Darkness cannot drive out darkness; 
only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate; 
only love can do that.

A Thousand Winds ~ Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep 
I am not there. I do not sleep. 

I am a thousand winds that blow. 
I am the diamond glints on snow. 
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. 
I am the gentle autumn rain. 

When you awaken in the morning's hush 
I am the swift uplifting rush 
Of quiet birds in circled flight. 
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry; 
I am not there. I did not die.

2016 CellPhone Highlights ~ January to June

So thought of this, this morning partly because my cell storage has run out and thought it probably would be a good day to clean it up and backup.  Started to notice some neat remembers and fun things I found along the way.

So this is:  January through until the end of June.  There are photo of everyday stuff to my holiday adventures in Jasper Alberta and Newfoundland.

Sorry no audio ... would take for some reason LoL :)

Ahh, Spring!

Well, it has been ages since I posted.  Winter has been long and cold, so it was alot of staying home where it is warm ... so it is time to get back out and at it again!!

First real photowalk of the year was yesterday and it was a perfectly beautiful day to be outside. So happy I went.

I started downtown Calgary and the light was so interesting.  Soft and pretty, what more can you ask for 😃

Then it was on to Inglewood, where the Photowalk with a bunch of new friends began.  Want to Thank Marlene Hielema, she is a wonderful person and a great teacher.  I truly enjoy her company, thoughtfulness and she is a great organizer 😊 Thank you Again to you and Ruth Bergen Braun for organizing and getting everyone together for a Great Inglewood Photowalk.

So in a few weeks, I will be off to Victoria so there will be all sorts of new photos and adventures for the coming year.  

Looking forward to sharing again all of the adventures and simple fun photos.

Get Down and Look!!

Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?

Winter Etching

Winter is an etching, spring is a water color, summer is an oil painting and autumn is a mosaic of all of them.

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, 
places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer 
and give strength to body and soul alike.

The leaves hop, scraping on the ground.
It is deep January. The sky is hard.
The stalks are firmly rooted in ice.
It is in this solitude, a syllable,
Out of these gawky flitterings,
Intones its single emptiness,
The savagest hollow of winter-sound.
~Wallace Stevens

Master Artist

What a severe yet master artist old Winter is.... No longer the canvas and the pigments, but the marble and the chisel.
