Remember all the dumb things you did as a kid? You survived! Above is an image of me when I was 5 years old, trying to be Bugs Bunny. I can remember the dumb things I did and I am still here to tell you about it. As we become mature adults and have children of our own, we remind them not to do the dumb things we did. However, in the end, they find their own dumb things to do in spite of our experienced counsel. Life shows us just how tough we are as we grow into adults. We learn from our mistakes and it is only when we learn those lessons from our own experience, do we learn the lesson. It should be a comfort that we and ultimately our children can say: "I SURVIVED MY CHILDHOOD!"

Fancy Food http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/7/fancy-food Plate of Food (1 of 1)Plate of Food (1 of 1)

We love to eat! We need to eat to survive. We also love Fancy Food. We will pay a higher price for good food, at a good restaurant that serves fancy food. However, have you really thought about what makes food fancy? Is it the Food? Chicken and Steak can be both fancy and simple. Is it the plating of the food? Fancy food plating is an art form. Or is it the way the food is cooked? Fancy food is usually spiced and cooked certain ways. What makes Fancy Food so Fancy is all the above. It appeals to our senses of sight, smell, and taste. It is the awakening of those senses that makes Fancy Food so appealing to us. That simple aspect can go a long way in many other situations in life. We love "FANCY FOOD!"

Happy 4th of July http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/7/happy-4th-of-july Flag (1 of 1)Flag (1 of 1)

Today in the United States we celebrate the birth of our country on the 4th of July. Every country has a day of its birth when it becomes its own nation. Our country is part of our Identity. We identify ourselves by the country we come from with our language, our food, and our culture. There in no reason why a person should not celebrate where they come from nor should we frown on those of other nations. Here in the United State the majority of our population originated from other countries and only now identify themselves as Americans. However, if one checks one's DNA, one will find a mixture of different nations and cultures. Deep down inside we really are not that different from each other. "HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

The Thin Line Of Winning Or Losing http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/6/the-thin-line-of-winning-or-losing Fenway Sign (1 of 1)Fenway Sign (1 of 1)

Wow! What a game it was in Fenway Park! The Red Sox's were losing to the White Sox's and then the game was tied, then the Red Sox's won it in the 10th inning. Sports always can show us the thin line of winning or losing in life. Your down, then you come back and win or your winning and somehow you lose. We have all experienced the ups and downs of winning or losing. It could be anything life, a job we thought we had, a relationship we thought was a sure thing, or just the experience of day to day living. We win, we lose and so life goes on. It seems just when things are going our winning way, all of sudden we hit that unexpected losing skid. We see it in sports, we see it in life, "THE THIN LINE OF WINNING OR LOSING!"

The Simple Things We Take For Granted http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/6/the-simple-things-we-take-for-granted Sunset (1 of 1)Sunset (1 of 1)

As our day ends everyday, how often do we take the simple everyday things in our life for granted? The truth is we do not realize it until it is gone. It could be anything: the air conditioner on a summer day, the presence of the people in our life, the hot water for a shower, the electricity in our house, or just the simple sunset that brings our day to a close. We go thru the days and take those things for granted until one day we do not have them and realize how much we miss that simple thing. So today pause a moment with those simple things in your life and be mindful of their presence, for it is so easy to forget the "THE SIMPLE THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED!"

Different Trees: Same Forest http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/6/different-trees-same-forest Forest (1 of 1)Forest (1 of 1)

Above is a path thru a forest is Seattle. As you walk along the path you will see Different Trees but the Same Forest. So often we focus on the differences and fail to realize the bigger picture of the world we live in. It is the trees that are different and make the walk thru forest interesting and unique. However, in the end we say, we took a walk in the forest, not we took a walk thru different trees. As our world grows so divided, the failure to see that we are different trees but living in the same forest may be our undoing. We need the uniqueness, the differences to make our journey interesting, but we need to realize we make up the same forest. It is our coexistence that guarantees our survival on earth. We are different trees, but we must remain the same forest. This is the key: "DIFFERENT TREES: SAME FOREST."

Signs Of Summer http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/6/signs-of-summer Boating in The Sunrise (1 of 1)Boating in The Sunrise (1 of 1)

Summer is almost officially here and we can see signs of Summer. The day has gotten longer, the temperature has risen, and we can see outside activities everywhere we go. The Seasons do not suddenly begin or end, but Seasons come gradually as one ends and another begins. Our lives move the same way, we gradually pass from one phase to another. We move from childhood to adulthood in gradual phases. Things happen to prepare us for the next phase. It is when we try to move too quickly that problems arise. Summer reminds us to take life slowly. Slowly move from phase to phase and you will discover the gradual joys of each phase. Look for the "SIGNS OF SUMMER!"

Yesterday was Nature Photography Day, but guess what? You can still celebrate the day by taking photos of Nature. Nature is good for our body, mind, and soul. We get out in the fresh air, we exercise, and we see the natural world around us. So grab any camera you have, phone camera, point & shoot camera, or a DSLR camera and get out of the house, off the noisy roads, and the overcrowded cities into the fresh air of our natural world with the animals who share our world. It's "NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY DAY."

LIVE!!! Get out and Live! As we enter into the Summer, get out and have some fun, somewhere. The weather is good everywhere and the days are longer. We spend too much time working and distracted by things that are in the long run mean very little. Life is too short and before you know it our time runs out here on earth. There are things to see, do, enjoy, and experience. Life is calling you to spend time with the ones you love. So get out and "LIVE!!! HAVE FUN IN THE SUN!"

Above is an image of a Park in California. It is Summertime. Now is a good time to take "a walk in the park." It will refresh you, give you a little exercise, help you to enjoy the outdoors, and maybe even meet interesting people. All too often we cope ourselves up with inactivity, not wanting to do anything. However, just getting outside can relieve stress, cure our blues, and get us healthy. So sometime this week, get out and take "A WALK IN THE PARK!"

Birth - Death - Rebirth? http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/6/birth---death---rebirth Tomb Stones (1 of 1)Tomb Stones (1 of 1)

One thing we can all agree on is we are all born. Another thing we agree on is one day we are all going to die. However, the one thing we don't all agree on is what happens after death. the rebirth. There are those who believe nothing happens and then there are a slew of different theories and names for the rebirth into the afterlife. Some call it the Resurrection, others call it Reincarnation, others call it a Rebirth. There are all sorts of names we use to describe the afterlife of rebirth. No one really knows what happens and there has been those who experience the "near death experience" reporting there is something there after we die, thus negating those who claim nothing happens. However, in the end we do not really know for sure what is the rebirth experience. What we do know is "BIRTH - DEATH - REBIRTH?????"

Save Our Birds http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/5/save-our-birds Baby Stork (1 of 1)Baby Stork (1 of 1)

The Birds of America need your help. The Federal Government is slowly disbanding the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. This law which is 100 years old protects birds from being captured or killed and motivates industries to uphold bird safe practices by holding them responsible if their activities turn lethal. The Federal Government will no longer enforce the law for unintentional bird deaths. What this means if there are oil spills  and other industrial mishaps the companies will no longer be held responsible. We must protect our wildlife and environment from our irresponsibility! Support the efforts to "SAVE OUR BIRDS!"

Our Driving Madness http://www.tmesickphotography.com/blog/2018/5/our-driving-madness

Have you noticed that when we get behind a wheel of a car, we go mad! Just the other day on the interstate, a car was speeding to get on a crowded highway and did not slow down, expecting the other cars just to let him merge into traffic without slowing down. He became so angry at the other drivers cursing and swearing with hand signals and if there was  an accident, it would have been his fault. Whatever it is about driving, when perfectly normal people get behind the wheel of a car they change. Driving makes us think only of ourselves and not others, rules are thrown out the window, and people just do some of the dumbest things. Let us remember, we are not the only ones on the road, we are not the only people who have to go somewhere, we are the one person that can stop 'OUR DRIVING MADNESS!

Let's face it, we all need our own space in Life, that "My Corner of The Woods." It may not be much, but it is our space. We are bombarded with "we need this" or "we need that", but in reality are those things going to make us happy. What does make us happy in Life are those  "little corners in the woods." We all need space that we can call our own, it may not be big, it may not be fancy, or it may not make any magazine covers, but it is our space, it is "MY CORNER IN THE WOODS!"

The Path to the Future is never clear and yet we will go to great extremes to make it clear. In the Past people use to go to fortune tellers, seers, shamans, prophets and oracles. Some of these practices still exist, but now we go to experts in the field of health and money to predict our futures. It seems we are always searching for that person who can guide us in our future path. However, nobody from the past or the current can tell or predict our future, for Life is just too unpredictable. Our Future will always be a hazy path built upon our past and our present. The best predictor of the future is to learn as much as we can, make sound decisions based on that knowledge and make adjustments when we go off the path, for "THE PATH TO THE FUTURE IS NEVER CLEAR!"

So, today dream your dreams, think about what you would want to do in life and no matter how small, make a start. You may not get there, but unless you start somewhere you will never know. For now: IT'S A START!"

At the Day's End is a special time for us. We are done with the day's activity and we begin to whine down to relax. The Sun is setting and life begins to slow down from the fast pace it had during the day. We can look back on the day and see what we accomplished or did not accomplish. Day's End allows us to reflect on the path ahead in the coming days. Try and find a special place  where you feel relaxed and can collect your thoughts before you retire for the night at"THE DAY'S END!"

Above is an image of two Great Blue Heron Chicks. They look similar but they are also dissimilar. We find ourselves often in very similar situations but there are always dissimilarities. We may drive to work the same way everyday and get bored by how similar the drive is but there are dissimilarities. We may catch a light, see different cars everyday, or it may rain one day. Perhaps you sit in your backyard looking at the same scene everyday and all seems similar. However, the same bird may sing its song from a different tree or a flower may bloom that day. There are dissimilar things happening in the similar old scenario. So don't get bored by the same old, same old similar things in life, but look for "THE DISSIMILAR IN THE SIMILAR!"

It is said, "We are the clothes we wear", however, nowadays shoes have become such a form of self expression. Shoes more so than clothing say who we are as we express ourselves. Sandals are worn by a layback crowd, high heels say high fashion and dress, sneakers say more of an athletic person, and army boots are a another whole world. Think for a minute about the shoes you own and what they say about you. You can learn a lot about a person from "THE SHOES YOU WEAR!"
