Light Trickles

Indecision may or may not be my problem. -Jimmy Buffet After altering this photograph enough times I decided to go for the variety pack image… (thanks for the suggestion Nickel boy) hence the somewhat applicable quote. ūüėČ I think the purple negative at bottom right is actually my favorite. Below are clickable versions for anyone… Read More

Painting the Sky

The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.¬†Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance I’ve been dog sitting since Friday¬†and hope to share some interesting images later in the week. I brought my camera… but forgot the USB cable! That’s OK. It forced me to… Read More

Love & Acceptance

Most people need love and acceptance a lot more than they need advice. Bob Goff I forgot to include something in my previous post.¬†I was trying to watch my word count, and¬†I left out an important part of the story; which was the¬†reason that I chose to do the visualization of my¬†inner critic in the… Read More

Food For Thought

First of all, I was asked to do a panel Saturday night.¬†When I got there and saw my friend¬†behind a podium¬†(with a microphone!)… I almost lost my cookies.¬†And yes… that is what I had to do. Share my story in front of a fairly large group from behind that podium. That’s a FIRST for me,… Read More

Easy Does It

Perfectionism is man’s ultimate illusion. It simply doesn’t exist in the universe… If you are a perfectionist, you are guaranteed to be a loser in whatever you do. David Burns, MD. I read that quote in a book I am reading about writing. The key, they say… is JUST write. Don’t think about being perfect.… Read More

Painted Sunset

I mentioned before that I felt I was entering a new season, and… well… I believe that it’s here! This seems to be a season of learning for me. That being said, you’ll probably hear from me a little less often, simply because it means talking (or writing) less and listening (or reading) more. Funny… Read More

Another Life Boat

Fish Out of Water! That heading is from a book that I’m reading and I just¬†HAVE to share about it.¬†Yesterday was a really tough day. I met with my sponsor and we talked about my re-entry into the business world. At some point in the conversation I felt overwhelmed and started to cry. Every time… Read More

Finding Rest

I found the words this morning! So, I am going to go with it, with very little editing‚Ķ so I hope this all makes sense.¬†I guess the coolest thing I‚Äôve found about studying the word¬†trust is that it keeps leading me to new words. This morning the word was REST. First of all‚Ķ here is… Read More

Feeling Funky

I wanted to do something colorful tonight, so here you have it! Writer’s block has been preventing me from writing much of anything about my study of the word TRUST. Every single time I’ve tried!¬†So weird!¬†Anyway… I’m surrendering on the production of that post. At least until the words come streaming in. And I trust… Read More

Shades of Spring

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. Francis of Assisi I’m not a huge fan of pastels, but I thought this was a good fit for the season. And I’m pretty sure that this is a dove. Pigeons and doves confuse me sometimes. I don’t know… Read More

Queen of Hearts

I shot this image earlier and was prepared to post a blue leaf version, but I did another overlay and really liked the natural and subtle tones in this one. Maybe because I am very tired today. My experience on the panel last night went well. BUT… somehow I ended up going last and had… Read More

A Healthy Brunch

I’m really¬†liking the action around¬†here today! This is the squirrel that chased the parrots away; munching on a loquat. I guess nature is dictating what I’ll be taking photographs of this season! I’ve added some fun color and the squirrel is a bit hidden (like his henchman) behind a leaf, so I did a zoom… Read More

The Watchdog

I watched another squirrel (or the same one!) run across the cable this morning and do a little dive into the loquat tree. Looking for breakfast I assume. A few minutes later one of my feathered friends jumped OUT of the tree. I’m guessing that they don’t share the space too well! I got a… Read More

Nature’s Collage

Well, I had a great time visiting my sister! Not quite the photo ops I had anticipated, but hanging out with her was the real treat, so I’m not complaining!¬†I was asked to be on a panel Tuesday night—at a recovery center—and I’m really looking forward to that. If it wasn’t for the¬†commitment, I would… Read More
