This past Sunday was the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Half Marathon and Marathon, but today’s story starts a little earlier than that… then it takes a couple turns. 🙂 In 2008, not even a month after I signed up with Team In Training, I volunteered to help them with the “half marathon finish line”… Continue reading It’s a Rock ‘n’ Roll Story
The Civility Party yields… Many moons ago, I sat in the best English class that ever was. Although my teacher would probably gasp at my use of “was.” One shouldn’t use dead verbs after all. Two sides co-existed: Civility and Dignity. Each day began with a greeting and a Quotation Reflection. Each day, a student… Continue reading On Measures
Have I ever told you that I’m a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fan? (Well, let’s not be limiting, I will watch just about anything Joss Whedon is involved in.) Some of you are probably well aware if you know me in real life. Haha. I think of the subject line quote (from one… Continue reading “I like time. There’s so little and so much of it.” [Pay Attention]
I know I’m SUPER behind in blogging/updating (SORRY!), I promise that will change, but I wanted to pop in with a quick and important update. I HAVE REACHED MY FUNDRAISING GOAL! THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!

“Please teach me gently…” How to be as calm as the harbor waters… To be the light that guides… To have and reflect strength… To not shy away… To navigate safely… To savor the view… To know where to find shelter… “…how to breathe.”
This road is anything but simple Twisted like a riddle I’ve seen high, and I’ve seen low So loud, the voices over my doubts Are telling me to give up To pack up, and leave town But even so I had to believe, oh Impossible means nothing to me So can you lift me up… Continue reading Just Begun
In honor of an angel that flew to heaven five years ago today, I present a couple of “reruns” and ask you to please join the bone marrow registry, pray it forward, donate blood, and help raise awareness. Help find a cure. May 7, 2008 “I was fifteen years old and just a few weeks into… Continue reading Five Year Angel Wings
“You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” -Winston Churchill I don’t remember the first time I heard this quote, but I know that it has stayed with me since that moment. My best friend started a team to walk for lupus. When I walk with him… Continue reading Walk for Lupus Photo Fundraiser
“I am imagination. I can see what the eyes cannot see. I can hear what the ears cannot hear. I can feel what the heart cannot feel.” -Peter Nivio Zarlenga I haven’t disappeared, I’ve just been working on a recent session. I loved the simplicity of this shot though and had to share it here.
