30 Minutes in the Life: June 2018

Growing up with an English grandmother living in our home, the ritual of tea drinking was a common place occurrence.  We did not drink coffee very often.  Moving to the USA, I quickly changed to drinking coffee but over the past few years I have reverted back to drinking tea. Recently my immediate supervisor at work retired, and the ladies in her leadership team…

30 Minutes in the Life: May 2018

For my 30 Minutes in the Life this month I am going to share a trip to the Loxahatchee National Park which is 15 minutes from where I live.  A quick, jump in the car and rush up in time to catch the sunset.  We have had a lot of rain and so it has made it difficult to get any photo’s recently. This…

30 Minutes in the Life: April 2018

All motor vehicles were kicked out of the neighborhood this past week in order to repave the road.  So the first day I went off to work, and when I came home it appeared that you could drive in.  All they had done was lifted the existing tar.  So I snuck in, rebel that I am lol.  However, that meant I had to be…

30 Minutes in the Life: March 2018

March 24th, and this is a culmination of 5 weeks of pain, 5 weeks of anger, 5 weeks of tireless planning, 5 weeks of being strong in the face of such devastating sorrow and heartbreak.  March 24th is the day that we marched for our Lives #Marchforourlives. I will confess upfront that my blog images are taken over more than 30 minutes but I…

30 Minutes in the life: February 2018

Valentines Day.  The day for red hearts, roses, chocolates and love! Valentines Day started out like that at Margory Stoneman Douglas High School, but by the end of the day, the red that that could be seen was the blood of children and their teachers.  Mowed down by a lunatic with an arsenal, which laws allowed him to collect.  Laws that at the age…

Thirty Minutes in the Life: October 2017

Knowing that I was going to have surgery, I took some time to go out and pre-shoot some images so that I would be able to keep up with my blogs.  Today I am sharing some images taken at the Butterfly World. I am always amazed at the beauty of creation.  Butterflies encompass that beauty and the unique creativity that we see in this…

30 Minutes in the Life: August 2017

A last minute suggestion of an overnight stay in Key West in preparation for my long enforced sabbatical on the bed, post surgery, was met with enthusiasm.  Off to Key West we were going. Friday we walked a lot and by the evening my feet were not feeling happy.  One year post the first surgery and the discomfort is still evident.  Healing it appears,…

30 Minutes in the Life: July 2017

In 2013, a number of photographers got together to form 30 Minutes in the Life.  A few years ago that morphed into Journey to Artist with the 30 minutes blog being a part of that group.  However, recently the Journey to Artist administrators felt the need to step away from the Facebook page and the blog group due to other commitments in their lives….

30 Minutes in the Life: May 2017

So you may or may not know that I flooded our house by accident the other day and the results were not pretty.  Suffice to say we are in the midst of a construction zone and I am over it.  Everywhere, there is dust. All the furniture is gathered in one room or in passageways.  Right now tiling is going on in the living…

30 Minutes in the Life: April 2017

As I mentioned in my last blog, I recently flooded the house.  The horror of the water quickly turned to Adrenalin as I threw towels all over the floor to try and dry up the inch deep water that was now going down the stairway.  Wet towels are not fun to pick up and having picked up at least 30 and the moving furniture…
