New Chapter in My Life Begins

I’ve started to walk again, it fells great and very unstable. Throughout my battle with Lyme I prayed for my Granny’s strength. My Granny had to learn to walk twice as an adult. The first was from a terrible accident leaving her in a wheelchair or walker for years. She cleaned new houses for extra money, whatever the job required she would get it … Read More New Chapter in My Life Begins

Yosemite National Park: Half Dome

  Wild Wild West by Melinda The summit of Half Dome is a dangerous place during a lightning storm. Check the weather forecast before your hike and try to reach the summit early in the day to avoid thunderstorms, which are more common in the afternoon (but can occur at any time). If a storm appears nearby, do not continue to the summit … Read More Yosemite National Park: Half Dome

Guest Photographer Gavin Kerslake

Please welcome Guest Photographer Gavin Kerslake. I met Gavin several years ago, probably thru a comment on a photo. He is a natural with the camera, his work can memorize or shine light on something missed. I would categorize his work as Industrial Realism, his eye captures the story in what others walk by without a thought. I’m thrilled Gavin allowed me to share … Read More Guest Photographer Gavin Kerslake

Where is it January 1st?

I looked at stats to find WP has already flipped to January. My clock is showing 6:19pm, nowhere near the usual 11:00pm roll over. Maybe WP is enjoying a vacation in a much different time zone. Who is already enjoying the New Year? Does it matter, probably not. 🙂 M
