I took this photo last night and though it's not the best photo, it captures a memory. I have a special connection to photographs....I mean, that sounds lame, everyone has a special connection to photographs, if we didn't we wouldn't have cameras on all our devices, right? I am a writer first and a photographer… Continue reading Making Memories & New Beginnings
This photo pretty accurately depicts how I feel after this weekends Birthday shenanigans. You might think I went hog-wild and hit all the clubs and drank myself stupid, hooked up with random men, got in fights, stayed up until dawn or any other number of things. Nope. Not today, Satan. The truth is, I did… Continue reading Post Birthday Weekend
My sister said something to me last weekend when we were birding just outside Houston at Brazos Bend State Park (where I took this photo) that has stuck with me. She said that it's been a lot of fun watching me learn how to live again. I've sat with that all week. I have learned… Continue reading Make a wish!

I'm sitting on the deck of a beach house, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, having just woken from a nap and feeling really relaxed. It's Sister Weekend.… Continue reading Sister Weekend 2.0
I took this photo on our most recent Sister Birding Adventure. My sister focuses on birds. Birds are her thing. Birds are my thing too, but so is landscape, shape, plants, insects, dead things...yes, I photograph the occasional dead thing, it's ok my sister doesn't get it either. I edited this photo and named it… Continue reading Spider Cactus?
Yesterday was another Sister Birding Adventure and Cheryl and I went to the Aransas Wildlife Refuge in Austwell, Texas. This wildlife refuge was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Harvey last Summer and we were thrilled to find them open. We both had our camera's and my sister had her monopod (I need one of those… Continue reading I wasn’t expecting that!
