Moody

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love going to the beach. Being near the ocean always has a calming effect for me. 

This image is one I took a while back on a particularly beautiful day in Lincoln City, Oregon. I decided to give it a moody look using the Prisma app (my favorite one … this week). Ha!

The light coming through the pier seems to say, “explore … come closer.” So I did. I walked the beach and soothed my soul.


Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Create, Create, Create!

I have declared that this year of 2016 A.D. is the year of creating. Feel free to adopt this declaration for yourself. In fact, I hope you do!

Sooooo … in honor of my new declaration, here is my post for today. It’s an image I took last January of a young buck in our front yard. Having moved to a more urban area in May of last year, sadly we don’t see deer anymore. I sure miss them.

I simply decided to add some texture to this image and a frame. Create, create, create!

Remember to be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Before the Rain

Hello, beach fans! This image was taken right before the rain was rolling in. My daughter and my dog were frolicking on the beach at Pacific City, Oregon. I just love that place. I plan to spend much more time there with my “girls”

Free to Just Be

This is my daughter and my dog, Daisy, running on the beach at Pacific City, Oregon. It was the first time Daisy had ever experienced the ocean. She didn’t know quite what to make of it but soon adapted to running freely. It was amazing to watch. But what was even more amazing that I noticed when I uploaded this image is the look on Michele’s face. Free to just “be.”

The ocean has a way of calling to us, beckoning us to give our cares and worries over to it.  I did … and I plan to go there often to just “be.”  Namaste’

Black and White Challenge Day 1

I borrowed the black and white challenge from a fellow blogger who also lives in Central Oregon and this is my first installment of a week-long fulfillment.

Last November we had our first giant snowfall and this is what we saw when we opened the garage door after 2 1/2 days of the white stuff. Wonder what she was thinking after being born and raised in the desert?  Feel free to add your comments. Would love to hear what you think! Namaste’

Aspen Eye

Looking out of my dining room window, I noticed for the first time the all-seeing “eye” on one of the Aspen trees.  Now that I know it’s there and watching me, I will probably have to have conversations with it.  Please don’t call the guys in the white coats just yet, OK?  I’ll let you know how I and the “eye” get along.  Namaste’

Let It Snow

Hubby went downtown the day after Christmas and bought this really cool decoration that I put on the fireplace mantle …

12.28.14.SnowfallOops! Where were you, snow, when we were wishing for a white Christmas?

A couple of years ago I did the 365 project where I posted a photo a day on this blog.  Well … for 2015 I’ve decided to take on the 52-week challenge, so it looks like I’ll be posting a new photo once a week with my (sometimes crazy) narrative in accompaniment.  Stay tuned and thanks for following my blog.  I always look forward to your likes and comments.  Namaste’
