I’m a mom/retired teacher/artist/poet and an aspiring photographer. I love those surprising moments in everyday life that twinkle and call us to wonder ‘what if…’

I live in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. Our winters can be very harsh and seem to last forever. Nature offers many opportunities for photographic splendor.


Since starting this blog in April 2015, I’ve surprised myself. Β I never thought that I’d develop a love for haiku/tanka writing. I combine these poetic forms with an image because I feel it adds more impact to the total meaning.

My photography is still evolving and is a necessary companion to my emerging words.

      Actually, I’m Ukrainian. I’m first generation Canadian and my parents’ were educated under the Russian rule so they spoke both languages which are very similar. Thank-you for the comment, Marta. πŸ™‚
