Pinky Troll and me on a personal quest
Happy holidays to friends and visitors. If you've noticed the date of my last post you'll have figured out I've been absent for a while. There were some things I needed to take care of and they all seem… Read full post »
Spider Lilies, Lycoris radiata, in our back yard—volunteers that appear every year and last just a few days—a startling metaphor for lives cut short and all too brief.
I sat out on the back deck this morning. I was finally able to sit out on/… Read full post »

A continuation of thoughts On Photography

A Preamble of Sorts
Single pretty Calico seeks warmth by osmosis. 3 yr old, fixed (NOT interested in sex--platonic rel only), not overly plump, willing to settle for heating pad. No dogs need apply. Will not respond to name Popper, will respond to the sound of food. You can assume… Read full post »
The book signing for Sarah Palin in Dallas this past Sunday was a non-event. I showed up about midday to talk with the Barnes & Noble store director—to see if I could get access as a photographer. It was nice that she remembered me from my… Read full post »
