Hello Blog Readers,
I’ve added a new Menu, ‘Gallery‘ that is available from the Home Page. Not only does it have incidental pictures of my, family, and some friends, but I’m a serious amateur photographer and am just sharing some of my work with you for your enjoyment. It’s nothing more than a bunch of pictures that are provided simply for your enjoyment. Though I use professional cameras, many photos are taken with the cameras on my cell phones over the years, so all may not be suitable for any kind of professional use. Regardless, you can click on the picture for a larger view. I expect I’ll be updating and/or adding new galleries as my/our journey continues.
A list of my other hobbies is included in the ‘About Me‘ section that is also available on the Home Page.
All photos are copyrighted and may not be used for any purpose without my express permission. See copyright disclaimer below in my signature block.
Thanks for reading.
Wishing you much love and peace,
“Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” ― Mother Teresa

Consider sharing this blog with others. Victim/survivors of abuses, more often than not, carry this burden silently alone, not knowing how to deal with it or where to turn, but need hope. Loved ones and caregivers also need support. We never know who is or wants to reach out for help. This blog might be of help to caregivers and loved ones of abuse. Silence is deadly and if together we are able to help or save just one life, isn’t that worth it?

An excerpt from the blog The Effects of Sexual Abuse Never Go Away” – “ A child is likely to be left with strong feelings of anger, fear, shame, hurt and disappointment”.

Thank you for posting…Sharing intimate details is scary. Thank you for being so brave and for reaching out to others through this blog. I know much of your heart in this blog. Your openness and honesty is quiet beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
‘You make the reality of what you and other victims have suffered so very clear, but we all need to know that it happened. People want to help, we want to speak up and reassure, but sometimes, we just don’t know how. We are learning, hopefully. God bless you and your journey to complete peace.’
