Farewell to Avalon

This post is for my fellow Misfits, Mavericks & Wayshowers, with whom I shared a most wonderful online retreat from Glastonbury in the UK. I do believe the energy from this amazing place spoke to me, because within an hour of the ending of our gathering, these words landed in a ‘packet’ within my Being. I have struggled with the idea of sharing them, … Read More Farewell to Avalon


Change is Upon us

In keeping with the new way we must all now live, my blog is changing. Although I still plan to share some of my photography, my focus will shift more to writing. Writing about this new reality that surrounds us and seems to invade every minute of our day.  I am truly lost in this new world. Like a fish flopping around on shore, … Read More Change is Upon us

I want to offer something meaningful to … Read More New beginnings to old dreams

In pursuit of beauty

After months of feeling totally uninspired, photographically speaking, I’m back on track again, leaning in a slightly different direction. I wonder if you too are looking for something new for inspiration? For each of us, I’m sure it will be a different story, but for me, I think the reason I’ve been struggling with my photography is a lack of specific direction and inner … Read More In pursuit of beauty


A letter to my dog

My dear Shelby, Have I told you what a fabulous dog you are? I may have forgotten lately, you might even think I’ve been a little cranky….  and it could have something to do with your new hobby of barking incessantly at absolutely nothing every time you go outside. I’m not sure what you are thinking – perhaps you are just so excited about … Read More A letter to my dog
