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.

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.

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.
