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.

National Zoo

Lions, Tigers, Bears, Birds and Cheetahs -Oh My!

The National Zoo – A spectacular place to share special moments with family, friends and self.

The animals, accustomed to the masses, really do engage. Their personalities abound, only if the time is spent to listen, observe and connect.

It is that moment, the connection, that ignites the soul!

On this day, I was privileged to connect, and much like Dr. Doolittle. They watched me watch them. They talked to me while I watched them. And they motioned and moved while I solely stood in amazement, wondering what they would’ve doing in their natural habitat.

I hold respect beyond words for living beings on this earth. I am blessed to have continual joy of the moments of connection, that ground my soul to God.

The Front Porch

Welcome to…
Is that not the purpose of a front porch? The opening and face of a structure. The presentation of what is yet to come. The best is when the smell of good cooking entices you to ‘come on in.’

Wander down the path and turn to walk across the dunes to the shoreline. Treasures await you. However, turn back and stop. You see her majestic stance against blue skies. She is mesmerizing!

Get close up. Climb into her being and join the souls of her journey. The light guides and directs those ships and beings a shore. Enticing and memorable she is.
