A “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it.


I was born on the 13th and consider it my lucky number. I also just quite like it. It’s odd, a bit out of favor, perhaps misunderstood. A misfit of sorts…just my type.

Serendipity 13 is place where magic is real if you only believe, colors have personalities and living life artfully is it’s best reward.

A photo blog once called Pictures in Living Color has gone rogue and turned itself into the playground of my wildly creative inner child. Here there are no rules and expect the unexpected.

Life is ever flowing, ever-changing.  It is always in motion.  Each moment is unique unto itself and can never be relived or duplicated.
I will attempt to record some of these moments in images, accompanied by words and ideas all with my own unique spin.

A pictorial of life, the universe and everything.

As seen through the eye of an artist with the soul of a poet.

Written by a writer with a love for words.

Who is inspired by our beautiful planet.

“Love the Earth and the sun and the animals, despise riches,…devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgencetoward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown,…re-examine all you have been told at school or church or any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your flesh shall become a great poem.”

**Walt Whitman**

  6. I like the 13th, it’s its very own person (number), not many other numbers can say that. The 13th has a personality to it and very few other numbers can say that also, a bit whimsical but still true if one were to personalize a number. I enjoyed your About page, it really is about who/how you are, which is delightful! Penny

  7. I nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. If you have time…
    Just want to take this opportunity to thank you for sharing your beautiful photos and thoughts!

  8. Greetings from Australia. I came to your blog through the Weekly Photo Challenge. I love your photos, the colours are so vivid and alive.
    You mentioned living in one of the most beautiful places on Earth — where is that?

    • Hello Ausurfer! Thanks for the kind words. 🙂

      I am on the other side of the world in The Pacific Northwest of The U.S. I happen to like tall pine tree forests so I am truly at home here. I have always wanted to visit Australia which is beautiful in its own right.

      • Ahhh…beautiful area of the world indeed. I lived in your country for almost 10 years and my last road trip was from Portland to Vancouver. I also made a visit to Seattle at Xmas just gone. I also love the pine trees.
