Viva Italia!

~*~

I have so many fond memories of my travels to Italy. This beautiful country has inspired my growth as a human being and my creativity as a photographer. For that I will always be grateful.

Here are just a few images as a loving tribute to this richly cultured country as it negotiates this unprecedented moment in its history.

Viva Italia!

Be safe, everyone. Stay home if you can. Together we can prevail.

Thanks for visiting …

My eyes always brighten at the sight of a beautiful swan. It is grace, beauty and dignity rolled into a feathery white package that says look, but don’t touch.

We could all learn a thing or two about setting healthy and appropriate boundaries from our friend the swan.

Thanks for visiting …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Repurpose

The big, old century cow barn (background), dating back to 1850 or so and the focal point of our 100-acre farm, was repurposed 20 years ago for equestrian use. The ceiling was raised and the barn widened to accommodate a horse breeding operation, and an addition was built, including 12 more stalls, common areas and an indoor arena.

We purchased the property 18 months ago for my emerging Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (FEEL) practice, repurposing this beautiful farm as a place of sanctuary where people can escape their worldly cares and heal their broken hearts in the company of horses.

The journey continues …
