    October 8, 2014 As I gain more followers, many of you ask- “What’s it like to blog?” Blogging to me is like fog in the morning. It clouds my vision, covering all things conscious, with possibility. What kind of possibility? The possibility of beautiful.

    September 20, 2014 It’s summer’s end- let’s celebrate zinnias!   If I were a bumblebee, I would buzz about here.

  • Karma

    September 3, 2014 While walking out to the barn, I almost stepped on this guy. “Well, hello there.” He followed me, with his beady eyes, craning his neck in different directions.

    August 20, 2014 Can you guess what the shadow is on the barn? It’s these two! They joined me for lunch on the front porch. When I took their picture, they appeared as a shadow on the barn. It was thrilling! Remember, I am a farm girl. Jeffrey was asked, “What kind of animals do… Continue Reading
