same walk but different

When I read this sentence on my friend Frieda's blog, "I walked the dogs clad only in jeans, t-shirt and my Crocs, instead of weatherproofs and wellies and my camera has been in my hands for most of the day too" -- I laughed! That could have described me the other day too, across the pond, as she is in Scotland and I in the USA .... the same walk, but different.

I too, was wearing jeans, a T-shirt and Crocs, carrying my camera and walking my dogs! I wanted a more updated photo for my profile page, so i tried taking some photos of myself; not the easiest thing in the world to do, but i had fun. For a while now i have been walking about a half an hour with Asia and Chloe pretty much on a daily basis. It gives me time to think, and brainstorm art ideas, it gives me needed exercise and fresh air. I feel i really miss it if other things take precedence. I love receiving the calming effect of the nearby forest and find a certain peacefulness which i need . . .


  1. And what is even more amazing is that I use my walks for just the same reason as Lenna, to think things over, get inspiration for my art and very often also to calm myself down.
    I think you've succeeded marvelously with your self-portraits. I love the one where you cuddle the dogs!

  2. Oh you too, loved reading this...

  3. Looks like you have a kindred spirit Lenna> I think that is something special, wondrous, and amazing!
    I adoooore your pups, and you look so naturally comfortable in these are at home .

  4. Lenna you look lovely. I purchased a quiltie course from you earlier before your move. Just checkin in on ya! :-)
