.X.Y” Series, Photo VI

Day 821

I hate to do it but this is the last photo of the S.E.X.Y. series. Next up, photos from the Boston Flower Show. Since I wanted to go out with a bang, I chose one of the most energetic ladies I met during the event. When I first walked in she was trying to get the people in the room pumped up and sharing some real knowledge about respecting your body. She was funny and bold and her facial expressions had me thinking I was among “Happy people”.

After her pep talk she asked the ladies in the room to get up and strut their stuff. Those ladies walking around the room doing their thing is what really made me take my camera out of the bag.

Her expression in this photo says to me… “See Me? You Better Recognize…I’m beautiful, I’m sexy and that lame game you’re pushing at me needs to chill!” Like Shea Rose’s song, I’m The Sh..t!!

Blessing to all of you that have taken the time out of your busy day to follow this series. I just ask you to remember, “Safer is SEXY”.

Day 820

The incredible Shea Rose! I really didn’t know much about her or her music until the S.E.X.Y event. See, I’m that old school music lover and maybe a little bit of that “Gangster Rap” guy but to me a lot of this new music sounds like they are singing nursery rhymes. Really, I’m just not that hip!

When I was told Ms. Rose would be performing in support of the S.E.X.Y event I expected she would “superstar” it by coming in near the end, perform one or two songs and get out quickly. To my surprise, she was there for the entire show! The power of her presence amplified the spirit of everyone in the room, especially the younger ladies.

When she took the stage the room lit up with her energy. She focused on you as if were the only one in the room. I saw this happen time and time again with everyone she engaged. If you didn’t feel her words you didn’t have a soul. She moved me enough that I purchased her CD and I haven’t stopped listening to it since.

I hope this photo shows a little of the beauty and love we received from her that evening. Should you want to learn more about her music and charity work, check out her website at

Day 818

This lovely young lady was one of the organizers of the “S.E.X.Y” event. Because she was extremely busy making sure the event went well and the attendees connected with each other I only had a few seconds to take two photos. I chose this one and edited in this style because it captured a small part of the essence she projected.

However, one of the most interesting things I learned about (in a short conversation) is that she’s an artist —a “Painter” and…she’s my neighbor. It just reminded me that the world is small and I need to do more to make sure I connect with other artists in my community.
