About Me

My photo
i moved where my heart had drifted off to long before. i live on a hill of hundred acres, where my dreams have merged with the view. it is quiet from machine noises yet loud with sounds of horses, dogs, cats chickens and ducks. nature is the true artist in resident and i am just her apprentice who often gets lost in her gaze. once and a while i travel back to cities and foreign places to put into photographs what i have learned, yet always, part of my heart is left on the hill..

i am grateful for the sound of the fiddle you played for me
i am grateful for running into you and your orange shorts
i am grateful for the light that pours into this house
i am grateful for the taste of lemon on my lips
i am grateful for feeling things without feeling things
i am grateful for the tears that are brought on by your harsh words
they gave me a fever.

i am grateful that i am not dead
i am grateful that i am living.
i am grateful that in the rain i do not get wet
i am grateful that is so much more to learn, to feel to express
i am grateful that.........the funniest songs can be played on pandora
i am grateful that i did not kill bees.
