5 Quotes to help you shine:

“In order for the light to shine so brightly,

the darkness must be present.” ~ Francis Bacon


“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are,

what you are, what you believe shine

through every sentence you write,

every piece you finish.” ~ John Jakes

Discover your gifts and let them shine!

Softball is amazing that way as a sport.

Everyone on the field has a slightly different 

ability that makes them perfect for their position.

~Jennie Finch

but for the wide world’s joy.” ~Henry Ward Beecher

Now is your chance to shine.

Pick yourself up, get to work and

get triumphantly through it.”  ~Ralph Marston

Do You Remember, FUN?



I am reaching out for YOUR HELP!

What are your thoughts on this?

Where do you suggest I start?

Do you struggle with this too?

Please share anything and everything!


Here is the background:

WordPress’ weekly photo

Challenge is here!

The subject is fun!

What is fun?

Do you remember?

In one split second,

Can you clearly define

Your current thoughts 

Of having a good time?


Instantanious visualizations

Of past events of me laughing

Quickly flicker, fast forward

Like a mini slideshow thru my mind.

But truthfully, when was the last time

Such a carefree occurrence, did I find

Myself smack in the middle of

Without a whole lot of prep and

Trepidation, battling inner fear?


What a scary thought, I am thinking,

That, it’s no longer my norm,

At what point did my life go

From heartfelt enjoyment,

To some type of dark storm?

Another goal to aspire to,

Again, a chance at #winning!

Then i saw these… and it all  made sense.




Kind Regards and winning – K

Go Away Grumpy

The morning sky was so appealing

As the sun colored it with gold.

I should feel jubilant

With a side order of ecstatic! 

Instead, I am cantankerous

I wouldn’t get in my way,



I finally discovered this beautiful waterfall

It was flowing over moss covered rocks

As I climbed just beyond the hill.

I should feel exhilarated!

Instead, I am cantankerous

I wouldn’t get in my way,




I came upon this tree, just lying in the woods

It’s limb form is unique, an eyeball or an O?

I should feel truly accomplished 

And be dancing around with glee.

Instead, I am cantankerous

I wouldn’t get in my way,



Well that’s enough of these grumbles

It’s time I pulled myself free!

I’ll make a list of things I’m grateful for

Along with a bit of practiced mindfulness. 

With background music, filled with upbeat song

And from past experience, I can guarantee

I won’t be staying cantankerous for long.

Soon, tho I’ll be singing, it’ll be slightly just off key

Whether it be right or whether it be wrong.



Kind Regards and grinning – K

Mount Holly, Vermont- Final The History


At the end of this post, there is a link to the

history and genealogy of Mount Holly, VT.

From two settlements that lived 3 miles from each other,

not knowing the other existed,

to the start of the Crowley Cheese factory

to the findings of a Woolly Mammoth’s remains.

It truly is an interesting and worthwhile read. 


Did you ever notice no matter where you go,

there is at least one in every crowd?




Elbow anyone?

elbow amongs the leaves

Or perhaps a moss heart ?

moss rock heart monster


I was so excited when I saw this thru the camera

lens!! I was so sure I had found a relic from history!

wheel possibly nope just a rock

When I walked around to the other side it was just a plain white rock!!

Nature is incredible!


Early morning deer tracks!!

They aren’t stupid, ya know.

Why go thru the thick brush

when some idiot human

built them a road?  🙂 4 deer tracks on road


For my flower and pink loving friends!

tiny pink bud


Singing “Sign, sign everywhere a sign….Do this don’t do that can’t ya read…”

That’s a mean curve!! Thought I was going back where I came from!


Old man in a tree?



Everyone loves a picture of a barn and a silo, right?



Wanna climb through with me??

culvert looking thru 8.7.16


There is always someone telling me where to go!!

Mount Holly, Vermont #1

The last weekend of July and the first weekend of August, 2016- I was extremely lucky to “get away from it all” to a friend’s family hunting camp, way up in the back back back woods of Vermont.

A place called Mount Holly. It sure has an extremely interesting history.  More of that to come later…



I didn’t have one anxiety or panic attack while I was there…

Even when I crossed this! The last pic doesn’t really do the

distance justice… it’s a long way down!!

But a beautiful cross country skiing bridge in the winter time.

When you are on a journey you come to a 

fork in the road and you have to make a decision….

And sometimes not.

natural forg


I kept looking for the fast ones….

slow bridge

I love to go to new out of the way places…

You just never know who you might meet!!

mr froggy


Or  perhaps Mr Elephant Head.



Every morning I headed up the hill toward the brook and the National Forest. There were a couple of awesome photo opportunity clearings through the trees. Each time I went there they looked different. All you had to do was move a few feet and things changed!

They were amazing!



One day it looked like this….


Another afternoon it looked like this.

gray white mountain not as gray

Breathtaking isn’t it!!

clouds above the hill framed nicely

To be continued…..


Kind Regards  and  traveling on – K
