I wanted to take just a moment to thank all of you for following my blog, or just visiting and giving such wonderful comments and encouragement…..your thoughts and suggestions have helped to move me forward….with my photography and my writing….
I wanted to especially thank, Bulldog……and Gina for encouraging me to DO something with my images and because of them I now have a site on fineartamerica.com With invisible wings helping me forward I’ve reached a goal that I had been putting off for a long time…so THANK YOU!!!
(If I could ever figure out how to link to someone’s site…..sigh….I’d give Bulldog and Gina proper acknowledgement….forgive me)
Digging through the archives again….here we have “the welcoming committee”…they ushered in spring several years ago.
Well, now that the squirrel has been crowned, (and I don’t think we’ve seen the last of him), I’d like
to share something with you.
I’ve LOVED photography for many years now. When I pick up the camera and see the world
through that lens, well, there is just nothing like it. I always say it “fills me up”. It’s
like I put in the last little puzzle piece, and I am complete. I am totally who I’m supposed
to be. I am so grateful that my husband “gifted” me with my first camera and encouraged me
every step of the way.
A few days ago I received an email that had me running through the house with excitement, waking
my husband up and disturbing the “marsh-mellow roast” that was taking place out back. Jelly and
his cousin were apparently playing baseball with the roasted “tasty-items”. I was not being negligent,
he’s 26 for goodness sake, who would have thought he’d be doing that..don’t worry the woods are
still standing, no fires.
Back to my special moment that I hope you don’t mind my sharing with you. One of my dreams, right in
between being published by National Geographic, and actually going on a photo expedition with them..
was to be published by the National Wildlife Federation. They do such excellent work.
Amazing all that they do for the protection and conservation of wildlife. Well here it is….
they published one of my photos!!!! Thought I would cry,,then wondered if
I’d be sick…..over-whelmed. So I hope you don’t mind if I share my happiness with you….
It just goes to show, you never know what could happen next, and sometimes, dreams do come true.
I’m going to put the link here and on the sidebar, so that I can stare at it whenever I want…
my little treasure. OH….Scroll down to picture number 8….
FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
