I’m Reminded

I’m reminded, Of my younger days…  Growing up, Was on my mind…  A house,  A yard,  And picket fence. The perfect mate,  I hoped to find.  I’m reminded, Of growing older… Staying young, Was my desire… Smooth skin, Thin shape, Longevity. The extra income, That this required. I’m reminded, Of how far I’ve come… Looking […]

Looking Back

Looking at your past is not a bad thing. Not to brood over it, but to cherish fond memories; see what you’ve done right (and wrong); and to learn from your past mistakes. When you take it all in and reflect, you figure out what’s worth repeating, what you should do differently next time, and—more […]

Into the Unknown

Haiku #5 Enigmatic Path, Shadows and light intertwine, Past and present merge. I found several old road trip photographs while (still) sifting through my archives. I believe this one was taken in Utah. My boyfriend (at the time) wasn’t one to make pit stops, so my head was hanging out of the window most of […]

New Perspectives

Oftentimes I tell the people I meet about my transformation; how much I’ve changed since entering recovery and coming to believe. The way I usually describe it is that all of these changes are internal… they can’t be seen. Well, aside from the fact that you won’t “see” me drinking anymore. Sometimes I refer to […]

Late Afternoon Stroll

I haven’t given up on my new series, but I really wanted to do something today to chill out. I finished the second of my three weekly graphic design quizzes, and those tests really stress me out! This is Bricktown, Oklahoma City again. A little darker and more dramatic than the last photograph I shared […]

New Reflections

After working on my last image The View, I got an idea for a new series I want to try. And I’m going to try and stick to my guns this time! I’m going to focus on images that have views or reflections within the photograph, similar to when I set out to do that […]

Thursday Tidbit

Unless you learn to face your own shadows, you will continue to see them in others, because the world outside you is only a reflection of the world inside you. I’m still in the midst of some kind of photo block. Personally, I think it’s just a little burn-out. The story of my life is overdoing […]

Glass Half Full

Yes, my glass is always half full (non-alcoholic beverages, of course). And, as my sponsor says… it is also refillable. 🙂 I’m experimenting with glass over images and this is my first test run. The trees were shot at the old zoo today, and in reading a tutorial last night I was led to Image*After, which […]

What I Imagine

IF YOU LOSE YOURSELF in your work, you find who you are. If you express the best you have in you in your work, it is more than just the best you have in you that you are expressing. Frederick Buechner, Whistling in the Dark I thought it was rather coincidental (not) that my quote of […]

Expectations (A Poem)

Oh endless anticipation I dream of what’s to come I miss entire symphonies while beating my own drum The road beyond entices me I’m focused miles ahead Forever running to get there trampling flowers under tread I dreamed the world was perfect Expectations never cease The thing that I am lacking is a sense of inner peace. I […]

Objects in the Mirror

Life is like a road trip. We may appreciate the smooth stretches, but the bumps in the road are what truly make the journey memorable.
