friday’s musing…

Can’t seem to come out of this fog. I feel like I could sleep an eternity but having slept so much yesterday and last night I really don’t want to miss out on daytime and all that it brings. Light, warmth, bird sings, doing small chores trying to write, draw and read. Anything to feel like I’m living. This tiredness is like a heavy blanket that covers me. I can’t shrug it off. All I want to do is bury myself in it. For now though I’ll just be. On my screen in porch with the birds and morning light.

friday’s musings…

Happy Friday all.. it’s been quite a week but I’m sitting on the porch,
sipping coffee and listening to the birds
while the smell of the woods and flowers surround me..
truly healing.

monday’s musings…

last week she came home to visit me for 4 days
and as usual we had lots of laughs, food and conversation.

already looking forward to seeing her 
either for my wedding or christmas, which may very well
end up happening around the same time. 

i can’t wait to have her has my maid of honor 🙂

When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”

Here’s another one for my “Stranger’s I have known” series..

Please meet Troy..

We met last week while I was eating an early dinner in Portland at a great restaurant called Sonny’s. We started chatting and came to find out he is co-owner of a Portland General Store, a very nice personal care products line for men. You can find them here.

Troy also told me about a great book that would fit perfectly with what is going on in my life right now. It’s called “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor E. Frankl. I’ll be picking this up and reading it for sure.

I have to say with just having two stranger’s I photographed and met, I am by far richer then I was before I started this project. I can’t wait to see who else I’ll meet and while I will learn.

~ peace ~

Seeing in Black and White..

It’s been raining here over the last few days which has kind of put me into a black and white kind of mood. It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve been able to edit photos due to being sick from chemo and in that time I realized I haven’t done much B&W. While I haven’t been able to edit I have been able to peruse other photographers images, mainly B&W and boy how I love them and miss doing them.. they create a different sentiment then color and can turn images towards a new direction not seen before. Yesterday I was finally able to edit for a bit and had done so in B&W. I’m thinking I need to do this more.. hope you enjoy these various scenes as much as I do..
