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

Hints of Change

Days shorten
Summer recedes
With hints of Autumn
Sprinkled in the trees

The Heavens Opened and it Rained

A steady glorious rain!
Though it won't end our drought
or douse our many wildfires
it's a start!

On a train

My heart is heavy with sorrow
Major wildfires are raging out of control
throughout Oregon and Washington State
Homes have been destroyed
Lives have been lost
with no end in sight
We are in dire need
of a miracle

On a Quiet Morn

I watched
as the ripples and swirls
overcame the calm
