Two Views

I love this view of the lake with the tree off center. Below is another view of the same tree only from a distance.

Here it sort of gets lost in the backdrop of the trees on the other side of the lake.

The white sand everywhere always makes for interesting images because it almost looks like snow in the middle of spring or summer or at least looks like sand that should be next to an ocean on the coast not next to a tiny lake in the midwest.

Saturday Lakeview

Got out to a new park today to take pictures. Haven’t been here in a few years. It is quite beautiful. It was very crowded but as you will see in the photos I will be posting in the next week or two you would think it was deserted. Patience and some precise zooming can help you work your way around almost any obtrusive subjects or objects.

Lake Photos and a What the Heck Moment

I heard them play Nirvana on the oldies station this morning and I was like, what the heck! I was barely an adult when they were popular and they are already considered an oldie. What does that make me 😳

What was your last “what the heck” moment?

Fall Trees by the Lake

There is a photo in this post. Sorry – if it doesn’t show up in your reader, you will have to visit my blog to see it. I have notified WordPress of this problem.

Many people live with chronic pain myself included. I have chronic migraine. I get anywhere from 8 to 15 migraines per month. Sometimes two in one day. I have tried eliminating all possible triggers and am on multiple preventative medications, but they seem to get worse year after year.

I used to get really angry about having them but that only increased my suffering. Now, I am at the point of acceptance which has given me some peace of mind even though they are still not pleasant to experience.
