Have you ever?

stepped on a plane and found yourself transported to another world?

where wild horses wander amid the ruins of a great island estate?

where the shadows of trees hold anhingas and wood storks?

and life birds fly past in squadrons of color or shades of gray?

where gators smile to lure the unknowing closer to the edge of their world?

where pelicans pose dockside for a portrait?

have you ever lost your breath to the beauty of a sunrise?

(I have!)

I'm like an 11 year old just back from sleep-away camp with a hundred run-on sentences about everything I saw, everyone I fell in love with, every little thing I did... words and photos are just beneath the surface... just waiting for my head to stop with all the spinning.


I'm also painfully slow to process new experiences which is why I talk in lists and pictures, sometimes.

Bear with me...

Yep (except for the horses among the ruins bit). Pretty cool huh? And it never gets old.

Great shots.

Sounds wonderful, and many times it made me think of living on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. :)

Have ears and eyes, will wait.

Sounds so wonderful. Take you time to process it all, and savor every minute.

All this in New Jersey, the "Garden State". Wow.

Yeah right. I have lost my breath at a sunrise, but it is usually as I drive past the refineries along the NJ Turnpike.....

Clapping for you, Laura! I'm giddy for you. I talk in pictures and lists a lot, too ;-)

Holy moly. That first picture blew me away. It's like some sort of Van Gogh painting on acid or something.

I love your blog, man. LOVE. IT.
