I have long considered the creative impulse to be a visit-a thing of grace perhaps. Not commanded, owned, so much as awaited, prepared for. A thing, also, of mystery.

wind in the clouds


the clouds are better some days than others
this past Monday was a very good day
my first view of the day
was a buildup near the ground
the ocean is off in this direction
quite often, clouds stack up near along the shore


this was taken higher in the sky
the various layers of clouds were moving at different speeds
the closer white ones were flying



two watering cans?
I have an imagination!


I spotted a couple of hawks
playing in the currents 
while I was out shooting
just missed getting one of 
them in this shot

winter work





This is what I am working on now.
It will go on the wall in my sewing room when it is done.
I am thinking about gardening, but it is way too early here to do 
anything but start clippings from last year's pink geranium.


 The obedience plants above came to me in the mail 
 from my, Kerri.
I love them, and so do the bees.


Poppies are another favorite. 
I like the way they start in
the garden but end up everywhere.

ghost tree


this is an old shot of a maple that I have admired 
for the past 40 plus years
I found out yesterday 
that it is gone
thanks to Google maps
it was beautiful in every season
sad to think that it ended up 
as firewood, 
but,
I guess that is is how life is
the crow is
still around
I am glad to say

a hummingbird at my window


an early morning visit from a very small friend


I took these photos from inside the living room
and through the window screen


it was the first time I managed to watch her at
the feeders and flowers



sometimes staying far away is better
