Not exactly white and fluffy, but full of character.  Hope you had a blessed Easter!

Easter Sheep

Portland, Oregon.

Quote of the day: “Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” —  Marcus Aurelius

Daily gratitudes:
A lovely family dinner
A gorgeous spring day
My girl
Late afternoon walks
Looking like an angel
The scent of daffodils

It looks as if the earth is undulating beneath its splotches of sagebrush.

The Texture of the Hills

Routt County, Colorado.

Quote of the Day: “You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.” – Cassandra Clare

Daily gratitudes:
How Kelsea makes me laugh
Not having to wear a coat tonight
Closet cleaning
Snuggly Thunder Cat

Light in old buildings, on old things. Magical.

Inside Old Baldy

Bald Head Island, North Carolina.

Quote of the Day: “Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is also darkness.The question is, will one give in to the darkness or the light?”  —  Morgan Rhodes

Daily gratitudes:
Kelsea comes home tomorrow
Thinking of writing
That Boots the Dog was found and is home!
That my niece cooked tonight

When you are a photographer, it changes how you look at the world. You can look at something straight on, seeing it for what it is. Then you look beyond it, seeing it within the context of its background. And then, you look at it with a certain intimacy, seeing the details and inner character. And if you’re lucky, you can capture something beautiful in all three views. I know there are more ways of looking at a scene or a thing, but these are the first things that come to mind.


Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “Fear is a great crippler of creativity and great invention.” —  Peter Horlamilaycon

Daily gratitudes:
A hint of spring returning
Watching the scenery on the bus this morning
Fresh furrows in the Three Leaf Farm field
Hope for marriage equality

Spring seems to be oversleeping in Colorado because it’s COLD and I need to remember that there are places like this that I can get to in less than a day. That’s a comfort, isn’t it?

Cow Wreck Beach, Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.”  — Willa Cather

Daily gratitudes:
A roof over my head
Doing gratitudes when it’s hard
Dried roses
Busy house spirits

I have been quiet and uninspired of late, not wanting to write, to create, to do anything but read, and I do not know why. I do not feel like myself, and hope that it is only indicative of the passage of seasons, winter into spring, and that I will wake again to myself soon.

Anegada Sunset

Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.”  —  Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Daily gratitudes:
Cozy snowed-in Saturdays
MKL’s voice
The songs of new birds
Snuggly Thunder Cat
Trying to emerge from my shadow

This was taken on our first Mother-Daughter Labor Day trip six years ago. We had a wonderful time, and Kelsea wandered into many places she shouldn’t have.  She’s her mother’s daughter.

A View From Alcatraz

Alcatraz Island, San Francisco, California.

Quote of the day: “Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.”  — Albert Camus

Daily gratitudes:
MKL’s spirit
Being only sprained, not broken
The sound of snow falling
Smoked oysters
Unfamiliar songbirds, just passing through

A much-missed, familiar view….

Setting Point, Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that’s important—you know ” —  Marilyn Monroe

Daily gratitudes:
Pigeons with pizza crusts
A rose for my love
Spring approaching
Staying hopeful

I’m not sure if he was saving a seat for me or for himself, but really, he was there first.

Harry Saves A Seat

Anna Maria Island, Florida.

Quote of the day: “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”  —  Mother Theresa

Daily gratitudes:
How Kelsea can make me laugh
The shine in MKL’s eyes when we look at each other
Beautiful days


Bunnies live in the alley behind my Bungalow.  I can’t say exactly where, because that would be divulging their secrets, and I’m not one to share bunny secrets.

When I emerge from the Bungalow in the mornings, there”s usually one near my truck, and it races around wildly trying to figure out where to hide.

Today, it crawled under a little tiny gap between the ground and the bottom of the garage door.

Who knows how many more bunnies are living in there??

I am now captivated by this vision of myself entering the garage and being faced with a million bunnies, like “The Trouble with Tribbles” episode from the old Star Trek.

Maybe two bunnies have been in there, doing what bunnies do.

Oh, dear.

Let’s not leave you with that image.

Let’s leave you with Roger.

Yes, enjoy Roger.
