How Susan Got Her Groove Back

When Real Life gets in my way, the best escape for me is Outside.

An hour at Lake Isabella did wonders for my mood.

I feel like the only person in the world when I am there.

The sycamores stretched upwards into a perfectly clear sky. I felt the cobwebs in my mind blow away.

Little Miami sparkle
A million sparkles in the Little Miami dazzled me and brought tears to my eyes.

I couldn't decide if I wanted to be out in the open or dappled in random beams.

Baby robin
Two scolding robins alerted me to one sweet baby, knobby head quivering on a wobbly neck, like a perfect yellow blossom nodding on its stem.

I tried to capture my glowing mood with a self-portrait, something I never do.
self miami river
Not even close.

When in doubt, go to the woods. And remember:
Be Yourself

What is it about sun sparkling on water? ican't look at it without smiling. This is a lovely tribute to the healing power of nature. Cleansing power, too.

I agree, nature heals all. Glad it made you feel better, and your photos made me feel real happy, too.
