This is what life has become for many. The MONEY, the BLING, the make me FEEL GOOD DRUGS!!! it’s fun for awhile, they say, but it also can end your life real quick!!! Jail, streets, rehab…DEATH!!! Choice is yours…have fun!!!


money, drugs, jewelry, rings, gems, diamonds, sapphire, gold, sterling

I love the arts…nature…animals…
I find my peace while photographing
the beauty around me…
sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, animals,
the lake, architecture…
I also like to draw and back in the 80s, I loved all of the work by
Patrick Nagel, and I was doing drawings like his!!!

    I always have fun!! . . . lol
    When you spend most of your time in a farming village in the poorest part of Thailand, you get a completely different slant on the things that are really important . . .
    A roof above your head.
    Some food in your stomach
    Someone to love
    Love from someone
    All the rest is unnecessary luxury . . .
    It’s nice though . . . :-D
