Come Wander Along with Me...

I is simply what I do.  Since I was a young girl, my parent's tried everything to keep me close to home, going to such  measures as to buy me goats.  Though I loved my goats, my heart still  wandered.  

Growing up in rural New Jersey, I was surrounded by dense woods and long stretches of farm land to fuel my imagination.   I felt at home in the arms of the forest and spent many days laying upon the fragrant mossy soil staring up through the filter of leaves... watching the light dance.  It is these experiences that I work to remember.

In adulthood, I discovered the joy of capturing those precious moments, through my camera's lens.  Though the many years in between my youth and the present, I have enjoyed many wonderful adventures and am currently wandering in another people's land.  For the past 10 years I have had the pleasure of living in Europe and learning to look at life in a very different way.   

Through my images and my wanderings, I hope you will enjoy seeing the world around you... in a new way.

So...I invite you to "Come Wander Along with Me..."

Take Some Time Today and Remember…

Today while you gather with friends and family, making burgers and having cold drinks…..Please take a moment to think about those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, past and present.   Say a small prayer, sending loving thoughts, whatever you believe to those currently serving in lands far from home and the families whose hearts await their safe return.

Today and always they are in my heart.

The photo above I captured in Normandy France while working for the U.S. Army’s 1st Infantry Division.  I was tasked to travel with a group of Soldiers as they performed Memorial day ceremonies through out the country.  In this image we are standing on the bluff above Omaha beach, reading the names of 1st Infantry Division soldiers who died there in WWII.  I think the steady rain, hid most of our tears.

God bless and keep them all.
