LOVE & The Power of 1

had the honor of meeting Artist Donna Dowless. Her priceless works are hung in the Grand Bohemian Gallery in Orlando, Florida. A #MustSee, if I may say – not just to view, but the gift of experiencing her soulful work and the passionate energy that surges and embraces you – even if only for a moment! So, #Love and more #Love to all! #Itfeelsogood 


This image is a gift of gratitude to Donna, a photo taken by friend Buck Allen and I played with the image digitally to bring it to this image to thank Donna. So moved by seeing her work, meeting her and knowing that by sharing others would know that too! 


Sunshine & Daffodils

The burst of the yellow tube skirted with teardropped petals dancing with spritz of beauty and sunshine – oh the enjoyment of spring! 



I Believe 

it’s not even that time of year. Yet, I run across a few photos I took of Santa which take me to a special place. A place where the dreams begin and the excitement surges – knowing without knowing all…believing the intuitiveness and allowing the energy through thoughts, words and activity to make it reality. And then there is just that – reality! 


Papa’s Passion

Each day’s light continually captured the delicate elegance and purity of each orchid. Hundreds lining the interior benches of each greenhouse. The endless beauty and grace became the gifts he gave, freely to others who learned the art of growing this beauty. His passion became theirs, a legacy of such.

The American Orchid Society is one of the Orchid resources that my Papa raved about:

Every Town Has One

That old landmark or marquee. You know the one – that one…without it everyone would not be able to say, I’ve been there! This one does that for Carolina Beach. It is one of the key signs along the Carolina Beach Boardwalk in the Central Business District that stand high and stands out.

Mine – she showed me her true colors the day I captured her!
