Signs of Our Times

I took an early morning walk, wandering past a nearby shopping center which was nearly empty of cars and people. That in itself was odd enough, but seeing the signs taped into the windows of the closed shops gave me such a feeling of melancholy. My walk was brightened once I was back in a […]

This and That at Home

As another day was passing with the Covid19 Stay at Home order, I got a little antsy and took more pictures of random things at home, my Hastings Cottage. This grouping of pictures is evidence I feel the need to document things, show to myself that I’ve done something during the day. It’s such an […]

Corona Del Mar, Before Stay-at-home Order

It’s been two weeks since I took these pictures, wandering along at a favorite beach spot. I’m glad I got there when I did because virtual trips are all I’ll be taking for awhile. It’s more important to stay safe and healthy at home while Covid19 works it way around the world in horrifying fashion. […]

New Orleans Journal

I finally had a chance to finish up the New Orleans journal that I started well before Mardi Gras. It’s blasting with bright colors and fun; is 9″ x 7″ with a soft cover made from a patchwork of dupioni silks, print satins, and laces. It has three signatures (sets of pages) hand-stitched into the […]

Hope, in spite of

With all that’s going on in the world, I felt these pictures, taken awhile back while visiting Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, would be appropriate.  I did a bit of editing while sitting on Hope Rock, adding “in spite of” with bits of twigs. Take care, stay healthy. ~SueBee

Rainy Day In My Garden

It started raining yesterday morning, and came down quite hard through the day and night. Lots more rain is in the forecast, surprisingly enough! I decided to take a walk before it really started to come down, and then wandered through my yard. I live in a mobile home in a senior community (55+) with […]

Borrego Springs Sculptures

I’d previously seen pictures of Ricardo Breceda’s famous metal sculptures, and really looked forward to seeing them in person.  As I shared in my previous blog post, I’d driven by his outdoor art gallery while en route to Borrego Springs. But, seeing so many huge, metal sculptures of ancient dinosaurs scattered across the desert was […]

The Eerie Salton Sea, part 2

Continuing from my previous post, I’m sharing more pictures from the end of the road in Salton City.  As further evidence of the area’s economic decline, here’s a picture advertising ridiculously low residential lot prices there. For Southern California, that price is nearly a give-away. The pictures in the gallery feature one home in particular. […]

The Eerie Salton Sea, part 1

After leaving Anza Borrego Desert State Park and the city of Borrego Springs, I drove through a very desolate, interesting landscape on my way to the Salton Sea and Salton City. I eventually came to a main highway crossing (CA-86) and decided to continue straight on toward what I thought would be the water’s edge. […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
