No patterns needed... just my imagination

Feel grateful for the little moments...
Tired of chasing the big ones...

Living in the moment

Creating something new...

We're used to chasing the big moments,
but maybe the little ones matter more
because in order to see them,
we have to be present...

Feeling alive

Creativity has always been a big part of my life

 When your soul calls you home,
follow it to the edge of the earth.
It is only in living your life purpose,
that you will truly feel alive.

The gift of life

Playing with my camera

The most precious gifts are...
accepting others for who they
- accepting life as it is
- forgiveness for all
- silence

A design for beauty

I'm enjoying photographing things around my house. 

Live in the moment… 
Be guided by grace…
Pursue your dreams…
Look beyond appearances…
Feel the stirring in your soul…

Unconditional love

Playing in my kitchen...

Using different photo filters...

It may be hard to step back when you see your loved one
make mistakes, but mistakes are how they learn. 
Giving unsolicited advice or cleaning up their messes,
will only cripple their ability to succeed.
The kindest gift we can give to those we love 
is the freedom to live their own lives...

When we surrender to the fractured moments,
 we move through them with more ease...

A new season

If your life starts to dismantle,
just breathe and let it happen.
There is a season for all things.
When a season comes to an end,
it has fulfilled it’s purpose...

Blue skies...

I feel myself emerging from a cocoon 
that has sheltered me for a long time.
Now that I am becoming a beautiful butterfly, 
the sunlight is enticing me to come out and play.

The perfect answers

When you are no longer afraid,
you will choose the things 
that are right for you...

More window shopping...

Be mindful of your thoughts and actions.
You have the power to turn your life into 
a bad dream or a beautiful story.

Finding peace

Taking window photos...

Love the clouds...

...and the palms trees in the background

The greater the surrender, the greater the peace.
The more we let go of foolish ideas and ask for guidance, 
the more amazing life becomes...

Our life lessons

We can’t shield ourselves from the human experience,
but we can move more fluidly through life by 
practicing acceptance rather than struggle and resistance.
It’s helpful to remember that pain is the catalyst for softening our edges, 
expanding our hearts, and gaining wisdom…

Faith and gratitude

Photos from my garden 

I will never forget the day I first began to surrender my will. 
It took a mountain of pain to bring me to my knees.
 I was afraid, stubborn, and stuck. Pain was to be my teacher! 
I am grateful! It was suffering that opened me up to a life 
I would have otherwise, never knew existed...

Becoming whole again

To heal the past, we must tell our story… 
the story that breaks open us so completely 
that it brings us to our knees. 
When we release our sorrow, 
grace will renew us again.

Comforting thoughts

Photos taken in my home

In the garden of our soul,
we dig up our unworthiness 
and plant new seedlings:

Appreciating yourself

We all have special abilities. 
It can be our thirst for adventure, 
our compassion for others, 
or the peaceful rhythm in which 
we dance with life...

Thank you God...

 for helping me design a life of ease and grace,
for all the teachers you’ve placed in my path,
for helping me to see the world differently,
for filling my life with inspiration and love,
for the gentle nudges when I’ve gotten stuck, 
for letting me fall when I’ve needed to,
for the rainbows, as well as, the storms...

Becoming all that we are

The after-glow on a woman’s face
 after she releases her sorrows to the earth
is like a looking at a billion twinkling stars 
on a dark, solemn night...

The color of your world

Experimenting with a new photo app

When you surrender everything,
you will have nothing to lose.
When you have nothing to lose,
you will no longer be afraid.
When you are longer afraid, 
your life will be yours.

The amazing journey...

Our days become more joyful and fun
when we experience life through 
our hearts rather than our hurts...

Love to window shop... 
Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda

Our mind interprets things as right or wrong, good or bad... but is a poor translator. If we knew the truth about life, we would not only see how beautiful it is, we would joyfully hand our trust to it...

Seeing our beauty

 Our beauty is buried under
years of beliefs about ourselves
that are completely false...

Celebrating life

There will be times when life isn't easy, 
when you feel out of balance,
and fear overrides your peace,
but there will also be days when the
sounds of the world play the sweetest melody 
and you are immersed in the warmth 
of wonder...
