The last year spent in a strange town was difficult to describe until I took a step back and came home. I spoke mostly in photos and mostly to strangers. I left many of my family members and friends behind. Now that I’m home I realize the space between us was always there, the distance […]
Our adorable neighbor cat Oliver has been visiting us the last few weeks. This photo was snapped the first day we met!
I forgot to blog last month! Dang you February, always throwing me off with your shortness. What gives? Anyhow, here I am a few days late with not much new to report. I’ve been working and driving on these crazy winter roads dreaming of my move across the country that will hopefully occur in a […]
Make that re-visitation. I wandered through the cemetery today (through the piles of snow) I figured I better get some shots before the next round of storms hits Monday. I made two amazing discoveries today. At the bottom of one of my favorite statues I found this odd little thing I never noticed before, a […]
It’s winter now and everything is frozen but I can already sense the future melt. I know new things are bubbling to the surface for me. I got this horoscope last month The right people will show up at the right time to open doors you never thought possible. Don’t be afraid to reach out […]
I took these shots on a little walk around Exchange Park and nearby Fairview Cemetery late this afternoon… Some pretty neat results! All respect to those names and graves I captured. I used to go to the cemetery as a child and ride my bike down the large hills with my childhood best friend. We […]
We saw some wintery sights on our walk the other day…
I’ve been busy baking a few more batches of cupcakes, taking care of a sick man, shoveling a snowy staircase and drawing, of course! I am at 10/12 for the month and with it about to turn over to day 13 I have some catching up to do! I have a few other exciting announcements […]
These were both taken last winter as so far this year we haven’t had much snow here…
A few shots from this lovely December day. It’s so strange this weather we’ve been having in jolly old Iowa. Happy solstice & winter holidays!
These shots are of fireworks from a summer or so ago but I figured we could all use a little warming up. Snuggle in and enjoy all your holiday celebrations this season!
I’m planning many projects for this shivery month of December. I have to get gifts on an unemployed person’s budget ($0) and do holiday baking/cooking… Somewhere in there I am going to teach myself to draw (better) and make illustrations for my novel chapters/cover. If I can get it together I am going to karaoke […]
I met this friendly or agitated fellow the other day. He made strange sounds in response to my camera shutter. I am busy working away at the novel, over 4,800 words in two days! Enjoy these shots of my squirrel friend and look for the link to my novel coming soon!
