Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

Posted on




For this week’s photo challenge at The Daily Post.

A different perspective can change everything.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Curve

Posted on



Curves are the inspiration  for the Weekly Photo Challenge. I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use this photo. You can find many more interpretations at The Daily Post.


Writing 201- Day 2

Posted on

Hands out, eyes closed

Ugliness tied with a bow

Saccharin sweet and simulated

Here lie the ashes of integrity

Mincing words and morals

Over coffee and character

Never did you think

Ethics would be worth

Your weight in gold


Written for Writing 201 at The Daily Post. The word prompt was “gift” although this is a darker interpretation. I also accepted the challenge of writing it as an “acrostic” poem.

Linking this up for Open Link Night at dVerse.

squandering seconds slipping

mirage of meaning


This was my first assignment for The Daily Post’s Writing 201. We are focusing on “screen” as a word prompt. Additional challenges were writing a haiku and using alliteration as a poetic device. 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy

Posted on


As we traveled along a highway in Michigan, these clouds seemed to be eyeballing us all the way. They definitely added a creepy vibe to the morning sky. Check out more creepy photos over at The Daily Post.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Muse

Posted on


Trees are my muse. I am overwhelmed by their beauty, individualism and stature. Their history intrigues me. As Mother Nature sculpts and paints them with her elements, I have the easy part. Be amazed. Point and shoot.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth II

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

Posted on

Perhaps a little too literal, but I honestly didn’t even consider it when I took these for the Weekly Photo Challenge.

The theme was dialogue between two photos.








Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light

Posted on

Rest in Peace, Nelson Mandela

September 2011 741

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

‘A Return to Love” (1992) by Marianne Williamson

Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Posted on

The CN Tower in downtown Toronto offers an infinite view of the city’s metropolis structure. During this particular visit, I enjoyed sharing one of Canada’s iconic landmarks with some American family members.
It all made for a sunshiny day.

Lake Ontario to the left seems to be another “infinity”.

Exterior elevators take tourists from all around the world to the top of this observation tower. Standing over 1,800 feet high, it is still the tallest free standing structure in the Western Hemisphere.
