One evening not long ago I hovered between the plane of wakefulness and sleep. In that space I saw so clearly what I have been saying for many moons. I saw Infinity glowing as a soft abstract muted mural and within the plane of Infinity were seen dark finite lines that man created as such … Continue reading No-Time
TRY TRY AGAIN!! Mother does not ever and I mean ever disappoint me! Two days ago the light was not friendly for this photographer to be taking pictures. It was a heavy overcast day with a real threat of yet more rain. Yet, my Heart yanked me in the direction of my favorite park. So … Continue reading If At First You Don’t Succeed
What do you do to stay connected to your Heart, your “sweet spot”, your “Bliss”, your Joy, especially when Life deems to throw hard balls your way? How do you not shut down to guard your Heart against the pain, the turmoil Life at times throws you in? Or, do you automatically shut down when … Continue reading Connection
When you believe and think something is impossible to do not even attempting to do what you think is impossible to do you will have cheated yourself out of a golden opportunity to prove to yourself you can [possibly] master the impossible when you do try and then to your surprise oh my gosh(!) succeed, you … Continue reading Powerful Thoughts
Have you ever been lied to from someone you put your entire trust in? Years go by and what you know to be truth one day, someone comes along and tells you is not.

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
Escaping the moment I could to catch Mother’s Ongoing Spring Show, I swiftly entered another entirely alternate World. Hubby and I have been quite involved with a major to-do here when our 17-year old Bella lost her balance and fell off a chair, landing on her side on a hardwood floor. She loves sitting on … Continue reading A Day In The Park
In those times of unadulterated daggers and darkness LIFE materializes at the most unexpected moments When you don’t think you can take another step forward LIFE lifts the boulders from off your shoulders Within the fiery blasts of agony exploding unrelentingly LIFE quietly with dignity brings glowing Calm When shock and horror … Continue reading LIFE
This post was supposed to be a double feature. Then I changed my mind, as only I’m apt to do especially when it comes to what I publish here. For those of you who are panting for flowers, know that my next post will show you the colors I found in my gardens. But first, … Continue reading First Experiment
I am giving Winter a proper sendoff this year. For the first time in my life I actually enjoyed this past Winter giving me opportunity to find another Season to Love. Winter has its own unique Beauty and Her Creations can be found in no other Season other then Winter. Last Saturday, Hubby and I … Continue reading Adieu, Winter
I seemed to have picked up a “lost puppy” just the other day. Here I was, minding my own business, astonished just how many birds I was seeing and capturing. Then comes along this young man, who no matter how many hints I gave that er, I was busy, stuck to me like glue, talking … Continue reading Lost Puppy, Birds, And More
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???
That morning, I put a stone in my jean’s pocket after getting dressed. Carefully I made sure that stone was way down at the bottom of my pocket for safe keeping. I had finally made another hair appointment after canceling my original one. I made sure all our cats were stable and that Hubby had … Continue reading What Will Be

Pulling the trash bin out from under the kitchen sink, Hubby asked, “What are your winter gloves doing in the kitchen trash?” I answered, “Cuz they stink and the garbage is where they belong.” After years of plunging those gloves (with my hands in them) in Cherish the horse’s 5 gallon water bucket to … Continue reading Trash Is Trash
When is the last time you went sledding? Or for that matter danced? I danced last evening to the amusement of Mr. Rusty Cat. Oh how I giggled when I saw the expression on his face. I’ve been having so much fun lately I feel as if I have returned to my childhood. Cool beans! … Continue reading Silent Sunday
Before I get to my short story today I just want to take a wee moment to show you what happens when my auto focus locks in on the wrong tree and my shutter button finger (oops) jumps the gun. Sure enough I got natta. 😂 I never did get the Downy Woodpecker I was attempting to … Continue reading Yes Some Do Stay
Yesterday our electricity went out just as I was ready to clean our bathrooms. Instead of moaning, I opened a book to pass the time until the electricity came back on. One hour passed. That is when I jumped up off the couch ready for action just not willing to wait any longer. I retrieved … Continue reading You’ve Got This!
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!
It would behoove you to know the appropriate time when to broach a “touchy” subject. ~~~~~~ *Cuddles – 14-year old aka Mr. Security in this house* With someone of a shy demeanor direct eye contact takes some time to achieve. ~~~~~ *Meaghan – 12-years old biological sister of Maxie’s* No matter your age … Continue reading Fur Morsels
Are you willing to step off the busy wheel to slowly and gently reflect what 2018 meant to you? ~~~~ Did you meet your goals, your dreams or did you miss the mark and not even see how your dreams were lined up ready to be? ~~~~ Did you lay down any new … Continue reading 2018 Reflections
When a photographer is out in the field, she must think on how best to shoot. My number one influence is light. Then I consider what I plan on shooting. Combining those two situations, I then proceed on how best to shoot. I recently viewed a short video by Scott Kelby, a well known … Continue reading When A Photographer
