VD is upon us….again.

Oh Valentine's Day.  Here you are again - you little Bastard.  You may remember the photo above from a post from January of last year.  It spoke to me then because it was a metaphor for my heart.  My tender, fragile heart surrounded in spikes to keep everyone out to ensure I wouldn't get hurt… Continue reading VD is upon us….again.

Forgiveness

The word forgiveness is at the forefront of my thoughts today. It's still early on this lazy Saturday morning.  I've walked the dog, did the yoga and am settled in with a cup of coffee and my laptop to do some journaling.  Then I realized something. I'm not angry anymore. Tomorrow will be February 3rd,… Continue reading Forgiveness

Feelings, Man!

The past several months have been some of the most fun of my entire life.  I mean it's been a combination of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Exhale and Sex & The City (The first one, not that awful sequel) all rolled into one.  I've had dates, I've made friends, I've made Friends with… Continue reading Feelings, Man!

Christmas 2018

I woke up this morning with John Lennon's Christmas Song in my head.  "So this is Christmas and what have you done? Another year over, a new one just begun." It's hard to wake up on December 25th and not think of all the Christmas' spent when the ex and I were married, as we… Continue reading Christmas 2018

It’s been a minute

I've been seeing, reading, and saying this motto recently Getting divorced sucks. Being divorced doesn't. I know, it's been a minute since I last wrote a blog post.  I was really good there for a while, writing and publishing a post every week.  Then The Gentleman happened.  I'm no longer Single & Selfish....well, no longer… Continue reading It’s been a minute

Thrive where you are planted

Often over the past two years I sometimes found myself questioning why things went down the way they did. I have had times of quietly (sometimes not so quietly) demanding why God/The Universe/The Creator dumped a steaming pile of shit in my lap that I was solely in charge of cleaning up. Why suddenly at… Continue reading Thrive where you are planted

Don’t miss opportunity while you’re waiting for the next thing

I love wildlife photography.  When I got my camera everyone was asking if I was going to do portraits.  People.  Photographing families, proms, babies, graduations, engagement photos, etc.  No, no and finally no.  I take pictures because I love the process and that treasure hunt.  I have zero desire to make anyone else happy but… Continue reading Don’t miss opportunity while you’re waiting for the next thing

AVD Anti Valentine’s Day

It's the day before Valentine's Day. I don't want to be sad, but a small part of me is. I keep telling myself Valentine's Day is a made up holiday created by the greeting card companies and chocolate manufacturers.  It's bullshit. It's also Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras.  We have a concert downtown with Cajun food… Continue reading AVD Anti Valentine’s Day

Spider Cactus?

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?

When you think all is ruined….beauty

I've mentioned in previous blogs that I'm becoming a rather geeky camera nerd.  My sister is quite the photography artist - you can check her out at The Back Yard Bird Nerd and we really enjoy going on photography adventures from sun up to sun down, all over the wonderful nature centers and parks we… Continue reading When you think all is ruined….beauty
