The Money Shot
Published on Monday, May 23, 2016 by How many times have you seen a picture that stopped you in your tracks?  One that was perfectly timed, capturing a moment that is not often seen, much less caught in a photograph?  I think every photographer dreams of that single once in a lifetime shot. This weekend I had my chance. AND MISSED IT. I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to take a picture ...
Until Next Year, My Beautiful Ocean
Published on Saturday, December 13, 2014 by Remember me? I ‘m still here! It has just been a whirlwind, as I’m sure it has been with all of you. Holidays… Bah! Last weekend was our final visit to Corolla until spring of next year.  This is almost a time of mourning for me. Leaving home is hard. Leaving the only place where you truly find peace is even harder. Saturday there was a cover of fog across ...
Living Incommunicado
Published on Thursday, February 13, 2014 by It is day 13 of the 28 day WWFC writing challenge.  My lucky number!  Today's subject is "incommunicado." Had it been four weeks since she moved to Corolla? She had given away nearly everything she owned, save for items she held close to her heart.  Children’s art, pictures, jewelry and books were at the top of her “must save” list. It was surprisingly ea...
You Raise Them To Leave You
Published on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 by The moment they are born, you hold them close.  Only to slowly let them go.  After all, a mother’s job is to raise her children to leave her.  The ultimate sacrifice. These last two weeks I've been quiet online.   However, my life has been anything but that.  The time I’ve been off, I have been preparing for my first bird to leave the nest.  Tonight, offic...
Over the River and Through the Woods…
Published on Wednesday, November 21, 2012 by … to Grandmother’s house, we gooooooo!  Indeed, tomorrow after work I’ll be packing my bags and heading to Corolla.  To Grandma’s house!  Technically, there are some woods.  And we will cross a few rivers.  But we’ll be taking a car rather than a horse drawn sleigh.  I’m just sayin. I took Friday off, leaving me with three full days at the beach h...
Where My Ashes Will Be Placed
Published on Friday, November 2, 2012 by Day Two, Nablapomada.  I mean… wait, let me copy and paste.  NaBloPoMo.  Oh what the heck… “The November 30-day Writing Challenge thing.”  Yea, that! The suggested topic?  It’s too easy to pass up. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Corolla, NC.  My mother’s beach house.  It is where my heart lives no matter where I am.  It is my esc...
A Weekend In Corolla
Published on Monday, June 18, 2012 by Day 18 of the Blog Writing Challenge brings the subject, “Setting Sail.” When I turn my car towards Corolla, I feel like I am setting sail.  There is a sense of calm that washes over me the closer I get to my mother’s Outer Banks home. For thirty years, these stairs have greeted us.  We have carried so much up these wooden steps.  Suitcases, coolers, babi...

Dog Flies Kite in Corolla!
Published on Sunday, April 3, 2011 by The beach, the beach, the BEACH!  This weekend was our first trip back to Corolla.  It was like being home again.  The peace I feel the moment I smell that ocean air is a gift.  One delivered directly from the man above. The spoils we found on the beach this weekend ranged from a bit of precious sea glass to a live (and now saved) blue crab.  We also found r...
Remember
Published on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 by She knew this weekend was her last chance to soak in the ocean’s healing salt waters.  A nip in the air foretold a change in the weather that she refused to acknowledge.  But Mother Nature, being fickle in her ways, blew in a storm that prevented that last final swim.  So she took solace in the warm sun beating down on her face.  In the salty ocean air.  I...
