THROUGH THE LENS WEEK 11

We are back! 

Through the lens I see myself healing slowly.

ArtMuse Dog is fine. She was never ill ~ it was me! ~ I will try and catch up with the wonderful comments you left ~ Please be patient with us. ~ Thanks, xoxo

Straight Out of the Camera



On our morning walk today these little flowers were popping out at us for I Heart Macro 2 link and  Little Things link.



A little better shot of our Cape Ann MA turtle crossing our street. It is a very quiet street and backs up to Ravenwoods (a protected area)

Linked with Camera Critters and Saturday Critters.



This little critter was crossing my street on Cape Ann MA as I headed out for dinner ~ needless to say I stopped. Neighbors were out on the street to protect her gratefully. Unfortunately, I only had my Iphone with me for Camera Critters link and Saturday Critters link.

'D' for Dog and guess who 'ArtMuse Dog' linked with Alphabe Thursday.









Nature on Cape Ann MA is always filled with joyful delights for Share the Joy Thursday link.

Being healthier each day is giving me much bliss.
Having ArtMuse Dog keeping me company on the couch, helped bring joy despite not feeling well.
My great friends Chris and Dave made homemade chicken soup to help each day.
Glad to be out walking with my Yorkie again.
There is joy all around us ~ the sacred in the ordinary ~ what brings you joy today?

We are wishing you the best in each day. xoxo

I am finding joy in cleaning out the last remnants of the past 30 years and getting ready to move my studio... home. Some is sad, but such freedom and lightness in letting go I am in wonder at the feeling in my heart. Thank you Carol. Hope the beauty you see makes you stronger and stronger. Pat the pup for me!
