When I was a child, my mother always took sensitive pictures, and my father always told me bedtime stories.  As a parent, I started to write down the stories I told my children at night, and share those stories in their classrooms.  I also like to use a camera to help my children and others see the world in new ways.  We love to zoom in on a seemingly conventional sight - boiling water, raindrops on a windshield, some yarn on a carpet.  Other times, what I see as I go through my day is just too beautiful or interesting not to share - a sunset, a wave, an insect, a leaf, or in those special moments, a pair of laughing elephants!  Friends started to ask me to share my pictures and stories more widely, and this website is my first start at doing just that.

This bird sat high in a tree in our back yard for at least 40 minutes after I first noticed it. Just happy to have had the visitor.
