Whoa dilly, as i look at the calendar on my tool bar,
I see that it's been well over 2 months since I've posted here! Honestly?!?
Geez, I've almost forgotten how to do this...
but much like coming home after an extended holiday, it's just a matter of opening a few
windows, dusting off a couple of cobwebs and brewing a pot of tea before the rhythm
of comfort sets in for me.
Life has been very rewarding as of late, a balanced blend of real hard work and extremely
exciting play! Invaluable accolades, such as taking a break along a river with a
lunch~hunting spotted owl, listening in on old whispers coming from new~growth elders,
and heeling to a golden~gated bridge aboard a Hasty Heart, were refreshing my depleted
spirit & renewing my sense of wonder.
I traveled to new, and old familiar places. I saw new, and old familiar faces.
I celebrated life & love with a sense of adventure. I unplugged & let go.
And I felt the concrete canyon dissolve away...far, far away.
I enjoyed my ride with the top down. I let the wild, west wind tangle up my hair
& the northern sun paint me up a shade of amber.
My soul was replenishing.
I spoke fluent "photographese," as my camera was my voice. This visual language flowed
in & out of me morning, noon & night. My heart beat in shutter speed & my metabolism
charged up, naturally. All my senses feasted. I savored the ripeness of farm to table
foods. I ogled every blue~green ocean vista. I tuned in to the depths of the forests & I
heard the voices of wisdom. I inhaled the ubiquitous scent of eucalyptus, deeply; and I
held it in...held it all in.
Forever. For keepsakes.
I still haven't quite exhaled.
So, until then,
let me share with you, another side of me
another expression, so to speak,
sometimes, I draw lines...when I just can't put it into words...
but the feelings remain...fluid,
deep inside of me.
I hope all you magical beings are well & making time to enjoy this bright season!
I have missed each & every one of you!
