Surfer Girl

My sister Patty McNally has taken up surfing. I have to find the quote about finding balance in the moment like it is infinity - that's what ducks and surfers do.

Just Back

Just Back from Florida. A visit with my mother and sisters, my mother is 87. This was her favorite painting at the exhibition we attended in Palm Beach.

Reading Mary Oliver

At Blackwater Pond the tossed waters have settled after a night of rain.I dip my cupped hands.
I drink a long time. It tastes like stone, leaves, fire.It falls cold into my body, waking the bones.
I hear them deep inside me,whispering oh what is that beautiful thing that just happened?

Lace Shovels

This artist creates lace wheelbarrows too - love her work, just forgot her be continued.

The Peonies

During the long week before Christmas and the slow week after Christmas the peonies wrote their own silent poem.


Spent my birthday in Rhinebeck, New York where we stumbled upon something magical called the Sinterklaas Festival. Here is a link to a video I made from my photos.

Judging the Holiday Windows

Walking through town before Christmas looking at each and every window. We are the worst judges - we like everything.


Time to return to my poor neglected blog. It's the beginning of a new year.
