I'm a nationally published lifestyles journalist and photographer. I focus on the magic of ordinary moments -- the moments we overlook as we rush through our busy days. I collect quotes that inspire me, and pair them here daily with my photos. As a nod to my years of writing Sunday newspaper columns, I also post essays and reviews on weekends. You're welcome to share my posts with friends. Social media sharing buttons are included in the beige area under each post. ~Cindy La Ferle
Lately, on our daily walks with Coco at the Clawson City Park, Doug and I have spotted a few hand-painted rocks left along the trail.
I'm guessing they're anonymous gifts -- or possibly clues for an ongoing treasure hunt? Either way, they've been placed there deliberately for someone else to discover and admire. These charming pieces of art always stop me on the path, reminding me that life's sweetest pleasures are often the ones we're not planning or expecting. ~CL
