A Green Day/Photography

There are no coincidences in life. All too often we sit around, waiting for those events we deem “miracles”. The problem seems we have our expectation set only for maximum result when the small miracles are the ones that can fill our moment to moment life with such joy- simply and beautifully.

Remnant/Poetry

Remnant Autumn’s chill crept over the glorious Summer of her heart. Sweet kiss of pink drained from the face of love as thorns sprang up like daggers to cut into her soul. Crimson flooded her being as she faced the icy Winter of his Indifference. Awaiting death, she longed to bury her pain beneath the dry brown carpet of decaying hope. Sweet torture!  that wound which does not heal lest its life be thought in vain. No death, passing into love born anew- No blush of pink, no green glory basking in the light of Spring’s happy smile. Forever crimson, … Continue reading Remnant/Poetry

Theming My Life

In hues of blazing orange and earthen brown Autumn spreads like a warm blanket across a rapidly chilling world. No more do tiny dragons fly about my yard, spreading faerie dust across the garden and pausing so that I may capture their smiles. In their place have come the colorful magicians of transitional Autumn wonder. As they flutter their spotted wings a great drowsiness covers the meadow, yard, field and garden before the harsh Winter shows its icy grin through sheets of frozen raindrops. All too soon they will sleep beneath the blanket of the Bleak Season. What shall I … Continue reading Theming My Life

They arrive ready to perform, as if on cue,   but the curtain falls all too quickly, ending my delight. My soul applauds! If I am lucky, I can capture their essence for a fleeting moment  so that I may remember… and … Continue reading Bee Happy!

World of Wooden Boats…the Festival in Madisonville, LA

Welcome to Madisonville! Here in this oak lined, slow-paced city in Louisiana is where the annual Wooden Boat Festival is hosted yearly in early Autumn.  Although I am a native of Louisiana and have spent a better part of my adult life here, I have only just this weekend had the pleasure of making it to the festival.  In my defense, this IS hurricane season; and past thoughts of attending were thwarted by the appearance of sudden storms, cold fronts and any number of “child emergencies”, including, but not limited to, school functions.  Now that my husband and I are … Continue reading World of Wooden Boats…the Festival in Madisonville, LA

Welcome Autumn!! How Happy I Am

Thanks to the tropical storm that didn’t become a big, bad hurricane, we have been enjoying cooler temperatures here in the land of moss and mosquitoes.  I awoke to a nippy 62 degrees this morning and couldn’t wait to get dressed, grab my camera and head out for a walk. I felt surely all of nature must be as relieved as I was at the drop in temperature.  I didn’t even mind the few initial goosebumps that traveled up my bare shins where my cropped pants stopped short. They soon became a memory as I felt the sun on my … Continue reading Welcome Autumn!! How Happy I Am
