I now, officially, love to shoot stuff. Specifically targets, but I’m open to suggestion and I’m pretty dang good, so…
I had the privilege of visiting with a terrific local retired doctor and his nurse wife to interview them for the Home of the Month story. They open their home to share with others quite often and are very willing and eager to share their blessings. People can be awesome.
And here you see a photograph of the photographer. Touring a beautiful garden is another perk to my freelance storytelling job. That’s Brandon to the left and then Brandon to the right.
And look! My two oldest babies let me take them out to lunch Wednesday afternoon. Aren’t they gorgeous?!!
Here you can see how I build a project, from start to finish, on my design wall.
The pictures that I take along the way provide the bread crumb trail I use to get back on the path when I've gone astray. They also provide a different perspective and a distancing to my own work.

I'm a 49 year old Quilter, Episcopalian, and Lover of Words. I'm of mixed heritage (1/2 Ozark Hillbilly, 1/2 Southern Belle), I live in the Pacific NW and I love to talk about my family, quilting and country living.
Oh, and I'm SINGLE (in case you're wondering).
I am a freelance writer, outdoors columnist and photojournalist who loves meeting people while they are doing what they love and listening to them talk about their passions.
I live a Creative, Joy-filled Life in love with God, all creation and my neighbor (that means you). It's my vocation. I hope that one day, if I practice long and hard enough, I might get good at it.
I WOULD LOVE for you to leave me a comment or you can send me an email.
"We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us." -Marcel Proust
As much as I would like to believe that I am original or different, "There is nothing new under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 1:9). The road that I am on is a road that many other people have traveled before me. That fact gives me comfort, it humbles me and it reminds me that I am most certainly not alone on my journey.
A Prayer for the Road
My LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone. -Thomas Merton from Thoughts in Solitude
