I have spent a fair amount of time in hotels over the past few years. In fact, the time spent has been far more often and far less fun than I'd ever have imagined. The less fun part was just about travel back and forth between the coasts, when I... Continue reading

I was in Napa valley just shy of two months ago. It was the third week of August, the weather being warm and lovely. My daughter and son in law had arranged for myself and other family members to have a tour and tasting of a winery they like. The... Continue reading

For some time now, I've maintained the perspective that my photography, image making, artwork...heck, just the way I live my somehow less-than, than it used to be. I'll call this BD versus AD (before divorce/after divorce). Off and on, when I'm especially tired or sore or feeling unwell, I'll... Continue reading

Over time, something that I thought was so much a part of who I am gradually faded away. It's almost hard to believe I'm the same person when I board a plane now. Sure, getting to the airport on time, getting through security and making flight connections are still stressors,... Continue reading

I saw a video interview with Sandor Katz the other day. It was on a gardening channel I subscribe to on YouTube. Katz is such a lively fermentation enthusiast that I always get enthused...whether reading or listening to him. After watching that video, I went in search of others, finding... Continue reading

The first day of October started in the upper 40's! That's the coolest it's been in ages. The inside house temp was 65! Glory be! Perhaps autumn is ready to set in. I'm not turning on the furnace yet, though. It appears daytime temperatures may still climb into the 80's... Continue reading

Well, I did it folks. I committed to pictures every day September and I carried through. Creating habit for creativity is useful. It's hardly that I don't do something creative every day, but being specific has value. I've probably used my DSLR more in the past month than in the... Continue reading

It's Friday evening. After a busy day, finishing up the last book for RiTUAL and getting ready for the cyanotype class tomorrow, I'm beat. I've been battling a neck/headache all day too (please...someone come and rub my neck!!). But...Avery got her walk, and grocery shopping got done, and dinner is... Continue reading

Five of the six books I'll be sending in for the RiTUAL show in Philadelphia are complete. I'm going to work on the last one tomorrow...cyanotype. It's been fun to get going on this, which in turn has motivated and inspired me with other artwork. Continue reading

Got myself ahead of the game today! It started by committing to rising earlier. I would have been really on it, had that hour long wake up at three a.m. (no idea why that happened) not occurred. Why is it, when I finally get myself around to a strong intended... Continue reading

It was one of those days that I wished I had had my good camera with me. Instead, I just had my phone. So here are some cool images I took with my phone, and then with my good camera. It was a really busy afternoon and the day just... Continue reading

It's been a quiet Sunday. After my volunteer stint yesterday, and being all social, I'm actually really satisfied to be quiet at home. It was a pleasure to find lovely light coming in the windows this morning and I took advantage of that for these daily photos. Avery and I... Continue reading

It's the time of year when the sun starts shining into my windows again. The leaves are beginning to thin on the trees and the angle of sun is shifting to the south. I caught the various colors of a prism this morning, before I was off to a volunteer... Continue reading

Happy Autumnal Equinox, folks!! Sure, it was in the 80's here today, but the leaves are beginning to change, the shadows are getting longer, and there are now three pumpkins on my front porch. A cord of wood will be delivered in a few weeks and it won't be long... Continue reading

I've been working on some little single sheet books for a show up in Philly. Surprisingly, I actually managed to finish one and get a second one complete too. There's goyu paper and encaustic medium in the mix...a couple of my fave art supplies right now. I still may make... Continue reading

I managed to get myself to Aikido weapons practice this morning...6am! One of the numerous joys with this exercise is being able to see the sunrise and occasionally stop by Pony Pasture on my way home. Although the temperatures have been slightly above average for this time of year, the... Continue reading

Well, I was actually so busy today that I didn't get a chance to take pictures. I worked a lot on the yard, had errands to run and I helped out for a few hours at the dojo this afternoon/evening, even teaching the teen class. Now that I'm home it's... Continue reading

It never takes long to go from a trickle of change to a couple inches of fallen leaves. I see it happening almost daily now. From a distance it's just a fine line of progression from one day to the next, bits of yellow reflected from high up in the... Continue reading

I did NOT feel like taking any pictures today. After forcing myself up to grab my camera, the light of the afternoon proved at least a little inspiring... Continue reading

Not much picture taking going on today. A friend kindly visited and helped me solve some technical issues with my computer. In addition I had an extra pair of eyes to assess some of my recent encaustics to be specific. It was good to have supportive company while coming... Continue reading

It's that time of year. Actually, waiting until mid September is a little unusual for me...I have in the past, jumped on getting out fall decorations at the beginning of the month! This was a rather uninspired effort today. Not sure what's going on with me. There's a distinct unsettledness... Continue reading

Back in the day, BFB (before FaceBook), I used to check in on Flickr every morning. I'd see what creations my friends had made, what they'd observed in life, what was going on in their lives. Anyone else remember that? This morning I thought I'd take a little more time... Continue reading

I was moved to insert my literal self into this series. I haven't necessarily been avoiding it, but haven't felt called to do so either. It was time, apparently. Solace Continue reading
