Over the Sea

Colors flow like rain,

Birds take flight as wild winds blow,

Perfect summer storm.


Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Bird & Blow

As the Crow flies

Dignified hunter,

The dark ruler of the sky,

Wings spread, you’ll fly… high.

I captured this crow in our neighbors tree the other day and decided he was worth the (computer) time and struggle. He was all alone—practicing social distancing I suppose—and we connected for a minute or two before he lifted his wings for this farewell pose and sailed off.

Life is good and God is great!

Is Fear Surreal?

FEAR has Two Meanings:

Forget Everything and Run…

or Face Everything and Rise.

A quote by Zig Ziglar

I think there may be a third option. Be still. Because maybe, like this woman seems to realize, there is nothing to fear—but fear itself. 🙂

A Lavender Glow

We are one leaf on the great human tree. Pablo Neruda

I’ve given a fresh look to an old image, just for the fun of it. I love the dreamy glow in the leaves.

I really don’t have much to share today. Everything is wonderful and there are lots of things in the works… but I am learning to wait until it’s time before I talk about things.

There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people. Vincent van Gogh

Saturday a dear friend who lives out of state is flying in, and she and I will be hitting the beach, and doing some hiking (I can already feel my calves getting sore!). So… if all goes as planned I will have some exciting new photographs to share.

That’s about all for now.

Life is good and God is great!!

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 about 7 minutes to tell my tale. Needless to say, I had to skip through half the story and get to the good stuff fast! Maybe that’s a good thing!

Anyway, we went out afterwards and I didn’t get home until midnight, after a couple cups of coffee. So… my sleep was a bit disturbed.

I’ll tell you one thing. I found out that getting in that rut where I forget to be grateful is easily remedied by doing things like the panels. Seeing the tired and sad faces in the crowd made me both grateful for where I am today and eager to share my HOPE with them. I hit a new level of gratitude, for sure.

That’s about all for now. Love you guys!
