Flower of the Day

“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.”

~ William Barclay

 

I believe one of the reasons why I was born was to be a mother and a photographer.  I think there is more to the photography part that I am yet to discover.

Have you discovered why you were born? If not too personal, please share.

Fairies all around us

These are not actually fairies but termites. Before they settled down on this tree stump, they were fluttering all around looking faries…..sometimes my imagination can be very vivid for 52 year “young” woman.

Termites can reek much havoc on a home by causing hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in damage to the structure of the property.

In spite of this, I will still consider them fairies for this post.

What Would You Ask??

For the past 10 years (or more) I have been working on a book called “Reflections for My Soul”.  This book shows the emotions that I experienced while dealing with a Stage 1 Breast Cancer diagnosis at the age of 34 and then again at 37 and how I was able to save my “soul/sanity” through photography.  This blog was created to go along with the book.

I finished the book so many times and I never seem to be able to move forward to the publishing phase.  It never seemed “good enough”, or it was  “too sad” or “pictures aren’t perfect”.  There was always a reason as to why it did not truly get finished.

I have vowed that I will be publishing “Reflections for My Soul”  no later that January 2018.  In order for me to keep this vow I need your help.  You ask how can you help? Well that is easy.  What I need are questions that you would ask or were hesitant to ask a person going through and surviving a health threat.  No question is to invasive or irrelevant.

“Reflections for My Soul” will not be a pity party type of book but one that shows how I saved my soul/sanity through photography.

Once I get your questions I will answer them within my story and hopefully have one or two of you to review it and give me your opinion on things to change or to let me know it works.

Please bring on the questions!

As always thank you for visiting!

A Meeting At the Watering Hole

At my mother’s house she has a bird bath and everyday the bird bath is full of bees.

There is nothing pedestrian about this scene.  The bees move in such an excited frenzy.

Quote of the Day

“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.”

These two here are always fussing.  You would never believe that one is 11 and the other 4.  They argue as if they are the same age.  I tell Caila all the time “Why are you having an argument with a 4-year-old?”.  She never has an answer.

I like how I was finally able to capture a peaceful moment between them without being directed to “be nice”.

And There He Is!!

Friday my grandson, Arai, had his Pre-K graduation ceremony (due to his birthday he will be doing another year of Pre-K).  Although it was a small service visibility was limited, since the graduates were short.  However, I was able to capture his GREAT smile between a couple of out of focused parents.
