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.

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!

Treasures Untold

On the shoreline she offers her soul

Some may see her as broken

But there is one

Her beauty infuses into the depths of another

Claiming the energy of the natural spirit and the treasures untold 

The one

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.

In the Air

Aerospace and aeronautics have been in my blood since birth. The land of hangers and runways, test pilots and astronauts, and the many thrills of the flight. In this museum I had familiarity and wonderful memories of the technologies, people and the historical stories of each.

My Version of Picasso

Some-time(s) everything comes together to just happen. That moment and realization of that is profound. “It” stops you and infuses a peace, a joy, recognition of a special place, time, and feeling. Often leaving you bewildered and curious, beyond measure or understanding. That inspiration and motivation that life is amazing and beautifully unique to me!
