Share Six: May 2020: Simplicity

How does it get to be May already?  Half our year has gone and we are sitting at home watching it go by.  I hope you are all surviving the stay at home period.  This month Lynne chose the theme {Simplicity} and that works for me.

On my last trip to the grocery store to get bread and milk, I bought some tulips.  They are simple yet beautiful flowers.  They don’t last long and I bought three bunches of them.  The sad part is, like roses, they die way to quickly.

Each bud is is perfect in it’s simplicity and design

I love how this bud has opened up so that we can see the stigma of the plant so clearly.

Simplicity at it’s best.

Tell me a story: April 2020

I apologize to my other bloggers, last month was crazy with the whole switch to working from home and trying to come up with new scenarios on how to meet clients.  Hello telemedicine, but it certainly has been a journey.

We are still on the stay at home status, and so there is not a lot to photograph. Maybe I should be doing one a day but somehow I spend most of the day at my computer working.

Friday last week, I decided that I needed to get some vitamin D, and headed out to the deck to try and grab a little bit of sunshine.  While the weather is hot, it is really overcast and there is not a lot of sun grabbing going on.  Once the deck clouded over, I picked up my macro and decided to walk around our small garden and see what captured my attention.  Here are a few things from the garden.

Thank you for joining me this month as we spend time sharing another day in our lives.  Days are not overly exciting right now, but I would rather do this and stay safe than go out and end up getting sick.

This is a circle blog.  Take some time to view what the other artists have for you this month. My friend LUPJi Photography is up next and I can’t wait to read what he has to share.

30 Minutes in the Life: April 2020

In the 2020….. (How does the song go “In the year 2525, if man is still alive
If woman can survive ~ Zager, Evens”).  Earlier today I saw someone added an “in the year 2020…” a Facebook post with the idea that this would come up in their memories.

So what does Corona Virus Stay at home look like for you?  For me, it is still work as normal, in fact a little more than normal, but it has to be done so I am going to do it.

Richard has his office downstairs, I have my office upstairs.  Hoodini (the quaker parakeet I rescued) is moved out of my office into the spare room every morning, Ms Moo sits at the closed door whining to get in and Sims just ignores everyone and everything.  That is us, day in and day out, work and Zoom meetings make up my days.  Sunday evening we have managed to set up a Zoom games evening with the kids who are not close by.  It adds a little variety.  When necessary I will go to the shop, but so far I have managed to keep that to once a week.  I have been out of the house a total of 6 times in the last 5 weeks.

So for this month, my 30 minutes is really my editing time.  I thought I would get us on the road again.  We traveled a fair bit the last two years, and I found I was not able to keep up with the editing on all the trips.  Today I am going to go back to Maine, and a charming town that I got to visit with a friend.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0810

My friend Karen had married and moved to New Hampshire a few years ago.  When we decided to go up that way I connected with her to see if we could meet.  I also knew she spent a lot of time hiking in New Hampshire and I thought I would pick her brains on where to go.  She went one step further.  She decided to drive through to Maine and we went on a road trip.  First to the Ogunquit Musuem, then stopped by a lighthouse, then drove through to Portsmouth.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0811

This is a quaint little seaside town.  All of them are quaint to me.  Not sure how little they are though.  But for me the immediate town was so interesting.  I love the old brownstone buildings and the cobblestone pavers or brick sidewalks.  Today was an overcast day but luckily when we arrived in Portsmouth it stopped raining.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:9768

The first stop was at a small street side bar called Portsmouth Gas Light Co, for lunch.  Of course, when in the north we had to have lobster rolls (and this was a first for me, both being in the north and the lobster rolls).  Karen and I shared and I can promise you that was more than enough food.  When I compare it to the ridiculous lobster roll we got in New York, this is amazing.  It tasted it good, and it was super filling.  Added to that we were able to indulge in the local brew.  I am a Heineken kind of person, and they were able to come up with a brew that matched my taste.  If you are in town, I highly recommend stopping by.   

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0826

Another favorite of mine is street art, and we managed to find a few interesting murals to capture our attention.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0827

Walking the city was fun, and we soon headed down to the Piscataqua River that separates Portsmouth, New Hampshire from Kittery, Maine.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0834

We found a beautiful garden square that was a riot of color, carefully planned out and very appealing to the eye.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0835

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0837

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0840

We continued on crossing one of the local traffic bridges and walk along the waters edge enjoying the beautiful sites in front of us.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0844

The image below caught my attention because of the beautiful reflections in the water.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0845

We landed up along a quay of yachts and fishing boats which may or may not have been situated on North Mill Pond.  It’s been over a year, what can I say.  The bridge in the image is called the Memorial Bridge and it is a vertical lift bridge.  This bridge allows commercial boats to pass through.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0847

This bridge replaced an earlier built bridge that spanned this river from 1923 to 2012.  On the original bridge there was a plaque that read “Memorial to the Sailors and Soldiers of New Hampshire who gave their lives in the World War 1917–1919.”  This plaque was moved to the newly built bridge.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0849

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0858

We headed down to the Strawberry Banke Museum, side stepping into a historical grave site area.  I am a big fan of wandering through, reading the different tombstones.  I love history and these tombstones were very interesting in design.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:

The tombstone about was that of Capt Tobias Lear who died November 6th, 1781.  According to the notes found on an onsite notice board, “Lear was a mariner of Portsmouth whose home, now a historic site, is a few blocks from Point of Graves on Hunkering Street.  His son Tobias Jr, Served as President George Washington’s private secretary.  The elder Lear’s gravestone was carved by John Homer and displays the realistic skull and cross bones for which he is known“.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0866

Another one that had clear writings on was the tombstone of Mary Blagdon. The tombstone says “Here lies the body of Mrs Mary Blagdon wife to Doc. Samuel Blagdon Aged 75 years.  Died Dec y 11th 1735.  I found the images on the tombstone interesting and wondered who chose the design on this woman’s tombstone.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:

We passed the South Meetinghouse on Macy Street.  The building of this beautiful building was completed in 1866, and in those days cost $9,600-00 to complete.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0879

We walked down some side streets and this stairway caught my attention with all it’s number plates on it.  It certainly was creative, as was the front door of another house we passed.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0880

We found two new friends (for a short period of time) sunning themselves outside now that the rain had gone.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:

We walked passed some alley ways where I captured this beautiful spiral staircase.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0890

And then we were back at the water’s edge, having walked along a boardwalk of restaurants.  I loved looking at the tug boards and fire rescue boats.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0896

In the distance we could see the Memorial Bridge we had walked past earlier.  We were on the other side of the bridge looking down towards it.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 9776

In the opposite direction is the stunning Piscataqua River Bridge which spans the Piscataqua River.  The bridge connects Portsmouth. New Hampshire with Kittery, Maine.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:

The bridge has 6 lanes and arches high above the river, eliminating the need for a lift bridge for boats.  The structure is this incredible mass of metal work that is absolutely stunning.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 9445

Thank you for joining me for 30 Minutes in the Life, and for traveling with me through this this small but oh so interesting seaside town. I hope you enjoyed getting out and about with me.  I look forward to the day we can pack up the suitcase and head out again.  I am still holding out hope for my Eastern European trip in August. 

Just a reminder that this is a circle blog.  I would encourage you to take some time to visit my very talented friend Janet of Janet Crouch Photography and see what she has for you this month.  Check out her Facebook  and Instagram pages as well.

Share Six: April 2020: Imperfection

This month Ceri  of Ceri Herd Photography chose the theme {Imperfection}.   The dictionary says that imperfection is the state of being faulty or incomplete.

I love fresh flowers.   Flowers make me happy.  I love the vibrant colors, the smells, the perfection of new flowers.  Flowers bring a smile to my face and this is definitely one of my love languages

What I don’t love that they don’t last forever.  I have had this bunch of flowers drying out downstairs for the past two weeks so that I can photograph them in their imperfect state – dried out crinkled and looking beyond repair.  Yet in their state of imperfection, there is still something that appeals to me.  There is a different kind of beauty albeit imperfect.

Imperfection: April 1, 2020: 0115

Imperfection: April 1, 2020: 0211

Right now we are looking at an imperfect world. There is very few places in the world that have not been affected by this virus.  The USA has 278 458 positive cases of Corona Virus.  By the time this goes live I have to wonder how close we will be to 300 000. (I will add in a piece here.  From I time I wrote this to now is a space of 10 hours.  The number has not only reached but surpassed 300 000.   It is now this morning sitting at 312 345.)  The US has surpassed the rest of the world for positive cases.  The death toll sits at 8438 and it still has to peak. I have not seen an update yet on the death toll this morning, but it will climb, it is just a matter of time, and how many.  

Imperfection: April 1, 2020: 0212 Imperfection: April 1, 2020: 0214

And yet in this imperfect world, there are levels of perfection.  The medical staff across the world are worthy of being hailed as an element of perfection in this world.  No person is perfect, but when I look at how the medical staff have rallied to the call that is perfection in my eyes.  Those men and women who have selflessly stepped up and answered a call, that is perfection for me.  Those medical men and women who have gone above and beyond their call of duty, going into situations with one thought – to save a life.  I respect and admire and salute these men and women for their courage, their dedication and the willingness to give their all, including their lives, for this imperfect world.

Imperfection: April 1, 2020: 0223

Imperfection: April 1, 2020: 0225

I look at our own medical staff, who are not on the front lines, but are willing to see women who may need answers, despite the risk to themselves.  They have stepped up been counted, and while they may have worried about their health, have still come into the clinic each day to serve those women who still come looking for help.  I admire these women.  They are perfection in an imperfect world.

There is beauty in the imperfection, we just need to look beyond the outer appearance.  Look deeper at what lies beneath.  Look for the good in all of the bad.  Look for moments of perfection in spite of the imperfection.

As we continue to watch the world, isolated in our homes, I pray that you are safe and continue to stay safe.

30 Minutes in the Life: March 2020

It is 30 Minutes in the Life, and if you are wondering, my 30 Minutes was not at the beach.  Since March 13, I feel like I have been on a 25 hour call.  Why? My real job is working with Policies & Procedures, Written Plans, Quality Control, training, and such other things that may be assigned, for Medical Clinics.  And yes, we are most definitely impacted by the changes the world is seeing.

I am tired, but so are many others. This 30 Minutes I wanted to look at the contrast in life – what does that look like, and where do we go from here.

For so long life has been kind of rosy.  The last Flu pandemic, according to the CDC, was in 1918.  Almost 100 years ago.  I feel like we have become complacent and unprepared.  I understand, we do not want thousands of ventilators sitting around for 100 years.  However, it feels like society has been slow to respond to what is going on around us.

On any given day, our lives are sunny and rosy and off to the beach we go.  All these image are taken at Orchard Beach in Maine.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0533

But we don’t know what lurks around the corner.  China was slow to get the news out that things had turned dark, and that they were struggling with something that was rapidly becoming beyond their control. Limited information came out until the situation be came so dire that they were overwhelmed with what they are dealing with.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0536

The rest of the world carried on as normal, enjoying life, living what essentially is part of the social norm.  We head out to restaurants, we go to the beach, we cluster as folks are often want to do.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:

It was only when Italy started to show signs of panic that the rest of the world opened up their eyes and started to take notice.  And when Italy’s days became bleak, finally the rest of the world sat up and said perhaps we should do something about it.  The information I kept reading seemed unbelievable and disturbing.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0538

But the world was slow in responding, we carried on as normal.  Around mid March, our offices, began to look at the what if, and a meeting was called to plan for the what if.  What if we have to shut down, do we have a pandemic plan in place, do we have policies and procedures in place?  Do we have a pandemic plan?  Can you draft up one?  Beyond that what does it look like to have staff working from home?  What does it look like to run medical clinics on limited staff? Can we go virtual?  I am grateful that our office was forward thinking and we began to seriously plan for the potential future.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0541

As the devastating news came out of Italy and the numbers began to increase, and the horror of  living with a pandemic really looks like when you are not prepared for the impact of it, begins to seep in.  What hospitals look like when they are overcrowded.  When people are sleeping on the floor because there is no beds for them. What medical staff have to endure when they are working 24 hours on call and they are watching, not only 1 or 2, but thousands of people dying.  When morgues and crematoriums cannot keep up with the death rate.  When churches start to store the coffins and the bodies lie waiting for when their loved ones can bury them.  When medical personnel are required to choose who can live or die.  My heart breaks.  It breaks for each and every person fighting for the life of someone who may die, or more than likely will die.  My heart aches for the medical staff’s family, who do not know if they will see their loved one again.  Children who cannot see their parents.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0546

And yet here in the USA it is business as usual. While leaders indicate that there is a problem, it does not appear that they are ready to make some hard choices.  Spring breakers still hit the beaches in Florida because it is their right to do so, forcing the state to close parks and beaches.  Restaurants are shut down except for take out.  I worry about the possibility of workers being contagious.  People head out on the Intracoastal on their boats, with little regard for the potential that they may be carriers.  It is their right, and besides it does not appear that their age group is not dying, although stats coming in show that the virus is moving across age groups.  They may not be dying, they are right, but they may be killing their grandparents, or parents.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018:

The USA is slow on the uptake.  It seemed that it was viewed more as a hoax and then as something we would be over soon.  March 20, the numbers were around 8500 people who were tested positive for the virus.  While I understand that there was limited testing in the early days, and a scrambling for the necessary equipment and testing kits, over the past 10 days the numbers have escalated to 105, 470 (as I am writing this).  The death toll is 1590.  This is no longer a joke or something that will die down in a few days.  We no longer have control of the virus. The situation is bleak.  Working from home is not what folks may think it is.  Working from home, for me, this past 12 days has felt like a 25 hour day – 7 days a week right now.  It is learning new technology so that we can still meet the client where they are at, that we can still be of service.  Virtual is the new normal!

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachuttes:  September 2018: 0536

The days ahead seem surreal.  Cities are slow to shut down.  Government is worried about economy.  I understand, but I have to wonder what the economy will look like 24 months from now if a stand is not taken now.  I am praying for a nation wide shut down.  Life to freeze in all aspects, so that this situation can be controlled.  We don’t want to be China.  We don’t want to be Italy, where the death toll went from 9134 to 10 779  men, women and children in less than 24 hours.  We don’t want to be Spain where they are having to make decision on who lives and who dies.  Where they are using scuba diving equipment just to help people breathe. Where they are storing bodies in an ice rink just to protect the bodies from decaying and smelling.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0559

Life has become a roller coaster.  We are on a fast ride, and we don’t know when it is going to stop.  We need to face reality that unless something significant is done by all States at the same time, nothing is going to change.  Right now I live in a State and in an area where “snowbirds” are a huge part of our lives.  In winter they are in our county and in summer they head up north.  A lot of them to New York.  I cannot blame them for wanting to flee New York.  That would be my first instinct as well.  But I live here and I have to wonder what that will bring to South Florida.  A community made up of a lot of elderly folk.  Already Miami is under curfew, Broward county is under stay at home, Boca Raton, is under stay at home, and Palm Beach County has implemented some mandates as well.  We have to start making some really hard decisions at a much higher level than me.  All I can do, is do my part.

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0521

We can be part of the pack, or if we are able, we can stay at home, isolate from the crowd. We can protect our families and friends, and we can ease the burden that our medical system is going to have to deal with.  Friends remember to take these items into account:

  1. Have you or a family member, or co-worker traveled internationally (or been in close contact with someone who has traveled internationally) within the last 14 days?
  2. Have you have traveled from a “hot spot” to another area?
  3. Have you been in close contact with someone who has or is suspected to have a pandemic virus?
  4. Are you experiencing any respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose, or difficulty breathing?
  5. Are you experiencing a fever or flu like symptoms?

If you have please, please you need to consider quarantining yourself

Wash your hands, well, use hand sanitizer if you have it.  If you go to the shop, take your sanitizer with you and clean the cart.  Be aware of what you are touching, the people you are interacting with, people who may be coughing and sneezing around you.  Protect yourself, protect your family.

Stay well, stay safe, and stay sane, don’t be like me, having major conversations with the TV, and watching my blood pressure rise.

Thank you for joining me for 30 Minutes in the Life, during this challenging time in life.
Just a reminder that this is a circle blog.  We have a number of new ladies join the 30 minutes group, and I would encourage you to take some time to visit my very talented friend Crystal from Crystal Bella Photography and see what she has for you this month.  

Share Six: March 2020: Morning

Good {Morning} to you from Bar Harbor in what feels like the wee hours.  Oh yes, once again we are back up and heading out to watch the breaking of the day.  Bar Harbor is perhaps one of the most beautiful sunrises I have experienced, and I have sat through quite a few.  Something we had learned over our days in Maine, is that the fog rolls in and out quite unexpectedly.  This morning was no exception.

When we first arrived, I actually thought that the fog was an island.  However, it kept moving closer.  The weather was chilly for such an early morning, but we took coffee along with us.  I moved around a bit on the dock to try and catch the boats heading out for their early morning fishing, and then back to try my best to capture this gorgeous boat in the sunrise.

This month Share Six’s theme is {Morning} and this is mine.

If you have not been to Bar Harbor, then it should be on your bucket list.  Not only is it a quaint town, but it is also the gateway to the Arcadia National Park.  A park well worth visiting.  Added to that you are right up near the Canadian Border as well, and a ferry ride to Nova Scotia.  We stayed in the town limits, and walked up and down the streets and down to the waterfront.  There were a lot of interesting little shops to browse through.  The highlight of the town was we had one of the best calamari we have ever had and we also got to eat lobster tails, (something we don’t often do 🙂 )

Tell me a Story: February 2020: Maine

Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts:  September 2018: 0248

The Coastline of Maine is beautiful, and we got to explore the area.  Heading up to Bar Harbor, Maine, Richard had a goal.  Visit Arcadia National Park.  If you know anything about me or if you have learned over the past few years, I have had 3 foot surgeries.  The words National Park, and foot surgeries do not go well together in my opinion.  I know what to expect when I hear National Park.  While my feet are okay they certainly are not pain free and after 3-4 hours of walking I need to stop and rest for a while.

One thing that I really enjoyed about Arcadia National Park was the coastline.  And yes, it did involve the word “Hiking”.  Ever since my 20’s the word “hiking” makes me want to run and hide.  I do however, get through it and typically find I have enjoyed it by the end.  Hiking in Arcadia National Park is really not the same as hiking in South Africa.  In the USA it is more drive to the next parking lot, spend 20 minutes trying to find the furthest parking from where you are actually going and then walking on a pathway/steps etc to get to where you are going.

Arcadia was not far from that although we did get to do some rough climbing over rocks etc.  The coastline is rugged and impressive and is well worth the visit. On some of these images I  stood at the top of the rocks looking down watching the water come in and go out and kept getting the feeling that I was being sucked into the flow.

If you are visiting Maine, do your best to plan a stop over in Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park.  Visit the Mount Desert dramatic rocky coastline and also look out for Jordan’s Pond in Arcadia, or also know as Long Pond.  It is definitely a highlight in the area.  Look out for our early morning sunrise at Bar Harbor blog coming out on the 6th.

Thank you for joining me this month as we spend time sharing another day in our lives.  This is a circle blog.  Take some time to view what the other artists have for you this month. My friend Mindy of  is up next and I can’t wait to read what she has to share.
