Play Ball!

Since my son was four years old he’s played baseball in the local youth league every spring. He’s now 13 and we finally have our first baseball practice of the season under our belts! I look forward to the kids’ sports every spring and fall – softball and baseball are at the top of my favorites list (soccer I merely tolerate). Since I have a better camera now, I took over 400 pictures of his team’s first practice. Here are just a select few of my favorites.

So handsome! (Even in mom's hat since he left his in the church bathroom)

This is my new cover photo on fb – one of the balls landed close to me and I made a quick out-of-focus snap. I love it!

I purchased a polarizing lens because I wanted crisper shots of my surroundings…can you see a difference with the lens vs without the lens?
And can you tell me why the picture looks better on my camera screen than it does after I upload it to the computer?

These were taken during the storm the other night – without the polarizing lens.

You know you are a rockhound if... you pull over and wait on the side of the road when you see a sign that says "Falling rock".

One Mile Smile

Mind of Chaos

How easy it would be, to sit here, telling the world that my struggles were all due to outside sources, that my 2am, scattered-sleep nights were caused by a destructive family life, or the villainous boys I met in high school. How easy it would be to place the blame on undeserved circumstances. I am a strong believer in the “we make our own choices” concept of life, and that life does not discriminate in placing innocent people, in hard paths of being. For me, the life-defining choice was to allow myself to fall victim to my own mind, and for my inside, tyrannical anxiety, to control my outside actions. That moment, whenever it might have been, has visited me in nightmare-like ways, all throughout my young adulthood.
