Keeping in mind yesterday's insight that this blog is primarily about my photos, here is my daily photo. My neighbour's garden is providing a bright spot to cheer up my morning today! Hoping it will brighten up yours too!
So I've been happily writing for a few days on my new blog now. And somehow it doesn't seem too hard to crank out a few lines here and there. But really and honestly - I want this site to be about my pictures. I love the idea of mindfulness in and through photography, but... Continue Reading →
Mindfulness In Photography
This is clearly not my text. But it describes pretty accurately and very detailed what I meant by my original thought of 'Slow Down. Take A Breath. Take A Photograph.' Mindfulness in Photography Half a century ago eastern philosophy began to seep into the west, bringing new insights about awareness, self, and reality. Some of... Continue Reading →
To be honest, every now and then there is a word where I just can't properly grasp the meaning of it (English is not my native language...). Candid is surely one of them. I know I've looked it up many times before but somehow it doesn't stick. So here it is again, even if only... Continue Reading →
The journey continues. I would really like to do something with my photos that will generate income, even if it is small.

We did make an effort and attended Church service this morning, but somehow it all went over my head today and I mostly enjoyed the view of the frozen lake... Continue Reading →

But coming back to the winter retreat I just attended, I thoroughly experienced them. I really was away from it all. And it was a treat to travel with a friend that noticed the silence...

Inspiration can be anywhere
There are these days where you just can't be at an awesome relaxing winter retreat. It's yucky out, too busy between whatever all needs get done in a day. I have lots of those.

New Year, New Ideas.
So I was away for a precious couple of days last weekend. 40 women, communal meals, cross-country skiing, snowy hikes and a bonfire at an Environmental Education Centre. To rejuvenate. To find ourselves in the middle of busy lives. This also echoed a sermon about "New Beginnings" I recently attended. That no New Year's resolutions... Continue Reading →
