I am selling Photography cards to provide a way for folks to purchase a show image in a way that is very affordable, $3.00 per card. They are also being given away for a good cause: If you bring 2 non-perishable food items to donate, you’ll get a card as a thank you! A main […]

My son’s new favorite song starts out like this, “You can do better, You can do better, You can be the Greatest Man in the World…”  We’ve been listening to it a lot lately. I’m not sure that his 5-year-old self can relate to the catchy tune’s lyrics, but it is really fun. The other […]

I wanted to celebrate August, the month of my birth, with a photography show in a local coffee shop. But, I booked a show for January 2011 instead (it was the nearest date open) and decided that was a good thing. The past 4 years have brought me a January full of loss in one […]

On Saturday, I sat in the warmth of sunshine while admiring sculpture and reflecting on what I’d just heard during the opening talks of the World Domination Summit.

Last September, I had no idea that I would finally find a solution to my baby’s constipation and embark on a new passion: finding healing through nourishing food. As chance would have it the previous 9 months had laid the ground work for me to be open to making changes to how we eat, and […]

I was going to finish up a post to share why and when I think you should decide to “Go Organic” or become an independent food consumer. But, I have something else on my mind that I want to share while the glee is still in me. Anyone who has visited my home can tell […]

Simply put, here are glimpses of my daily life.  Most days are not fully lit by sunshine, but are full of little joys. These pictures are my way of looking to find them, and stopping to enjoy.  What do you do to “stop and smell the roses” in your life?
