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

Through the Years

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

Nearly Forgotten

An early schoolhouse sits quiet
where a town once was
The doors are not
locked
 
Inside
a piano in disrepair
 
A windmill from a far off yesterday
seen through old wavy windows
 
We took only photos
and one small rock
where children once played

Back Road Exploring

We found fences
that fenced nothing in
 
Bridges
that went nowhere
 
And yes
got totally lost
 
Today
 was a wonderful day

In Search of Ghost Towns

We meandered through the
beautiful Columbia River Gorge
to the east side of the Cascade Range
 
in search of
ghost towns
which there are many

Tis the Moon I See

 
 
It was more than
a wee bit cold and damp
my tripod kept sliding
in the dew
But seeing a total lunar eclipse
a blood moon
was an experience
too wonderful for words
