In the light of darkness

Originally I was not excited about my drawing, I worked on in but eventually put it aside unfinished. Recently, I revisited the drawing, and realized I had to finish the piece.  The image coincides with my my daily ritual of writing my Morning Pages,  (Julia Cameron, Artist Way), the daily practice of writing 3  pages of long hand notes about anything.  Morning pages is a great tool for creative recovery and self discoveries.

“An emotional rubble of self doubt, negativity and fear… stumbling, searching, waiting for that switch to be turned on within, to see clearly in the light of darkness.”

Wandering inspiration

A weekend spent wandering around Lancaster, Pennsylvania. My husband and I spent time driving around Pennsylvania Dutch Country with a map in hand and no particular place to go. I was inspired by the historic towns, unique shops and sprawling farm land.  Along the way I captured some images that caught my eye.

Hope you enjoy the ride….


Lancaster has many covered bridges, 25 to be exact unfortunately we only found one.DSCF2948

Driving through Terre Hill, the delicate iron work at this cemetery caught my eye, had to stop and take a picture –  the clouds rolled in, in time for a dramatic shot.DSCF2951

A stop in Litiz. Chocolate!  Enough said…….DSCF2946
