“Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.”
That man is richest whose pleasures are the cheapest.
—Henry David Thoreau
When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.Walt Disney
This was one of those unique moments, when you see something that you just don’t see every day.

I believe that if one always looked at the skies, one would end up with wings.Gustave Flaubert
I’m back from my mini vacation… and I feel like I’m ready to fly!
I’ve got a ton of catching up to do, and a plethora of images to sort through… but I wanted to share one of my favorite photographs thus far. I shot this the first day of my trip, at a park near the beach.
I love capturing birds on the move (as many of you already know), so I was thrilled when this duck struck a pose and I was able to catch it. I just love it when that happens!
Peace & Love Everyone!
It’s always exciting to see a new year approaching, and the word goal really got me thinking today. Not about my goals for the year ahead, but about the goals I’ve already set—over the last couple of years—and how they have helped change, or shape me, in ways I never expected.
In all honesty, sometimes I have NO idea where this journey is taking me. When I made the decision to go to college, I was SURE that Graphic Design was the path that was meant for me. When I decided to alter my course, and major in Psychology, it felt “perfectly natural.” And now—while I’m figuring out how to work English into the equation—I can’t help but wonder: “Will I ever get this right?” Continue reading A Better Me
This world is but a canvas to our imagination. Henry David Thoreau
I’m hoping to write something exciting here on the blog soon. I’ve been doing a lot in my English class, and I’ve gotten so many new ideas, but lately I feel fortunate just to have enough ‘leisure time’ to work on a creative image at night. Eventually I’ll get there!
I have several cloud photographs that I took about a year ago—and I’ve never known exactly what to do with them—so I decided to add a little interest to this one. I can’t be sure, but I’m thinking I might just do a little “cryptic cloud series.”
Have a beautiful weekend everyone … Peace and Love!!
No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart.
Have a beautiful day!
You’re off to great places. Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way. Dr. Seuess
It’s been a nice ‘creativity’ break here, but I’m heading back to school. Hope to check in and see what you’re all up to whenever I have free time. Peace & Love!!
And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. Meister Eckhart
If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies… how very different our ideals of beauty would be.
“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” -Gandhi
Simplicity Makes Me Happy. Alicia Keys
We must remember that everything in this world has God’s fingerprints on it—and that alone makes it special. Our inability to see beauty doesn’t suggest in the slightest that beauty is not there. Rather, it suggests that we are not looking carefully enough or with broad enough perspective to see the beauty.
When your life is filled with the desire to see the holiness in everyday life, something magical happens: ordinary life becomes extraordinary, and the very process of life begins to nourish your soul!
– Rabbi Harold Kushner
I wonder sometimes if we ever give God a headache. Children’s Quotes
