Wondering about the hummingbirds present throughout my blog?hummingbird Web LOGO point left

I’ve selected the hummingbird as a visual reminder of the way I choose to live my life both personally and in working with others. Native to North, South and Central America, hummingbirds have been referred to as New World birds and as might be expected have become associated with a number of symbolic and cultural meanings throughout the centuries.

With love, peace and joy in life as a common thread, the hummingbird is seen as adaptable and resilient due to its ability to tirelessly fly great distances relative to its physical size.

The hummingbird also carries with it the spiritual significance of resurrection. This comes as a result of the hibernation-like state it goes into at night only to return to life in the morning continuing its work of flitting from one nectar-filled flower to another spreading new life in its wake.

The hummingbird as a symbol can inspire us in many ways. To love and enjoy the sweetness of life; to remain persistent in pursuing our life passions; and to take comfort in knowing that not only can we be a part of bringing new life to others, it also awaits us at every turn.

Peace,  Leigh+

My Story

I sold my house in the suburbs this past summer and moved into a chateau… a 32’ Thor Chateau motorhome that is.  Fulfilling a long held desire to travel about (and get the heck out of the suburbs!) this is also an opportunity to delve deeper into the many facets and cultures that exist here in North America.  With a background in psychology and religion, along with a never-ending sense of curiosity, this will allow me to play cultural anthropologist along with providing the time necessary for writing and continued development of my photography skills.

This website will be one way to stay connected with all the friends and family back home as well as post photos and write about the adventure.  You can contact me via email:

I hope you’ll come back often and visit!
