Fear Not. Worry Not.

“If you want to test your memory,
try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today.”
– E. Joseph Cossman


Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
~Matthew 6:34



Photography Workshops

I had the opportunity to tour MountainLens during a studio tour last weekend.  I met Jeff Miller and April Johnson at the local Camera Club of Hendersonville.

April does a beautiful job of photographing pets. Take a look at Asheville Pet Photography. She spoke at the Land of Waterfalls in Brevard. I thought it was great that in her presentation, not only did she share her work, she shared the process. Dog slobber and all 🙂

Enough love to go around.

20170819_153534-smWith all affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma building, I’m well aware of those who feel there are enough needs right here at home- we are all so blessed simply living in the US. I pretty sure even if we only give of our time and prayers, that we can show love more than just those here at home.

We’ve only received the one fill-in-the-blank letter from Sofia but we did get an updated photo. I’d love to see a smile on that beautiful face! #CompassionChild

Delusional quitter

I don’t usually quit once I set my mind to something.


Me resting on an unknown trail from the late 80’s or early 90’s. I do think we went to the top that day.

As a kid, my dad who hated crowds stood in the hot sun with me to ride Space Mountain. After we finally got up to a cut out where you could see people on the roller coaster I chickened out – same thing at Sliding Rock. Both of those were because of fear.

Finding the perfect camera bag

I need a new bag just a tad bigger than what I have that will also carry my tripod and water for longer hikes. Since we don’t really have a camera store nearby to go try some one I’ve been ordering too many but haven’t found the perfect one for me and my gear yet. To keep from paying return shipping on each bag…. I’ve listed them for sale on my website but they are only available for about 30 days when I have to return them to the stores for a refund.

Lots of other items too, for house, yard and garage- some items from my closed retail store too.
