"Imagine all the people living life in peace.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
I hope some day you'll join us,
and the world will live as one."
John Lennon


"Love me, love me, love me, say you do;
Let me fly away with you.
For my love is like the wind,
and wild is the wind."
David Bowie

First practice of 2016.


Winter on the pond.


Here's to blank pages & new adventures.

"Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear or feel it when it comes to us. Let's not be afraid to receive each day's surprise; weather it comes to us as sorrow or as joy it will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humainty."
Henri Nouwen


Treasure on a bridge.

 {faceless fun}

The promise of anonymous - few things delight me more than geting "lost" in the woods.


The magical, macro world of moss growing on a stone wall. 
Nature's details never cease to amaze me.

"City sidewalks, busy sidewalks,
Dressed in holiday style.
In the air there's
A feeling of Christmas."

There's the hint of a reflection in this Paris café window
on a beautiful, sunny day in 1994.
This city was our home for twelve years.
Other than stateside grandparent visits,
all of my babies' childhood memories live here.

My heart aches for Paris.
For all of those who know the terror that comes
when the sanctity and security of the place they call home
is shattered.

I'm so grateful for our cherished, Parisian memories.
For family and friends and all who will get an extra hug this week.
And I mourn with those who can no longer hug their own.

"La reconnaissance est la mémoire du coeur."

"We all live under the same sky,
but we don't all have the same horizon."
Konrad Adenaur

Of late,
I find that when my horizon seems
or dreary,
a walk out my front door with my camera
adjusts my perspective.
Whether it's the leaf holding raindrops on the hood of our car,
or the rain saturated leaf that's fallen to rest on our deck,
focusing on the simplest of details
reminds me of the wealth of beauty that
is all around me.
