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

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

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!

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

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?

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

Miracle

There are times when something happens that leaves me stunned to my Soul. That day is when it happened. Tired, aching from all the gardening I’ve been doing, I was out on a trail all because my Heart directed me to go. My sore hands and wrists could barely handle my heavy long lens. However, … Continue reading Miracle

No-Time

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

Rainbow

Last week was straight out of a nightmare. I’ve spoken to some who admitted the same thing. The top horror story in my life is I lost over 200 pictures that were taken at my fav park. My computer gobbled them up after I uploaded them into my editor. That, or I did something I … Continue reading Rainbow

Connection

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

Powerful Thoughts

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

New Beginnings

As I began the arduous job of cleaning out my gardens, I saw up close and personal, signs of Life. Despite the fact that my garden muscles have begun to protest, when I finished cleaning out gardens the other day, I turned around, picked up my camera, and crawled in those very gardens.   Yet … Continue reading New Beginnings

Bella Marie

Our precious Bella lost her fight to live at 8:30am on April 1st. Her little body finally gave out after many years of being unwell. Mom and Dad were right there with her as she passed. For hours afterwards, Mom, Dad and all her brothers and sisters were able to say goodbye. This death was … Continue reading Bella Marie

A Day In The Park

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

Here We Go!

Look at the above picture to get a solid idea of how tiny these new Crocus sprouts are that I am photographing. My ring size is a 6 and in this image you see my finger comparing finger to plant. Every year I am in awe of the tenacity of these early Spring flowers who … Continue reading Here We Go!
