I miss having access to my computer.  I have new work, but no way to share it with you.  We've landed and been caught by our community in Portland.  I have a Primary Teacher and Director job at a lovely little school and just started training this past week.  Eric is interviewing.  Things seem to be on the move.  

Our littles stayed behind with Grandma and Granpa for stability - we're doing this leap of faith style without jobs lined up and selling everything we own to go home.  So far, we've been so supported and loved.  Here's hoping the good juju carries us through and we land soon.  I miss my babies something fierce and though the blessings are flowing, it won't feel like home until my little family is back together again.  Until then, I'm just hanging out in this strange space mid-leap and trying to stick the landing.

Life feels a bit surreal.

Glad you made it and things seem to be settling... I've got a laptop you can borrow if you need a computer for a bit.

On the road, moving home. Run fast until you're there.

this is my first home. Childhood. Cali, baby.

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right


Mr Kiki hooked up the computer.  We're still couch surfing and setting up our lives, but now I can post pictures again!   I  have to say, I got kinda spoiled using the school fancy pants Mark iii.  Going back to my janky little T1i has been a reminder in just what you can and can't push with tech.  But as always, I court the chaos.  

Happy Spring, Blossoms!

Just Checking in. It's been two weeks - we've been in Portland for 1. We are still couch surfing and probably will be for another month at the very least. Eric is still looking for work. I have accepted a job as a teacher and director for a local Early Childhood Center that I absolutely adore and is 100% in line with my philosophy of care. Things are going nicely and we have been very supported and blessed. I am thankful.

Here are a few shots from Oregon - cellphone because I don't have my computer up and running for edits on the "big camera." I am in constant awe of the beauty and so very thankful to be home.

Happy +FloralFriday Y'all.  I'm in the middle of my move back to Portland, OR.  As in, we leave tonight!  So, this is a quick post to give some flower love from me and the #Floralfriday  crew +Eustace James +Beth Akerman  and +Tamara Pruessner (Bye Tam.  Come hang in Portland)!  

Tucson, I will always be tied to you in my heart.  You have changed me forever.  Thank you, Big time.

“We the mortals touch the metals,
the wind, the ocean shores, the stones,
knowing they will go on, inert or burning,
and I was discovering, naming all the these things:
it was my destiny to love and say goodbye.”

#Allthingsred  and #Floralfriday  are quite the team today.  

+AllThingsRed with +Liz C  and +FloralFriday with +Beth Akerman +Tamara Pruessner +Eustace James and me.  


I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. So, I draw attention to myself. I’m not afraid of other colours, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness. How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! Behold how wonderful to see. I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me. Have faith in what I tell you.” 
― Orhan Pamuk, My Name is Red

Introduction
 I am a photographer because it is in my blood and bones to want to make this art.  I photograph anything that captures my fancy.  Most of my work on here ends up being pieces and components to my Fine Art prints.  I shoot digitally and print in the 19th century Alternative Processes.  I like that crazy mix of old and new.  It just does it for me.
