I have always wanted to shoot a moose... with my camera. They are huge animals which can be aggressive and dangerous. They are also majestic and fearless, qualities I have always admired. A few years ago, I freaked out and fumbled with my phone as a cow and her calf pranced by the liftline in... Continue Reading →
Creepy or What?
A couple of weeks ago my husband Danny and I drove up to the Mount Grays and Torreys trailhead. My SUV wound up the steep dirt road so slow a granny with a walker could have passed us at times. While struggling over rocks and pot holes in the comfort of my Toyota Highlander, I... Continue Reading →
Is it safe to go back in the water?
When I read in the newspaper that Jaws would be shown at a local pool, I had to go. The last time I saw it in its entirety was in a Madison, Wisconsin theater in 1975. When a bloated dead guy floated out of a capsized boat's window, I kicked the seat ahead of me... Continue Reading →

Flashes of memories will surround me after focused time with my parents. The clarity I have now will dissolve after returning to Boulder. Like... Continue Reading →
Ephemeral - Lasting for a very short time. Isn't all of life ephemeral? Is seeing believing or do we only see what we believe? It's all smoke and mirrors, even at the Denver Cheesecake Factory. Nothing lasts forever. I know. This one is super cliché, but I couldn't resist. Ha! Which is your favorite? This... Continue Reading →
A Fresh Flashback!
We probably won't take a vacation until May, so I've been drooling over my vacation photos. These are a few I took in California last year. I miss the fresh sea air, the farm-to-table restaurants and the blending of architecture, art, and landscape found at the Getty Museum. I hope to visit again soon. My... Continue Reading →
