Be the Light 

There was a lot of great natural light as I shot this image today and I love how it fades out around the edges.

TBT – Kit Car

It’s Throwback Thursday again. Time sure seems to be speeding up, doesn’t it?

I took this image back in 2012 for my 365 challenge. I don’t know for sure, but I think it’s one of those kit cars. Sure looks like one.

If my brother was still alive, he would know. He was such a lover of cars … anything with wheels. This one’s for you, Mike … XOXOX12.19.12.streetrod

Coming Home

I’m a big fan of K. D. Lang. My favorite song of hers is Coming Home.

When I hear it, I get a lump in my throat because it makes me think of coming home to Tucson. I do love that place! It has always felt like home.

The warm weather, the Catalina mountains, the sentinels of the desert known as Saguaros, the friendly people, the streets I used to drive to see my Mom, the high-drama sunsets, monsoon season … all combined to make it my home.

Someday Sedona

After my first visit to Sedona in 1997, I knew there was something magical about it. I didn’t want to leave, but was able to go back again a couple more times. Remnants of it will always be with me.

Recently, I found the piece I wrote after that first visit ….

SOMEDAY SEDONA

I saw you only once, yet I’ve always known you.

There in my soul you drift, keeping watch, beckoning.

Many have hiked your trails, ascended your bluffs.

Searching the awe of your seduction and finding stillness of self.

My time will come for you to hold me in your embrace.

I hear your whispers, know the breath of your kiss.

Someday, Sedona … I will come to you.

Tea Parties

As a little girl growing up in Kansas, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. Looking back, I realize just how blessed I was to be able to have them in my life.

Grandpa was the kind of man that every Mother wants her daughter to marry. Kind, loving, strong and yet sensitive. We spent many evenings together on the front porch swing, just rocking and talking. Oh, how I miss his wisdom now.

For Christmas one year, Grandma and Grandpa gave me a china tea set. It had pink roses and I just loved it. Every day I would invite Grandpa to have “tea” with me and he always said yes. Our tea was actually orange juice, his favorite.

When I was taking the image of this rose today, memories of Grandpa having tea with me came flooding back. This is for you, Grandpa, with love.

By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea

I could write volumes about the ocean and how I feel when I’m there, but I won’t.

I’ll just offer this image that I took last week. It was amazing watching the sun start its descent over the Pacific. I didn’t use any filters, so this is 100% organic.

It reminded me of the George Strait song “Stars on the Water.”
