Throughout this life we all experience things that we wish we could share with loved ones and special friends and sometimes simply anyone who is interested or willing to spare a moment to actually listen. Now these experiences are, for the most part, good; but not always. This collection is made up of "pieces" that share a few of my experiences. While I obviously cannot provide you with such things as taste and smell, I can share photographs. These pictures are natural and pure art to me and will hopefully allow you to view some things through my eyes... a little piece of my world. Enjoy.

I was diagnosed with PD in my late 20s. While I would never wish this humiliating disease on anyone, it has allowed me to step back and take a look at what is really important in life. I now take the time to talk to people, to find beauty in things that would otherwise be overlooked and lost in the busy shuffle of today's way of life. I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason and my situation is no exception. I cannot sit back and do nothing. I have the disease, it does NOT have me! Hopefully I can make a difference, be it large or as simple as opening someone else's eyes with my pictures. Again, I hope you enjoy them.
