I have trouble numerous times by train and it was a wonderful experience. You get to see the world go by at a snail’s pace, depending on the kind of train you take. I took the California Zephyr when I was first married, and lived in Sandy, Utah and I stayed with my family different members of my family that is, visiting for several weeks. 

 The ride was really wonderful via Amtrak.

It gives you time to write, think, enjoy looking at the beautiful countryside and you meet whoever sits next to you. I got lucky and on my trip from Salt Lake City to California, the lady I sat next to was a single nurse.

If you aren’t in a hurry, take a train ride and if you’re a writer and photographer like me, bring your computer and camera.  You’ll get the time you wished for to write those chapters in your book or put up some great blog posts!

Please Lord,

Make people kinder to one another and end the horrible, tragic shootings I hear about daily!

Say a prayer, any prayer at all, that kids can be safe I their own schools and people can have reason and compassion and concern for one another. 

Humanity needs to be enlivened and jump started in the world.

Where do you feel most “at home”?

By the sea, by the desert, by the mountains. …..

Tell where your personal sanctuary lies.

Paulette Motzko Welcome’s Cooler Days in The High Desert

Photograph of Paulette Motzko taken by my manager friend who works at Blueberry Hill- when I first moved to Las Vegas. The background image was photographed by me in Vista, CA as I was walking down the street to go to the Vista Library and I loved the shapes of the leaves on the trees there. Vista in San Diego County is totally different than Orange County in that it is more hilly and has more types of lush green foliage.

The images were united last night with a sophisticated blending and blurting app I installed yesterday. 

So, in that photo three different times were involved and would different geographic locations.

Wherever you are today, take time to look at Nature’s Bountiful Colorful Gifts growing around you. 

Get out your camera and immortalize them.

A great photograph says the world without ever uttering a word. 

It is a silent, visual communicator.

Fall in Las Vegas, NV reminds me of just about every day in beautiful southern California with it’s cool Pacific Ocean breezes.

 I would much rather wear a jacket and be cool than sweat or bake like a human cookie in 115 degree heat.

One beautiful fall day I was able to see what Autumn looks like a New England in Vermont. I’ll never forget it because I was going on a business trip with no EX yes she really is a rocket scientist with bowling working on the Delta rocket. Later their marriage, because he traveled so much, I was able to go on a few trips with them and the hotel we stayed at was very strategically pickrf yo be by shopping and restaurants all walking distance-because I dont drive. I’m my mind”s eye, and I do have  very vivid memory, so I will paint the picture of what I saw on that serene afternoon in Vermont:

I was so fascinated with the fact that the towns were so quaint and Charming but nothing like the big city in Southern California that I was used to. All the properties had you Jones and green like as if you painted them or drew them with the kids Crayola crayon set in green. It it just rained and you could see a white Chapel, just like out of Currier and Ives that was so pristine and quaint and Charming maybe want to go inside look around. Hit my ex been a Christian guy and said agnostic we probably would have done just that. But the memories I have of Vermont in the autumn are so wonderful.

I wasn’t a published writer then and not one of my blogs had been created yet. This was 1990.  I want to go back either to Vermont in the Autumn in the future when the leaves are Ablaze with the colors of red, rest, dark green and the foliage comes in about every size and shape you can imagine.

When you grew up in the big city with nothing but towering palm trees that rise to the sky and beautiful blue expanses beaches and ocean- up and down the Pacific coast…. places like Vermont are refreshing, not so much even for the scenic countryside, but for the great and totally genuine people I met while passing through.

 People in small towns have more time and more patient and it’s like going back in time to a simpler, gentler time when people stayed off smartphones- because they didn’t exist and  made eye contact more and people were the most important thing.

There’s so many wonderful places but I want to go in the United States but I’ve seen just mere vignettes or samplers of what I know is to come.

The Three Dimensional Flower by Paulette Motzko

Just playing around with various photo effects. ….

Have a blessed night where ever you are.

What do you think a good name for this photo would be?

Inside the cubes is a bright pink hibiscus I photographed in Huntington Beach,  CA before I moved to Nevada.

I called the Wells Fargo ethics line and got fired

If you bank with Wells Fargo, I would seriously consider moving your money elsewhere. 

Integrity and ethics are not top priorities with them. I knew that when I banked with them in California many years ago.
