All Hallows’ Eve

“It’s said that All Hallows’ Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin – and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different…

I Cannot Live Without Books

Thomas Jefferson said that and I truly agree with him.  I can’t either. Ever since I was a little kid, I was reading everything I could get my hands on.  And I taught my children to do the same.  Both of them were reading at an early age and it has served them well. So,…

Tres Amigos

You know how sometimes friends move away and there’s a geographical divide as a result?  Not some short distance, but a long one.  One that’s not drive-able over a weekend?  And yet you get together again and it feels like no time has passed. Well, that’s the case with these three lovely people.  They moved…

Ahhh … the Girls

I was having a little fun today with some post processing and thought I’d share this one with all of you.  Foxy (L) and Daisy (R); two of our favorite creatures on the planet.  Foxy is our senior dog and Daisy is what we lovingly refer to as the “teenager.”  You all know how teenagers…

Bodega Bay

I was going to continue my series of images that I took at our recent visit to Tubac but this image came in today from my daughter.  She’s visiting Bodega Bay CA, a place near and dear to my heart. It’s 82 degrees there right now.  Wow!  Most of the time it’s a bit chilly and…

Just for Fun

This image is one I took of a sculpture while hubby and I were in Tubac recently.  I did some post-processing just for fun.  When I took the shot, there was no way to eliminate a busy background, so I had to do it manually in an editing program. The tortoise seems to be saying…
