Crossroads Without a Clear Path

I am stopped at the intersection, waiting for a sign or signal. There is no traffic light or stop sign, so I have pulled over to the side of the road. Which way shall I go? I have no map, the way is not clear in my mind and the roads ahead are not paved.…

Abstracts from Life

I find water, rocks and cactus to be very natural abstract forms. Water is always intriguing, changing form and affecting everything it touches. Rocks are just amazing in the diversity of shape, size, color and texture that they come in. And cactus are just mystifying. What a strange world we live in; it’s all abstract…

Earth Day 2016 – Gratitude and Apology

One of my favorite days of the year simply because our Earth deserves public recognition and celebration. The first time I celebrated Earth Day was in 1970 with my friends, on the side of a garbage strewn road, picking up trash.

I Spy Everything

That’s what cats do, they are always watching everything, except when they’re sleeping. But even then, sometimes you can catch them with one eye open. I took these photos with my phone recently during my morning meditation. They keep me company, sort of. Well, at least they’re quiet. Anyway, I enjoy watching them as they…

Re-Fresh-ing my Wall

I’ve been a bit behind in terms of posting here lately, so today is catch up day. Sharing photos for last weeks WordPress Photo Challenge – Wall, and this weeks challenge – Fresh. Yes, two posts with one click. Somehow they fit well together, because I have to keep my Wall Fresh. I use the…
