Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Lily Pads, Old Barns & Blue Skies~

Like all towns, we have little towns along some beautiful lanes that seem to have their own charm and character. One that I travel often is Highway 42, which years ago was the main road from Louisville, Kentucky to Cincinnati, Ohio, until the early 1970 when I-71 came to be. I-71 once was the way to go, but there have been so many cars accidents, trucks overturned, people killed, and, or injured and to tell the truth, I would rather take the back roads, which may take a little longer, but yet, I get to also view some lovely scenery along the way and I still always get to my destination on time~
