oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

Comfort Food


Sometimes you just need to sit down

and eat a bowl of ice cream

as big as your face. 


Goin’ Fishin’

What I see is my niece heading out with her fishing tackle in tow. What I think is I like catching fish more than I like fishing.


If people concentrated on the

really important things in life,

there’d be a shortage of fishing poles.

standing in the light


Sometimes I feel like this, like I’m standing in the light.


The windows of my soul I throw

Wide open to the sun.

– John Greenleaf Whittier 


little purple beauties

I took this picture at the pumpkin patch last fall. What I see is a close-up of one of the little purple beauties that were growing all over. What I think is that it's just nice that a picture can make you feel happy.


Happiness depends more

on how life strikes you

than on what happens.

– Andy Rooney


you’re never too old

I remember this day; it was a very good day. What I see is my nephew (who turned 17 this past summer) in the kind of moment that seems set aside for the young. What I think is that it isn't over til it's over.


I can be filled with joy and wonder too.

as we love

Logan and Amanda in a moment I'm overjoyed to have captured. What I see is a brother and his little sister sharing a look and a laugh together. What I think is that our relationships are a precious treasure. What I wish is that it could always be this simple.


Person to person,

moment to moment,

as we love,

we change the world.

a best day

I took this many, many summers ago in Chincoteague Virginia. It was the only time I've taken my nephews on vacation, just the three of us. What I see is Peyton looking down at the water mere minutes after we arrived at our vacation rental. What I think of is how wonderful it was to be an aunt to young things, and of two little girls who are giving me that gift again.


Every day is my best day;

this is my life.

I’m not going to have

this moment again.
