The Pine Cone and the Horse

DSC_0366 (2)There is nothing like trying to take  a picture of a pine cone and getting interrupted by a horse.  Okay, so we know that is not true. I just really can’t remember if I did this on purpose or not. It is possible that I really was going for this effect, but that has been forever ago and now I really can’t recall.  Oh, these last few months.  Really, the whole last year and a half.

I won’t delve into the depths of that right now, but there will be some changes.  Ones that have been a long time coming. Ones that I have been planning, which is probably why they didn’t have them sooner.  I’ve got to stop planning as I tend to do better when I just do it on a whim (or as on a whim as possible at the time).

I will not be changing (paying) jobs at the present moment.  This is unfortunate and a blessing all at the same time.  It is forcing me to do something that I have actually wanted to do, which is relocate.  I no longer have any excuses to put that off and I’ve exhausted my patience and resources here in, “Why-o, why-o, why-o did I ever move to Ohio.”  It is time.  It is actually past time, but there is that part of me that had wished it had played out differently. Not for the sake of staying in Ohio, but for the sake of actually being able to utilize a license that I’ve spent a lot of time and money in obtaining and maintaining. Alas, I digress. Things work out the way they are suppose to.

My relocation will obviously be outside of Ohio.  I’m not really sure exactly where yet.  I have an idea, but I’m going to keep it to myself for now.  I have a bad habit of talking about things and then they fall through.  Want to make sure this goes the way that I want it to first.  I’m anxious and overwhelmed and all the above.  So much to do and not really a lot of time to do it in.
As for my photography, I’m still not sure what this means.  Trying to make a business out of it has so far been unsuccessful and will be put on the back burner, but it will always be something that I do (even if for my own pleasure) so I am going to go ahead and attempt to keep my blog going for the time being.  I cannot say that this will be forever and a day as I’m kind of figuring out that I’ve got to stop making five year plans, but we’ll see how things go.

The move won’t be for a couple of months, so until then there should be no interruptions to my posting.  I thank all of my loyal supporters/followers. You all are rock and make a girl feel giddy about herself and what she likes to think is talent.  For now, I bid you adieu.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

In Darkness There Is Light

DSC_0087Through the darkness, one shall find light
Through that light, one shall find enlightenment
Through that enlightenment, one shall find peace.

That is all I have for that. I may come up with more later or I may leave it, we shall see.  For now, have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Take It Easy….

DSC_0091 (5)
“Well I’m a runnin’ down the road try’n to loosen my load,” but so many of us are.

There are so many thoughts going through my mind today.  My original post was going to be about yet another loss  in the world.  Glenn Frey, a founding member of the Eagles, passed away yesterday.  There have been so many losses  already this 2016.    Talk about a heavy on the heart beginning.   ‘Tis life, I know.

Then my own spinning wheels as the last of the components I need to make a final decision keeps me hanging on.  Of course the components I have, well, they have created more questions than answers. I think that I have a solution for that, though, should that be where the road leads.    In the words of the Eagles,

“Take it easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don’t even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy”

One of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn.  I’m working on it, though.  I’m also convinced that this is still going to be an amazing year.  That is the first part of making it so, isn’t it?

As far as the losses, may they all find their places on the clouds. May them find peace and just take it easy.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Dancing on the Water

DSC_0613We were dancing…dancing on the water.  Okay, so the song that I had in mind was actually “They’re dancin’, shaggin’ on the boulevard,” as delivered by Alabama.  This works, though. At least I think that it does.

That is kind of what this reminds me of.  A little dancing.  The waves just having a good old time.  Okay, so maybe dancing is the wrong word.  I do like the way that this little part of the wave just kind of made its own little groove, though. The different splash patterns before it settled. I know that all waves  do that, but I had never paid enough attention to notice the creations like this.  Lesson learned.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
