Softly the Sun Rises.
Hope everyone is doing well. Writing taking priority these days. Another blog post up (link in my bio), "Fear, Faith and Feathers." Also waiting to hear back on a proposal for a Drawdown climate change solutions article. Exciting times. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. #sunrise #sunrise🌅 #pinksky #skyporn #instagood10k #instasunrise #instasky #reflections #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #lake #earlymorning #naturesbeauty #getoutdoors #cleanwaterways #nature_good #landscapephotography #colorsofnature #happyweekend #happyfriday #islandlake

Sitting Pretty.
One of the Brady sisters who I met the other week. I'm pretty sure it's Marsha since she pushed past the others to get to the camera! New blog post up, "Chickens Save the World." Link is in my profile. Reminiscing about my childhood on the farm, meeting my friend's chickens, regenerative agriculture and an inspiring project in Minnesota!

Blowing in the Wind.
From yesterday morning. I found this little feather and tried to place it on a daisy. It didn't work. I then released it into the strong breeze. It took several tries, but nature's art is always the best in my opinion.

Monday Mood.
So worth getting up early for this spectacular sunrise. Thanks to @sherroseart for the motivation. Sunrise on the lake is where we started our photography adventures a year ago. Wishing you all the best in your new home.

Chillaxing.
It's hard work being personal assistant by day and guard cat at night. She fell asleep during her bath. We can all relate.
Happy Weekend Everyone.

Shining a Light.
That's what I'll be doing with my blog now. Yes, there is a post again, and you can click on the link in my profile to view "The Satisfaction of Taking Action." Life has truly come full circle. I once had dreams of combining my interest in photography and writing by enrolling in a journalism program. Small town young woman didn't last long in the downtown of Canada's largest city. My life took a different road that has now somehow led me back to my beginnings. I will be devoting most of the blog to the stories of people trying to make a difference in their communities and for the planet. (Still working on the script and my fiction.) I hope you take a peek and enjoy it. Let me know what you're up to, and if you'd be willing to be featured! #landscape_captures #instalandscape #landscapephoto #sunset_vision #instasunset #countrylife #countrysunset #naturelovers #farms #climateaction #environment #savetheplanet #localheroes #takeaction #ourstories #bethechange #blogger #blogpost

Last of the Lilacs.
Almost missed them which speaks to how busy this spring has been. In today's teaser, I'm off to do my first ever interview and photo shoot. I hope the chickens cooperate. (I am the interviewer and chickens are not mine.) Stay tuned...

Western Wednesday.
It was actually the weekend, but heard it was a thing! What a fabulous day with a great group of people. They have totally adopted me, and I now have a western saddle to go with my dressage one. In order, Allyson @allysonnicol & Harry showing some bling, Julie & Josephine rocking the bridge, Kayleigh @kayleighpb and Kasper aka the giraffe, Tricia & Christi kicking dirt, Kenz @kenz_harvey & Bubba the baddest boy, finally Jodi @jodim24 & Chesney, best coach and trainer ever! Not bad for my little 18-55 mm lens and a huge ring.

Sunset Tulips
Spring is finally here! These are in my front garden. I love these naturalized tulips so much. There are more of them every year. A holiday Monday here in Canada. Have a great week wherever you are. #tulips #tulips🌷 #flowers #flowersofinstagram #tulipsofinstagram #springflowers #springgarden #backlight #backlighting #springcolours #instaflowers #happylongweekend

National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.
I can't imagine life without my goofball, Sadie. I've always gone to shelters to adopt, and somehow they know it's a second chance. Unconditional love like no other. Adopt-a-pet today. #nationaladoptashelterpetday #adoptashelterpet #adoptasheltercat #adoptdontshop #sheltercat #rescuecat #calicocat #unconditionallove #somuchfun #lookatthatface #adoptapet #yourlifewillbebetter

Sky is the Limit.
The only limits on life and love are the ones we impose.
Several months ago, I had a silly idea based on several news headlines. It wouldn't go away and evolved into something much more. I didn't know how to proceed until I saw a NYT article on the lack of climate change movies with heart. Disaster flicks and documentaries were the only choices. This was my call to action. I signed up for an online course and started writing the script Voices in the Wind. Climate change and the Arctic are the backdrop to a story about friendship, survival, and life's purpose. I truly feel that this is the story I was meant to tell. No matter what happens after I finish, I have let my mind and heart fly free. The possibilities are endless.
