Icy Blue

A shot from Gosau, Austria. It was chilly and the frozen snow cracked loudly beneath our footsteps. But the landscape was pristine, casting this icy blue hue onto the land. Quiet, without disturbance there it laid before me, while I breathed in the cold crisp air, admiring the beauty of mountains, glaciers and alpine lakes.

I am struggling a little at the current time and feel uninspired. Kind of hard to imagine, looking at this beautiful picture, but at the moment it is merely a filler, giving you something beautiful to look at. It’s another favorite spot.

Irene my friend, you are right and the lack of inspiration comes from the recent worries and stresses about Mom being in the hospital once more and not doing well. Today was a tough day, and while I need to, I can’t talk about it right now and all my attention and love is with Mom. Payers are definitely needed…thank you. ❤️

Last days of summer

As the last days of summer dwindle down, the temperatures have teetered between mountain snow and lakeside swimming weather. It poured rain last night and I loved listening to the rhythmic sounds of droplets splashing against my window at night.

Fall is a time to slow down and restore more stillness within. It’s a time to nurture and sit back with a cup of tea, or indulge in a hot bubble bath. It’s a time for cozy onesies and to snuggle up to comfort and a movie. Everything slows down and the struggle for making the most out of my days becomes even greater as daylight is getting shorter and shorter.

This week, I have found myself less inspired, and though I want to write, I struggle to find content I really want to talk about. Monday I dropped off Thundr1 (my car) at the repair shop. My fears were quickly confirmed and the clutch was in need of replacement. It set me back a pretty penny, especially since I am not working and still am trying to heal my body to function better. Tuesday I got to talk to Mom briefly after nearly not talking to her for three weeks, due to hospitals and iPad troubles. The next day she was already admitted back into the hospital for acute breathing problems. It’s a little like rolling with the punches this week and perhaps m spirit is a little dampened by the weather and recent news. Perhaps it’s just normal and we all experience writers block or times we feel less inspirational. It will pass in no time with better stories to report.

Take care of each other…❤️🙏🏼

Lake Tahoe Marina

I live in a beautiful area no doubt. One that has beautiful bodies of water, alpine lakes, and the mountains to play in.

Here is a recent picture of the beautiful blue waters at one of Lake Tahoe’s Marina’s. There are several Marina’s around the lake and it sure never gets old to visit. It’s like escaping, going on vacation in my own backyard with every visit to Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America.

Freedom Water-tower

A freedom message from a water tower in Reno Nevada


The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without restraint or hinderance.

Absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.

The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.

Listen and Silent

Another beautiful sunset picture, (aren’t our sunsets just gorgeous) and another play on words. We just dared to explore one the other day, talking about Heart and Earth being spelled with the same letters.

Guess what else is spelled with the same letters?

What about Listen and Silent?

Think about it….

Have a great week everyone ❤️🦋
