Throwback Thursday

I almost didn’t make it under the wire for throwback Thursday. Lol! This image is one I took at a flower show several years ago. All of the orchids were beautiful but this one kept me coming back to look at it over and over again. Two of my favorite colors…purple and white. Yummy. Have…

Good Times

This image came up today on my FB timeline and it took me right back to my years of being a single Mom. Wow! There were some lean and lonely times but, looking back, I wouldn’t change anything. I had a tribe of friends, family members and work associates who were all there when I…

Cranky

Hahaha! Cranky describes me when I’m not creating something. Creativity is part of our inherent nature. Whatever it is you like to do, give it your all with passion. You have great gifts. Share them! My Olympus camera is an oldie but a goody and still one of my favorites. She and I had many…

Life

My brother wasn’t the kind of guy to buy presents for people. He hated shopping and would rather give someone money to buy what they wanted. I always teased him about that 🙂 For my birthday in 2010 he gave me this necklace, just a few months before he passed away. I remember when I…

The Only Kind of Drama I Want

Years ago when my son was visiting us in Tucson from Seattle, he named our sunsets “high drama.” I thought that was a perfect description. (He came in the summer … what was he thinking? LOL) This particular image was one I took that ranks near the top of my list of high drama sunsets….

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. Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

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…

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…

No Rush 

Everything in nature has its own timeline.  Our grapevines and fruit will be ready when they’re ready, even though they’re later this year. Nature can’t be rushed and we shouldn’t be either.  Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

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…

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…

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…
