Inspired by Life: July 2018

This title could not be more apt this weekend as I learned about a friend of Richards who was in critical condition in ICU.  He is our age.  I keep saying, lets do, instead of talking about it.  Before it is too late and we cannot do it anymore.  I don’t want to let time pass us by. Fourth of July, and we decide…

Share Six: April 2018: Lines

The theme this month was chosen by Kim of Kim Sidwell Photography.  Sadly Kim has left us this month and we wish her well.  I know I am going to miss chatting and blogging with Kim.  The theme she chose was {Lines}. Lines … well lines on a paper and it is associated with homework.  Nope that is not going to work.  The blinds…

Inspired by Life: March 2018

In 1987 I stood in the grounds of the Dachau Concentration Camp and looked over the grounds beyond the first row of detention barracks and my breath was taken away and I was overwhelmed with what I saw.  Rows upon rows of concrete slabs filled the grounds in front of my eyes.  And my soul wept and my heart cried out for the loss…

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…

Tell me a Story: January 2018

Happy New Year – This is the first time we are posting in 2018.  I had a very busy start to the new year, rushing around showing our visitor the sights.  For downtime, while they were all sleeping, I took my macro lens and headed off to the wetlands.  I just wanted to do some walking and see how much I could manage.  Walking…

30 Minutes in the Life: January 2018

Can you believe it –  we are almost at the end of January.  This has been a busy couple of months for us.  Amy came back from her 2 years with the Peace Corp and along with her came her boyfriend, Daniel.  So since mid December we have been trying to show him something of South Florida.  Today I am going to share my…

Lynne is our newest member, joining us at the end of November.  She chose the theme this month and I cannot wait to see what everyone shares.  Her choice was {Winter Light}. This past week Richard,…

2017 Reflections

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope…

Tell me a Story: December 2017

It is hard to believe that we are closing out 2017.  I am not sure where the year went.  I know that I spent 3 months on the bed recovering from surgery.  Prior to that I was still recovering from the previous years surgery which took a long time to heal and a long time before I was able to get out and about. …

2017: Capturing the Year P52: Themed Images

Capturing the year is a group that I first met up with on a Flickr P52.  When that group stopped this group started up and I transitioned over to the new group.  This is the second year I have done a P52 with them.  This particular group works on themes, and so you have to give thought to what images you are going to…
