Mere centimeters from well below zero C temperatures, this African violet flourishes on the windowsill above the sink.

Thank you

There are 110 followers of my very modest and unassuming blog. I started it as first a place where I planned to post about baseball, life, and various other topics.

It’s morphed into a place to post photos and to give thanks for the many blessings in my life. Good dogs, weather of all kinds, a snug little home, a place to garden. Most especially my marvellous good fortune in having my best friend, companion, wife, lover, Faye to share all of this good fortune with.

I also deeply appreciate your follows, visits, and likes. Your likes, your comments, means a lot to me and at times are what, more than anything, encourages me to continue. Thank you very much, each and every one.

Thank you


I want to thank every one of you who have taken the time to visit my blog and look at my photos. A particular, deep, and genuine thank you to every person who makes the time to like a post, to comment, to follow me in my mental and photographic meanderings.

I started blogging in June 2013 with the notion of posting less than random thoughts about a number of topics (see About Me for some of those topics). Beyond that I was unsure how, how often I would post, whether people would read, what I would do if no one visited.

Since then I’ve discovered, or rediscovered, an interest in photography. The blog has concurrently evolved into a place to share a few of my photos, and also evolved into a place to share my gratitude for seeing, looking, and appreciating the blessings all around me. My snug home, my healthy dogs, finding beauty in the remarkable and the mundane. Most of all Faye, my sweetie.

I passed 300 posts and 2,000 views recently. Thank you very much, each and every one of my followers. I’m very pleased that you find my posts worth your time.

This is a drama free zone, free of complaints, struggle stories, anger, strife. There’s plenty of that out there for folks who want or need it. Not me, thank you very much. I prefer peace, appreciation, and contemplation. Though you will see the odd post that diverges from the theme, I will continue exploring, expanding on, sharing, it.
