Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Welcome to my blog world. This is a photo blog, poetry and short story blog about my life on Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings. I am also at my Facebook Page Island Rambles or Islandrambles at YouTube.

Golden Grove

A Golden Grove:

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Weekend Serenity

 Are you stronger now in the places where you were broken....life breaks us all into little pieces.....

This is my world here.....outside my broken window on the sky.....

Foggy Morning Universe

The morning of awareness......
It is a foggy morning in the universe of our minds, our souls, it is the beginning of the awakening......the changing......of being truly human. It is safe to change, to leave the old behind and begin again.  It is a journey we are all on together, we are on the mother ship, earth, always moving forward, seeking truth. Seeking knowledge.

The Bridge Between Us


Sometimes beauty overtakes you, you breathe it in and the stillness of that moment remains in your heart forever....

She wants to tell you all about being an indoor only cat and I want to give a Valentine to each of my readers.

Timeless Time

                                             Time for Ducks

Timeless...I wonder what time is, have we created it. What if there was no linear time at all...what if life just flowed like waves on the ocean and there were no deadlines, no appointments to keep, no schedules..we just lived breath to breath, sunset to sunrise.....would there be happiness there, would our worries be less, would we be free.

 The Mute Swan                 So Beautiful to Me

She is so beautiful but she is not wanted now.  She was introduced here.  She wants to belong to us but never will. We all need to belong on this earth.
