Love technology yet for me it can create feelings of complicating my energy. Now and again I am trying to keep my life simple. Photography helps me to do that ~ to center and focus to avoid 'multi-tasking' and be in the now. 'Online' is like being caught by the 'mid way' at the carnival with each 'barker' vying for your attention. Social Media are the 'barkers' and I need to ignore them. I am grateful for my followers and my creativity in writing, photography and sometimes painting. Special pleasures in life that give me great joy that is what I would like in my life.

  16. That black and white shot could be used as a "story starter". I can imagine I am seeing so many different things in that photo. The water shots make me wistful. Simply lovely. And....yes, the barkers weary me too.
