My Photos...



A sample:

inside the snowglobe on my mother's desk there was a penguin wearing a red-and-white-striped scarf. when i was little my mother would pull me into her lap and reach for the snowglobe. she would turn it over letting all the snow collect on the top, then quickly invert it. the two of us watched the snow fall gently around the penguin. the penguin was alone there, i thought, and i was worried for him. when i told my mother this, she said, "don't worry, catherine,he has a nice life; he's trapped in a perfect world."



Or two:

for much of my life i was not acquainted with what may seem the obscure derivation of 'sincere'. it is from two latin words, 'sine', without, and 'cera', wax. what a rare thing to be treated 'without wax'. my desire has always been to conduct relationships based upon honest regard. but it crossed my mind that to know others at a superficial level can be a desperate hell. and life becomes worth living only when the stain is stripped away, the polish, the wax... and we see the true grain of the other no matter how far less perfect, or ugly, even savage at heart....




Rhapsody...




i am
a continuous work in progress...
music. without it, i wilt.
motherdaughtersisterlover. friend.
these things define me. but do not chain me.
i widen my heart and persist in love,
the only purpose grand enough for human life.
because of this, my life is rich.
i almost always forgive eventually. but i never forget.
laugh.cry.remember.

Mother Nature, she is my heroine.

my daughters are teaching me everything
i may have missed
growing up.
i'm sliding on the rainbow of my childhood dreams

life is hard. and no one can convince me otherwise.
but i wouldn't trade my life for the world.
because it's made me who i am today.

i love to write.
those soul-searching-find-yourself-lesson-in-life types of stories.
occasionally, i will strike a pose.
i need to be needed.
i do speak up.

the cliche type line that nothing in life is a mistake
but a learning experience?
yeah, i buy that...

take a walk in my shoes, and i'll take a walk in yours.
ignorance is not bliss.

sometimes, i say 'i' too much...

i love
yellow and pink.
yellow and pink flowers in particular.
the sun the moon and all those shining stars.
digging a garden, planting a seed and watching it grow.
(wild) horses for their quiet strength, graceful beauty and spirituality.
the sound of ocean waves kissing the shore. over and over and over again.
angels. because there is something good in everything they see.
bees. the queen and all her attendants.
enchanted clover and a bee smoker.
happy endings. even if they are
far-fetched...
***
*****
but nothing ever truly ends...




nobody is perfect.
sometimes
you just have to
close your eyes
and breathe out
and let the puzzle
of the human heart
be what it is...
