Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression


Clouds conjure a spell
Swept away in breath of wind
Suspended…in a kiss

    • Oh thank you so much Victoria… so happy to know you liked it… yes the montone set the mood I was after for sure! Sending much love ~ and btw – now relating to your computer woes.. seems some water got on my Macbook Pro touch pad ~ not good … using IPad for now – but can’t do photo work on it…
      hope your doing ok !! xo R

        Sorry the hear about the touchpad issue, hope it recovers once it’s dry, but I wonder if the moisture might have ruined it completely?
        I can relate to your frustration at not being able to do photo work though.
        I love the Mac, but I have to keep ‘thinking’ all the time – using it isn’t easy or quick (yet). I just love that screen resolution though – modern technology is amazing.

        The Mac Pro laptop was worth every cent, just need a bit more practice.

      November 27, 2012 at 2:51 PM

  17. I spent a lot of my childhood at the beach so enjoy these immensely. And thanks for letting us know about “My Body Broken ” by Linda Greenberg. I can’t put the book down just picked it up from the library a few days ago. I thought of you when I went skiing-another “thank-you” for the encouragement, my friend. Live, Love and Laugh!

    November 27, 2012 at 4:05 PM

    • Thank you dear Jane! Yes – beach magic is always special!! Very happy to know you are enjoying Lynne’s book. I will need to re-read it soon too. I think that sets it apart from others I’ve read about the chronic pain joureney is her skill as a writer … and ablity to infuse the poetry and deeper philispopical sentiments into her memoir. It’s painful to hear the story, but also something beautifiul about the way she tells it. So happy you got to enjoy your ski adventure ~ loved the photo on your bog! xxoo Much LOVE ~ R

      November 28, 2012 at 12:20 PM

  18. & I wonder which is more powerful: the spell itself or the way you’ve spelled it:)

    Peace & Light

    November 27, 2012 at 6:05 PM

    • Interesting question Mira ~ to be spellbound is always a joy of life I believe ~ Love is always the most powerful force… Blessings to you dear friend ~RL

      November 28, 2012 at 12:22 PM

  19. I love, love, love this Robyn. So poetic. It radiates one true love. Just beautiful. And, it is a pleasant surprise to see the beach looking so clean and “normal” for a lack of a better word. So glad your beach fared so well from the wrath of Sandy. XOXO Robyn

    November 27, 2012 at 8:49 PM

    • Thank you so much Robyn!! Thrilled this resonated with you as a testament to love and dreams.
