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!

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?

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!

Love And Roses

Why are roses   symbolic of Love   when along with the rose   come very sharp thorns   that if not handled with care   do prick and make bleed?   Could roses be   representations of Love   because Love includes   both Beauty   and pain? ~~~~~~ Handheld manual macro photography/ “Roses … Continue reading Love And Roses

Consequences

Without the walk with the talk actions are fraught in empty naught. Walk your talk solid and true for those around you to believe in you.   Otherwise you aint but a taint in this world a blight a nuisance ζ an empty shell rattling in your own hell. ~~~~~ Why else does the butterfly … Continue reading Consequences

Adventure?

Well! My adventure did not go quite the way I had anticipated. According to the satellite images I saw, I was in for a treat at Casenovia Creek Environmental Conservation. Sadly, however, that did not happen. The trails I saw via satellite were no longer evident, and nothing as far as I could ascertain was … Continue reading Adventure?

Synchronicity

With one eye on the clock, I was headed towards my Chiropractor’s office. If I hit green lights for the most part, I think I had a good chance getting there on time. When I saw flashing lights ahead of me after crossing a huge bridge that spanned a huge gorge, I groaned. Sure enough … Continue reading Synchronicity

Today

I rode my bike the other day having the best day   I’ve had in a very long time.   As I gazed upon the Beauty of this most delightful day   the thought, “But what about tomorrow?” formed.   “Will my tomorrow be as good if not better   then my day today?”   … Continue reading Today
