Sunsets of Life While One EXITS the HIGHWAY!

What an amazing time in our lives right now. Invitation to visit my family in Canada was accepted and to hear my children state;  “Renovation in Progress”, makes my heart swell. Their renovations were our dreams of long ago! So thankfull we decided to exit the craziness of our lives, yes, exit the highway!back yard_fhdrYou choose to live, love and get up after the falls, even stronger.

CANADA 2013 001Saw these lilacs in their yard and their odor struck that chord of remembrance. Immediately it invoked memories of my youth. Didn’t care much about them then, yet today, latent joy,  skimming rocks and so thankful for every moment.

CANADA 2013 033Their scheduled canoe trip was definitely an eye opener. Nine couples venturing out with the most remarkable collaboration. One family had the trailer to help bring the canoes to the starting point, vehicles to transport, others bringing food for the end point and camera’s to capture the moments! Each participant sharing their talents for the benefit of the whole.

About Brenda

"Brenda adores the birds. She is enchanted with their grace, their beauty. It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" Eric Curtis Cummings
