All we heard for days …. oh boy this one is gonna be bad. High winds with lake effect snow with up to 3 feet (91.4 cm) of snow. WARNING! This one is bad. Then, Christmas night, suddenly that forecast turned into 3 inches (7.62 cm). Are you freaking kidding me? Me being me, I … Continue reading What’s It Gonna Be?
May I talk openly and honestly about fear? Not a very popular subject I agree, yet I feel it is immensely important to talk about. Perhaps you haven’t thought much about this subject but I have. I’ve known fear, lived it, and now that I live love, wild horses couldn’t drag me back into fear. … Continue reading Love Or Fear … Your Choice
Recently, the itch came upon me to take a few shots of some of our babies. Instead of fooling around with settings, for the first time since I bought my new camera, I put my camera on Automatic. Me? Doing simple? Yep. Me. To my stunned eyes the ISO went all the way up to … Continue reading Feline Friday
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
Kids. It’s like this. The “enthusiasm” that is coming forth for my Fall series is impressive and OH I thank you all! There is a but coming. (smile) There are factors that I am contending with which will force my hand to make decisions. In speaking with hubby just yesterday he and I agreed we … Continue reading It’s Like This
Today’s story involves a mouse, a man and a woman. There was a mouse who decided he would make his Winter haven inside a man’s grill. This mouse found insulation for his nest, made it, and then he ran back and forth hundreds of times from the bird feeder in the backyard to the garage … Continue reading Warm And Cozy Or Not?
With this post my goal is to clearly show you when you are aware and take note of life itself, you will begin to see how ALL is connected. And I mean all. This past Friday, my neighbor who has been very ill for a long time, collapsed in his driveway. His wife flew over … Continue reading The Flow Of Life
As promised, I give you today part 2 of my miracle day while I was at a park a week ago this past Sunday. Friends, I came upon a species of birds I would have sworn were no longer here. To my complete astonishment, I stumbled upon Bluebirds. Most of these birds were in deep … Continue reading Drab Blue, Bright Yellow Part 2
This post is dedicated to all those millions of elderly people who are being held prisoners against their will in nursing homes. They are still today not allowed to have their families visit them, dying alone. This atrocity shocks my soul! When one of my neighbors began to tell me of a funeral he and … Continue reading Unimaginable Suffering
This stunning red rose has been glowing for weeks. I first noticed it around the same time Cookie took a turn for the worse about two weeks ago. My eyes were immediately drawn to it, day in and day out. I couldn’t get over the color of it, how bright and big it is, the … Continue reading The Journey Home
Oh. My. God. PAIN! Fire in my forearm ignited as I rapidly stepped back, dropping what I had been holding. I couldn’t believe what just happened for it had never before. And here I just got through saving a life when another of its kind stung me. Last Friday a yellowjacket …. think huge black … Continue reading YOW, Surprise!
Making up my mind to grab my camera equipment and go to the park I had in mind, an opportunity for Light and Love to appear happened. Did I know beforehand? No. But! That is exactly what I attracted to myself. Believe me, when these “miracles” occur, the resultant Gratitude and Awe I feel are … Continue reading An Hour Of Ecstasy
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
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
Hearing Hubby’s excited voice got my attention. He was babbling on about a cloud he had to capture. I saw him running out the door with his camera. In turn I grabbed my camera, joined him outside and began to shoot the exact cloud he was. What freedom to behold this wispy huge cloud in … Continue reading Everlasting Life
It would seem as if Hubby formed a relationship with a groundhog beginning a few weeks ago. Relationship is an odd term for me to use, for these two vied for victory with one another. Hubby was adamant that this groundhog would not be digging a hole in his pole barn foundation, and the groundhog … Continue reading Another Sort of Love Story
When you do one thing and believe another, you know not peace, you know not Self. When you think one thing and believe another you know not love, you know not Self. When you speak one thing and believe another, you know not truth, you know not Self. When you write one … Continue reading Clarification
Despite forces that hit with deadly force, She insisted, persisted to fight back. Time and time again her lovely head drooped with what would seem defeat, only to fool those forces whose intent was to kill. She went within. There She gathered her power, and waited, waited for the opportunity to again stand tall. Quietly … Continue reading Against All Odds
*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
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
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
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
I must have asked the right question for within one hour of that question answers began to rapidly come in. As I was feeding Rusty yesterday morning, who hasn’t been eating the brand of food I’ve been feeding our cats, in my mind the words went something like this, “Rusty is only 8 years old. … Continue reading BIG Change
I thank the few of you who voted in my three polls found within my last post from “Three”. Below you can find those results if you are interested. If not, just skip down to part 2 of this post. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Would you have attempted a conversation with this woman (with the lavender hair)? Yes … Continue reading Tallies, Birds, and Scapes
