I am always amazed that each day the world seems to shrink just a little more. This is a photo of my daughter and her new bff, Sae’dah, who came to our little town as a foreign exchange student from Palestine. They’re exchanging sweatshirts with our high school logo on the front and their last names […]
My take on Dialogue is a little more literal, if that is okay. Before our trip to Venice last year, I practiced enough words in Italian that I was able to enter this gorgeous Venetian shop, speak with the lady in the photo, and buy these earrings made from Murano glass. She spotted me as […]
Found in an alley today at lunchtime…thriving between a rock and a hard place!
These are pictures I took in Corfu last fall, along the waterfront as we walked from the shopping area back to the cruise terminal.

The absolute best thing about spring is that winter is finally history!

This threshold may not look like much, but it is the beginning of a new life for my friend. She signed papers on this house, is renting it for now, and will close in June when her divorce is final and their house is sold. She’s already making plans to turn her dining area into […]
I’m digging into the vacation photo basket again, just because I was so taken with the charm of Venice and other coastal cities on the Adriatic that we visited. The top photo is a street scene from inside the old walled city of Kotor in Montenegro. The bottom photo is the only way to see […]
