Resurrecting Gratitude When the (unofficial) quarantine began, I was on a mission. Two if you count the New Lifestyle New, New Me project—but that actually started before “everything changed.” What I’m referring to, and what […]
I am not an island, That is what I have been told. But I am alone when at sea, it seems, Paddling out in the cold. I am not an island, Isolation takes its toll. […]
I am easily amused. A cheap date, so to speak. It takes very little to keep me happy. This morning I splurged and purchased a new program, for my “loaner” laptop, called Smart Photo Editor. […]
Keep your face with sunshine lit,Laugh a little bit.All the shadows off will flit,If you have the grit and wit,Just to laugh a little bit. An excerpt from Laugh a Little, by Edmund Vance Cooke […]
This morning I read a ‘daily email’ on the subject of Eternity. One of the definitions is: A state of existence outside of time, and this particular meaning reminded me of something that happened years […]
They’re coming for us! Swords blazing bright, fight or flight… Get out while you can! It kind of ruins the mood when I try to explain everything, but this Image and Haiku are just too […]
Drop-ins at the Bay, Laugh and Play Pitter-patter, Welcome intrusion. Last night I decided that using borrowed images, or upcycling my own (which I’ve done here) is about all I can handle at the moment. […]
May the lilt of Irish laughter lighten every load. Irish Blessing If Google translate is working today, Amhráin Ghrá means Songs of Love. We need more of those today. If it’s not, if there’s an […]
I wanted to stay up and do something before bed. I am NOT adjusting to the time change at all, and I am not a fan of staring at the ceiling until God knows what […]
Week one has come to an end and I’m happy to report that I’m down 4 pounds. What’s even better? It’s the beginning of week TWO! Now it’s time to shake things up. I’ve been […]
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. Alan Watts I thought I’d create this composite piece to express how I’m feeling […]

The worst cliques are those which consist of one man.George Bernard Shaw
What a wonderful day it is!
First things first. I got my hands on some new filters for Photoshop (thanks to a fellow blogger). Now that my options have increased… so have my ideas. This is going to be a great week!
A strong woman looks a challenge dead in the eye and gives it a wink.
Tiny blossoms are springing forth on the flowering plum tree.
Sprouts that is.
Actually… I had no idea WHAT this plant was when I decided to use it in my Garden Art. This may be one of the last pieces in that series, too. For now anyway. I started working at two (very small) part time jobs, so when you add that to school, things are starting to get hectic.

Little blueberry blossoms, like tiny church bells… shining in their glory.
