LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL - Belinda Spillman - Thanks for Stopping By!

Hello ActiveRain and all my good friends!

The days have been rolling by and with each day there has been an intention to post and to come back and visit my friends. I miss you all and just want to take a moment to express how beautiful you all are. I do check in on you on a regular basis and I may not be quite up to speed on all that you are doing but I do have you ever present in my awareness.

I am a work in progress and I believe that you will be proud of me and the changes that are happening in my life. I have found some sweet haven and place of peace and it is very sweet. There are only good things in my life and I turn away from those things that are problem-based or stressful. I have come to know that we truly do create our future each and every day with our thoughts and actions.

I want to thank all my dear friends who stop by to check in on me. You will never know how sweet that is for me. Belinda Spillman is such a sweet heart and kindrid spirit, as is Debb Janes and many others. I do miss you all but you live in my heart and so we are never really parted.

I am sharing the work that sustains me here today. It is a celebration of how sweet all things are for me. We are currently doing a redesign of www.TheShastaLifestyle.com with Mike Mueller. It will become our flag ship website and I will take down our 7 year old Advanced Access website. Ever since Homes.com bought them....the leads just stopped. We are excited about the project as it will brand for the North State and showcase our photography of the beautiful areas that are available to us here. Mike is also creating a custom Fan Page App for all our Fan Pages that showcases our photography.

I now have a site to sell my photography on. Visit it here. I created a tumblr blog site for my photo art. You can visit it here and I am having fun with Pinterest. David and I have taken down our Queen Anne formal dining room set and created a studio in our dining room. David has a large format camera (Horseman) set up and has ingeniously adapted his SLR Canon to it. Charted for unknow territories....we are! I will include his latest piece if he gives permission.

As you can tell we just attended the Dunsmuir Railroad Days. It is an event each June and a must do in the North State. We have several events coming up. The Lavendar Farm in Mount Shasta in July and another trip planned to the Coast in August. We are planning a visit to Lassen in September. The events are all part of our Series work for Perfect Days in Perfect Places. We are having fun!

If you are looking to relocate to the North State, give us a call and we will send you a digital relocation package of information and data on the North State, We like to include some of our photography along with the package so that you can see the beautiful place we live and work in.

We call it "Living The Shasta Lifestyle"!

I have to admit that I really have missed everyone. The HUD work has kept us busy. We are coing up for air as things have slowed down and I can hope to put attention on other matters. I look forward to getting back in the RAIN. It is such a delight to have such good friends interact and visit. I am looking forward to doing the same and visiting you all. Such a delight. Thank you.

Belinda, how sweet of you to stop by. This was the week that I had an intention to get back in the swing of things and it was slipping away. Between the REO work and many doctor appointments and tests, we made a choice to try hard to have personal time for ourselves. We unpacked the rest of the boxes from our move last May. We got rid of things and bought the small things that we needed to make this house ours. Our courtyard is a joy now and we enjoy sitting out there with the birds and our Great Trees (2 huge Sequoia Redwood trees, a very large Black Oak and a huge Incense Cedar. The Hummies visit regularly although are still nervous with us around. We had David's Photographer Group over for a small "get together" and that was so fun. Life is short and if you keep putting things off, we will miss golden opportunities for those things in life that make the rhythm of balance an joy occur. So glad you stopped by sweet girl. Made my day! Thank you.

Hello John, always a pleasure to see and hear from you and Debbie. I so enjoy taking a peak and seeing what the two sweetest people on earth are doing. I see that business is good and that you are very busy. We all like that and so I know you are doing so with joy and happiness. Give Debbie my best. I have not been doing as much FB as usual and need to get back to the FP work and sharing photos. Sending you both tons of love and (((HUGS)))! Have a great weekend!

Charlie, thanks so much for stopping by to say "hello". That means a lot from a good friend. We have been around a long time, have we not? Thanks for visiting the art site. It will hopefully really be a good opportunity for David to market his work. I am more of a "Hallmark" kind of girl but have much fun doing the work. I know how many people love trains and some of the other things I photography so why not. I am still trying to figure things out.....Print being a huge departure from digital. Hope you are well and enjoying life. I will visit soon, my friend!

Hello Myrl, I thought that you would enjoy the trains. I have a funny story to share. My health is still not the best and to go to Railroad Days with the crowds of people just would not be an option for me and so we went up on the Friday before the opening event on Friday evening. Southern Pacific employees and volunteers were very busy getting ready for the event. We have a good friend that was working that day. The Union Pacific yard is restricted and two signs ssy so at the entrance. We had on previous trips to Dunsmuir entered the yard and taken photos of the trains still there after Railroad Days. We did so again. I told David to just know that we would be invisible. We parked at the far end and I got out and walked the entire line taking my photos. David was busy talking with one of the volunteers. I must have photographed for almost an hour. I was at the limit of my physical ability and finally knew that I needed to find some place to sit down and that I had accomplished my goal. Upon that thought a man began to walk towards me. He asked me what I was doing and I told him photographing the trains. He said very nicely that I was not allowed in the area and that I must leave. I told him that I had been photographing the trains for an hour or so and had he not seen me. He said no that he had not seen me and that he had been working and watching for people like me. I guess I must have been invisible.

Thank you for the feature. We are enjoying the photography and David will be getting into some serious new things. It will be fun. Hope you are well and happy, my dear friend.

Hello William, so nice to have you stop by. Always a treat! David has bought me (sweet surprise) a set of lens for the macro work I desire to do. He has the Horseman to play with and now he has bought me these new macro lens. They are harder to work with in some respects but here is my first effort. We had our Photographer friends over the other night and in my conversations it sounds like we all go through similar phases of our work and development. We are so blessed to be around such gifted people. Hope you are well and happy, my friend. Looking forward to stopping by to enjoy your work. That is always such a inspiration for me. Happy weekend. Enjoy!

Please share the results of your photograph sales.  Many have suggested that I try to sell some of my photographs but I have not taken those steps.

Enjoy life to the fullest this summer.
