The holiday preparations deemed necessary this year, are few. No complaints! Today I shipped off the gifts for my dear hearts. That's really the only thing I felt was an absolute. Everything else, is icing! I'm home for this traveling and schlepping things back and forth between coasts, living... Continue reading

I've been running around the past week or and then a trip out for my mom's 100th birthday! Now I'm home and making the effort to create my own sense of normalcy. The holidays are fast approaching, but this year will be slow and relaxed. No travel, just home... Continue reading

It's been a very busy month or so. In addition to keeping up with the leaves, getting my artwork seen, hosting guests and before that traveling a bit, I've been volunteering and doing seasonal and gig related work. This year has definitely seen me pushing outward much harder than the... Continue reading

Just a quick check in to say I'll be back later with more posts throughout the month of December. Life has been different and busy. There's a lot to reflect on about 2017 which I hope to do in the coming weeks...some of that reflection may end up here (as... Continue reading

Returning to "normal" that is. For better or worse, I seem to be living my life from one event to the next. I give a class, I present my work, I got to California, I visit Delaware, a friend visits me, my family visits me...etc. etc. It's just how it... Continue reading

It finally feels like autumn. The temperatures have gone down enough to trigger just about all the trees into changing colors (although some trees have completely lost all their leaves). The Japanese maple outside my living room window flipped its switch and when I saw it this morning, it was... Continue reading

Yesterday was the anniversary of my marriage (now divorced). If we were still married, we would have been together 31 years. When we finally were not living under the same roof, we had been together for 27 years. It's hard for this date to escape my notice. You know, FaceBook... Continue reading

That's what my Activity app told me I've walked today. Ninety percent of that distance was traveled right in my own yards. The leaves are falling in earnest now, often floating down in drifts when there's a stiff breeze. The clean up is moderately hard work. It takes time, especially... Continue reading

It pleases me to be posting black and white film images to Flickr again. Not that all that many people look at my pictures (the story of the way Flickr "used to be" is a tired horse), but I don't keep posting there for views. But anyway, film is my... Continue reading

Time marches on. Halloween has passed and today is already November 2nd. This is just a brief check in with a few pictures from the holiday. I've been triggered/scattered/something recently. Money (related to health) issues...ugh. Anyway, I'm processing through it, facing those many demons inside me that say boo and... Continue reading

I seem to crave it...coziness. It's always been an innate need, which was shared and expressed all the years I had a home with family. Now I'm on my own, and I still can't help making the effort to create a warm and nurturing environment. Of course, perhaps this is... Continue reading

It's finally beginning to feel a bit like autumn...of and on anyway. Ove the past couple months it's been cool, hot, humid, dry, cool again, warm again, and then a torrential downpour during last night (which has been very much needed). Thankfully, it wasn't an all out thunderstorm nor as... Continue reading

It always kind of sneaks up on me....Polaroid Week. I think it comes up twice a year, in April and October. This time around I decided to use my Instax camera and film (as long as it's instant film it's all good). In April I used Fuji 3000b in my... Continue reading

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
