Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our summer evenings, now for October eves. —Humbert Wolfe After mentioning the other day how much I love browns and rust, I wanted to do something in earthy tones; something to celebrate October. I’m also celebrating the fact that we… Read More
This summer I went on an interesting hike with my son and daughter-in-law. My plan was to stroll through Ferndell Nature Trail which is basically flat, covered by shade trees, and brimming with plants from all over the world. I guess you could call it an urban oasis. I shot this Elephant Ear there, and… Read More
Sometimes you have to let life turn you upside down so you can learn how to live right side up. I’ve been having some weird feelings lately. I think I’d call it “lack of joy,” but at the same time I keep reminding myself to stay grateful. What I’m REALLY grateful for is the fact… Read More
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… Read More
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 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
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different?
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it’s turn. Hal Borland A dear friend of mine gave us this tree when my dad passed away, and we planted it in a memorial garden in the backyard. Needless to say, watching all of these little heart shaped leaves spring forth every year is extra special. Have… Read More
Our backyard is absolutely blooming with color these past few days, and the Ginkgo is coming to life. Just about a week ago we could practically count the leaves on it! One thing I am really grateful for this past year is living with my mom. Besides the fact that we keep each other company (and… Read More

Call me crazy, but I have a plan. I’ve been wanting to do holiday photos but haven’t been getting out much yet. I picked up a $3 ornament and I’m going to use it as my prop for the next 13 days. Discovering Joy. Kind of like, Elf on the Shelf. Sounds a bit childlike,… Read More
