Sycamore is a name which has been applied to several types of trees, but with somewhat similar leaf forms. The name derives from the ancient Greek συκόμορος (sūkomoros) meaning "fig-mulberry". Species of trees known as sycamore: Acer pseudoplatanus, a species of maple native to central Europe and southwestern Asia.(Wikipedia)
We all have a special something inside of us. People of different cultures and religious backgrounds have a number of names for this. It is an unseen, mysterious energy that all life has. Some call it Chi, or one’s life force.
After working a full day, my wife and I decided to take a car ride to our local county park. Here in Michigan, with our current Covid-19 stay at home order, we are allowed to spend time in local parks as long as people maintain our set social distancing guidelines.
I love and miss my wife! With both of our jobs, working as first responders of one type or another with the Covid-19 crisis, our schedules changed so we don’t have a single day off together anymore. This month will mark almost 25 years of friendship. Times like this really make you dig deep inside, but it is the love you share with a special someone that makes it all worth something! Take care everyone 🐼✌️🤙
Needed to get outside my house will the stay at home order in place. Order restrictions allowed for visiting other property so I headed to the family farm for some Rest and Relaxation.
This simple visual distortion kind of represents for me the number of feelings my mind is processing during these pandemic days of isolation.
During a pandemic, advice is doled out in broad generalizations despite individual differences.
This is the golf course where my father taught me about golf. I admit at the time, I didn’t appreciate the game. I was younger and enjoyed faster paced sports such as ice hockey, roller hockey, baseball and soccer.
Keeping an active mind, blogging, channeling negative energy into other positive creative outlets and maintaining a self-care routine are the ways I have learned work best for me to keep my light shining.
I have included an example of the artwork in which I have channeled some of the negative emotions into something I enjoy. I hope you enjoy this as well.
What are some of your favorite coping strategies during difficult times?

I’ve had my own personal daily challenges as a medical professional working through this global pandemic.
Together we can all get through this is we all do our part!
Take care everyone and be safe. ✌️🐼👍

I know I haven’t posted for awhile but I have been busy creating and enjoying life. I created this short video highlighting some of my most recent adventures.
Decided to try my go at some video shooting a few weekends ago. The weather was overcast, cold, and less than ideal for stunning photo shots.
Despite all of that, I decided to see if I could catch anything that caught my creative eye. I did find a lovely place to shoot and it started snowing just as I was setting up. Normally, I don’t like to fly in the snow for safety reasons, but the area was clear and safe.
I was really pleased with the final edit from this little adventure. This video clip is a good reminder for me that even in the darkest of days, if our minds are open and our hearts are centered, we can still find beauty to enjoy and share.
Hope Everyone Is Having A GREAT WEEK!
More snow here today...
Take care 🐼😊👍✌️

I apologize for not visiting my favorites blogs and posting much this month. I've been super busy at my real job and battling a bad cold 🥶. Probably from taking too many pictures like this 😂.
Hope to visit you all soon and have a blessed week !
I feel bad that I haven't had much time to post or follow all my Wordpress friends and artists lately. I've been very busy at work trying to "catch up" with this being my last week before the holiday break.
Here is a photo from this past fall, that I really like how it turned out. It was a foggy morning in Northern Michigan. You could feel the moisture and the chilled air on your face. The pines and outdoor air smelled fresh with dew and was miraculously uplifting to the senses.
Remember, if I don't get to your pages, remember I try and am thinking of all of my wonderful artists 🐼😊!
Happy Holidays Panda Pals !

Just bought 4 of the Iflight XING 2306 2450KV Motors for my next drone build.
I love the style and look of these motors and the purple color really pops in different lighting.
I hope they fly as good as they look.
Well this Panda has some building to do.
Have a great weekend Panda Pals!!!
