Wiser

It started innocently enough: Someone has liked your post!

When I clicked the link,

the address was missing one letter:

Proofreader Me, thinking it was a mistake,

typed what I thought was the corrected address.

My laptop exploded with flashing blue screens

telling me that it was locked now,

and only their ‘expert’ could help me retrieve my data again.

Needless to say, after several choice %$@#&s,

(and an apology to Artist for them!)

I went about reclaiming my laptop, from where I’m posting!


After I’d had time to think,

it made me a little sad.

I always like to give the person

the benefit of the doubt,

and this person may not know

his site had been corrupted.

But I also would not be surprised

if he was part of the spidery web

of wanna-be hackers

wasting their God-given gifts in this way.

But if this causes one reader

to be alert for this image, this WP address,

and this ‘trick’, then it is worth it.

All the best to all of us

who strive for honest, connected communication.

Conga Line

I love the conga line!

My cameras do, too!


It’s a dance the shy can do,

and the bolder ones can do with flair!

Group dancing is great for social skills practice

and positive social experiences

a dance at a time!


As the holidays draw nigh,

how may I help capture your holiday spirit?

On the Easel

Today’s On The Easel is an infant’s portrait in natural light.

Very small infants are absolutely lovely while they observe their world around them –

I love how they embody their innocence, essential energy, and innate purity.

Seeing the Big Picture

I had a business with a reputation for working with all types of personal frames and enjoyed the challenge of each session.

I am still a custom portrait photographer choosing the best of what is available now

to offer a brand new direction in a curated selection of portraits and photo art that showcases your session to view and love.

I respect busy family time and schedules and keep decisions easy to make, see and enjoy.

Rest and have fun knowing that it will be completed and ready for enjoying on your walls!

Generosity of Spirit

waving good luck cat maneki neko

There is a generosity of spirit I continually refer to in dealing with others.

The best way I can describe it is intent, creation, and maintenance of a state of mind

that is flexible, open eyed, and playfully creative.

It trains itself to see abundance in the environment,

experiences simple, present-moment emotions of happiness,

maintains a grounded, connection with internal wisdom (quickly when needed)

and surrounds itself with reminders

to look upward and inward for its answers.
