Signs Of The Times

Here we are once more on the Cusp of Autumn …   An early Harvest Moon   Heavier darker cloud cover   The Tourists gathering to leave   Leaving behind businesses silent and still   (Sassy saying,  “Mom! The thought of cold makes me want to sleep!”)   (Jersey saying, “What do you mean I … Continue reading Signs Of The Times

Smoky Mirror

Those who do not show kindness to others do not show gentleness to themselves.   Those who do not show encouragement to others do not show support to themselves.   Those who show anger to others show vexation to themselves.   Those who show ridicule to others do not show high self-esteem to themselves.   … Continue reading Smoky Mirror

Where?

Many may ask where is God in this world gone mad? My answers to those who do not see …   In the sunlit grasses swaying in the wind   In the innocence of a sleeping cat   Ready to meet you on the Rocky Road   Found in the golden silence of the trees … Continue reading Where?

Learning New

  I am always learning. Always. It seemed it was time for me to learn something new in my editing room. I use Photoshop just so you all know. I came across a blog recently that showed two functions in Lightroom that to me were new, camera calibration and radial filter. Knowing Lightroom and Photoshop … Continue reading Learning New

Unconscious Fear

Written for Wendi. Bless you on your journey.   Reading the words, “Always the battle of the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will though action, yet unattached to outcomes, remaining mindful that all you can do is stay out of your own way and let the Will of Heaven flow through you — these are … Continue reading Unconscious Fear

Awareness

“Generosity, morality, respect, service,  ….. meditation — these are actions for the good. Each one is a practice that can be cultivated and further refined, becoming the causes for our own happiness and the happiness of others. These acts for the good become our gift to the world.” Joseph Goldstein This is my third attempt to write … Continue reading Awareness

The Station

In much need of my therapist, I opened the cupboard door, reached in, and firmly took hold of my sanity check. From there I slid open our glass patio door to sit on our picnic bench. All Summer I’ve wanted to shoot those who come to my Hummingbird feeder and I just yesterday got around … Continue reading The Station

Life!

What are the chances it poured yesterday, the very day I planned on watering all my gardens? In fact, I had a sprinkler on, timer set, as I went upstairs to change from my pj’s into the clothes for the day. By the time I came back downstairs, a matter of about I’d say no … Continue reading Life!

Math Help

Yesterday I asked Hubby to help me figure out how much total square footage I have in my gardens. Why? The instructions on the fertilizers I plan on turning into the soil this Fall, direct me to put a certain amount in the soil per 100 square feet. Hubby’s eyes came to life after I … Continue reading Math Help

Own It!

Hubby asked me if I used several images to create this one picture. My answer was no. I couldn’t even if I knew how to, which I don’t. (smile) I was told the composition was exceptional, and to be truthful I was in awe as well. Just this one picture I could look and look … Continue reading Own It!

Monarchy

Some are tattered   some are young   yet what matters   is the song   the pulse-like Life Force   throbbing in all   who dare to submit   to the fuse beckoning to be lit. ~~~~ Forego the wrong dates on my pictures. I still cannot believe it is August. I’m still in July. … Continue reading Monarchy

Alone Time

Well. I’m beginning to realize I still require alone time with Mother. Yes, it is truly wonderful Hubby is now on board with his camera as he comes along with me on our outings together. But. My time with only me and my camera are imperative. So I made time yesterday to go it alone. … Continue reading Alone Time

Do We?

Do we ever really see the entire picture within each and every moment? ~~~~   Do we think it possible to be able to know all there is to know? ~~~   Do we take into consideration that life itself offers us patterns and standards if we but fully open? ~~~~   Do we have … Continue reading Do We?

Awareness Test

Which rose the young or the old did you first see? ~~~~~   What’s more unique, the blue insect or the spotted yellow petals? ~~~~   Does your heart connect with the majestic melody of this intrinsic ballet? ~~~~   Can you feel the beautiful jazz in this dramatic color display? ~~~~   Do you … Continue reading Awareness Test

Treasure Hunt

Recently, I obtained another pair of eyes. Hubby’s as a matter of fact. He decided to come along with me on a photo shoot. I grabbed this opportunity and ran with it. That man really got into the spirit of things. On location, he immediately began to scout, looking all around, even pointing at gravel … Continue reading Treasure Hunt

High Price To Pay!

What I went through yesterday just to get some pictures! I was eaten alive by skeeters even though I had insect repellent on! I was shocked! These insects this year have been ferocious, vicious, and in such a huge quantity that I cannot even walk out my door in the evening without putting insect repellent … Continue reading High Price To Pay!
