Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression


When life offers the
gift of opportunity,
we must be ready to take that plunge…

And when we plunge–
let it be without pause,
with pure passion,
and with every fiber of our being.

    • Kudos to you Julie… don’t think i would have been so bold as to create philosophical statements around ducky photos before your encouragement:) This one just came right to me! Was a lot of fun to compose too. Yay for sparks of creativity! Sending good thoughts your way!

    Perfect words to match your photos.

    I have many images of ducks ‘bottoms up’ – I love this way of grazing on the food below the waterline.

  11. Thanks Victoria! So glad you enjoyed the post. Yes – the ducks were so adorable, lots of diving and dunking captured – but these 2 seemed to tell the story:)

    On the surface, this is completely adorable and fun. At a deeper level, this combination of words and images engenders a powerful message. And its obvious you followed your own directive in weaving your personal original quote to turn a pair of cute photos into something much more remarkable. Bravo!

  13. So flattered Ivy. Such a lovely comment. Yes, this was a fun post as had elements of both humor and life-wisdom. I am so glad you enjoyed it, and that the message and images resonated with you. I enjoyed exploring a different side of my creative spirit here. We all need a little lightness in our lives sometimes – yes? Warm thoughts your way!! RL
