Everything Looks Different.....

through the lens of my camera. 

Though I've always loved photography, nothing prepared me for the grip it has had on me for the last three years.  The digital world has lured me into the pleasure of learning how to create an image, and now I see them everywhere. 

This gorgeous chandelier sparkles in the morning light streaming through the window in my friend's dining room.

The ordinary, in reality, is quite extraordinary.

"People are like stained glass windows; they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness set in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within."

Spring Shows Up

Spring finally made it through security and showed up yesterday.

She had a little trouble being restricted to 3oz of liquid in a zip lock bag.  You know, Spring is all about exuberance, extravagance and excess in color and fragrance.  Pack lightly?  Please.  She didn't forget her blow dryer, either, for what she calls "the tornado affect."

Welcome, Spring.  We're ready for you.

"Spring is nature's way of saying, Let's party!"

— Robin P. Williams

Winter tries to Spring

Winter packed its bags on Friday, all set for a Saturday departure. 

Spring was due to arrive the next day, and Winter didn't want to get in the way. 

But Spring must have gotten detained in security.

So, Winter decided to hang around a few more days and throw a farewell bash.


A Cheerful Look

Months ago, when I first considered starting a blog, I knew one of my main challenges would be maintaining momentum. 

I cringed when I noticed my last posting was written in February. 

But life happens, as I know it does for you.  Even so, I am determined to create a better system.  Any suggestions?

Here is the latest example of how family needs can put everything on hold.

Early last week, granddaughter Piper went into the hospital, in the wee hours of the morning, with a respiratory infection and low oxygen levels.  She seemed to snap out of it and went home.   You can barely see the celebratory balloons tied to her stroller.

A few hours later, she was back in the ER.  Diagnosis: RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) or as her grandfather calls it, Really Serious Virus.

Glitter, glue, stickers and scissors were the most help in enduring the constant stream of medical personnel, treatments and tests.  But I must not forget to mention the almost hypnotic affect of the Sprouts network on the hospital television.

She's a crafty little thing!  And the more glitter, the better!

Aunt Claudia came by one evening to snap up some bubbles.

We all celebrated at the end of the week when she was able to go home.  In the above photo, you can see her projects proudly displayed along the window sill.  The delicate treasures required some creative packing!

Grateful for medical care; even more grateful when she doesn't need it.

A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.
Proverbs 15:30
