We had this idea that we’d get up really early, do all of our errands and then return home by 9:30 a.m. with the day ahead of us…it looked like this… 8:00 a.m. leave home…dark and pouring… head south to Kinkos to make 20 more Christmas cards…(NOBODY in the store at 8:00 a.m.) Lifesource next…florals […]
The First Day of Winter
Today I was able to enjoy the images as Christmas steams toward us…like the view from the parking garage on the way to yoga.. the Christmas village at Gerry and Pug’s Magic at the Mill the new Fuji Polaroid film… hanging out with Whistler’s father.. and the mail that brought word from loved ones near […]
I don’t think I have the medical condition that Makes you SAD on the longest night/shortest day of the year…but I look forward to the return of light in a BIG way… As soon as the festivities are over, I begin to think of making new work and doing new things…the excitement of the possibilities […]
Blog Sloth Admission
I’ve been lazy in the blog department but then…no time to write and nobody has time to read so, what the heck…and then it hasn’t been inspiring weather, you know?

It’s been foggy…R got this amazing picture the other day…down by the river… I got a tour of the new Children’s Room remodel at the Salem Public Library… was on a panel for city club talking about interesting places in Salem, places of community…(with stellar panelists Sarah Evans, […]
Four More Days!
Well, it’s true. the week before Christmas isn’t the “bloggiest” time of year. Life takes over and examining the life comes second or maybe 15th on the to-do list. Here’s what the week looked like…Carwash… kitchen retro-fit… Fruitcake! Christmas… We’re almost ready! You?
There is nothing more numbing than a long narrative of what somebody else has been doing…sort of like an over-long Christmas letter…but images, well, always good for some of us. So, images only, this is what my week has held…
Playing With the House
What a nice day today. For one thing, it started out sunny with the light streaming in… …and a few fun things were on the schedule…home things… Back in 2012 at this time, I was getting ready for ankle surgery and being off my feet for three months. R put lights on the trees outside […]
