Welcome to my blog! Thanks for visiting!

I was born to catch dragons in their dens

And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days
— James Kavanaugh

summer grillin'

In laws were in town this weekend so dinner on the grill is all I had for a 365 shot. I do love summer grilling though. So easy and good and no pots to clean!

I'm on a Florabella Mink kick right now. It's so luscious.

"Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak."
— Margaret Weis

Ours bees are attracted to the little white blooms on this ground cover we have. The plants are just abuzz with many bees doing their daily work. I wanted to try to capture them but it made me wish I was faster and that I had a macro lens. This little guy was kind enough to face the camera.

Work is not always required. There is such a thing as sacred idleness.

Grabbed this shot on the way to an outdoor concert last night. Our summer Thursday night ritual. I have to go back and shoot some more on this bridge.

"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world."

-Marilyn Monroe

These are my favorite shoes. You can't tell in b&w but they are a fabulous brick red patent leather. You can't help but feel a little sexy in them. Even if you're having a fat day. Or, you know, a fat year.

“live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air” - Ralph WaldoEmerson

I wish I had gotten down lower for this shot. Ah well, you live, you learn. I do love the night sky though.
