My husband and I returned home from a memorable trip to Italy at the end of October 2019. We were shocked a few weeks later about the flooding where we had recently been in Vince and then again a few months later about the Coronavirus in Italy.
While being ‘one with nature’ I don’t think about anything else
These nesting osprey were a gift of being in the right
place at the right time…
Watching both parents feed the screaming chick was
an incredible experience
I am both writer and photographer – sometimes in nature
there’s just not the words…
Steep hike up to this ‘hidden’ waterfall
It feels so good being able to climb like this – so alive, being
connected to nature…living in the mountains, writing,
photographing and walking…in nature…
Little flying jewels
Since I’m still very much getting use to our new very heavy camera I’m particularly proud of this ‘in flight’ photograph
It’s been scientifically proved that being close to nature reduces stress and tension
What is your connection to nature?
After waking to a dark, early morning, heavy spring snow – the sun has come out to create a picturesque day. The dogs and I just walked the nature trail.

Hope & Joy
Preparing a colorfully pleasing, tasty
and healthy meal is so satisfying!
Bless us, Oh Lord, and these thy gifts
which we are about to receive from thy bounty,
through Christ, Our Lord.
Who knew this March 8th ritual would be our last social gathering for…indefinitely.
Lifting the shade the other morning left me in awe as the glowing, picturesque crescent moon was coming over the mountain top. I smiled. I stood still enjoying the moment. I hurried to grab my camera and the moment.
It’s been said that the Moon represents powerful feminine energy; signifying wisdom, intuition, birth, death, reincarnation, and a spiritual connection.
After getting a number of both enjoyable and constructive things checked off THE LIST last Saturday, Sunday was full of fun activities!!!
Our friends Ed and June ‘don’t do any kind of social media.’ Pictured are: Sylvia and Bill, Erin, Don (almost catholic J), myself – terrible posture and my husband, Bruce.
Taking into consideration what is in our control and what is not, I think this is the best time of life, as is living up here in the mountains, in Lake City, Colorado. I always find it interesting from people who are considering moving up here full time, wondering what the heck do we do in the winter!
Bruce and Joy deciding which tree is the right choice
For our mountain Christmases we always cut our tree. When living in suburbia, I’ve gone to a Christmas tree lot and also had an artificial tree. Cutting our own tree my favorite!
