From my Paradise.................. by 

One year ago today, I posted a birthday wish for our friend, imagic!!!! And YES!!!! he is celebrating another birthday today….. Lucky us!!!!! He has traveled all over the world and has shared his wonderful images with us!!!!
My wish for Jens today is that he have cake and lots of “bubbly”…. and plenty of coffee…. and a wonderful day with family and friends!!!!
So, from across the ocean…….
Happy Birthday, Jens


Image of this Bird of Paradise was taken at Venetian Bay, Naples, Florida
A wonderful day full of sunshine and wonderful views of my new area, my paradise!!!

bird of paradise, birthday, florida, imagic, tropical

The art of collecting the interesting and intriguing things of this world and bringing excitement of the possibility of “freezing” that moment in time are the reasons that my eyes have broadened to look under and over and in between the winds of the nights and the lights of the days…… Come walk beside me and we can be the “sunshine” for this season in time……….. just walk beside me…………..
