The old girl’s ride home after her “Senior Check-up.”
After an exhausting morning of bloodwork, other invasive testing (if you catch my drift), and getting her nails clipped, my pooch initially would not let me get in the driver’s seat. After I explained that she needed a driver’s license, she begrudgingly moved into the passenger’s seat.
And here she is now that we are home.
Every day, I can choose one of two things…
Fear or Love.
Today, I choose Love.
This photo was taken with my iPhone 5S. The tomatoes are from my garden. There is an art to growing things, and then there is something else about making them into a work of art. Both are gratifying. Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge, Week 4: Challenger’s Choice – Still Life.
Although I wasn’t too happy with what these Japanese Beetles were doing to my Knock Out Roses, I couldn’t resist the urge to snap the photos of these critters on one of their host plants. I love flowers, I’m fascinated by critters, and I have a phoneography fetish… not a bad combination.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

As I celebrate this Independence Day, I have never been more grateful for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Happy Fourth of July!
I love how the filter makes the green so lush in this photo that I took on one of my many walks. This one was taken at a local greenway.

Just as a blade of grass will push through a crack in the cement, growing toward the light, we too are being pulled toward a fuller expression of ourselves.
When I am discontent, I know I am being urged to expand myself. If I seek light, the Universe pulls me toward my ideal self. I am more than I ever dreamed I could be, and so are you.
I meant to take a photo right as the odometer rolled over to 300,000. It has been a great car and it runs like a top. I am eager to see how many miles it will go.
I often see a reflection of myself in the people I encounter. Although we are different in many ways, the members of the human race are also very similar. As I watch how others behave, I have realizations about myself. It is very difficult to see them on my own. But when I am watching others, I see behaviors and attitudes that I possess. It’s as though we are mirrors for each other.
