the bluest sky, sunshine & temperatures in the teens - it's beginning to feel a little fallish

Challenges come so we can grow and be prepared for things we are not equipped to handle now. When we face our challenges with faith, prepared to learn, willing to make changes, and if necessary to let go, we are demanding our power be turned on.

I will face the challenges in my life with faith & courage,
prepared to learn, willing to make changes & if necessary ... to let go.

Rockin' on !


  1. Oh yeah - I gotta get a real camera. I was trying to take pics of the fall foliage on a recent trip to the north, and oh wow my "camera" just did not cut it. LOL Your photos make me remember...

  2. so exciting you're hunting for a new home ... & I'm in the market for a new camera as well - after xmas & before the new year (taxes) ... I can't wait - my lovely black beast of a camera is 10 year sold. sigh ... it has served me well xoxo S

  3. Anytime I make it over here, I'm continually astounded at the quality and depth of your photos, let alone the creativity of your art.

    Susan, you are such an inspiration and in fact I remember reading your thoughtful heart-string pulling muse long before I started to blog myself, so immerse din your unique world. TY.

    With that then, wanted to tell you that I'm closing Hot Toast and Jam but thought you might enjoy its last post.

    I will still be visiting just not as much (as if I have been that frequent anyway!) as one might expect when hosting a personal blog, verses an art one.

    Let me just say then, thank you for your support and inspiration along the way and here's wishing you the best until we chat again.

  4. "Challenges come so we can grow and be prepared for things we are not equipped to handle now."

    What a PROFOUND statement, Susan. I know I've learned alot over the last year or so. Some things I wish I could change. Others, not so. But I feel I can "see" life better now. Is it odd that I'm finding a new creative side since the passing of my father? Have you experienced this throughout your life/career? (NOT that I'm anywhere close to your artwork and photography) :)

    Wishing you well.
