But it rained


Back in April I saw this scene and pulled over to get a couple of pics. In August when I drove by it again, it was all dried up. No boat and not even a mucky patch, and yet it rained a fair amount this summer. Maybe the stream got diverted, or it was from snow melt, or the owner is filling the area in, or the sandier soil just allowed the water to percolate away. It was such a nice roadside scene. Next spring I will make the ride again and see if it is back, or gone for good.


Share Your World Sept 11, 2017

Would you want $200,000 right now or $250,000 in a year? It’s safe to assume all money is tax free. Hmmmm, I guess I would take the 200K now since next year is not guaranteed.

Is it more important to love or be loved? To be loved, that way you can “learn” to love others as a baby learns.

List things that represent abundance to you. Freedom, fresh air, water and food, nature, people to laugh with, good health, the ability to help others, work I enjoy.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Planning for maybe getting another studio.


IMG_3971It was a spur of the moment “yes” that got me out Saturday evening to get some sunset pictures. My daughter said “Let’s go!”, I hesitated thinking of the task I was just about to start. Then I seized the moment and went. It was great, we haven’t been able to do as much recently with work and life. I knew she really wanted to show me her sunset viewing spots, and I made the time. Well worth it, plus we saw sheep!

When the tide goes out


This tide pool is set high above the shore in a scoured out space that gives it bowl like setting. It didn’t smell very good, but sure made a nice image. After my statement about needing to spend some time at the shore I actually did it. Rate for me, as I can make a million excuses that other things need attending to. This time I followed through with my desire for a day away. It was a family outing too, which are waning fast as the girls take on their adult lives. But, we did go and enjoyed a day away though the tide was out.
