Detour to Happiness

Sometimes the road taken is not all it’s cracked up to be…

…but an unexpected detour will come if one opens one’s eyes to the signs.

“Not all storms come to disrupt your life. Some come to clear the path.”

(Healthy Place.com)

Tesla- From Candlelight to Wi-Fi

Anomaly extraordinaire

From another time

Visionary being


Cloud watcher

Inspired by a sunset

Eidetic memory

Highly keen senses

Understood music of numbers

Listened to colors

Felt rhythm of sentient Earth

Opened spiritual eye to cosmic intelligence

Affinity with vedantic philosophy

Explored new doorways

Prolific inventor

Befriended lightning

Quantum leaps to harness universal energy

In the end

Penniless and alone

Only pigeons for company

Before Green Pastures


Coloring my world

Wisdom had to be earned

Laws of the universe

Took hold

Painting stories of drought and storms

Always one finger above water

I learned the hard way

To follow my inner voice

Then suddenly the sky cleared

Just for that moment

The wind’s direction changed

The greens shone through

In waking hours

Now detours are embraced

With gratitude of heart

“Embrace the detours.” (Kevin Charbonneau)

Feral chickens seemed to be everywhere in Kauai, Hawaii. On my trip a few years ago, I was fascinated by their presence.

My first encounter with a sunbathing seal. I had to take a closer look with the camera’s eye.

“Man is not the only animal that wants to live in freedom and peace.”

Uncertain Quiet

Looking out

Into the quiet

Uncertainty resides

Present time

Throws a curve

Reinvents new challenges


Is the only way

Looking for an angel
