Images in Clouds


A Word in Your Ear has a weekly photo challenge which I just learned about – this week’s word was cloud.  I love photographing clouds and thought I would participate.

These are a few of my favorites.





 The last one I love because it looks like I live in the mountains – far from it, but at least I can pretend every now and then.

Inspiration is a wonderful thing


My fellow blogger, Rutabaga The Mercenary Researcher has nominated me for The Very Inspiring Blogger award for which I am greatly humbled.  There is something special about being recognized by fellow writers and knowing that your words resonate with them.

So there are some rules to follow….

'Tis the award ~

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person/s who nominated you.  

3. State 7 things about yourself.

  • I love a capella music
  • I think Valentine’s Day is a cash grab for businesses – we should celebrate that love every day
  • I don’t think I could survive without coffee, and I’m not willing to find out
  • I could never be a vegetarian
  • I am a die-hard NFL fan
  • I have expensive taste when it comes to red wine
  • I’m happy 99.5% of the time

4. Nominate other bloggers for this award and link to them

So many of you bloggers out there inspire me with your photos, your poetry and your words.   I wish there were more hours in a day to read and visit more blogs.  I need to win the lottery!!  Here are just a few that make me want to continue my journey.

May we all continue to receive the beautiful gifts of words and imagery from those magical places in our minds!!
