Welcome to my author & photography page. "I write, teach piano, take lots of pictures and make jewelry. A creative soul with a rescue dog."

My name is Ellen DuBois and I've been writing since I can remember. I began writing poetry as a child and as I got older, my poems, stories, lyrics, etc., grew with me. Whenever I had to sort out my feelings, I turned to writing - and still do. Whether pen and paper, my old Smith-Corona typewriter (a high school graduation gift), or my computer, writing has been a constant, faithful companion.

So has the hobby of taking pictures. I find photography to be an incredibly relaxing, spiritual experience. So, I've incorporated my picture taking into my blog. It's a part of me and what I see that I'd like to share with you.

I also welcome you to visit my author page on Amazon, Ellen M. DuBois, on Amazon.com by clicking here.

Thank you, be well and God Bless! Ellen

The View From Up There

by Ellen DuBois on 09/20/19

Beyond the wing


Peaceful view


Green and blue view


Over a pond


What a beautiful day for flying. I couldn't help but feel excited as my fiance and I took off on an early, warm September day. I hadn't been up for a while and it was exhilarating as I felt the six-seater Beechcraft Bonanza smoothly lift from the runway.

Nice.

It was a view I'd seen many times. Hangars and planes below grew smaller and streets turned into tiny grid marks below. The earth seemed a patchwork of colors, varying in shape and size. Small ponds and lakes reflected the sky above.

Of course my camera was in my lap, battery charged. I couldn't wait to take some pictures. It's not every day I'm able to capture such beautiful views.

It's peaceful up in the air and I love looking at the world from above. You cant beat the view from up there.

Can't wait until the foliage is in full color!

About me:  My name is Ellen DuBois, born and raised in Massachusetts. I love New England with its changes in seasons and natural beauty.

I'm the author of I Never Held You: Miscarriage, Grief, Healing and Recovery and Jackie's Heart. Since 2006 I've been hosting MiscarriageHelp.com, a support site for women and their families who have miscarried.

I'm published with Blue Mountain Arts, and am a contributing author to several books including: Soul Matters for Teens, Sisters, (a Blue Mountain Arts gift book), Conquering Panic and Anxiety Disorders- Success Stories, Strategies and other Good News, Romancing the Soul, More God Allows U-Turns.

I'm also known as "Miss Ellen"- a piano teacher to students from 5 to tween and beyond. Music is another passion of mine and I'm blessed to share the gift of music. I'm also a shudder bug like my mother was. I love taking pictures.
