About Me

My Photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.

.~ I've Been Hacked! ~

Good Morning,

It appears someone hacked into my blog account yesterday and republished a few blog posts of mine.
I have since changed my settings so that should fix that.
But just wanted to let the folks who are following my blog know why they received an email from me with older posts.

To the person who finds their happiness in hacking into peoples blogs, I pray that you find something more meaningful to fill your days. Please consider using your super powers for good and not evil.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

.~ No Strings Attached.~

No Strings Attached
By Traci Suzanne Marvel

No matter what the circumstances, you can always count on your dog to be a loyal and faithful companion. If humans showed this same loyalty and faithfulness to each other, they would be one step closer to having a successful, lifelong, loving relationship.

.~ New Half-Year's Resolutions ~ .

“Dig within. Within is the wellspring of Good; and it is always ready to bubble up, if you just dig.”
                                                                                                               ― Marcus Aurelius

Marilu Henner's Total Health Makeover desk calendar reminds me that - July 1st, 2014 - marks the official second half of the year. Marilu suggests that on this day you do the following:

  "Make a list of everything that's been working in your life these past six months, and a second lost of everything that hasn't. These two lists will tell you at a glance what you want to keep and what you need to change for the rest of the year." ~ Marilu Henner

 Today I am going to dig within and identify 6 things that have been working and 6 things that I need to change. There is still time to make 2014 the B.E.S.T year of my life.

How about you?
What does your list look like?

List #1. What's been Working (Keep)

List#2. What's Not Been Working (Change)

Those who share their list on my blog will get their name entered to win  my giclee' print ...
 " Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second.
 Give your dreams all you got and you'll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you."
                                                                            ~Willam James 

Are you ready to pull out all the stops and make the second half of this year better than the first?
Are you ready to fuel your 2014 dreams?

Looking forward to reading your comments.
Winning name will be chosen randomly July 31st 2014 at Happy Hour (5:00 p.m. MT)
