Dinner with cousins 1

Dinnertime with My Cousins

That’s a really big salad! When I ordered the Taco Salad I didn’t expect to get such a huge meal, I’m not that big of an eater. I couldn’t exactly send it back, especially with such friendly service.Dinner is so much better with a perky waitress. It had been almost 3 years since I had…

The future is only a figment of imagination, it is not real until it becomes the present. Most of my past imaginations of the future have become a reality, although slightly different from what I might have thought at the time. Now, as I envision the path ahead I create it – with room for…

Refreshing Landscape

This week I am combining themes. Landscape from the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge and Refreshing from Where’s My Backpack’s Weekly Travel Theme.

There is an enormous range of dance possibilities between these two extremes,…

Harmony – Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge

State of Mind

I wish I could say that my state of mind is peaceful, but at the moment it is not. I can not describe what is going on in my head right now except perhaps with these pictures. A little drizzly, unclear, muddy even. Unfocused? No, I am very focused. I have to be to get…
