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 […]
What I have in my heart and soul — must find a way out. That’s the reason for music. Ludwig van Beethoven Today has been such a good day! It felt like there was a little celebration going on inside of my soul, and I wanted to burst out in song! Believe it or not, […]
Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. Oscar Wilde Would you believe that today marks exactly two years for me here on the blog? Another week and I’ll also reach two years and seven months sober. Praise God for that! Time flies […]
Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue. John Muir
And all at once, summer collapsed into fall. Oscar Wilde This may be a little premature—there are still leaves on the trees—but this year I’m so happy to see summer go that I really don’t care. Yahoo! It’s been a very, very hot summer. With no A/C in our house, and one that’s been out […]
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. Jacques Cousteau

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. Cicero
Evenings are the beautifully sweet spot between the harsh light of the day and the dead darkness of night. I thought I was back in action over a month ago, yet time has whizzed by and here I am- still working on homework on a nightly basis. The good news is that the fall semester […]
In contrast to the black and white image of Cadillac Ranch that I did awhile back, I wanted to do something with color, but something unique. It reminds me of the moon for some reason. Cars on the moon… wouldn’t that be weird!

“I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.” -J.K. Rowling
Well, like it or not this was a blast to create. My summer school final is next week, and then I’ll be out taking more photographs. In the meantime, I wanted to add something to my series- even though I don’t have any good reflections, doorways or windows. So… I improvised. Anyway, as the title […]

Art is anything you can get away with. – Marshall McLuhan I wasn’t planning to post anything tonight. I was about to turn off my computer when I saw this photograph from my previous adventure at the old zoo. I altered (slightly) the look of the cave exterior, and that really IS my friend inside. […]
A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. -John Barrymore I found this quote not long after I wrote my bit about TIME. It sure makes sense! It doesn’t exactly fit with the featured image here, but considering I’m still dreaming of cooler places, the dream theme kind of works for now. […]

Devote yourself to an idea. Go make it happen. Struggle on it. Overcome your fears. Don’t you forget: this is your dream. Read, read, read… I’ve been doing that a lot to learn new techniques in Photoshop. And I’m back to my sketchy images. The featured image is Bricktown, Oklahoma City. I took this during […]
