THROUGH MY LENS: poppies, my sweet

thumb_IMG_2696_1024Every summer I’m happy to see the great orange flowers of my garden poppies open. They love the sun, the hotter and drier the better for them, it seems. With the soft blue-purple irises starting to fade behind them into the background, the bright blooms come alive even more. Their lives are short but glorious, and I always have a feeling I should try to learn to live more by their example.

About Jacqlyn Thorne

I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
