That's how fast tomorrow becomes yesterday.  So I guess the point is - why worry so much. It's all history before we know it.

All At Once

It seems as it is that a lot of times things do happen all at once. Like when you've got nothing special planned for weeks on end, then suddenly you've got six things to do on one weekend. So what about that, Albert?!

Not Yet

Well ... actually, this is the first day of spring and the flowers are most definitely saying 'Not yet!'. And
in regard to winter being over, we are also hearing "not yet".  Life is filled with "Not Yets".

Time Unfolds

The word of the week is TIME.  I'm in a crunch this week, trying to squeeze more minutes out of the day.  Even 'unfolding' is too fast for me - I need it to go in reverse for a wee while

Life to Everything

I sometimes wonder why I am so drawn to water, being a farm girl raised in heart of the country. As a child I gravitated to the creek, as a teenager to the lake, and now it is the sea that calls me. There seems to be an inate pull to water for most of us - a connection to life.

Born Again

It looks like I was 'peeping Tomming' these folks, but I don't take pictures of windows of house where people live. I'm drawn to the ones whose families have left them.  The curtains here speak of better days and perhaps the chance of a new morning.

To Live is Rare

An Oscar Wilde quote in honour of St. Patrick's Day. Bless his Irish heart, he had a lot of wisdom to share.  I guess things weren't much different back in his day.

Day by Dragging Day

This seems like a kind of dark and heavy thing to say ... the 'day by dragging day' part.  That's why I picked the gray photo. The jist and sentiment behind it is relevant, even though he didn't come up with a very upbeat way to share it.

Own Sun

I like thinking about the fact that I can steer my own day. Even a gloomy day I can illuminate from within. And if I'm going to design my own day, every single one is going to have a glorious sunset.

Sacred and Fragrant

Spring is a week today, but we are still in the throes of winter. Life is indeed sacred, but I am getting hungry for blossoms and fragrance. The lovely thing about photographs, it brings it back and keeps us going until it's reality again.

Live All Your Days

There is a difference in living and LIVING.  LIVE until you die.  Good advice all around.

Like An Eagle

This is the same big old eagle as in the four previous photos - I've sure had fun playing with him. The background are all created from other photos that I have taken. Digital media ... such huge fun.

Just Soar

Who wants to creep along the ground, really? All negative connotations associated with that - snakes, rats, bugs ... creepy.  But SOAR ... now there is a word that speaks ofs freedom and grace and adventure.

Just Watch

Tonight was the inaugural meeting of WINGS. It was proof positive that women coming together in a positve, supportive, enthusiastic atmosphere, do indeed SOAR.  We can, and we do SOAR ... just watch!!

Spread Your WIngs

I've always been drawn to the gracefulness of  birds in flight. It has come in handy with building my WINGS & SOAR theme. This one is a Newfoundland bald eagle who lives very close to this harbour.

Your Spirit Soar

When I'm taking a photograph of a building, I consider it a major bonus if I can capture a bird in just the right spot. It takes patience and good luck as it's hard to talk them into a 'do over' or have them shift just a little bit to the left. Got this guy in Ireland in the spring, in the nick of time.

Higher We Soar

Not everyone wants to fly; some are quite content to stay safely on the ground. That's fine too, but they can still celebrate those who want to soar. Some of us crave the freedom and adventure.

Sunday, March 6, 2011


In honour and celebration of the birth of W.I.N.G.S., this week will be dedicated to Soaring. WINGS stands for 'Women in Networking Groups Soar' - the brainchild of my eldest child. The inaugural meeting takes place Thursday with a full house.

New computer. That's well and good and happy, but it's taking me awhile to get all the programs established again.  Will come back and fill in last week when I can find out what word would be appropriate. Patience perhaps.

An Unexpected Pause

Unfortunatey ... HUGELY unfortunately ... I have had a catastrophic crash.   Fatal.  The computer ... not me.  So, actually it could be much more unfortunate. In the scheme of things it's just a major inconvenience.

However ... that means all my pictures are frozen in a useless paperweight. Although I shouldn't talk about my trusty computer like that - it has served me well.

I do have them backed up with an online service. Now all I have to do is buy a new computer and figure out how to suck them back again.

I'm missing my Daily Muse.
