Hearing Spring


I can hear winter’s
Icy grip loosen. Morning
Birdsong greets the dawn.

Letting the Eyes Speak

imageHello Wiseacrewaysians (That’s easy for me to write). Many thanks for your follows and kind comments over the past year. It’s been a blast.

You may have noticed that my posts have dwindled lately, becoming not only shorter but farther between. I don’t plan to desert you, but the focus of this blog is changing a bit. The result will be a little less bloviating from me and a little more eye candy from my camera.

If you’ve looked at the Water Works Park Project link on this site, you’ll know that I’ve been taking pictures of one of my favorite parks and posting a photo of it every day in my Water Works Park Project blog. That project continues on, and as of the date of this post, I’ve posted nearly 200 photos of the park!

I’ve had several people ask if I have prints of my work available, and I’m happy to say that now I do. Many of them may be purchased through my website, wwww.wiseyephoto.com. See the Wiseye Photo page in this blog for more information.

I hope you all will continue to visit. I’d love to know when you like something and any comments you may have. Thanks for the love. Keep passing it around.

whistle on the wind.

Tiny feet shuffle
Feathers ruffle, wings flap, bunched
black, against the cold.

Guerrilla Aging: Nourishment Comes in Many Forms


This guest post from one of my favorite bloggers gets at the heart of many things wonderful about older women, friendship, laughter and style.

Originally posted on Life in the Boomer Lane:


I’ve just returned from five days in Florida, visiting two dear friends, Joyce and Jean.  These women were also my co-authors for the two books we wrote about life after 50. For that reason, our journey of friendship has been life-altering. I brought with me another friend, Judy, who came with me to visit several years ago, not long after her husband died. The first trip was a revelation for her, in that she could experience joy again.

The four of us did what we do best: We laughed. I’m not sure if we are actually as clever as we believe ourselves to be.  But it doesn’t really matter. We laughed through our days, until we exhausted ourselves.  We probably laughed all night in our sleep.

I brought a video with me, Advanced Style. It was made by Ari Seth Cohen, a brilliant photographer who started by photographing…
