Forced to take early retirement in February 2010 due to Chronic Ill-Health (including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, severe obstructive Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and debilitating back/neck pain from degenerative disc disease among other pain/fatigue conditions), my Photography hobby has been my lifesaver and become my Passion.
While I have some restrictions in walking and movement (especially bending, twisting or turning due to 2 lumbar spine surgeries), I feel blessed to be able to simply press the shutter button and capture scenes from my walks, to share online. Whether it be in Nature or on the Urban Catwalk, Photography is the creative art that sustains and enriches my life as the days pass by.
I never cease to be inspired and uplifted by the Light and Colours I see in Nature.
Living in Nature offers its healing balm to all who wander its many paths.
The ever-changing skies and cloud formations remind me of the Impermanence of Life and how important it is to live your life Mindfully, concentrating of what IS (not what WAS in the past and what MAY BE in the future).
Life is not a dress rehearsal. You don’t get to practice it over and over in the search for perfection before the Main Performance.
Life is about living the best you can with what you have, Right Now….in this very Moment.
“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
