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…

Red Wine

Red, white or blush? My choice is red. When I found this particular bottle, I knew I had to buy it. Especially because of what the back label said. I lived in Napa for a while. If you’ve never been there, it’s worth the experience. Cheers! Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Breaking Down the Stats

70% of people make purchasing decisions to solve problems. 30% make decisions to gain something. What kind of problems? You name it … they’re out there. Granted, some of them are perceived problems. But perception is reality until something happens to change it. As for the 30% who want to gain something – well, that…

OK, It IS a Big Deal

I don’t usually make a big deal out of my birthday. Well, one of them I did … my 30th. Somehow I managed to celebrate for two weeks. (Please don’t ask me any questions about it because I’ll take the 5th) Ha! But this year on this day, I’ll be celebrating by the Pacific Ocean,…

TBT

Well, my dear readers, it’s Throwback Thursday again. I hope this finds you all well and thriving. This image is from my days in Tucson. So hot there now that I won’t be going back until winter. Can you blame me???? It’s hard to get a perspective of how large this stone thunderbird is. It’s…
