A Day In The Life

The United States of America’s First Amendment  passed in 1789, protects my freedom of speech. If you don’t agree with something I wrote, keep in mind, this is my life, my story. Thank you. ~~~~~~~   While August is advancing steadily towards September with huge cloud formations in the sky above us, my cats and … Continue reading A Day In The Life

Pockets Of Hope

When I heard our libraries were finally reopened, my heart soared! However, the library I normally frequent continued to be closed so I chose to visit another library nearby.   What a miserable experience! A sterile environment is what I unknowing walked into where plastic shields separated patrons from employees. I saw most of the … Continue reading Pockets Of Hope

Lilacs And Peonies

This year my Lilacs and Peonies did not do well. This Spring has seen very volatile weather from freezes to snow and torrents of rain, to hail to vicious winds and then on a dime, to very high temperatures. As these flowers began to bloom, the temperatures soared and in so doing, my flowers basically … Continue reading Lilacs And Peonies

V For Victory!

For the first time in seven and a half years, I am closing comments indefinitely and I will not be blogging. I will be, however, publishing my photography for your enjoyment. In order for me to survive what is transpiring in this world today, I must act with self-preservation. I am putting me first! Comments … Continue reading V For Victory!

Serendipity

While eating dinner last evening, my eyes repeatedly gazed at a particular sight I saw out my window and I thought, “I wonder if I could capture what I am seeing with my camera.” I looked and wondered all the time as I ate. When finished with dinner, I went to get my long lens … Continue reading Serendipity

Heaven On Earth

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

Bird Heaven

Before “The Event” that I’m about to tell you about happened, I was drawn to this family’s energy like a bee to honey. In so doing I asked them if I could take their picture. I did my best not to have their faces showing and I even told them I prefer to shoot them … Continue reading Bird Heaven

The Victory

Don’t miss out on this empowering music.   The smile upon enraptured lips beamed upon humanity   And in that beam of bright pure light all fear vanished immediately   Yet distanced from that very light fear did snake tenaciously   With a hiss all reason flew for fear commanded compliancy   Until one day … Continue reading The Victory

Seek The Light

This healing heart music pairs beautifully with this post.   Rise above the ominous clouds to seek the light to seek the light   And in finding the light shield your light stand tall do not fall   There you commence to create your world founded in love and in peace   Here fear does … Continue reading Seek The Light

Freedom

  Juve Red-Tail Hawk Everywhere I walked I was deliberately stopped for you see others, desperate for conversation, wanted to talk to me. Not one person that day had mask or gloves on. Now if you are out and about taking a walk in a park, all you have to do is have binocs around … Continue reading Freedom

Disjointed Realities

*Play music while you read.*   Beep. Beep. From around the corner while cleaning out a kitty litter pan, I heard beeps. Instinctively knowing what was happening, I dropped what I was doing and rushed to the kitchen. Sure enough my husband had not only stopped the food timer I had running but he set it … Continue reading Disjointed Realities

Treasure Hunt

Could it possibly be   a bird I’ve wanted to see?   Oh no don’t fly away!   Please let me see   move for me,   turn your head so I can see   a Ruby-crowned Kinglet! YES!! ~~~~ The moment “Ruby-crowned Kinglet” is mentioned to any photographer or birder, the face is transformed … Continue reading Treasure Hunt

Common Sense

Two days ago, New York State law was changed making it mandatory everyone must wear a mask while outdoors. Of all the idiotic things to mandate! Well, evidently some doctors spoke up immediately stating how unhealthy it is to wear a mask for people who run. That very same day at about 8pm, the law … Continue reading Common Sense

Nesting Week 6

Hubby and I have been like kids now and again. We are laughing. And did he ever pull a good one over on me! He came home one day from grocery shopping, exclaiming, “Honey, you wouldn’t believe what I saw! People are now wearing scuba diving masks!” I looked at him, shaking my head, and … Continue reading Nesting Week 6

Teeny Tale

Groaning out loud, I wouldn’t give up despite my aching arms as I maintained my long lens almost vertically towards the sky. I had spotted a teeny bird flitting from branch to branch with no stop in sight. I was attempting to follow this bird with my long lens. I had quietly paired up with … Continue reading Teeny Tale

Refuge

As humanity collectively holds its breath waiting … waiting … for what is anyone’s guess, so many torn up in fear, the natural world goes on as if there is nothing at all wrong. It is with much relief I go to the places of wild that give me sustaining life and refuge outside this … Continue reading Refuge

My 2 Gifts +

Stepping off trail, I carefully walked as quietly as I could towards what I call the swampy pond. Approaching the edge of the pond I chose a tree to half hide behind so I could scan the entire pond. I was looking for a specific breed of ducks, based on a very strong feeing I … Continue reading My 2 Gifts +

My Reality

Friends, do not hook into the deliberate lies, propaganda, and fear tactics that the media is pounding at us. Stop reading, stop listening, just STOP! This is NOT my reality and as I have said so many times in previous years, I will not bend my knee to fear. Start getting involved in those things … Continue reading My Reality

Do Not Give Up

Even when something seems too far out of reach, just about impossible, don’t let that stop you from at least going for it. If you do nothing by giving up, you may well have passed up a golden opportunity that would give you something you thought unreachable. That happened to me yesterday. Here I was … Continue reading Do Not Give Up
