Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography



In the winter of my life

Let me be as this evergreen


Sturdy in conviction

My face looking upwards


With arms reaching out


Embracing life


Offering support


To any and all who come near.


Passing on lessons learned

To future generations.

Photos taken of trees on my street after a winter storm in February, 2010.
