Flip Side

Flip Side You weren’t supposed to find this place were you? You weren’t supposed to see inside you. Go back, go back under the covers! But you won’t, will you? No…no, you’ll stay up and burn up the rules, like the wind carries fire from tree to tree. You weren’t supposed to feel so much, were you? No, don’t touch anything, or let your heart and soul grow. But you did and now… you’re inside the storms that move winter […]

Absence of Indifference

    During the past few months, I have been heavily considering the tendency I have to numb myself.  It is a coping mechanism and there are many ways to numb.  For me, it’s like there is an internal off switch. It’s  been available to me since since childhood, and I still sometimes flip the switch when things get rough.  I turn off all my lights and just shut down.  My eyes are open, and I am moving, and I […]

Behind the Pixeled Curtain

“Behind the Pixeled Curtain” Whatever your physical appearance, status, or attachments, it seems it is impossible to escape judgement.  Dig deep, learn all you can about yourself and your own opinions.  If you choose to create according to those beliefs, you are already stronger than those on the sidelines judging, and it won’t take long to always hear your voice over theirs.  This is your shield of self-love, that no one can take from you.         About […]

Hammock Happy

Forest camping… Being in the forest transcends the written word.  The closest I can get to communicating how I feel, is that an exchange takes place, at a very deep level.  Each time I go, part of me is left there in the forest, and I take part of it with me.  What I take, and what I give is not tangible and it’s not greedy.  It might sound crazy to say that the forest needs anything from us.  Afterall, […]

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! This year for Halloween we welcomed a dead football player and a vampire into our house.  Luckily they were very friendly, handsome and beautiful.  They obliged my desire to take photos of them in the garage with my smoke machine.  The vampire has a strong inner actress, is involved in theater and singing, so she particularly enjoyed showcasing her costume and vampire expressions.  For these photos, I used the following lenses: Canon 50mm f/1.4, Lensbaby Edge 80, and […]

Late Summer Bloom

Morning asthma. It’s always scary. Even when it’s mild. He wanted to stay home. He could have gone to school. We are trying to find the balance. Safe at home. Safe at school. We let him stay home. He wanted chocolate pancakes. I  made him chocolate pancakes. He loves honey. It’s raw. It’s local. It’s late summer bloom. It might help his allergies. It was a beautiful morning. He was fine. He is fine. He will be fine.     […]
