Lazy, Uncomplicated Days of Glorious Summer ....

Wow!?! It's been over a month since I last wrote ... Tempus Fuget.  Well, not much to say these day.  I've been wound up in the lazy, uncomplicated days of glorious summer.  That being said, I wanted to write to let you know that I am alive still and doing well. I just returned from a nice long vacation in my home state of Texas (after nearly 3 full weeks). During my visit we had gorgeous weather, with lots of sunshine and white clouds aplenty --very uncharacteristic for Texas in the summertime. Normally, Texas in the summertime has clear blue, cloudless skies, as far as the eye can see ...




 
Beautiful Day ... Ft. Worth Stockyards, Fort Worth, Texas ... Fluffy White Clouds abound ...

Anyway, I feel renewed after having had the opportunity to visit with all of my favorite people, family and good friends. I took way too many photos while visiting! It was FUN to shoot at the time, but sure leaves a heck of a lot of work for me to do in the post processing. I am trying my best to wade through the mountains of photos as we speak.


Speaking of photos ... while I was away, in Texas, I received word that my cemetery photo (of the one handed girl statue) was chosen for publication in the Seattle version of the Schmap Visitors On-line Travel Guide (12th Edition) .




"Angel Descending the Steps of Heaven", Photo By Me ...
from my "A Walk on the Wild Side" album, Lakeview Cemetery, March 2010 .



So I am, now, officially "published" and it is fitting, I suppose, as my last post was a tribute to my beloved grandmother, who has gone from this life onto the next ... And now, I am writing with good news regarding my love of photography and a photo representing the love and beauty found in a local cemetery. With this thought in mind, I dedicate this photo, and my "new-found success", to you my wonderful grandmother, Jeanne Dorothy G. . I love you and I miss you terribly, but I know that you are truly happy and at peace where ever you may happen to be.  Onto your next great adventure, no doubt.

Peace and Light to all who happen, by chance, to pass this way ...

P.S. I've done "Hansel and Grettle" ... now I'm going through the "Looking Glass" ...
