One of my favorite sculptures in the Louvre, Cupid and Psyche by Antonio Canova, commissioned in 1787.

I never knew how many kinds of crêpes you could have until I lived in France for a summer. I could have eaten crêpes at every meal and never eaten the same kind twice. What sweet and savory memories.

Bon Appétit

The weather has turned cold in the Pacific Northwest and I am already dreaming about summer sunshine, warm beaches, and... Who am I kidding? I am dreaming of my next vacation!

The joy of living in the Pacific Northwest.

Please remember to give wildlife a respectful and safe distance, especially babies. Mother's often leave their young for extended periods in search of food. Do not approach them. If in doubt, call your local fish and wildlife office. This photo was taken with a 300mm lens.

Only 20% of New York City Subway Stations are "somewhat" accessible.

How accessible is your city?

When you type in "Connecticut  Lighthouse" into Google Maps you never know where you might end up. With a few hours to spare for exploring I found myself in front of two incredibly sweet couples houses and in a beautiful little coastal town in search of Lighthouses. Explore, revel in getting lost, you might just find something wonderful you weren't even looking for.

Fall is my favorite season! I love taking a walk along the water at my local park. Some days you can see otters or seals playing in the bay close to shore. A little further out, whales and dolphins play hide and seek with the boats going by.

I may not "look disabled" because I often don't use a mobility device, but I still have a mobility impairment that I require accommodations for. 
What accessible travel accommodations do you need for your visible or invisible disability?

#invisibledisabilitiesweek #invisibledisabilities #invisibledisability #disability #accessibletravel #accommodations #travel
For #invisibledisabilitiesweek I have stepped out from behind the camera to help raise awareness for the millions of people who live with invisible disabilities, including myself. 
There are times when I am glad that people don't automatically know that I have a disability because I don't want my disability to be my identity. It is not who I am, but it is part of me. At other times I wish it were more obvious so I would not be overlooked or have to explain in grave, invasive detail, why I may need accommodations. I am often told, #butyoulookfine. Not all disabilities are visible, in fact - most aren't. Even for those that have visible disabilities, many also have invisible disabilities as well.

For all of those who have invisible disabilities: #autism, #cancer, #heartdisease, #diabetes, #crohnsdisease, #epilepsy, #mentalhealthdisorders, #lymedisease, #foodallergies, #arthritis, #multiplesclerosis, #sjagrenssyndrome, #scleroderma, #lupus, #allergies, #fibromyalgia, #chronicpain, #chronicfatigue, #tbi, and all of the many other #invisibledisabilities... I see you!

Working from home is not a luxury for people with disabilities, sometimes it is necessary to accommodate their needs. Today I have worked from multiple locations around my house trying to manage pain: both sitting and standing at my adjustable desk, sitting on my living room couch, laying in bed, and even from my bathtub (twice). #invisibledisabilitiesweek #invisibledisabilities #disabilityawareness  #disabilitypride  #accommodations #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #arthritis #neuropathy  #neverjudge #neverassume #butyoulookfine #writer #travelwriter #photographer #gradstudent

I LIVE with an invisible disability. 
I am a mom. I am a student. I am a writer. I am a photographer. I am a friend. I am a sister. I am your neighbor. I am the stranger you pass by everyday. I am an explorer. I am more than a disability, I am a person.
