Imagine driving home, singing along to the latest worship music with joy in your heart as you sing onto the Lord, and the heater blasting winter’s cold from your bones. For a little while, you forget where you’re going, until your road appears before you. At a moments notice, you remember the need to get…
I know you’re coming, your presence doesn’t exactly hide off shore very well. It lurks in the grey shadows, prowling deep waters, waiting for the right moment… to soak everything in its path.
Rain rapped on the window ten inches from my head like an angry neighbor, trying to wake me from a deep sleep. I rolled towards the sound, realizing that there was so much more happening beyond the shade. Dorothy and Toto could only endure the whipping wind accompanied by dancing cats and dogs in the…
You bring a smile across my face when I look at you, while long shadows stretch across my living room. I imagine standing in your light barefoot, just beyond the window pane; my feet propped up on the railing, the breeze playing on my skin and the feel of your heat on my face. Then,…
Against the odds, we made it to shore a little broken, but together we survived the roar of wind and water.
You appear on the edge of life and winter, while I squat behind this tree, saving me from frostbite.
Winter’s Tempted Reality
This morning, I stand in a one butt kitchen with sunshine yellow walls, as though it will put me in a happy place while I gaze out the kitchen window at blowing snow and drifts it’s created. I’m tempted to let my feet lead today; bundle up and get outdoors, in the 9° and feels…

Cold winds and dancing snow leap and shift in light beams before me, inches above the black asphalt. Its sparkle and white pull me into a story, on this dark morning. I am mesmerized by its sway and treasure the moment, so much so, that I forget I am driving, until a change of red…
Where Are My Shoes?
Summer is here, well, almost; It’s so close you can touch it. This season is not just a day on the calendar, it’s a time of no agenda days. If I ask my eldest niece, she will tell me how many wakes ups until school is out. For her, it’s the look forward to sleeping…
Wind, Rain, & Repeat
Wild gusts toss me side to side as I race barefoot across the asphalt to capture this shot in a rainstorms lull. It was the perfect time to sneak the blue sky reprieve before the next rampant storm approached, which registered up to 50mph wind gusts and horizontal rain.
Stepping into the White
Anxious snowflakes that are but dust fall from the sky feverishly covering the earth, layer by layer. Darker the sky became until I could no longer tell the depth of the snow. Oh my! I wonder what tomorrow will look like? I say to myself, as I watch in bated breathe, car lights inching closer…
