Adventures of Life

In the midst of chaos


I feel like I am caught in the moment just before you know the really bad thing is about to happen. For example as a young child I was chasing after our 150 pound dog who was having a blast chasing after a jogger. I don’t know if you’ve ever been pursued by a 150 pound black dog whose bark is so deep it causes every bone in your body to vibrate. Either way you may know why this jogger wasn’t stopping for my shouts of “he’s friendly!” You really don’t want to take the moment to find out if it’s true. As I peddled furiously down the road my mother drove past me and stopped to grab the dog. I knew before it happened that I was in a dangerous situation. As my front wheel passed the back bumper of her car she opened her door. It was the cartoon moment! My bike collided with the drivers side door catapulting me over the top of it. I remember flying through the air and thinking “oh no this is going to hurt!” as the asphalt came up to meet me.

Right now I am running around trying to gather all my stuff up for a weekend adventure to South Carolina where I will attend a wedding and promptly turn around and drive back to New Hampshire have one day to put the last of my stuff in order and hop on a plane to California. I am sure that somewhere in this mix a car door is going to open and launch me in some unexpected direction.
For now I will continue to gather my wits and try to appreciate the small things the world puts before me!

  1. Maybe it’s about time to bike on the wrong side of the road? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I really love the last picture!

    • Thanks! I was leaving work one day and as I walked through the field I noticed these water drops on leaves. As I started to drive away I couldn’t shake the feeling I was missing something. Turned around and took the extra 30 min to crouch down in the wet grass to play photographer!
      I’ll keep working the macro angle!!!

  3. Thanks again! Macro work is what I love doing. My photography page is linked in the upper right hand corner of my blog, I think ๐Ÿ˜‰
