Ten Seconds

If You Had Ten Seconds

If I gave you ten seconds to use however you wish, what would you choose?  On one hand, you may think, that’s not enough time, why even bother?  On the other hand, you might just think about a few things that could fit in that extremely small window. Ideas Jog in place Do some jumping […]

Laughter is Best Medicine

I Love You! 17 Day Challenge

I Love You! 17 Day Challenge! Saturday, October 28, 2018 my city of Pittsburgh was rocked by a crime of pure hate and evil.

Photography vs. The World

Photography vs. The World

I’m not certain if we realize just how much photography impacts our world.  It provides glimpses into corners of the world we may never see, it helps to preserve our memories, it shows us both the joys and atrocities all around us.  Sometimes though, they represent a distorted view.  The use of filters and apps, […]

Radical Change in our Minds

Is It Time for Radical Change?

”Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt.  So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, […]

Self-created fears suck

Self-Created Fears Suck

Disclaimer:  There are definitely real fears, such as immediate dangers and life-threatening moments (fear is the vital response to physical and emotional danger; protecting us from true threats).  However, it seems that so many of our fears are self-created.

Calm Chaos

2018 Calm The Chaos Photo Challenge

Sometimes, when needing to calm the chaos or tame (and conquer) our fears, we can find this comfort in the simplistic.  It maybe in certain colors, settings, patterns—really anything that gives us a sense of peace.
