Annual Pig Roast

I am a vegetarian; I have been for many years. I stopped eating red meat on my eighteenth birthday, and stopped eating other meats one-by-one over a short period of time after that. For years I ate salad bars when I went out to dinner, to a point of getting very, very tired of salad bars. It used to be difficult for me to come up with healthy forms of protien that I enjoyed eating, but today I can find a delicious variety of soy choices both at the grocery store and often at restaurants. This week is my birthday...

Magic moments of light

In my photography and painting, it is the magic of light and shadow I love most and hope most to capture and communicate. When I look at life outside our livingroom window, or driving down a country road, or as I wait on the bank of the river by our cottage while my husband mows the lawn, I see bits and pieces of light at times that cause me to catch my breath because in those fleeting moments of perfect light I see God. In Western New York I find many magic moments of light in my mornings and evenings....

Summer calls

I have learned something new about summer this year; I have gained an appreciation for summer in Western New York which I lacked in Southern California. Here, summer is a brief moment in time to seize and cherish. That is how the season is embraced here. Quite a contrast to the attitude I held toward summer in Southern California. For some people, the long seemingly never-ending summer in Los Angeles is why they are there. For me, it is why I left. So here I am, living on a farm in Western New York, embracing a new attitude toward summer....

From the top of Pike's Peak, according to the inspiration behind "America the Beautiful", a person can see from sea to shining sea across the beautiful land that is America. Today, this 4th of July in 2007, we handful of bloggers have launched the Pike's Peak Project to give a view of America in word and photograph that does truly stretch from sea to shining sea. This project began as a tribute to my brother, Dan, who passed away just over two years ago. Dan loved America, the view from Pike's Peak, and the song that lies at the foundation...

Thank you to everyone who gave me a warm welcome home. You are such good friends; your well wishes always make my day. Being home again is an interesting experience, considering this has only been "home" for a little over a year now. What a feeling of "home" though. Oddly enough, knowing this place as home helped me feel more relaxed and happy visiting Los Angeles. The traffic jams did not annoy me in the least (and I drove in much traffic); the heat didn't get me down (in fact, it was cooler in LA than it was on the...
