Vacation // Myrtle Beach, SC

I’ve been stuck on vacation mode since vacation began last Monday, June 18th. I’m lagging!

Vacation was pretty fun. This was the first real vacation I’ve had with Mackenzie. We also brought along my best friend of nearly 30 years. I would’ve loved to have been able to do more while visiting Myrtle Beach, but I did enjoy getting out of my little southeast Georgia bubble for a week. Despite having my camera with me everywhere I went, I found myself enjoying vacation more and not really picking up my camera much at all. Here’s a few snapshots I did manage to take.



Paintings and Photography and Poems, Oh My

Ok, the photography will come later – it’s going to be the most showcased medium here.

Two thousand eighteen began on a high note. The high note, of course, being that I took a road trip to California. Let me just say, it was an incredible adventure. I knocked out some bucket list items, that’s for sure. I tried sushi for the first time (and loved it), I saw a beautiful Pacific Ocean sunset while in Malibu, enjoyed a Ferris Wheel ride on the Santa Monica Pier, walked the Venice Beach Boardwalk and gazed over Los Angeles from the Griffith Observatory. I’d share many more photos, but it was hard enough to narrow them down and choose these from the many photos I took while there.

For months I lacked inspiration and motivation to do anything with mv5.606.mwp.accessdomain.com. That’s changed, and I’m feeling some amazing creative energy right now, which has given way to finally dusting off this space and using it! I’m slowly adding some of my poetry and paintings.

While the rest
Of the world
Is deep in
Their sleep,
She stumbles
On the moon dust
Tickling her feet.
And while lullabies
Are sung
To eyes
Half shut,
The stars
Shine like
Diamonds
In skies dark
As soot.
Just as the
Sun rises
To cast its
First light,
She chases
The moon,
For she
Found home
In the night.

Be sure to check back from time to time, I’m hoping to launch my shop in the next few weeks which will allow you to purchase photographic prints and canvas prints, as well as some of my paintings.
