Onward into the Spring of 2020

Spring during the time of coronavirus.  I find myself with all sorts of mixed thoughts.   I've been immersed with work stuff, reorganizing closets, the kitchen, buying a new mop to tackle the floors, Zoom gatherings, webinars, etc.  Here in the 23rd day of "shelter in place" what seems to comfort…

Zigzagging into the Roaring 2020s

I photographed this image of myself last June.  It was the day before I suffered a pulmonary embolism. (a blockage in the lungs)  One out of three people dies from embolisms.  Mine peaked in a swollen leg.  I had walked five miles on that day and was feeling fine.  The next day…

The Mighty Sea always changing

The mighty sea always reminds me of beauty and turmoil in my life.  Life's been bumpy what can I say;  however, it's surrounded by puffs of grace and so much gratitude. I pulled this photo out this morning and my heart skipped a beat.  I suppose it always does when…

Shifting days temper my moods

I realize just as I started settling into the hot sun on my bare legs and I embraced a more accepting demeanor riding the bus with other sweat-bodied individuals - I was forced to shift yet again with the arrival of the fog-filled air. I was so getting comfortable with those…

Renewal Around the Corner

Autumn has always been a season of quirky shifts for me. The winds remind me that changes are comin; the air can be balmy and/or windy and of late, signal light rain.   I walked out yesterday and held my head back to catch the raindrops on my face. This may…
