I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.

Noticing the fog as it rolled in after an unusually warm January day, I had my husband drive by this farm so I could capture it before it disappeared as the fog quickly blanketed the field.. He pulled over and waited as I snapped a few shots while trying to avoid getting muddy from the potholes filled with melted snow and mud.
