On the day this post’s pictures were taken I lost one of my photographer mitts. As you can see by my feature picture those mitts had a lot of mileage on them and they were cherished. Where or when I inadvertently lost one of them, I do not know. All I do know is when … Continue reading Missing Mitt
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me besides the still waters, He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of … Continue reading Prayer
It is with great relief I am back in my comfort zone, believe me. When my Inner Guidance kept me awake one night with me saying “no” to what I was being asked to do, I finally relented and agreed to do it. This “task” terrified me but I overcame that terror in ways I … Continue reading Colors Of Love

In My World only I am Master there holder of Divinity’s mirror reflecting Heaven’s abode all to lighten your load.

Words at times escape me as I struggle to convey my experiences to you in those times I walk on Holy Ground in the forests I frequent. I’ve been at times lifted so high by what I was seeing, smelling, feeling, hearing, that I transcended time into NO-TIME. A Bible verse came to me out … Continue reading Holy Ground
One of my absolute favorite things to do at this time of year is using my long lens for close-up captures of leaf and branch designs. I gasp out loud at times just so amazed how Mother repeatedly, hands down, is the Master Artist. One of my most valuable lessons from Hubby has been his … Continue reading Intrigue™ Designs©Mother
Every park has its own unique personality and energy. These pictures today are from a park that I am so fortunate to live right in front of. This is where I go for my walks and on the day I dragged by tired behind to this park I brought along my wide angle lens. Didn’t … Continue reading On A Clear Day

You are about to experience a mind-blowing experience. Get ready for you are going to fly so high your head will hit the sky! Most … Continue reading Explosion!
When you are finished with drama, fear, violence, corruption, lies, manipulation, lawlessness, all sorts of evil of every kind, and instead choose Love, you will discover for yourself a brand new world Within; and as you do, the more you exist in this new world the more it will exist in your Without. ~~~~~ … Continue reading Verde
I invite you today to join me as we go for a walk in the woods. It has been so hot and humid here these past few weeks after an excessively wet Spring, that before my eyes has grown a jungle in the park I frequent so often. Come with me as you relax … Continue reading Come With Me
Those times when life becomes unbearably tough and sanity threatens to leave my eyes intentionally shift to that which liberates duress from my soul, enclosing absolute peace around my heart as my Sacred Spirit soars to unite with Mother in a Land I call Heaven on Earth. ~~~~ *Take a deep breath, close your eyes, … Continue reading Heaven On Earth
Just last week, I “happened” to cross paths with two women while in a forest. Within that conversation, I received an invite to join them and other women every Tuesday to hike in the woods. I noted the time and told them, despite the time slot for the hike which normally would find me taking care … Continue reading The Gift
When someone does something that really really bugs you and you find yourself getting upset about this something, and then as your relentless thoughts about this something persist night and day tormenting you and plain driving you nuts(!), this usually inadvertently indicates there is something within yourself the Universe is attempting to get your … Continue reading Mirrors
I normally do not show three pictures of the same bird, but there are always exceptions especially when it comes to a bird I’ve been trying to capture for years. A gorgeous male Pileated Woodpecker was spotted almost immediately when I entered the park. Could it really be this easy when I’ve been “hunting” for … Continue reading Gotcha!
Looking into the mirror the next day, I was shocked by what I saw. Just one hour being outdoors without any foundation on had put age on my face! NO!!! Aging, at least this part of it, I do not like! My skin has become thin and the cold puts added age onto an already … Continue reading Cold’s Effects
Just the other day I decided to go to Chestnut Ridge Park, camera in tow, with hope I’d hit the peak Fall colors. I wasn’t in tiptop form that day, yet I insisted on going. Deciding to leave my fanny pack with my water bottle in the car, and only carrying one camera body, I … Continue reading Creating Possible
With camera in hand, I went to Reintstein Park. To my astounded eyes, the colors that are showing now, are some of the brightest I think I’ve ever seen! I think from all the rain we had this year, this year’s Exhibition of Color is going to be phenomenal. As it is, what I found … Continue reading A Walk In The Park
Today I will show you how I went from an original image to the final edit when I used Photoshop and a program called Topaz Studio. You can see for yourself what I see as I go along with my editing process. I won’t be showing all the steps or what I used in each … Continue reading Experiment
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
As some of you know, I have recently found a place where I can go to immerse myself in such Beauty that each and every time I do go, I feel as if I have walked into Heaven itself. Because so many pictures are included to introduce you to my new Heaven, I’ve decided to … Continue reading My New Heaven Part I
A portion of the Love Dance I witnessed ‘tween two Flickers ~~~~~~ Walking in the pouring rain yesterday paid off as I witnessed a Love Dance between two Flickers. I followed their mating calls through the forest, hoping hoping hoping I would see them. For some reason, these birds do not easily stand out and … Continue reading Love Is In The Air
Have I been missed? It’s been so long since I’ve been here (at least it feels that way to me). Blame the Forest. I just can’t keep away. I’ve taken so many pictures that if I posted all of them, well, let’s just say, we’d be here forever and a day. Obsessed I have been … Continue reading Feathers and Friends
Whoever thought of the saying “this weather is for the birds” is a clueless nincompoop. I bet my birdseed that the idiot who thought of this catchy phrase did so from the comfort of heat and safe from the elements. Meanwhile, I and my cousins, sisters, brothers, in fact all feathered friends and family, shiver … Continue reading The Last Hoo-Rahhhh???
Sure …. the words just came from me in my last post that stated I seem to be in a void, in the “in-between” and wouldn’t you know it, Mother’s Magic Door opened and opened in a BIG way. In two days time, I captured wildlife in a way that had me doing the Happy … Continue reading Jackpot!
