I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

A Mountain on the Mend

Mt St Helens
slowly regrowing from within
 
The Toutle Valley below
Haunting beauty
ravaged by the volcano
34 years ago

The Plains and What Remains

 
I've fallen in love with the

east of the Cascades
  Where once I saw nothing
I now see and feel
 its beauty

Do You Hear What I Hear

 
 
In the silence
I could hear
the sweet sound
of children at play
and laughter
Most of all
their laughter
 
Schoolhouse built
in 1904

It stands alone
where life 
once surrounded it
in a bustling town
of long ago
What memories
does it hold
