I've been thinking about this. I've been wondering if accepting surrealism as a personal philosophy would help diminish my anxiety. Sounds weird, huh? Part of what makes me anxious, is sometimes bumping up against my own headspace that feels, well, surreal...not grounded in a static form of reality. So I... Continue reading

I was up in northern VA Sunday, to see Eddie Izzard at the Warner theater. What a delight!! I love him! Since I got up there early, I checked into my hotel and spent a good bit of time wandering around with cameras. Here's a little collection from my Instax... Continue reading

...boxed up, behind glass, seeing potential but not feeling the ability to realize it. It's been a lot...returning from what was home to what is now home...that sense of isolation once again. But I'm tired with all the ruckus around tree limbs falling and power out...and the subsequent anxiety that... Continue reading

Just seven days ago I was hanging out with my sister, looking forward to the weekend with the whole family. Three thousand miles and a day or two past now...I'm back home. It was's always lovely to be with them all. I'm still learning to enjoy the moments together,... Continue reading

I should be packed by now...and my house cleaned. But I keep putting it off because, hey, there's time. Truth is, there is time, but I have historically been all about getting ready really early. This time, however...right now...I've gone through a few Instax mini scans of my garden readying... Continue reading

Last week offered a good stretch of sunshine...up to and including yesterday. It was time to pull out the digital and the 50mm lens and start this season's worth of garden documentation. I have been Instagramming the garden, but it's not the same...or maybe it is, I don't know. Anyway,... Continue reading

Or would that be, take my pick. On any given day I have around half a dozen kinds of creative output I could work on. As previously noted on another post, it's often difficult to know exactly what to work on to develop something significant. Sure, that's a lot of... Continue reading

...May day...entry into summer. I'm still working with older Polaroids, creating more sets for more books (or zines...still thinking these things through). I'm pretty pleased with this one and have many other favorite photos that will make nice little collections. There are a couple themes I'm working with and in... Continue reading

It seems only fitting that I should use up the last of my Fuji3000b during 'RoidWeek. I've been using this film for several years, during which time it became discontinued. Before I moved from California to Virginia, five years ago, I had stock piled a little over a dozen packs... Continue reading

I thought I'd give some AristaEdu 200 a go in my Holga. I liked that this film is more affordable than the Ilford I typically use...who doesn't like that? The only snag with it that I found, is that it wound onto the take up spool rather loosely. While this... Continue reading

Twice a year this comes up and for some reason surprises me every time it rolls around again. Every day it seems time flows by faster. It's almost May. I thought it was just the beginning of the year! Sometimes I wonder if my daily projects (in this case my... Continue reading

...boy I've been distracted. The weather forecasts for severe storms have really tripped me out (it's a long and boring story how I've landed in this position). So...I've been getting stuff together to go to a friend's this evening (food and entertainment supplies...i.e. drawing stuff). But...I got a little goodie... Continue reading

I'm not doing the work I need to do. Well, that's not entirely true...I am doing work that I feel is necessary. In my head, art making is my potential livelihood (whether or not that's a fantasy remains to be seen), so that should be what comes first. That's tricky,... Continue reading

to trade the fuzzy robe for the cotton one. to open doors and windows wide hearing more different bird calls than I can count. to observe seeds poking out of soil measuring plant's daily growth. the petals of blooms are starting to fall...that didn't last long. there's no denying transience...

I was away overnight, to go see a concert up in northern VA. If I had driven up with someone from Richmond, I wouldn't mind so much turning round and heading home late in the night. As it is, getting some sleep before driving again is always a good idea.... Continue reading

It was a lovely, lovely day out. I didn't get much done inside (I did get a few more scans for Blurb book #1 worked on, but then blew the rest of the day outside). The garden is such a great place to be, especially with this kind of weather...and... Continue reading

It's definitely looking like spring, with the dogwoods and redbuds now in bloom. The temps were very warm today...and there's a severe thunderstorm watch until 10pm tonight. Did we jump from winter to summer or something? I'm burning protection lie. I've become a bit, triggered shall we say, by... Continue reading

Hallelujah...there's sunshine this morning! After a day and a half of gray and sometimes wet weather, today has dawned with some lovely sunlight. Only a couple hours of yesterday were spent in the garden, on account of the chilly, dismal conditions, but I hope for better today. Granted, I need... Continue reading

I felt compelled to produce some actual, physical work again. Granted, I'm making my daily drawings and I'm using my Instax cameras quite a lot. That's not the same, though, as getting my hands a bit dirty and engaging the elements. I knew I had some really, really old pieces... Continue reading

I knew the undercounter fixtures in the kitchen needed some point. I thought I could eek out a little more time with them. But one fixture gave up the ghost and it was cheaper to replace them all than try to fix the one that went out. In addition,... Continue reading

...I wasn't sure if I might not be dying. I had an experience of heart palpitations, that just didn't go away like they usually do. This isn't unusual for me...heart palpitations. It's quite common, especially with post menopausal women (at least based on my rough observation). wouldn't go away... Continue reading
