The Week In Seven Photos

Over the last week we have transitioned again and are now practicing aggressive social distancing and visits to the park are a thing of the past for the near future. I thought following the recommendations and maintaining that six foot distance would leave me with a little sense of safety, but as our state rapidly…

I’ve had to think often about the great Jimmy Buffett lyrics “if we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane” this week.  So, on a lighter note during these frightening times, my husband and I have been retired together for many years and one of the main ingredients to spending so much time together is that…

As a lifelong introvert, one would not imagine that in my midlife years the phrase social distancing would have such an unsettling effect.  Many a day I have preferred the company of my dogs over people and the thought of not receiving any invitations in the mail to large gatherings makes me smile. The quirks of…

There were signs of spring everywhere this week and, as more birds flew in, the air was filled with squawks, honks and songs from all the new arrivals, but unfortunately the only sign of flowers remain indoors. As the news concerning the coronavirus worsened throughout the week, there was the question regarding other than places…

Often when I look back at the week, I try to concentrate on the simple enjoyments of life, but sometimes the universe makes you look at things more seriously. As the political season continues to go off the rails in the midst of the CDC warning this week concerning the Coronavirus, it felt like the…

Harper was so excited to hear about the return of Bryce Harper this weekend with the beginning of baseball spring training that both ears went straight up in the air,  but then again they could have been from standing too long in the bitter cold wind admiring the ice. We won’t have to be envious of…

So, this week should only be about celebrating that Harper is one year old, but I discovered my first gray hair this week and while initial thought was it’s because I’m old, I would rather blame surviving a year with a puppy at this age. I tried the Harper excuse for old age on my…

One never knows what thoughts you may reflect on during a photography outing, so on a cold winter morning after watching episodes the previous evening of my favorite tv shows this year, Prodigal Son and Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector, I was surprised when thoughts turned to career choices.  For years while I sat…

I’ve always loved the wonderful seasons in the beautiful Great Lakes State, Michigan, but after wandering around and consulting with a few year-round locals and winter guests, it was a unanimous vote that this might have been the ugliest January weather on record.  As I’ve been going through my photo library lately, I was reminded…

While I was out wandering on a cold winter day this week, I thought about comfort levels and my first thought was that I’m not comfortable in this freezing weather since I keep failing to wear the right winter clothes.  My next thought was how do some appear so calm when others, usually like me,…

There was a moment this week with another day of dreary gray skies and the talk of diets, organization and taxes constantly on the news that I thought no wonder January is such a long month.  I’ve always believed in maintaining balance, somedays that does require a chocolate chip cookie in each hand (especially if…

Harper and I are still on our path of optimism, but after so many years living on the other side of the fence we’re a little hesitant about this new direction and following these footprints.   After a migraine this week, I’m wondering if too much optimism along with actually having snow during winter may…
