What a beautiful place we live in. The colors were just beginning to pop this past weekend.

Recently I was given a new camera and I’m learning how to use some of the newer settings. This was shot on Vivid…so the colors would be more prominent.  I imagine this weekend they will really be in their glory.

This morning I am grateful for blue skies, cool air, sunshine, my children, family and friends.

Wishing you a day of gratitude and a moment of true inner peace.

Ciao!

From life in the fast lane to Gratitude…

Do you ever take a moment to ‘breathe’ and just sit with your breath and smile and be grateful for what you have?  I try to do this at least once every day.

I had a priest years ago…that would stop Mass at 12 noon … and remind us to give thanks for some thing, experience, person, blessing that had happened earlier in the day.

This is a wonderful reminder to step out of the fast lane and breathe….with Gratitude.

I’m giving thanks that my photograph of Max Patch was a true gift to my doctor and is now hanging in her office.

What are you grateful for?

A rainy day… finally

After weeks of 90 degrees or more, we finally have a respite of cooler temperatures and much needed rain in the mountains of Western North Carolina. As I awake on this Wednesday, I’m reminded that there is much to be grateful for and look forward to a day with some of my extended family.

Also, a reminder to those who are on twitter… check out the hashtag #CTWW (Change The World Wednesdays) .. it’s a small group of followers who have ideas about what we as individuals can do to improve the environment around us.

Enjoy your day! Ciao!

A Winter without Snow in the Western North Carolina Mountains

I mentioned this to a friend today…that said…it did snow some….I can assure you…it was like NOT having Any! I missed it!  I enjoy SNOW DAYS…those unexpected days where you wake up to 3″ or more and everything is closed down and you know you can stay home in your pajamas – drink hot chocolate – get dressed and go sledding if you want. Take photos of the snow in your back yard. I’ll try to find one to post in this blogpost. I miss it!  The flowers are blooming – the grass is growing and the trees are beginning to bloom as well. There’s even bees and wasps out…it’s NOT officially spring yet! And….my body is saying ‘what happened to Winter and the hibernation period’? Well…as far as the job front is concerned..it’s almost been a year since my layoff from the G.M. position of 10 years! The year has been a roller coaster to say the least. I thank God for the work I have and for those who have supported me through it.  It’s been quite a challenge and I sense that it’s not settled down for me yet.  I also give thanks for my husband, who’s been so supportive, my family and my friends. May you be enjoying your day/season and/or current job. Until the next post – ciao!

Fall is upon us and….

I have some new photos to share with you. Last week was a GOOD week at FALC. We had our first faculty/student luncheon…which was delicious and fun. I do hope to get this school up and operating at full capacity. It’s a great group of people….the Artists are wonderful and so are the students. To think this is the ONLY school in the USA that teaches the art of Fresco…amazing! And it’s located in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  Take a look at the photo I’ve uploaded from a recent weekend hike. Enjoy!
