among the fallen
scattered beauty
in the moment of leaving
such transformation

from the ashes
we rise
battered
but not broken
and better


This year has been quite the odyssey for me. A metastasized cancer scare in the early months of 2015 left me with enough berries of wisdom to feed me for a lifetime. Indeed, an intense, personal experience and one that made crystal clear, the importance of my life’s pursuits - most importantly, be with the ones you love (for time is truly limited) and promptly go do whatever you’ve been putting off. Sounds cliche - it is - and yet, it is not.

So, for the last several months, I dropped out of the virtual world and have been letting my creativity flow wherever it wanted to meander. I worked with traditional art tools and eventually returned to the digital ones but with a new flair and renewed excitement for my art photography.

Thanks to all of you that have continued to follow me in my absence. I look forward to sharing my work with you again.

JAPAN - http://dailywalks.com/japan/ (39 images)

Had a brief but beautiful visit to Japan recently. It was spent mostly in the cities. Not surprisingly, I sought nature and on the busiest of streets of Tokyo, and it was found. I discovered many long paths that led to ever-so-quiet sanctuaries and shrines. Parks were abundant and even the high rise buildings held their own mystic at certain times of the day. I hope to someday return to visit the special friends that were made and the countryside that was missed.

Hi Everyone. I'd like to share an artist profile video that the very talented Tracy Martin​ created. I met Tracy long ago when she and I first started photoblogging. The quality and sensitivity of her photography really moved me and and I posted a few comments telling her so; thus, the friendship began! She has since focused her skills on video-photography and has a special talent for weaving in beautiful imagery and storytelling. I encourage you to check out her website! http://www.tracymartinphotography.com

Thanks again, Tracy, for this gift!

often, it comes quietly
other times,
it arrives with a rumble
gliding in, uninvited
carrying a truckload of gifts 
that we can only appreciate later

Autumn No. 6 ~ Float Away

The California Oak Moths... are thick this year and they are sparing no time in munching away on the oak leaves, leaving the trees looking like it is winter rather than fall. They are damaging but beautiful. I laid on the ground and watched them flutter in the autumn air, wishing that I too, could float away…
