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

The If Factor

If only I'd been there
if only I wasn't
if only I could
if only I did

We are too hard on ourselves
perhaps age helps tame that
perhaps that light finally goes on
and we see
we are
only we
and we do
our best

There's an old barn
