“I’m a typical middle child. I’m the mediator. The one that makes everything OK, puts their own needs aside to make sure everybody’s happy. It’s hard to change your nature, even with years and years of therapy.”  Jennifer Jason Leigh

Oh My Gosh!  I read the above quote and thought to myself . . . that is me!  Totally me!  I am the middle child of seven – two older brothers, one older sister, and three younger sisters.  As a child, I mainly just stayed invisible because that was the safest place to be.  As I grew older, I found myself being a mediator of sorts . . . the person who always tried to make things ok for everyone.  As a result, I grew up a lot of insecurities and no sense of self what so ever.  I have worked very hard over the last decade or so to become more confident in who I am, and discovering what it is that makes me tick.  I never knew, so how could anyone around me know??  

At 60 years of age, I am very much a work in progress but now I know that I have choice, that I have power, that I have value.  I hope I can pass this on to my Grandkids through my actions and the way I live my life with accountability and truth.  If even a little bit rubs off . . . I have lived my life with purpose.    

In today’s photo, I am playing mediator yet again . . . between the  New Jersey Honey Bears and my half empty bottle of Agave Nectar.  Agave Nectar is not too pleased with the Honey Bear invasion!



“Pooh, promise you won’t forget about me, ever. Not even when I’m a hundred.” Pooh though for a little. “How old shall I be then?” “Ninety-nine.” Pooh nodded. “I promise,” he said. – Christopher Robin & Pooh Bear

I have to say that Honey Bear is really enjoying his new home here north of the border!  Today, he and Canada Moose have become fast friends . . . they’re having some quiet time together on the front porch.  Who knew a little honey bear from New Jersey could become so right at home here in beautiful British Columbia?  We’re so pleased to add him to our family . . .

Honey Bear is making new friends here north of the border . . . found this little 100% Canadian Honey Bear on the shelves at Save-On-Foods today.  I really couldn’t leave them alone for long though, and finally had to separate them as things were just getting a little too sticky  . . . 



“Honey, I am the chief of my train. If critics want to hop on board, fantastic. There’s plenty of room. The KP train is fun.”  Katy Perry

I’m not a huge fan of Katy Perry, but I do like this quote of hers. I think it’s a great attitude, one that we all could adopt.  I was just talking this week with my sister about one of my biggest challenges in my quest to become a bonafide “photographer”.  That challenge is the voice of critics . . . what they say and don’t say about my work.  I’m on a mission here, and I’ve come a long way in a short time.  I picked up my first camera when I was 16 years old in high school, and was smitten from that point.  Life got in the way though, so now I am pursuing my passion.  Photography.  Two years ago I did not understand the relationship of aperture, ISO, and shutterspeed.  I knew light was important, but I didn’t understand the how and why.  I still have so much to learn . . . and I am so enjoying the journey.  So there ya go . . . I’m going to adopt Katy Perry’s attitude and accept all critics with an open heart.  It’s all just part of the process after all.  

Today’s shot is Honey Bear’s first breakfast in Canada.  Poached eggs and toast with honey.  Very yummy honey!  Not sure exactly what type of honey it is . . . but it’s very light and flavorful!



“If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.” John D. Rockefeller

One of my fellow 365’ers very generously mailed each one of us some of the honey he makes on his farm.  I had him mail it to my Son’s address just south of Portland, Oregon.  I had to document the momentous occasion of Honey Bear entering Canada. It was a sweet experience for all of us!
