On a day of great reflection, I was sorting through some photos and began picking out ones that had special meaning in my life. There's the cabin I grew up in as a little girl and the cabin I'm currently building by myself right now. My son and daughter and granddaughter are pictured, and my mother; my hero, mentor and best friend. Included is a photo with the Laos school teachers where I delivered school supplies to their tiny village. There's my elephant, Kaew, in Thailand, my childhood dog, my Vietnam motorcycle, my first photo book with the story of discovering honey bees and me welding for a series of artworks that hung in an art gallery. I'm seen with a Nepali orphan when I was in Asia the time I trekked to the base camp of Mt. Everest as a fundraiser for the children without homes in Kathmandu. There's one of me rock climbing in Thailand and one reading, and another with a shovel covering a grave at a mountain cemetery for a friend who died of cancer. My love of animals and tiny life is hopefully apparent. All this surrounded by words with much meaning for me. This is one way I doodle. This is for those who know me best and it's but a tiny spec in my life of things I hold dear. I could do a hundred more with photos of family and friends and many shared memories.
