I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

A Little Bit of Sunshine

Nine months of the year
we live under the cover of clouds
with an almost continuous drizzle
I love our webbed foot weather
but when the sun finds its way through
we rejoice

in a canyon alongside the Columbia River
The light that filters through
makes magic

You may stumble upon one
hidden deep in the unknown but

lest we try

so proud
I love watching them
as they watch me
