Happy birthday my friend !
I understand what you say.
Life is such a hard yet simple balance.
love you xoxoxo

Oh Margie, you are actually one of my best inspirations on how to get absorbed in the outside world - instead of cultivating you ego! You give us a lot to ponder and marvel in this department :o)

But I can totally relate to this photojournalist's experience - it can be so good to just drift into this beauty, without even feeling the need to share it in a picture, or in words.

So I wish you a happy, joyful birthday, and a new year full of love and beauty - more than ever :o)


Happiest of Birthdays to you!

Happy, Happy Birthday wishes and wishing you a small bit of all the joy you so freely give. Hugs....


Happy birthday, Margie! You are a true treasure in this world, and I value all of the things you have taught me and inspired me to see. I love the stillness that you capture in your photos, but I also agree with your assessment. Here's to experiencing life through our own lens(es). Hugs, Pat


That's a beautiful story and good reminder to take the time to live, look and appreciate.

Thank you for how you share the sweet moments of your life and the magic you find in the natural world. You help all of us open our eyes even more. A big birthday hug! xx


Happy birthday Margie! Hope you are loved and celebrated well today! Your art, your eye and your love of nature and family inspires me every time I come to visit your space. You are a gift to blogosphere and I thank you for sharing that part of you.

I was flying home from Montreal to Vancouver at the end of March and ended up watching that movie twice on the plane. Simply for the scenery and that fact that that particular scene impacted me as well. There is a deep truth to the message.



beautiful wishes for yourself on your birthday. you are a lovely inspiration to me and my creativity.

happy day to you


Yes - I have "missed" so much always documenting family events....
Happy, happy birthday Sonia's friend :)


Happy birthday to the sweetest, kindest soul I know. Love you Margie xoxo

There you are giving again (the story) and it's your birthday!
Happy birthday. So often I've missed photo opps because I've wanted to be in the moment instead of being outside of it. I never thought of creativity as ego...just could never hold it back . It's important to ponder and new concepts are wonderful. Enjoy your day.


Happy birthday to you, to my sister and to my dad who passed away six years ago today. I love the road to getting rid of the ego.


A wonderful, wise intention for one's birthday. Have a happy one!!


And live, you must!


Very best wishes on your special day

Happiest Birthday! I agree with everyone else, what an inspiration you are. THANK YOU for your beautiful space and the beautiful things you share. Be well!


Happy Birthday! I hope it is lovely and the year to come wonderful and full of experiences.


Wishing you a most happy birthday, Margie and many happy returns of the day. Funny how my tea tag today read: When ego is lost, limit is lost. Now I know I was meant to share these words with you:) Thank you for your perspective on this beautiful world we live in.

Best wishes for you.


Again, I send you my best birthday wishes, sweet lady. I will definitely have to check out that movie!

(oh, and the marathon I'm running is in October... Hopefully we'll see each other before then!)


Happy happy Birthday! And Happy "second half"! Interesting quote. I have never come across it before but it is sooo true (coming from someone well entrenched in the "second half"!) You have the gift of seeing the world and the beauty held in tiny bits of it with a uniquely perceptive eye and I for one appreciate that you share that gift with the world. Certainly my own life has been enriched by it.


Today is my birthday too! I'm so happy to learn that we share it! <3


As usual, I am late to the party, but I still want to wish you a happy birthday. I love that your photos are of that which usually gets rejected or hidden. And yet it is very real nonetheless. I hope it isn't a reflection of how you are feeling! Unless it means you are ready for the renewal Springtime brings?

Oh my gosh, how did I miss this beautiful, evocative post. I wished you Happy Birthday on facebook, very but belatedly may I say the same here.
