My entire life I have been surrounded by beauty. ‘Esthetic’ became engrained in me and impacted my soul before I could account for its magical power. I remember watching my mother take photographs of flowers with her camera when I was a child. She would never say she was an artist. In fact, I have never heard her so much as whisper that phrase...but she was. Our home was her canvas. Like her, I have found ways to create beauty everywhere I go. I thrive inside of it without intention. My world revolves around it. Why? I have no idea but I have grown to understand its tremendous impact on myself and others. Changing the smile of someone into something more beautiful brings me joy. I have witnessed children and parents cry because a smile became more beautiful, and, in those moments, I am reminded of the power of beauty over and over again. I am humbled by my ability to gift it. Beauty has its own silent language. In the end, beauty may seem frivolous. But, in many ways, it is the essence of magic. Just ask any woman who has been surprised by a bouquet of flowers...how ridiculous...how wonderfully perfect. Find beauty and use it as fuel for your life. ........ #beauty#art#artinstallation#flowerpower#language#keywest#mysticmessenger

After a few years of practice and contemplation, at age 52, I have entered my 1st
24 Hour Ultra Skate at Homestead-Miami Speedway Jan 17-18, 2020.
A #skateboard 🛹 #endurancerace event held at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. A race to see how far you can skate in 24 hours.
My minimum goal is to surpass the 100 mile/71 lap marker point while raising funds and awareness for two very dear organizations.
#Iskatefor the Special Olympics Florida - Monroe County Paddleboard Team of #KeyWest#Florida , Monroe County, funding transportation and lodging needs of our #specialolympics#athletes and #volunteers for competition abroad.
I skate for the SebastianStrong Foundation of Miami Springs, FL. I skate #inmemoryof Nicky Sorbelli 💛 son of Key West business owners and dear friends, Wayne & Jamie Sorbelli, little brother to, Leela. I skate, as well, for all our precious children taken too soon by cancer. This organization raises awareness & funding for less toxic, more targeted #childhoodcancer cures.

This here is Lola 💕 She is a Kemp ridley sea turtle. As you can see, she is missing a flipper. When she was a hatchling, she was found with fishing line wrapped around her flipper. She was rescued, rehabilitated and then release back into the wild. A few days later she was found again with fishing line wrapped around her same flipper. This time so tight when she was rescued, it was amputated and then she was deemed unreleasable. She lives in the Key West Aquarium now and is 16 years old. I was lucky enough to care for her for a short time.
These sea turtles are critically endangered.
I miss this little girl 💚 #turtletuesday

Dry Tortugas National Park just a ferry away from Key West, is the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Over 99 percent of the park is underwater, protecting extensive coral and roughly 200 shipwrecks.
