Utah, USA

A Pictorial...

Most of you who know me, know of the trials and tribulations I've been going through for the past three years.
The shocking separation of my 35 year marriage, coming very closely on the heels of my Mama's death in 05, my 14 year old baby dogs death, and no home to call my own.

All while being far, far away from my daughters and my beautiful grandsons.
...and No job for FIVE years.

On my own. For the first time ever, in my entire life.
I've always had a husband, [I met him when I was 19!] and I have always been surrounded by friends and family. I've always had a job. Not any traditional "career" type job, but I've always worked.
I was a personal trainer for more than 21 years, then a studio photographer, then a Freelance Location photographer. But first I was a daughter, a Mom... and a wife...

I was beginning to be more than just a 'little discouraged' with my "circumstances".
But God is good.
His ways are NOT my ways.
His understanding is NOT my understanding.
His timing is NOT my timing.

Yet He is always ON TIME. And He is always right.

I have a job!
For the past three years I've diligently been job hunting. From South Carolina to San Diego to Bakersfield. "LORD, you know I did NOT want to live in Bakersfield."

But Bakersfield is where He has brought me.
Sooooooooooo...
Bloom where you're planted, right?

So here I am. And, Praise the LORD! I have a job.
Working for good Christian people.
I get to drive around all day in an airconditioned truck and listen to the radio. Or CD's, sometimes even sirius radio ;)

Sorry, I got a little off topic for a minute there...
Basking in my blessings.

My first out of state gig...Utah, USA
Beautiful country. Big sky with big clouds, and even a big rain...

I made this trip with Floramay Holliday, John Hiatt, Bonnie Raite, some Travelin Wilbury's, Fleetwood Mac, some Mercy Me and Third Day, Eagles, Stray Cats, and Stevie Ray Vaughn;
just to name a few.

I just wanted to share some of my photos from Utah with you here.

So, no more words!

well, just a few more...
          ...the first three photos are from Mojave, California. Leaving the sunset behind me.
