In April 2019, my husband and I decided to play tourist for the day in Hollywood, California. My husband found this organization who was doing a Jazz Tour Walk through Hollywood and paid for us to participate. We must’ve walked 5 miles. I really don’t know the exact miles but, we walked a lot.
The tour guide is a journalist. The organization putting on this walk hired him to be the guide. The journalist did some deep research to learn all he could about the history of these Jazz Legends. He told lots of stories about these Jazz musicians/singers. One Jazz artist was a drug addict. One was a criminal. There was a lot of disreputable characters involved in the Jazz history. There were also some great and awesome people involved in Jazz.

I love Summer flowers. I love color. I love nature.
I was invited by a friend to visit a local garden. I accepted. This image is my favorite capture of the day.
Why? You wonder. Everything about it intrigues me. The colors, shapes, sun light, shadows, and a worm. What’s not to love? It’s life. I love life.
What adventures have you gone on this Summer? Like the worm on the flower traveling. It’s a great adventure.
This image is part of my Project 52 collection. I know, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Life has a way of dictating how things will happen. I just go with the flow. It’s less stressful that way. So, I may not reach 52 images for this project. No matter. The point is to enjoy capturing and creating along life’s pathway.
I’ve always loved Vincent van Gogh’s artwork. Recently, I saw one of his pieces, here, that’s similar to this piece.
I decided to create my take on his piece.
I’ve been working on improving my art skills. Not just photography art. I’m relieved that art can be blurred, it can be imperfect, and anything you want it to be. It’s an inspiration that as long as it helps your soul some way… it’s on!
What have you branched out to try new and develop it into more? I’d like to see what you’ve been doing. If not, why? What’s holding you back?
Yay! Bath time.
When I was a little kid I loved taking a bath. I loved the water.
I remember being so excited to about my bath that I’d splash the water. I loved to watch it splash up.
The other thing I loved is going to the swimming pool and doing the cannonball off the diving board and make the water splash up high. I loved hearing the screams of excitement from everyone!
That’s what this art piece reminds me of. Aren’t these kinds of memories awesome?
I love the feeling of happiness. Don’t you?
What’s holding you back from feeling happy?
There’s always angels in our midst.
They’re God’s messengers and our guardians.
Some angels help us.
As guardians, they protect and guide us.
God uses angels. He sends them to give us divine messages.
Whatever they do it’s because God ordered them to.

Well, here we are. Two of us at the Lavender Farm. The clouds provided great filtered light. The bees were buzzing and busy visiting different blooms creating pollination. They were fast. They were hard to capture in the camera. The mystery of … Continue reading
Time. It seems like it goes by so slowly. Then again, it seems to go by so fast. Either way, time does go on.
In this instance, it’s frozen. It’s eternally frozen. The beauty of frozen time bursts forth. There it is. Its shapes and size are intriguing. Its colors fade in and out. It’s deep. It’s shallow. It’s whatever you make of it.
What do you see? What does it mean to you? Let your imagination flow.

She’s kept to herself. She’s been in hibernation.
The time has come for her to emerge. She’s seeking nourishment. It’s been so long since her last meal.
As she emerges her beauty also emerges. She’s one of a kind. What is she?
That’s up to you to decide! She’s whatever you say she is.
This art piece is from Project 52.
This piece is also for sale in the art store, as well as the Cafe Press store.
The flame of love burns with a great passion in my heart.
I dedicate this art piece to my husband, who I’ve been married to, today, 2/13/2017, going into 18 years.
We’ve stood up through some harsh times and continue to stand together.
I love you, Paul M Edwards! Happy Anniversary and Valentine’s Day (even though Valentine’s Day is tomorrow).
