The Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse

On our drive to an event in New Hampshire a few years ago, we made several tourist-y stops. One of our favorites was the visit to the Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine. A glorious warm day in early

Corfu Kitty

Well, your fantasy has come true, and there you stand right smack dab in the middle of the Greek Island you’ve wanted to visit since you were a kid. Corfu. Read a book about it when you were little, and

Moonshine On The Snow

A wintery scene, an old stone barn surrounded by snow-laden fields all lit with the magic of a full moon … a scene from my imagination … and from my life. I can remember sitting in the backseat of the

The Summer Cottage

My family and I lived not too far down the road from this little vine-covered cottage for nearly 30 years. Though she’s long-deserted and becoming quite dilapidated, she fascinated me. Even if the sign on her door’s message is an

Calico Kitten

An adorable calico kitty sits on the edge of the porch on a gentle spring afternoon. I can’t help wondering what has captured her attention. The lawn and garden are dancing with butterflies and moths, enjoying the warmth of the

The Barn Over The Hill

The morning dawns bright and crisply cold after an overnight snowfall. It brings the golden sunshine and a sharp, strong wind which blows the light snow across the fields and uncovers the stalks of the previous season’s now harvested corn.
