Clear Conscience Multi-Purpose Contact Lens Solution Review

 Clear Conscience Multi-Purpose Contact Lens Solution - $11.99

I've been using this contact solution for about a year now, and I absolutely love it. It took me this long to write about it, because I wanted to make sure that I thoroughly tested it out before I shared my thoughts. That being said, it definitely passed with flying colors and I'll keep purchasing it from here on out.

The main reason that I switched over to this brand is because they do not test on animals. That is a big deal for me, and I'm really trying to change my ways and only buy cruelty-free brands.

It's a little expensive for solution, but as always with natural products that do things right, I'm willing to pay the extra. It means the world to me that companies are trying to do better, so of course those are the people that I love to support.

After doing more research about the brand, I found that most contact solution is made with terrible chemicals, like thimerosal (contains mercury) and chlorhexidine (raises ones risk of heart attacks), and on top of that they're irradiated. So let's put it in our eyes! Seriously, I don't know how these people can sleep at night. Clear Conscience doesn't do that, so it's a much better option for you, the animals, and the planet.

However, I am trying to heal my eyes, so cutting out products in general is the most eco-friendly, natural thing to do in the first place. A lot of raw foodists have found that their eyesight has improved or healed completely, and it's actually quite a common thing. So in the future, I might not even need to wear contacts as much as I do now. I still like to have fun with different colors, so in the meantime while I have a prescription, this is my new go-to product. It's really worth switching over.

The Last Unicorn

"I know you. If I were blind I'd know what you are."
- Schmendrick (Alan Arkin), The Last Unicorn

At last... After a few opportunities throughout my life, I have finally come to know and fully appreciate The Last Unicorn. Years ago, I discovered that unicorns are indeed real, and since then, Life has been elevated in ways I had only yet dreamt of, and to heights that continue to surpass all I could hope to imagine. Only after being bestowen such fortune would come the realization of why those opportunities had passed me by; this experience was meant to be with Claudia. I have always desired to share in this tale with my Truelove since she first told me that it has the most significant of meanings for her, and as the Universe tends to align for us, the perfect time for our celebration came on her birthday this year.

This film is beautiful and enchanting. An ambassador for the time in which it was created, The Last Unicorn has a "true magic" that is rarely conveyed within the technical prowess of recent cinema. The art direction was rich, and the vivid use of color was one of the movie's strongest virtues. Music and voice performances were wonderful, featuring some well-known talent.

Unicorn: "I'm looking for others like me. Have you seen them, Magician?"
Schmendrick: "No, I've never seen anyone like you. Not while I was awake, anyway."
- Unicorn (Mia Farrow) and Schmendrick (Alan Arkin), The Last Unicorn

The story is one of longing curiosity that leads to self-discovery, for it is through our every adventure (both great and small) that we come to know ourselves more completely. Claudia and I have been most fortunate and blessed to have each other as part of this grand journey; our paths entwined the day we met, and we've known unfathomable growth since that glowing beginning.

Occasionally, who we are can be forgotten; our path changes us in ways that are unpredictable, and we transform into something new before it may become apparent. An entire lifetime or years may be required for certain changes, whereas others will literally occur overnight or in the blink of an eye. The only way is through, and if every turn, mountain, bridge, or bluff can be appreciated as a learning experience, then we are all free to expand; new heights await us in this timeless spiral of Life.

Happy movie watching.

Another Year

"Another Year"

On this day, I celebrate another year of growth for you, my one and only beloved, Claudia Sutton.
It is throughout the Ages of this Cosmos that I have waited to reunite my soul again,
And thanks to you, my other half, I have found the true meaning of Light, Love, and Life.
The illumination you have granted me is infinitely brighter than any material gift I could ever give.
Meaningful gifts will come, but only one gift could duly honor all that you are:

I, Aaron Rhyne Hendren, do freely give to you, Claudia Michelle Sutton,
all that I am; my mind, heart, body, and spirit.
I give myself to you wholly, and do reserve every nuance of my being to you alone.
I promise to give you my very best, and through every challenge, great and small,
I promise to share with you the same Light, Love, and Life that you have bestowed upon me.

You are everything to me, and so I shall give you everything I am in return.

I love you, Claudia Sutton.

Happy Birthday!

Tropicana


This is a collaboration between myself and Alyshells, who provided the linework for this painting. Inspired by ancient summers, I went with something very primitive for the colors. Perhaps it’s a lost medallion from an era long forgotten. Painted in Photoshop in 8 hours.

Adventures in the Real World: Go Anywhere, Stay Anywhere

Aaron and I have been trying this out during the summer, and it's been so much fun. We cleaned out our trunk, put some blankets down, and went at it. It's time to see the world... It's calling to us.

Cheers and here's to happy, healthy living.
